Port-Angeles, Washington Logo Design

Each and every new Port-Angeles organization knows they need a logo, but few entrepreneurs entirely are aware of the vital role their logo design will play in their success, or why one logo design works more effectively than another. A business logo has an immediate and long term impact on the financial success of a company, select the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of an organization.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Port-Angeles, Washington coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening in an older section of town and hoped to cast a retro feel without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs by creating a custom logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and also germs made for Port-Angeles, Washington clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that works with the laboratory evaluation of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the only instance I recollect in which I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite literally, yet it does it in a way that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping green frog developed for a family enjoyable center in Port-Angeles, Washington.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually reflect an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they utilized for advertising and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - developed for Port-Angeles, Washington traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather convey emotional experiences through the images they record. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design by employing the positive space in the design to say one thing and then at the same time using the negative space to expand upon what was communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Port-Angeles logo but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Port-Angeles logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I really enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A but the customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get objective opinions on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they loved the concept and were able to reason with him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to insert every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo design recognize how important a logo is for their business so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo design project possesses it’s share of obstacles, however the greatest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, design for Port-Angeles, Washington book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most important part of a printed book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the book shop. Concerning a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever get to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems that in many cases 1 of the aspects individuals often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young new venture commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a spirit of flight and it was surely a victory.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Port-Angeles, Washington, layout consist of an arc with lines converging through it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that every single dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

I actually love doing dental business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a household not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in elevation to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to explain exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style produced for a hair design studio including a script font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo which conveyed a sense of peace and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design that did not go the obvious direction of creating just a stylized orchid but instead delivered a business logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is generally the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the focus on the feeling that they wanted to project to their customers.

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a connection in between the software program and hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the symbolism behind a company logo is just as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell off their previously owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

Luckily, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st shot.
