TIPS FOR SELECTING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design firm presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they simply cannot refund the time you invest which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be evaluated from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain real life examples chances are they will not be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s objective is to reflect your personal vision for your company. If a designer isn’t focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they can get paid.

We’ve undertaken logo design work for farmers, colleges, diamond miners, wedding singers, cafes, retailers, and practically every other kind of business you can envision. What makes ImageCo different compared to our contemporaries is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every design as if it will be employed as an electrical sign.

Our sign first method guarantees that our logos are just as successful whether they are used in television commercials or web applications, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and always remembered irrespective of scale or application.

American Made ★ Design

The thing which really sets ImageCo apart from many of the design companies that you might possibly have encountered in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are retained to do, we do ourselves. No matter the type of project we accept, logo, business website, trade show exhibit, or electric sign, we do not, and never will job out our customer’s projects to organizations located outside the United States. When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the cost of your project and imposes the conditions of how my customers and I do business.

QUALITIES OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Koreatown business realizes that they need a logo, but few start ups fully understand the pivotal role their company logo can perform in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo performs better than another. A company logo has an immediate and lasting impact on the financial success of a business, pick the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Koreatown companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need scrutiny, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable logo design will be legible and equally emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function 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 personal, and they are suitable for the item or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo needs to be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the act of noting something so that it can be identified, its origin comes from the brand burned onto animals. Nowadays a brand represents virtually anything with an objective, regardless if it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of defining the worth of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are all from the very same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition aimed at a target audience, it’s objective is to create a mental image that the target market will identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When a person mentions the names Lamborghini 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 a car with 4 wheels that can transport 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 exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals purchase those products. Brand image is why people purchase specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you reflect on the origin of the majority of branding firms you’ll discover that they are frequently rebranded advertising and marketing companies. When a person states they are in advertising many people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. But when somebody claims “I am in branding”… it just sounds much more impressive, possibly it’s due to the fact that lots of people don’t understand what it means to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that defines the visual components of a product or business that influence view points. This mostly includes the name, the logo, the product packaging, the colors utilized yet can likewise include sound, lights, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, felt or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a designer that concentrates on a kind of visual design that helps form the image of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and collateral products such as business cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some identity designers also build sites and also user interfaces. The necessary role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of influencing activities, results and also perceptions.

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a Koreatown coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening up in an old section of the area and wished to visualize an old-fashioned vibe without coming across as boring or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks via developing a company logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscope slide and germs developed for Koreatown medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the clinical examination of samplings of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recall in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves quite 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 explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that helps make it more captivating, more focus grabbing and even more memorable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a family fun facility in Koreatown.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo 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 give the logo a much more dynamic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they utilized for advertising and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I did was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Koreatown travel digital 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality because travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather communicate emotional experiences through the photos they record. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something very similar to this logo design by utilizing 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Koreatown logo but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Koreatown logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design projects that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly 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 form as a stroke in the letter A however the client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family did not share his scorn for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased viewpoints on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really loved 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 choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo design recognize how essential a logo is for their organization so they are much more vested in the outcome. Every logo design job possesses it’s allotment of obstacles, but the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Koreatown publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, yet it is the most essential part of a printed book because it is usually the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will likely ever get to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

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

Air LA logo design created for an airline 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 depart nevertheless it seems that in many instances 1 of the aspects folks tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a spirit of airline flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Koreatown logo layout made use of for advertising and marketing as well as a label design for Vintage Instance features an archaic font style layout.

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 tried to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web page to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different era.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Koreatown, design include an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects because it appears that virtually every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental industry.

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

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

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate how individuals 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 fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo design created for a Koreatown hair layout workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo which projected a sense of simplicity and class for their new hair salon. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious path of designing simply a stylized orchid but instead designed a business logo which suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is more often than not the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the attention on the perception that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

Logo design for a software designer the design attributes and also renowned Koreatown component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a connection in 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 located a couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the substance supporting a company logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods 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 business. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a place to market their used goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Koreatown logo design utilizing a graphic that garners the attention of vehicles and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Koreatown company logo style has actually an area incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo design wasn’t actually composed for an Koreatown area farm it was really designed for an investments broker, and this brand was one of multiple which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was to make a image that projects confidence, financial success, and affluence.

 Koreatown Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo design attribute for externally facing arrow and also the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design that they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the freedom to delve into any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without understanding where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the first try.

Logo developed for making use of an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is reminiscent of a popular Koreatown sporting activities team logo design.

I have designed quite a lot of restaurant 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 cool undertaking in which I worked directly with the proprietor to produce a logo design which worked very 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 illuminated sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
