POINTERS ON FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design firm offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can not reimburse the amount of time you invest which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t contain real life examples chances are they will never be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to echo your personal vision for your business. If a logo designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

Antelope LOGO DESIGN​

For over twenty years ImageCo has been helping start ups and entrepreneurs cultivate notable brands. We have performed branding work for mechanics, educational institutions, heart surgeons, wedding singers, restaurants, retailers, and practically every other kind of business you can envision. What makes us different compared to typical graphic designers is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every logo design project as though it will be used as an electric sign. As a result of our sign first strategy our identity designs can, and have been used in everything from garment labels to billboards. Our sign first method guarantees that our logo designs are equally effective whether they are used in TV commercials or web applications, they are consistently recognizable, understood, and remembered regardless of size or use.

American Made ★ Design

Something that truly sets ImageCo apart from other design agencies that you may have stumbled upon online, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every project we are retained to perform, we do ourselves. No matter the type of design project we undertake, logo design, website, trade show display, or retail sign, we do not, and never will job out our customer’s work to agencies based outside the United States. When you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a broker that increases the price of your project and determines the conditions of how we conduct business.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Antelope company realizes that they need a logo, yet few new business owners thoroughly recognize the pivotal role their organization’s logo will make in their becoming successful, or the reason that one business logo works far better than another. A company logo has an immediate and long term influence on the growth of a company, select the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Antelope companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need contemplation, they can be understood in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo design will stay legible and just as emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which work on any sort 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 brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be lasting and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark as well as the process of noting something so that it can be distinguished, its foundation originates from the brand burned onto animals. Today a brand symbolizes pretty much anything with a motive, regardless if it be profit or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are all from the exact same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition directed at a specific audience, it’s goal is to create a mental image that the target market can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and identity design. When a person states the brand names Lamborghini or Mustang what we think about is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car with 4 wheels that can carry us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that is what makes people want those brands. Brand image is why people identify with most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the beginning of most branding companies you’ll find that they are often rebranded advertising and marketing companies. When a person claims they are in marketing most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a designer that concentrates on a kind of visual design that helps shape the image of a company, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and also pamphlets. Some identity designers also design websites as well as software interfaces. The important role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of influencing actions, results and also perceptions.

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Antelope coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually launching in an older section of the town and wanted to project a retro tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished both of these tasks by developing a business logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs made for Antelope medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of healthcare which works with the clinical evaluation of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Normally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather literally, but it does it in a way that integrates 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 enhancement to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and more memorable.

logo layout with a jumping green frog made for a family fun facility in Antelope.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really resonate 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 title itself to provide the logo a much more lively high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - developed for Antelope traveling digital 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 rather niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead communicate emotional journeys by means of the photos they record. The thought behind this logo design was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they often share 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 resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something comparable to this logo by using 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Antelope logo design but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Antelope logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project 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 but my client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his aversion for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his 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 include 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 concept.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo comprehend how vital a logo is for their business so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo design project possesses it’s portion of hurdles, however the most significant challenge is identifying 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 customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Antelope publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, yet it is the most critical part of a printed book considering that it is usually the primary thing a person views in the book store. Regarding a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity they will likely ever get to promote their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

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

Air LA logo made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with benches modified to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it seems that in many instances 1 of the aspects individuals tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a spirit of air travel and it was surely a victory.

 Antelope logo design made use of for advertising and marketing and a tag layout for Vintage Case features an old font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for musical instruments, that appeared to be antique cases. For this logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another generation.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Antelope, style include an arc with lines converging via it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs considering that it appears that every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dentists do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an image 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 dentistry profession.

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

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

William McNally logo design developed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 personalities startled in elevation to represent a family 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 depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people 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 about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to describe how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a Antelope hair style workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo which conveyed a spirit of contentment and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious direction of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo design that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is in most cases the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the emphasis on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian steed logo layout created for a steed ranch that specializes in reproducing Arabian program horses.

Logo layout for a software program developer the style attributes and also renowned Antelope element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive operations. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge in between the software and hardware.

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

Evolve logo style created for a Antelopeindoor designer, layout feature a series of red circles that intersect and replace the letter O in the middle of the logo design.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Antelope business logo layout featuring an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents 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 Antelope logo design along with an image that pulls in the interest of traffic and sends an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour 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.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Antelope company logo design has a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem design wasn’t really composed for an Antelope area farm it was in reality designed for a commodities broker, and this company logo was one of a handful of that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to design an identity that projects self-confidence, success, and luxury.

 Antelope Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo layout function for outwardly facing arrowhead and the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the flexibility to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without knowing where the target is. Fortunately, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the first go.

Logo created for making use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is reminiscent of a famous Antelope sporting activities team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked closely with the business owner to create a logo which worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
