TIPS FOR IDENTIFYING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design firm presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can not refund the amount of time you invest which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be judged from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain real life samples chances are they will not be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s purpose is to echo your unique vision for your company. If a designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they can get paid.

When you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that marks up the price of your project and determines the terms of how my customers and I do business.

ASPECTS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Cathedral City company realizes that they require a logo, yet few new business owners entirely recognize the crucial role their logo will make in their success, or exactly why one business logo performs better than another. A company logo has an immediate and lasting influence on the viability of a business, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Cathedral City businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need consideration, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to store signs a scalable logo will stay legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which work 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 personal, and they are suitable for the item or organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the act of noting something so that it could be distinguished, its origin originates from the mark branded onto animals. Nowadays a brand represents pretty much anything with a motive, whether it be revenue or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are each from the very 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 specific audience, it’s goal is to produce an image that the target market will likely identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person mentions the names Ferrari 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 an automobile with 4 wheels that can move 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 sexy . That is brand image and that is what makes people buy those products. Brand image is why individuals get most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the origin of most branding firms you’ll find that they are often re-branded marketing agencies. When a person claims they are in marketing most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when someone says “I’m in branding”… it just sounds more impressive, perhaps it’s because most individuals do not fully understand what it means to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and perhaps even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual elements of a product or agency that influence view points. This primarily includes the name, the logo, the product packaging, the colors utilized yet can likewise include sound, lighting, texture, signage, just about anything that can be seen, felt or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a kind of visual design which helps form the public image of a firm, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some visual designers also build sites and also user interfaces. The important duty of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and a psychological tone with the goal of influencing actions, outcomes as well as understandings.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bike developed for a Cathedral City coffee cafe and also 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 wanted to visualize a vintage feel without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished the two tasks via creating a logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and also germs developed for Cathedral City medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which deals with the clinical evaluation of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Generally I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves very literally, but 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more appealing, more attention grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Cathedral City.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 types of projects that 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 gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually reflect 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better dynamic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for advertising and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I designed was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for Cathedral City travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather communicate emotional journeys by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they often convey entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something the same to this logo by employing 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Cathedral City logo design but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Cathedral City logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I truly savor and the Coastal Wireless project 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 concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A but my client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced judgements on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really loved the design 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to design their business logo understand how essential a logo design is for their company so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of obstacles, but the greatest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, design for Cathedral City book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, however it is the most vital part of a published book considering that it is usually the primary thing a person views in the book shop. For a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will ever have to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it looks like that in many cases one of the traits individuals tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a good sense of flight and it was surely a winner.

 Cathedral City logo style utilized for advertising as well as a tag design for Vintage Instance features an antiquated font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be vintage cases. For this business logo concept I sought to come up with a logo that had a fluid old style feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from another generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Cathedral City, layout include an arc with lines converging via it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects considering that it seems that virtually every dentist features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company 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 profession.

I really love doing dental care business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually 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 particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters staggered in height to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be far too literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to describe specifically how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo design created for a Cathedral City hair style studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo that conveyed a spirit of serenity and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious direction of crafting merely a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a business logo which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is oftentimes the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the importance on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian equine logo design developed for a steed cattle ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian program equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo layout for a software program developer the layout functions and legendary Cathedral City element 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 administration, process and task management, and drive management. The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a connection 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 couple of miles from the 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. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a logo design is just as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

A Cathedral City business logo layout including an angler in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of 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 retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly knew the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to market their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Cathedral City logo design with a graphic which garners the interest of vehicles and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor 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 picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this Cathedral City company logo design has actually an area incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo idea wasn’t actually composed for an Cathedral City area farm it was really designed for a products broker, and this business logo was one of a handful of that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was actually to make a graphic that projected assurance, financial success, and opulence.

 Cathedral City Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo style function for outwardly encountering arrow and also the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design they wanted, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the liberty to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without realizing where the target is. Luckily, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the first go.

Logo design made for the use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is similar to a well-known Cathedral City sporting activities group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed quite a lot of restaurant custom logo designs 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 believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked closely with the owner to create a logo design that worked extremely 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 sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
