STRATEGIES ON SELECTING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design company presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can’t refund the time you invest which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but in the end a design agency can only be evaluated from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain actual examples odds are they won’t be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

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

We’ve undertaken logo design work for ranchers, schools, heart surgeons, wedding singers, diners, retail stores, and virtually every other kind of business you can think of.

Our sign first approach guarantees that our logo designs are equally effective whether they are used in television commercials or web apps, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and remembered no matter of scale or purpose.

American Made ★ Design

The thing that seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the design companies that you might possibly have stumbled upon on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are brought on board to perform, we perform in-house. Irrespective of the type of design project we undertake, logo, web page, trade show booth, or retail sign, we do not, and never will farm-out our customer’s projects to organizations located outside the US. When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the cost of your project and imposes the conditions of how you and I conduct business.

ASPECTS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Ladera Ranch business realizes that they require a logo, but few start-ups thoroughly comprehend the essential role their logo will perform in their success, or the reason that one logo works far better than another. A logo has an instant and sustaining influence on the viability of a company, pick the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Ladera Ranch companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require contemplation, they can be comprehended in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to retail signs a scalable logo will be legible and just as emotive at virtually any dimension.
  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 personal, and they are suitable for the product or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the process of denoting something to make sure that it can be identified, its foundation originates from the brand burned onto livestock. These days a brand symbolizes virtually anything with an intention, regardless if it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the value of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s sexy cousin, they are all from the same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing 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 audience, it’s goal is to develop an image that the audience can relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When someone mentions the brand names Lamborghini or Mustang what we think about is their brand image, it’s an image 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 image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people buy those brands. Brand image is why people get most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the history of a lot of branding agencies you’ll discover that they are frequently rebranded advertising and marketing agencies. When someone claims they are in marketing lots of people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when somebody states “I’m in branding”… it simply seems more impressive, perhaps it’s due to the fact that most people don’t understand what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and kind of sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that defines the visual components of a product or business that influence understandings. This largely includes the name, the logo, the product packaging, the colors utilized however can also consist of sound, illumination, 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 designer that specializes in a type of visual design that helps form the public image of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as pamphlets. Some visual designers also develop web sites and also user interfaces. The crucial role of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the goal of affecting activities, outcomes and also understandings.

select logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Ladera Ranch coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were actually launching in an older section of the city and hoped to visualize an old-fashioned tone without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved the two jobs via creating a business logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also germs created for Ladera Ranch medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that works with the laboratory examination of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is really the sole instance I call to mind where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, however it does it in a way 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 enhancer to the name that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping eco-friendly frog developed for a family members fun facility in Ladera Ranch.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the concept 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 logo design 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 name itself to give the logo a more enthusiastic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for advertising and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created 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, as well as a tree - developed for Ladera Ranch travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather convey emotional experiences through the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories using 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 fullness which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo design by using 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  Ladera Ranch logo design but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Ladera Ranch logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

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

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get honest opinions on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo realize how vital a logo design is for their business so they are way more vested in the final result. Every logo job possesses it’s allotment of obstacles, however the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Ladera Ranch book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most vital part of a printed book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the book shop. Regarding a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will ever get to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women 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 design created for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with benches changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it seems like that in many instances 1 of the aspects folks often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a feeling of flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Ladera Ranch logo layout utilized for advertising and marketing and also a label style for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be older cases. For this custom logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that had a fluid old style feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a website to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another era.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Ladera Ranch, design include an arc with lines converging with it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it seems that almost every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo but 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 care profession.

I really love doing dentist logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that does not have a single 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 design over to the client the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a household not-for-profit, the logo features 4 characters startled in height 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 brand identity design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Most 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 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 downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to illustrate specifically how people should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a Ladera Ranch 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 business logo that related a sense of contentment and connection for their new hair salon. I created a concept which did not go the obvious route of making simply a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a business logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is more often than not the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the main focus on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

Arabian steed logo style produced for a steed cattle ranch that specializes in reproducing Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo style for a software program designer the style functions and also legendary Ladera Ranch element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and disk managing. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts 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 situated a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it represented something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the symbolism supporting a company logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

Develop logo layout created for a Ladera Ranchindoor developer, layout function a collection of red circles that converge and change the letter O in the center of the logo layout.

A Ladera Ranch business logo design featuring an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands 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 primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to sell their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Ladera Ranch logo design design utilizing an illustration that 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 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 relaxed habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this Ladera Ranch company logo design has actually a field incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo design wasn’t actually designed for an Ladera Ranch area farm it was in reality developed for a commodities broker, and this particular trademark was one of a handful of which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to design a graphic that projects assurance, success, and wealth.

 Ladera Ranch Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo layout attribute for outwardly facing arrowhead as well as the arrowheads imply that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

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

Logo design created for the use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is similar to a well-known Ladera Ranch sports team logo.

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 US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked closely with the owner to create a business logo that worked very 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 which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
