TIPS ON PICKING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design company presents a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they simply cannot reimburse the amount of time you commit which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not contain actual samples chances are they will not be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to mirror your unique vision for your business. If a designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they can get paid.

QUALITIES OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Echo Park entrepreneur knows they need a logo, yet few new business owners thoroughly grasp the vital role their logo design will make in their financial success, or exactly why one logo functions more effectively than another. A company logo has a critical and long term effect on the prosperity of a company, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Echo Park companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not need contemplation, they can be understood in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that function 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 right, and they are suitable for the item or organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be lasting and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person mentions the names Porsche or Corvette what we consider 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 the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people want those brands. Brand image is why individuals buy 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 look back at the beginning of most branding companies you’ll find that they are quite often rebranded marketing companies. When somebody states they are in advertising the majority of people will likely have an idea about what they do. Yet when somebody says “I am in branding”… it just seems much more attractive, perhaps it’s since the majority of people do not fully understand what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and kind of attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that defines the visual elements of a product or agency that influence perceptions. This primarily consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the colors utilized but can additionally consist of audio, lighting, texture, signage, just about anything that can be seen, touched or heard are part of a brand identity.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Echo Park coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening in an old section of the city and hoped to visualize an old-fashioned atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks via creating a business logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also germs developed for Echo Park medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which deals with the laboratory evaluation of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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 business logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, but it does it in a way that integrates 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 name that makes it more interesting, more attention grabbing and much more memorable.

logo style with a leaping green frog designed for a family members enjoyable center in Echo Park.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of jobs 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 which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better enthusiastic high energy mood.

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 and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - made for Echo Park 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 believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather convey emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently tell whole 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 which can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design by making use of 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 hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Echo Park logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Echo Park logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I truly savor and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A but my client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members did not share his aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced viewpoints on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo design recognize how vital a logo design is for their business so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo job has it’s share of difficulties, but the biggest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Echo Park book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, however it is the most crucial part of a published book considering that it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the book shop. With respect to a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will ever have to advertise their label 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 developed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches modified to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart nevertheless it looks like that in many occurrences 1 of the things individuals usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a good sense of airline flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Echo Park logo layout used for advertising and marketing and a tag style for Vintage Instance features an old font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for music instruments, which seemed to be vintage cases. For this brand design I attempted to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could easily be used for anything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different era.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Echo Park, style consist of an arc with lines converging via it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that every single dentist 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 fields when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

I really love doing dentist logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and eventually I created a layout that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities staggered in height to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his community. The majority of 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 very 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 never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to summarize specifically how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a Echo Park hair layout workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that carried a feeling of serenity and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious route of creating merely a stylized orchid but instead designed a logo that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is oftentimes the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the main focus on the perception that they wanted to project to their clients.

Logo layout for a software programmer the design functions and iconic Echo Park element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and disk managing. The kernel attaches 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 program and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone pertaining 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 many cases the substance behind a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the company it represents.

A Echo Park business logo style featuring 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 companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly knew the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a spot to market their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Echo Park logo design utilizing an illustration which grabs the interest of vehicles and sends an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this Echo Park company logo design has a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the liberty to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where the target is. Fortunately, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the first try.

Logo designed for using an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is evocative a well-known Echo Park sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve crafted loads of restaurant logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project where I worked directly with the owner to produce a logo design which worked extremely 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 lighted sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
