POINTERS ON DETERMINING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design company presents a money back guarantee try to remember that they can not refund the amount of time you invest which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

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

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and remembered, and it’s goal is to echo your personal vision for your company. If a designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they can get paid.

For over 2 decades ImageCo has been helping business owners cultivate unforgettable brand identities. We’ve done brand design work for farmers, schools, heart surgeons, party planners, coffee shops, retailers, and virtually every other kind of business you can envision. What makes us unique compared to traditional designers is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every logo design project as if it will be employed as an electric sign. As a result of our sign first method our identity designs can, and have been employed in everything from garment labels to electrical signs. Our sign first method ensures that our logos are equally successful whether they are used in television commercials or web headers, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and remembered no matter of size or use.

American Made ★ Design

Something that seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you probably have stumbled upon in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are contracted to do, we do ourselves. Irrespective of the type of design project we undertake, logo design, web site, trade show booth, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will contract out our client’s work to 3rd parties located outside the United States. Whenever you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the price of your project and dictates the terms of how you and I do business.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Antioch company understands that they probably need a logo, yet few start ups fully comprehend the key role their business logo will perform in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo design performs more effectively than another. A business logo has a critical and long-term impact on the growth of a business, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Antioch companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need scrutiny, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to billboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which function 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the product or organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

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 marking something to ensure that it can be distinguished, its origin originates from the brand burned onto animals. These days a brand symbolizes virtually anything with an intention, whether it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are both from the same family, the distinction 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 aimed at a target audience, it’s objective is to develop an image that the audience will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody mentions the brand names Porsche 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 freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people want those products. 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 we can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the history of most branding companies you’ll discover that they are frequently rebranded marketing firms. When a person claims they are in marketing most people will likely have an idea about what they do. Yet when someone claims “I am in branding”… it just seems more impressive, possibly it’s because lots of people do not understand what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and perhaps even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that explains the visual aspects of a product or business that affect perceptions. This largely consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors used but can likewise consist of sound, lighting, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, touched or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a type of visual design that helps form the perception of a firm, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, as well as sales brochures. Some identity designers also design web sites and software interfaces. The crucial function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the objective of influencing activities, results and also understandings.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Antioch coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening in an older section of the community and wanted to cast a vintage atmosphere without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished both tasks via developing a company logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs developed for Antioch clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which deals with the laboratory assessment of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the only instance I recollect in which I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather literally, however it does it in a fashion 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 appealing, more interest grabbing and more memorable.

logo style with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members enjoyable facility in Antioch.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dentists, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really reflect an environment 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they used for promotion 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 fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Antioch travel professional 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 pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead project emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently share entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo by using 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Antioch logo but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Antioch logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A but my client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his contempt for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of 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 honest judgements on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they loved the design 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo realize how important a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo project has it’s share of challenges, however the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions 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 in the background, design for Antioch book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, however it really is the most important part of a printed book because it is ordinarily the primary thing a person views in the book store. For a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will likely ever get to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it seems like that in many instances 1 of the traits individuals usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a sense of airline flight and it was definitely a success.

 Antioch logo layout made use of for advertising as well as a tag layout for Vintage Instance features an old font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be antique cases. For this logo design I strove to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid retro feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a web page to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Antioch, design consist of an arc with lines converging with it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that virtually every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dentists do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

I actually love doing dental business logos 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 solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately 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 suggested in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities surprised in elevation 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 representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images 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 discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to describe how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a Antioch hair design studio including a script font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a company logo which communicated an atmosphere of ease and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious path of making just a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo design that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is frequently the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the main focus on the perception that they wanted to project to their patrons.

Arabian steed logo style produced for an equine cattle ranch that focuses on breeding Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo crafted a one-of-a-kind custom logo design customized to symbolize the unique physical traits of the Arabian pedigree of horses. With an unique head form and very high tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the highly easily recognizable horse types in the whole world.

Las Cafe logo layout a little dining establishment, style consists of a customized manuscript font which floats over a team of luxuriant lines as well as dots.

Logo design for a software designer the design functions and also iconic Antioch component 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 management, process and task control, and hard drive management. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge between the software and hardware.

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

Develop logo design created for a Antiochinterior developer, design function a series of red circles that intersect as well as change the letter O in the center of the logo design.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

Interior design is a diverse occupation that includes conceptual development, space planning, site inspections, programming, study, interacting with the stakeholders of a project, building and construction management, and implementation of the design.

A Antioch business logo design including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly recognized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a place to sell off their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Antioch business logo design with an illustration which captures the interest of vehicles and sends an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I knew 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 peaceful habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Antioch company logo style has actually a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo concept wasn’t really created for an Antioch regional farm it was in reality developed for a commodities broker, and this creative logo was one of many that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to produce an identity that projects self-assurance, success, and affluence.

 Antioch Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo layout attribute for outwardly encountering arrow and the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design they wanted, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the opportunity to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of recognizing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the 1st shot.

Logo made for the use of an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font style that is similar to a famous Antioch sporting activities group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked closely with the proprietor to produce a logo design that 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 neon sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
