STRATEGIES FOR SELECTING THE BEST 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 bear in mind that they can’t refund the amount of time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be judged by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not contain real world examples odds are they will never be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s goal is to mirror your personal vision for your organization. If a designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how soon they can get paid.

ASPECTS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Danville company knows they need a logo, but few start ups fully realize the vital role their logo will make in their success, or precisely why one logo design performs more effectively than another. A logo design has an instant and lasting effect on the prosperity of a company, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Danville businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to store signs a scalable business logo will be legible and just as emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any type of 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 ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of noting something to make sure that it could be identified, its origin comes from the mark branded onto livestock. Nowadays a brand symbolizes pretty much anything with a motive, whether it be profit or political parties, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy cousin, they are both from the same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition aimed at a specific audience, it’s goal is to develop a mental image that the audience will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When someone states the names Ferrari 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 move us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people want those products. Brand image is why individuals acquire specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the origin of the majority of branding companies you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded marketing companies. When someone claims they are in advertising and marketing the majority of 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 Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that concentrates on a type of visual design that helps form the perception of a firm, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and also collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as pamphlets. Some visual designers also build sites as well as software interfaces. The essential function of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and also a psychological tone with the goal of affecting actions, outcomes as well as perceptions.

select signs/logos

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Danville coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening in an older part of the area and hoped to cast a nostalgic tone without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled the two tasks by means of creating a business logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide as well as germs developed for Danville clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which deals with the laboratory assessment of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the sole instance I call to mind in which I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo style with a jumping green frog developed for a household fun facility in Danville.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 usual of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually resonate 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for Danville travel 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 niche field of photography and I think it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather convey emotional experiences by means of the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they often share entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be communicated with mere words. I made an effort to do something similar to this logo by making use of 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  Danville logo design but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Danville logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however my client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his aversion for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get objective point of views on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their logo realize how important a logo design is for their organization so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s share of hurdles, but the greatest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, design for Danville publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, however it is the most necessary part of a printed book due to the fact that it is often the first thing a person sees in the book store. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will likely ever get to advertise their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go nevertheless it seems like that in many cases 1 of the things people usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a good sense of airline flight and it was certainly a victory.

 Danville logo design used for advertising as well as a tag style for Vintage Case features an archaic font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in new cases for musical instruments, which looked to be vintage cases. For this logo concept I sought to come up with a logo that had a fluid retro feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different point in time.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Danville, style include an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that virtually every dentist includes 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 professions when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless 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 really enjoy doing dental logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout 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 client the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in elevation 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 representative of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be very 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 don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to illustrate precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a Danville hair style workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo which conveyed a spirit of ease and connection for their new hair studio. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious route of crafting simply a stylized orchid but instead crafted a logo design which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is frequently the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

Arabian horse logo style created for a steed cattle ranch that focuses on breeding Arabian show equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo style for a software program programmer the layout functions and legendary Danville aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and disk operations. 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 bridge between the software and computer hardware.

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

A Danville business logo style including an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

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 recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a spot to sell their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Danville business logo design along with a graphic which garners the attention of vehicles and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

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

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem design wasn’t really created for an Danville regional farm it was really created for an investments broker, and this company logo was one of a handful of which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was really to create a graphic that projects assurance, financial success, and luxury.

 Danville Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo design attribute for externally dealing with arrowhead and the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design that they preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the flexibility to delve into any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without knowing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular instance, I nailed a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo design made for using an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script typeface that is similar to a popular Danville sporting activities group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking in which I worked closely with the proprietor to design a business logo that worked extremely well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
