TIPS ON CHOOSING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can’t reimburse the amount of time you commit which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design firm can only be evaluated by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not feature real life samples chances are they won’t be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to echo your personal vision for your business. If a designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

We have undertaken branding work for builders, universities, heart surgeons, wedding singers, restaurants, retailers, and practically every other kind of business concern you can think of.

The thing that truly sets ImageCo apart from many of the design agencies that you probably have stumbled upon online, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are retained to perform, we perform ourselves. No matter the type of project we accept, brand identity design, web site, trade show exhibit, or electric sign, we do not, and never will farm out our client’s work to companies located outside the US. Whenever you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that marks up the price of your design project and dictates the terms of how my customers and I do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Every new Dublin organization understands that they need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly grasp the key role their logo can play in their success, or the reason that one logo performs better than another. A logo design has a critical and long term influence on the success of a business, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Dublin businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require scrutiny, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo will stay legible and just as emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that work 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 company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb and also a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of noting something to ensure that it could be recognized, its genesis comes from the brand branded onto livestock. Today a brand symbolizes virtually anything with an objective, regardless of whether it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are all from the same family, the distinction 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 competition targeted at a specific audience, it’s goal is to produce an image that the target market can connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When a person states the brand names Porsche or Corvette what we think about is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car with 4 wheels that can carry 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 brand image is what makes individuals purchase those brands. Brand image is why people acquire specific brands, 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 origin of most branding firms you’ll discover that they are quite often rebranded marketing and advertising agencies. When someone states they are in marketing most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a type of visual design which helps shape the image of a firm, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as sales brochures. Some identity designers also develop web sites and software interfaces. The important role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of influencing actions, end results and assumptions.

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Dublin coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening in an old part of the community and really wanted to cast a retro vibe without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved both jobs via designing a logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and germs made for Dublin medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that studies the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that deals with the clinical evaluation of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Normally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, however it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 interest grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo style with a jumping environment-friendly frog made for a household fun center in Dublin.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun 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 types of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental offices, 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 business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better enthusiastic 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 utilized for advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Dublin traveling 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 specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather reveal emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they frequently share entire stories through 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 resonance that can’t be communicated with mere words. I attempted to do something comparable 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Dublin logo design but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Dublin logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I seriously enjoy 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 the client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members did not share his hatred for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased point of views on the value of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they really loved the concept and were able to reason with 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo comprehend how vital a logo design is for their company so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo job possesses it’s allotment of challenges, however the largest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, layout for Dublin publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped parcel of real estate to work with, but it is the most important part of a published book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the bookstore. Concerning a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals 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 developed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with the bars modified to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart but it seems that in many occurrences 1 of the traits folks usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest fledgling commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a sense of air travel and it was definitely a winner.

 Dublin logo layout used for marketing and also a label layout for Vintage Instance includes an archaic typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for musical instruments, which appeared to be older cases. For this logo concept I sought to come up with a logo that had a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could be used for anything from a website to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different point in time.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Dublin, layout consist of an arc with lines converging via it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects because it appears that every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practitioners 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 recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

I really enjoy doing dental business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and subsequently I created a design that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 characters surprised in height to stand for a family with in the layout.

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 residents in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to illustrate how people should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo design produced for a Dublin hair design workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design which related a spirit of serenity and class for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious direction of making merely a stylized orchid but rather designed a logo design that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is usually the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the emphasis on the feeling that they wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian steed logo layout produced for an equine cattle ranch that focuses on breeding Arabian show equines.

Logo layout for a software program developer the style functions and also iconic Dublin element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk managing. The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a connection between the software program and computer hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the symbolism behind a logo design is just as important as how it serves the enterprise it represents.

Progress logo style created for a Dublinindoor designer, design function a series of red circles that intersect and replace the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Dublin business logo layout including an angler in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly understood the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell off their secondhand products to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Dublin business logo design along with an illustration which garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Dublin company logo layout has actually a field integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo idea wasn’t actually designed for an Dublin area farm it was really developed for an investments broker, and this business logo was one of a handful of that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to produce a graphic that projected self-confidence, success, and luxury.

 Dublin Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo layout feature for externally dealing with arrow and also the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they wanted, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the freedom to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo design created for using an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is evocative a well-known Dublin sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant business 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 think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked directly with the proprietor to create a business logo which worked very 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 illuminated signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
