STRATEGIES FOR PICKING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design 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’t reimburse the amount of time you commit which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers 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 portfolio doesn’t contain real life 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 objective is to echo your unique vision for your organization. If a logo designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they will get paid.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Barstow Heights company realizes that they need a logo, however few start-ups thoroughly understand the essential role their logo can perform in their success, or why one business logo works more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and lasting influence on the success of a business, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Barstow Heights companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t need contemplation, they can be grasped in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from label to store signs a scalable business logo will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any 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 item or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the act of noting something so that it could be identified, its genesis originates from the mark branded onto livestock. Today a brand signifies pretty much anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the value of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are both from the same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest directed 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 by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody states the brand names Porsche or Corvette 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 carry us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, beauty, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that is what makes people want those products. Brand image is why people get most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the beginning of the majority of branding companies you’ll discover that they are frequently re-branded advertising and marketing firms. When a person states they are in advertising and marketing most people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a type of visual design that helps form the public image of a company, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, packaging, as well as collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some identity designers also build sites and also software interfaces. The necessary duty of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of influencing activities, results and perceptions.

select logos & signs

Retro logo style of a bicycle created for a Barstow Heights coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening in an older section of the community and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished both of these tasks by designing a trademark design that includes 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 microscope slide as well as bacteria designed for Barstow Heights clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that works with the clinical examination of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recall where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Normally I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents 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 an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members enjoyable center in Barstow Heights.

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 norm of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and legal professionals 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 company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really reflect 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 name itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy feeling.

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

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Barstow Heights traveling professional 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather reveal emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes convey whole stories using 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 conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something similar to this logo design by employing 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Barstow Heights logo but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design projects that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however the customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage them to share it with colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased assessments on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members 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 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 design.

Custom logo designs are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their business logo recognize how vital a logo design is for their business so they are way more vested in the final result. Every logo job has it’s allotment of difficulties, but the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Barstow Heights publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin slice of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most essential part of a printed book since it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the bookstore. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will ever get to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

This three color design is vivid, colorful and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it seems that in many instances 1 of the items individuals usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a feeling of flight and it was surely a winner.

 Barstow Heights logo design made use of for advertising and also a label style for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be much older cases. For this custom logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that provided a fluid vintage feel to it and could easily be used for anything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another point in time.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Barstow Heights, layout include an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can be one of the most difficult logo design projects because it appears that almost every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental offices do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration 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 dentistry industry.

I actually love doing dental care business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific 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 inevitably I created a concept that does not 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 design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters 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 brand identity design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design 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 illustrate exactly how individuals ought to 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 fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a Barstow Heights hair style studio 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 logo that related a spirit of peace and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious route of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a business logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is usually the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the focus on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Logo style for a software application developer the design functions and famous Barstow Heights component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and disk operations. The kernel attaches 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 I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance behind a company logo is equally as important as how it serves the enterprise it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a location to sell their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Barstow Heights logo design design using a graphic that captures the attention of vehicles and sends an image that invokes 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 graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Barstow Heights company logo design has actually an area integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

Good in that it provides a designer the opportunity to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without knowing where the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the first go.

Logo design created for the use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font style that is similar to a renowned Barstow Heights sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted dozens of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked directly with the business owner to create a business logo which worked extremely 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 lighted signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
