TIPS ON PICKING 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 remember that they can’t reimburse the time you commit which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature real life samples chances are they will never be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

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

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Huntington Beach company understands that they probably need a logo, but few start ups entirely understand the crucial role their logo design will play in their financial success, or why one business logo performs more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and sustaining influence on the growth of a business, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Huntington Beach companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need contemplation, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will stay legible and just as emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel personal, and they are suitable for the product or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the act of noting something to ensure that it can be recognized, its foundation comes from the brand burned onto animals. These days a brand represents practically anything with an intention, regardless if it be revenue or politics, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are each from the exact same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest targeted at a specific audience, it’s objective is to create a mental image that the target market can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone says the names Lamborghini or Corvette what we think of 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 carry us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals want those brands. Brand image is why individuals buy specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the history of the majority of branding agencies you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded marketing agencies. When a person says they are in advertising lots of people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when a person says “I am in branding”… it just seems much more impressive, maybe it’s since most people do not know what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that describes the visual aspects of a product or business that affect understandings. This largely consists of the name, the logo, the product packaging, the different colors utilized yet can likewise include sound, lights, texture, signs, really anything that can be seen, touched or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that focuses on a type of visual design which helps shape the image of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, packaging, as well as collateral material such as cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some visual designers also design web sites and software interfaces. The essential duty of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of affecting activities, end results as well as perceptions.

select logos & signs

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Huntington Beach coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually launching in an older part of the town and hoped to visualize a retro feel without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks by means of developing a sign concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and germs made for Huntington Beach clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which deals with the clinical evaluation of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents very literally, yet it does it in a way 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 makes it more interesting, more focus grabbing and even more memorable.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a family enjoyable center in Huntington Beach.

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 sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really resonate an environment 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 title itself to provide 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 integrated him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I designed was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and also a tree - created for Huntington Beach 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 specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather reveal emotional journeys through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they often share entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be communicated with mere words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo by using 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Huntington Beach logo design but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Huntington Beach logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really 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 form as a stroke in the character A but my customer, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family did not share his hatred for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they adored 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo understand how essential a logo is for their company so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s allotment of hurdles, however the biggest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for Huntington Beach publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most essential part of a published book since it is often the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore. With regard to a publisher, it’s the best opportunity that they will ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, 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 in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it seems that in many occurrences 1 of the items folks often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle airline based 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 title lent itself well to imparting a good sense of air travel and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 Huntington Beach logo layout utilized for marketing and a tag style for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

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

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Huntington Beach, design include an arc with lines converging via it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it seems that virtually every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably include 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a household not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in elevation to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his community. 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 about 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 wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to explain how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a Huntington Beach hair layout workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a company logo that communicated a sense of serenity and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious direction of creating simply a stylized orchid but instead created a business logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is in most cases the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the main focus on the perception that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

Arabian equine logo layout created for a horse cattle ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian program horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo style for a software application developer the design functions and also famous Huntington Beach component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, 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 behaves as a bridge in between the software program and hardware.

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

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly knew the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Huntington Beach logo design design using a graphic that pulls in the interest of vehicles and sends an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Huntington Beach company logo design has actually an area included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem design wasn’t really created for an Huntington Beach area farm it was actually devised for a products broker, and this logo design was one of several that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was to create a image that projects assurance, success, and opulence.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

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 offers a designer the flexibility to investigate any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without knowing where the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo created for the use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is evocative a popular Huntington Beach sports group logo.

I have 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 bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked directly with the proprietor to produce a logo design that worked really 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 legible from over a block away.
