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 keep in mind that they can not refund the time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but in the end a design agency can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature actual samples chances are they won’t be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to mirror your personal vision for your company. If a logo designer isn’t focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they will get paid.

We have undertaken brand identity design work for builders, schools, diamond miners, party planners, bistros, retail stores, and just about every other kind of business concern you can envision.

Our sign first technique guarantees that our logos are equally successful whether they are used in TV commercials or website apps, they are consistently recognizable, comprehended, and remembered no matter of scale or function.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which really sets ImageCo apart from other design agencies that you might have found on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are contracted to perform, we do ourselves. Regardless of the kind of project we undertake, business logo, web page, trade show banners, or electric sign, we do not, and never will job out our client’s projects to companies based outside the USA. Whenever you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a go-between that marks up the cost of your design project and dictates the terms of how my customers and I conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Every new Atwater entrepreneur understands that they need a logo, yet few start-ups entirely comprehend the pivotal role their company logo will perform in their success, or exactly why one logo design works better than another. A logo has an immediate and long-term effect on the financial success of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Atwater companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need deliberation, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable logo will stay legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which function 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 feel right, and they are suitable for the item or business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be ageless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is both a verb and also a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of noting something to ensure that it could be distinguished, its origin comes from the mark burned onto livestock. Today a brand signifies practically anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be revenue or political parties, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive sister, they are all from the exact same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition aimed at a target market, it’s objective is to develop an image that the audience can relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When someone mentions the brand names Porsche 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 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 brands. Brand image is why individuals get specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the history of a lot of branding firms you’ll find that they are often re-branded marketing and advertising agencies. When a person states they are in advertising and 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 type of visual design which helps shape the image of a business, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as sales brochures. Some visual designers also build sites as well as user interfaces. The necessary 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 assumptions.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Atwater coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening up in an old part of the area and really wanted to visualize a vintage feel without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled the two jobs by developing a trademark concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and germs designed for Atwater clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that researches the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that deals with the clinical examination of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Normally I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite 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 name that makes it more appealing, more interest grabbing and even more memorable.

logo style with a leaping green frog developed for a household enjoyable facility in Atwater.

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 sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t 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 provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

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 believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - created for Atwater travel 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 due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead communicate emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they often share whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo design by utilizing 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  Atwater logo but also to illustrate the depth in her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design jobs that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer 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 letter A but my customer, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get honest assessments on the value of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they adored 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their business logo recognize how important a logo is for their business so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project possesses it’s share of hurdles, but the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, layout for Atwater publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most crucial part of a published book given that it is in most cases the very first thing a person views in the book shop. For a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will ever have to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

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

Air LA logo created for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems that in many cases one of the items consumers tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a sense of air travel and it was definitely a victory.

 Atwater logo layout utilized for advertising and marketing and a label design for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be vintage cases. For this custom logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that had a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could easily be used for everything from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different point in time.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Atwater, layout include an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can 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 fields when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

I really enjoy doing dental care logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the families 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 overly literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style developed for a Atwater hair design studio featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design which communicated a feeling of ease and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious path of designing simply a stylized orchid but instead crafted a logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is in most cases the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the importance on the perception that they really wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian equine logo design created for an equine ranch that focuses on breeding Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo designed a distinct brand concept styled to exemplify the unique physical traits of the Arabian breed of equines. By having a distinctive head shape and very high tail posture, the Arabian is one of the very most immediately recognizable equine lineages in the whole world.

Logo layout for a software application developer the style features and also famous Atwater component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk managing. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a connection 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 business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance behind a business logo is equally as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

Progress logo layout produced for a Atwaterinterior designer, style attribute a series of red circles that intersect and change the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Atwater business logo layout including a fisherman in the center 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 goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to sell off their used products to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Atwater logo design design utilizing a graphic that captures the interest of vehicles and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

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

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo idea wasn’t actually designed for an Atwater regional farm it was really devised for a products broker, and this particular logo design was one of a handful of that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was actually to generate an identity that projected assurance, financial success, and affluence.

 Atwater Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo style function for outwardly facing arrowhead and the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design they desired, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the opportunity to investigate any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without recognizing where the target is. Luckily, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the very first shot.

Logo made for making use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is reminiscent of a well-known Atwater sports team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted loads of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bakeshops 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 proprietor to develop a business logo that worked really 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 which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
