Clarksburg Logo Design

Virtually every new Clarksburg business understands that they require a logo, yet few new business owners entirely grasp the crucial role their company logo can take in their success, or exactly why one business logo works more effectively than another. A logo design has a critical and sustaining effect on the financial success of a company, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Clarksburg businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require consideration, they can be grasped in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any sort 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 company they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be timeless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Clarksburg coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee shop were launching in an older section of the town and hoped to visualize a nostalgic vibe without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved both of these tasks by designing a symbol concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria designed for Clarksburg clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the triggers and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which works with the laboratory assessment of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is really the only instance I recall where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather literally, yet it does it in a fashion that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping green frog designed for a family enjoyable center in Clarksburg.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun 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 projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an environment 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better lively high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - created for Clarksburg travel digital 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 field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather reveal emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they frequently tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo by making use of the positive space in the design to voice 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  Clarksburg logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Clarksburg logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I really take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really 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 shape as a stroke in the character A however my client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his hatred for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage 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 benefit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they loved the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to include every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo realize how crucial a logo is for their organization so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo project possesses it’s share of obstacles, but the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Clarksburg book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, however it is the most crucial part of a published book since it is often the initial thing a person views in the book store. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever have to advertise their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

Air LA logo made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches changed to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go yet it seems that in many cases 1 of the traits people tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a sense of air travel and it was undoubtedly a success.

 Clarksburg logo style used for marketing and also a label design for Vintage Case includes an archaic font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo created for an orthodontist in Clarksburg, style consist of an arc with lines converging via it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs due to the fact that it appears that every single dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

I really enjoy doing dental business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo designed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities startled in height to represent a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the families in his city. The majority of 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 far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to summarize how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that describes itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair style workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design that related a feeling of peace and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious route of making just a stylized orchid but instead designed a logo that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is usually the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the attention on the perception that they wanted to project to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive operations. The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a connection between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism behind a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the business it stands for.

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly knew the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a spot to market their pre-owned products to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Clarksburg logo design dsign along with an image which garners the attention of vehicles and sends an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

The MQ farms company logo design wasn’t actually composed for an Clarksburg regional farm it was in reality created for a products broker, and this business logo was one of many that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

I’ve designed loads of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, 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 great project in which I worked closely with the business owner to design a logo design that worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
