Puyallup Logo Design

Every new Puyallup business realizes that they require a logo, yet few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the essential role their logo design can perform in their financial success, or the reason that one logo design works better than another. A business logo has an immediate and long-term influence on the growth of a company, go with the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Puyallup businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand contemplation, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any type of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are exclusive, and they are suitable for the enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo needs to be lasting and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

Retro logo style of a bicycle created for a Puyallup coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were launching in an old section of the city and wanted to project a nostalgic tone without appearing as boring or low energy. I accomplished both of these tasks by creating a trademark design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide and also germs created for Puyallup medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which works with the laboratory evaluation of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the sole instance I call to mind where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves very literally, but it does it in a fashion 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more interesting, more attention grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Puyallup.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really reflect an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this 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 dynamic high energy atmosphere.

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

digital photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Puyallup travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead convey emotional experiences by means of the photos they record. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently tell entire 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 often have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something comparable to this logo design by utilizing the positive space in the design to suggest one thing and then at the same time using the negative space to expand upon what was conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Puyallup logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Puyallup logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A however the client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members did not share his hatred for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get neutral point of views on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they really liked the design 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo comprehend how essential a logo is for their company so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of hurdles, however the most significant obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, layout for Puyallup book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most essential part of a printed book since it is often the first thing a person views in the book shop. Regarding a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity they will ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

This three color design is vivid, colorful and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo design created for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with the bars modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it seems that in many occurrences one of the things consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a good sense of air travel and it was surely a victory.

 Puyallup logo layout made use of for advertising and marketing and also a label design for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be vintage cases. For this business logo design I strove to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be utilized for everything from a website to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another era.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Puyallup, style include an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo design projects considering that it appears that almost every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

I actually love doing dentist logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo designed for a household not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters surprised in height to represent a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to explain specifically how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a hair style studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo that related an atmosphere of simplicity and class for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious course of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo design which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is oftentimes the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the importance on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

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

A logo design including an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly recognized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a spot to sell off their previously owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Puyallup logo dsign using an illustration that pulls in the attention of vehicles and sends an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo design created for using a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script typeface that is similar to a renowned sports team logo.

I’ve crafted dozens of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked closely with the owner to develop a logo which worked very well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
