TIPS FOR SELECTING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business 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 simply cannot reimburse the amount of time you invest which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be judged by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain actual examples odds are they won’t be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to echo your personal vision for your business. If a designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they will get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Colton business realizes that they probably need a logo, yet few start ups fully realize the vital role their logo will make in their success, or why one logo works far better than another. A company logo has an instant and long-term effect on the success of a business, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Colton companies prosper, 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 deliberation, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo design will stay legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which work 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 product or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be ageless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of marking something to make sure that it could be recognized, its origin comes from the brand branded onto animals. Today a brand indicates pretty much anything with an objective, whether it be earnings or political parties, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the worth of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are each from the exact same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition targeted at a specific audience, it’s objective is to produce an image that the audience will identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody states the brand names Porsche or Mustang what we think of is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of an automobile 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, elegance, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes people want those products. Brand image is why people buy most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the origin of the majority of branding firms you’ll find that they are frequently rebranded marketing and advertising firms. When somebody claims they are in advertising most individuals will likely have an idea about what they do. Yet when a person says “I’m in branding”… it just sounds much more attractive, perhaps it’s because many people don’t understand what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that explains the visual components of a product or company that influence view points. This primarily consists of the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the colors utilized however can also include audio, illumination, texture, signage, just about anything that can be seen, felt or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that focuses on a type of visual design that helps shape the image of a firm, a product or a company. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some identity designers also build web sites as well as software interfaces. The vital role of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the objective of influencing activities, results as well as understandings.

select logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Colton coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were opening in an old part of the city and hoped to cast a nostalgic vibe without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both tasks by developing a trademark design that uses 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 layout with a microscope slide and germs made for Colton clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that studies the root causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which works with the laboratory examination of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Usually I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents very literally, but it does it in a fashion that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that helps make it more appealing, more attention grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Colton.

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

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more dynamic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and included 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 transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Colton travel digital 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 niche field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but rather project emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they frequently tell 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 frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design by utilizing 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Colton logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Colton logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless 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 certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A but the client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his scorn for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get neutral opinions on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really liked the design and were able to persuade 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo recognize how essential a logo design is for their company so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo project possesses it’s allotment of challenges, however the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, design for Colton publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, but it is the most crucial part of a published book considering that it is usually the initial thing a person sees in the book store. For a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will likely ever have to spotlight their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems like that in many occurrences 1 of the things folks tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a spirit of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 Colton logo style utilized for marketing as well as a label layout for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, that appeared to be older cases. For this custom logo design I tried to come up with a logo that provided a fluid vintage feel to it and could be used for anything from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different point in time.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Colton, design consist of an arc with lines converging with it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most difficult logo projects because it seems that virtually every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated 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 dental industry.

I actually love doing dentist logos 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 delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a concept that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be far too literal with regards to 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 company or organization wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to explain precisely how individuals 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 fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout created for a Colton hair style studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a business logo that carried a feeling of contentment and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious direction of creating just a stylized orchid but rather delivered a logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is generally the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the focus on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

Arabian horse logo layout created for a steed ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian show steeds.

Logo design for a software application developer the design functions and famous Colton element 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 drive managing. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions 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 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 represented something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it serves the enterprise it represents.

Evolve logo layout developed for a Coltoninterior designer, style attribute a series of red circles that intersect and also change the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

A Colton business logo style featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies 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 understood the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a location to sell off their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Colton logo design using an illustration that garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Colton company logo layout has an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t actually produced for an Colton regional farm it was really created for a products broker, and this particular company logo was one of many that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was to make a image that projects esteem, success, and affluence.

 Colton Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo layout feature for outwardly encountering arrowhead as well as the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design they wanted, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the flexibility to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without understanding where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the first go.

Logo developed for making use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is similar to a renowned Colton sporting activities group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant 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 favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked directly with the owner to develop a logo 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 neon sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
