POINTERS FOR IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design company offers a money back guarantee try to remember that they can’t refund the time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature real world samples chances are they will not be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s goal is to reflect your unique vision for your organization. If a designer isn’t focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they can get paid.

QUALITIES OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Every new Prichard company understands that they probably need a logo, but few start ups entirely grasp the essential role their organization’s logo will play in their becoming successful, or why one logo design works far better than another. A company logo has an instant and sustaining impact on the financial success of a business, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Prichard companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require consideration, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable business logo will stay legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel right, and they are suitable for the item or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of marking something to make sure that it could be distinguished, its foundation originates from the mark burned onto livestock. Nowadays a brand symbolizes basically anything with an objective, whether it be revenue or politics, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the value of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are both from the exact same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest targeted at a target audience, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the target market will likely connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When someone states the names Lamborghini or Mustang what we think of is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a vehicle with 4 wheels that can move us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals buy those products. Brand image is why people purchase specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the history of most branding firms you’ll find that they are quite often rebranded advertising companies. When someone claims they are in advertising and marketing most people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that focuses on a type of visual design that helps form the perception of a firm, a product or a company. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some identity designers also develop sites as well as software interfaces. The important duty of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and also a psychological tone with the goal of affecting activities, results as well as understandings.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Prichard coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were launching in an older part of the area and wished to visualize an old-fashioned feel without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I achieved both of these tasks by means of developing a custom logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria developed for Prichard medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which works with the clinical examination of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I recall in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Usually I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, 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 explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that makes it more captivating, more attention grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a family fun center in Prichard.

Cool Springz | 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 also a project that is way out of the usual of the types of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have 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 integrate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually reflect an atmosphere 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, in the end 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 mood.

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 believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - created for Prichard traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather reveal emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something very similar to this logo by employing 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Prichard logo but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Prichard logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A however my customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members did not share his scorn for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased assessments on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they really 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo design understand how important a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo job has it’s allotment of hurdles, however the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Prichard book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, but it is the most crucial part of a printed book due to the fact that it is usually the first thing a person views in the book shop. With respect to a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will ever have to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo developed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with the bars changed to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems like that in many occurrences one of the traits individuals usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a feeling of air travel and it was surely a success.

 Prichard logo layout used for advertising as well as a label design for Vintage Case features an archaic typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for music instruments, which looked to be much older cases. For this custom logo concept I strove to come up with a logo that offered a fluid retro feel to it and could be utilized for everything from a web page to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different era.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Prichard, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that virtually every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but 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 industry.

I really enjoy doing dentistry business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular area of the 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 design that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in height to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts 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 conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to describe how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that describes itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a Prichard hair design workshop including a script font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design that carried a feeling of contentment and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious course of crafting simply a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is usually the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the focus on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo design created for a steed cattle ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian show steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo created a unique custom logo concept tailored to illustrate the unique physical traits of the Arabian type of equines. With a distinctive head form and high tail posture, the Arabian is one of the most quite easily identifiable equine breeds in the world.

Las Coffee shop logo style a small restaurant, style consists of a modified manuscript font which hovers over a team of ornate lines as well as dots.

Logo style for a software application developer the design features as well as iconic Prichard aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it represented something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the meaning supporting a logo design is just as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

Advance logo style developed for a Prichardindoor designer, design function a collection of red circles that converge as well as replace the letter O in the center of the logo style.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Prichard business logo design featuring a fisherman 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 over 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly knew the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a spot to sell their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Prichard business logo design using a graphic that garners the attention of vehicles and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this Prichard company logo style has an area incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo concept wasn’t really developed for an Prichard regional farm it was actually devised for a products broker, and this particular company logo was one of multiple that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to generate a graphic that projects self-confidence, effectiveness, and wealth.

 Prichard Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo layout feature for outwardly encountering arrowhead and also the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the liberty to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without knowing where the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the very first try.

Logo design designed for the use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is evocative a well-known Prichard sports team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked closely with the proprietor to develop a logo 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 sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
