TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be evaluated from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain real world examples chances are they won’t be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to echo your unique vision for your company. If a designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how soon they will get paid.

We’ve done brand identity design work for farmers, universities, heart surgeons, wedding singers, coffee roasters, retail stores, and just about every other kind of business you can envision.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which truly sets ImageCo apart from many of the design firms that you might possibly have stumbled upon in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are hired to perform, we perform ourselves. Irrespective of the kind of project we undertake, business logo, business website, trade show banners, or electric sign, we do not, and never will job-out our client’s work to agencies located outside the USA. Whenever you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the price of your project and determines the conditions of how my customers and I conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Boyle Heights entrepreneur understands that they require a logo, yet few new business owners entirely realize the essential role their logo design can make in their success, or the reason that one business logo functions far better than another. A logo design has an instant and long-term influence on the success of a business, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Boyle Heights companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need scrutiny, they can be comprehended in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable logo will continue to be legible and just as emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo needs to be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of noting something so that it can be identified, its genesis comes from the mark burned onto animals. These days a brand symbolizes pretty much anything with an objective, regardless of whether it be revenue or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are each from the exact same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising 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 market, it’s goal is to produce a mental image that the audience will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When someone mentions the brand names Ferrari or Mustang 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 car with 4 wheels that can deliver us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals purchase those brands. 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 a lot of branding agencies you’ll discover that they are frequently re-branded marketing agencies. When someone claims they are in advertising lots of people will likely have an idea about what they do. But when somebody claims “I’m in branding”… it simply sounds more impressive, maybe it’s due to the fact that lots of people do not recognize what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual aspects of a product or company that affect view points. This mainly includes the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors used yet can additionally include sound, illumination, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, felt or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps form the perception of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some visual designers also design web sites as well as software interfaces.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Boyle Heights coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were launching in an old part of the area and wished to cast a vintage atmosphere without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled the two tasks via designing a custom logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and germs created for Boyle Heights clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that deals with the laboratory assessment of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is really the only instance I recall in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite literally, however it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 interesting, more attention grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog developed for a family enjoyable facility in Boyle 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 also a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege 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 include a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design 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 better dynamic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they utilized for marketing and advertising. 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.

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for Boyle Heights travel 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead project emotional journeys by means of the images they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes share entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something the same to this logo design by making use of 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Boyle Heights logo design but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Boyle Heights logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A however my client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his aversion for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased assessments on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they adored the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to incorporate every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo realize how important a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s share of difficulties, but the greatest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Boyle Heights book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin segment of real estate to work with, however it really is the most crucial part of a published book because it is ordinarily the first thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever get to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart however it seems like that in many instances one of the traits people usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a feeling of flight and it was definitely a winner.

 Boyle Heights logo design used for advertising and marketing as well as a label layout for Vintage Situation includes an archaic font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be much older cases. For this business logo concept I strove to come up with a logo that offered a fluid vintage feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a web page to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another era.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Boyle Heights, style 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 projects due to the fact that it appears that every single dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business advertising, if restaurants 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 most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental industry.

I really enjoy doing dentistry logo designs 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 offered such an opportunity and inevitably 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 implied in the design. 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 made for a household nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in height to stand for a family unit 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 logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people 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 with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to explain precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a Boyle Heights hair layout studio including a script font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo which projected a sense of simplicity and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design which did not go the obvious course of making just a stylized orchid but rather designed a company logo that suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is in most cases the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the focus on the perception that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive management. The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection between the software program and computer hardware.

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

A Boyle Heights business logo style featuring an angler in the center of the name casting a fly towards the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly recognized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Boyle Heights logo design design using an illustration that garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew 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 serene habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Boyle Heights company logo design has a field integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand design wasn’t actually composed for an Boyle Heights area farm it was actually created for an investments broker, and this particular business logo was one of a handful of that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was to generate a brand mark that projected esteem, effectiveness, and opulence.

 Boyle Heights Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo style feature for externally encountering arrowhead and also the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the liberty to investigate any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without realizing where the target is. Fortunately, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo design made for using a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is reminiscent of a popular Boyle Heights sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have created loads of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project where I worked directly with the owner to develop a logo design which worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
