TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be judged by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t feature real world examples odds are they will not be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

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

QUALITIES OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Every new El Dorado Hills company understands that they need a logo, but few start ups fully understand the crucial role their company logo will perform in their success, or precisely why one business logo performs more effectively than another. A company logo has a critical and long-term effect on the prosperity of a company, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help El Dorado Hills companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the item or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be lasting and should 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 and the process of marking something so that it could be distinguished, its genesis comes from the brand branded onto animals. Nowadays a brand represents practically anything with an objective, regardless if it be profit or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the worth of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are each from the very same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition targeted at a target market, it’s objective is to produce a mental image that the audience will likely connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person states the brand names Lamborghini or Corvette what we think about 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, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that is what makes people purchase those products. Brand image is why individuals get 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 most branding companies you’ll discover that they are quite often re-branded marketing companies. When somebody says they are in marketing many people will likely have an idea about what they do. Yet when a person says “I am in branding”… it just sounds more attractive, possibly it’s due to the fact that the majority of people do not know what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and kind of sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that describes the visual elements of a product or business that affect understandings. This primarily includes the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors utilized yet can also consist of sound, lighting, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, felt or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps form the image of a business, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and also collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and also sales brochures. Some identity designers also develop sites and also user interfaces. The necessary role of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the objective of influencing activities, end results and also understandings.

Retro logo layout of a bike developed for a El Dorado Hills coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening up in an old part of the area and really wanted to visualize a vintage feel without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved both of these jobs by means of creating a logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and germs designed for El Dorado Hills medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare that works with the laboratory evaluation of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is really the only instance I recollect in which I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves 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 attention grabbing and much more memorable.

logo design with a jumping green frog designed for a family members fun center in El Dorado Hills.

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 norm of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dentists, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for El Dorado Hills travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead convey emotional experiences by means of the photos they record. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories through 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 frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be communicated with mere words. I tried to do something similar to this logo design by making use of 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  El Dorado Hills logo but also to show the depth in her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 El Dorado Hills logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer 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 but the client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced judgements on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they loved the concept and were able to persuade 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their business logo comprehend how vital a logo is for their company so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of hurdles, however the largest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for El Dorado Hills 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 vital part of a published book considering that it is ordinarily the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will ever get to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, colorful and eye-catching and it leaves 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 design has 2 letter A's with benches changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it seems that in many instances 1 of the aspects consumers tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a good sense of flight and it was surely a winner.

 El Dorado Hills logo style utilized for marketing and also a tag design for Vintage Instance features an old-fashioned typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be vintage cases.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in El Dorado Hills, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects considering that it appears that each and every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything 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 related to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

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

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

William McNally logo design made for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters surprised in height to stand for a family unit with in the design.

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 folks in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be overly literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to summarize how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo design produced for a El Dorado Hills hair style workshop including a script font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a business logo which communicated a spirit of serenity and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which did not go the obvious course of making simply a stylized orchid but instead delivered a company logo that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is in most cases the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the emphasis on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a connection in between the software program and hardware.

The business logo 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 describe anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it represented something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo is just as important as how it serves the business it represents.

A El Dorado Hills business logo design including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands 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 realized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a location to sell off their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their El Dorado Hills business logo design with a graphic that garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design that they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the liberty to investigate 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. Fortunately, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st shot.

Logo design made for the use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font style that is evocative a renowned El Dorado Hills sports team logo.

I’ve created dozens of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked directly with the business owner to develop a logo design which worked really well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
