POINTERS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design firm presents 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 design firms talk a good game but inevitably a designer can only be judged from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain real world samples odds are they won’t be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be understood and remembered, and it’s objective is to reflect your personal vision for your business. If a logo designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they will get paid.

QUALITIES OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Citrus Heights business knows they need a logo, but few start-ups thoroughly realize the essential role their company logo can perform in their success, or why one logo functions more effectively than another. A logo design has an instant and long term impact on the financial success of a company, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Citrus Heights businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to store signs a scalable business logo will stay legible and equally emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any 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 organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s both a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the act of denoting something to make sure that it could be recognized, its genesis originates from the brand burned onto animals. Nowadays a brand represents basically anything with a motive, whether it be profit or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the value of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are both from the same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition directed at a specific audience, it’s goal is to produce a mental image that the target market can relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When someone states the names Ferrari or Corvette what we consider 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 deliver us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, beauty, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals buy those brands. Brand image is why individuals identify with most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the beginning of a lot of branding firms you’ll discover that they are frequently rebranded marketing and advertising agencies. When someone states they are in marketing many people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt 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 public image of a business, a product or a business. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some visual designers also develop web sites and also user interfaces. The vital function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the goal of influencing actions, results and assumptions.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Citrus Heights 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 town and wished to project a retro atmosphere without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs by developing a logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and also germs made for Citrus Heights medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that deals with the laboratory evaluation of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Usually I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents very literally, yet it does it in a fashion 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 appealing, more focus grabbing and more meaningful.

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

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 also a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that 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 incorporate a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a more dynamic high energy impression.

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

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - made for Citrus Heights 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 rather niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead project emotional journeys through the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design by utilizing 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Citrus Heights logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Citrus Heights logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client 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 however my client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his hatred for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial assessments on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo design realize how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, but the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender segment of real estate to work with, yet it is the most necessary part of a printed book due to the fact that it is usually the primary thing a person views in the book shop. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

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

Air LA logo designed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with benches customized to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it seems that in many instances 1 of the things folks often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a sense of flight and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 Citrus Heights logo style utilized for marketing and a tag style for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for musical instruments, which looked to be older cases. For this logo design I strove to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could easily be utilized for everything from a website to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another point in time.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Citrus Heights, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design projects because it appears that every single dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness 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 dental industry.

I actually love doing dental logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a layout 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 concept. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a family members nonprofit, the logo includes 4 personalities startled in elevation 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 custom logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be overly literal with regards 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 business or institution wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The goal of a logo 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 purpose of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo design developed for a Citrus Heights hair style workshop 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 required a business logo that conveyed a sense of contentment and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a design which did not go the obvious direction of creating just a stylized orchid but instead created a logo which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is in most cases the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the focus on the perception that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian equine logo style produced for a horse cattle ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian program equines.

Logo design for a software program developer the design features as well as renowned Citrus Heights component of a bridge to the left of the name.

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 computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge 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 couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone with regards to 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 quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo is equally as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

Advance logo style created for a Citrus Heightsindoor developer, style attribute a series of red circles that intersect and also replace the letter O in the center of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Citrus Heights business logo design including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a location to market their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Citrus Heights logo design design using a graphic that captures the interest of traffic and projects an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

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

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo idea wasn’t actually created for an Citrus Heights area farm it was actually designed for a commodities broker, and this creative logo was one of a handful of which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to design a graphic that projects confidence, effectiveness, and wealth.

 Citrus Heights Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo layout feature for externally facing arrow and the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design that they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the flexibility to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo developed for making use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script typeface that is reminiscent of a renowned Citrus Heights sporting activities group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked directly with the business owner to create a logo design that 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 illuminated sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
