POINTERS FOR IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can’t refund the amount of time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be determined from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature actual samples odds are they will never be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s objective is to reflect your unique vision for your organization. If a logo designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how soon they will get paid.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Catalina Foothills business understands that they need a logo, however few start-ups fully recognize the essential role their logo design will play in their financial success, or why one business logo functions better than another. A logo has an immediate and lasting effect on the prosperity of a company, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Catalina Foothills companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require deliberation, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will remain legible and equally emotive at any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which work on any type of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel personal, and they are suitable for the product or organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark as well as the act of noting something to ensure that it could be distinguished, its foundation comes from the mark burned onto animals. Nowadays a brand indicates practically anything with an objective, whether it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the worth of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s attractive cousin, they are all from the exact same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing are about 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 goal is to produce a mental image that the audience will likely identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody says the brand names Ferrari or Corvette what we think of is their brand image, it’s an image that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a vehicle with 4 wheels that can transport us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals want those brands. Brand image is why individuals identify with specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the origin of a lot of branding companies you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded marketing firms. When someone claims they are in advertising and marketing most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. But when somebody claims “I’m in branding”… it simply sounds much more attractive, maybe it’s because most people don’t recognize what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that defines the visual elements of a product or business that affect view points. This mostly consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors used yet can additionally include audio, illumination, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, touched or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that specializes in a type of visual design that helps shape the perception of a business, a product or a company. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and also pamphlets. Some identity designers also design websites as well as user interfaces. The necessary function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and also a psychological tone with the goal of influencing activities, results and assumptions.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a Catalina Foothills coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually launching in an older part of town and really wanted to project an old-fashioned atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs by means of creating a business logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also germs created for Catalina Foothills clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which deals with the laboratory examination of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Generally I attempt not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves quite literally, however it does it in a way that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that helps make it more captivating, more interest grabbing and much more memorable.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Catalina Foothills.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, probably 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 which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and 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 include a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really 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, ultimately 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 design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for advertising and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I created was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for Catalina Foothills 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo by utilizing 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Catalina Foothills logo design but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Catalina Foothills logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I honestly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A but the customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his hatred for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased viewpoints on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they adored the design 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo comprehend how vital a logo is for their business so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo job has it’s allotment of challenges, but the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Catalina Foothills publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, yet it is the most important part of a published book given that it is often the first thing a person sees in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever have to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

This 3 color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems like that in many occurrences one of the aspects consumers usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a sense of air travel and it was surely a victory.

 Catalina Foothills logo design made use of for advertising and marketing and a label style for Vintage Case features an antiquated font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be antique cases. For this business logo design I tried to come up with a logo that offered a fluid retro feel to it and could be used for every thing from a web site to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different generation.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Catalina Foothills, design consist of an arc with lines converging through it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it seems that each and every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo 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 dentistry profession.

I really love doing dentistry business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately I created a concept that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be overly literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly 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 explain precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal 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 instantly understood and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout created for a Catalina Foothills hair layout studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a company logo which related an atmosphere of ease and class for their new hair studio. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious direction of designing simply a stylized orchid but instead delivered a business logo that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is oftentimes the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the emphasis on the emotion that they wanted to project to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo style produced for a steed cattle ranch that focuses on breeding Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software program developer the design functions and also legendary Catalina Foothills component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive operations. 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 bridge in between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance behind a business logo is equally as important as how it serves the organization it stands for.

Advance logo design produced for a Catalina Foothillsindoor developer, design feature a series of red circles that intersect and replace the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly realized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a spot to market their pre-owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Catalina Foothills logo design along with an illustration that garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Catalina Foothills company logo layout has actually a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo idea wasn’t really developed for an Catalina Foothills area farm it was in reality created for an investments broker, and this particular creative logo was one of a handful of that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to make a image that projected self-confidence, financial success, and luxury.

 Catalina Foothills Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo layout feature for ostensibly facing arrowhead and the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design that they wanted, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the liberty to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without recognizing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo design developed for using an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is similar to a renowned Catalina Foothills sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve crafted quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked directly with the business owner to design a logo design which 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 neon sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
