STRATEGIES FOR IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but ultimately a designer can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain actual examples chances are they won’t be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to mirror your personal vision for your company. If a logo designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

We’ve undertaken branding work for mechanics, educational institutions, heart surgeons, party planners, diners, retailers, and practically every other kind of business you can think of. What makes ImageCo different compared to our contemporaries is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we undertake every logo design project as though it will be utilized as an electrical sign. As a result of our sign first technique our designs can, and have been used in everything from fashion labels to neon signs. Our sign first technique insures that our logos are just as successful whether they are used in TV commercials or website apps, they are consistently recognizable, comprehended, and always remembered no matter of scale or function.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference that really sets ImageCo apart from many of the design agencies that you might have encountered online, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are enlisted to perform, we perform ourselves. No matter the type of project we accept, logo design, website, trade show banners, or electrical sign, we do not, and never will job-out our client’s work to agencies located outside the United States. 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 design project and dictates the conditions of how my customers and I do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Livermore business understands that they need a logo, yet few new business owners thoroughly understand the key role their logo can play in their financial success, or the reason that one logo design performs better than another. A business logo has an immediate and long term impact on the prosperity of a company, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Livermore businesses succeed, 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 logos do not need consideration, they can be comprehended in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to billboards a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate on any 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 product or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the process of marking something to ensure that it could be recognized, its origin originates from the brand branded onto animals. These days a brand represents virtually anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be earnings or political parties, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are each from the very same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition targeted at a target audience, it’s objective is to produce an image that the target market can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone states the brand names Porsche or Corvette what we consider 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 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 individuals buy those products. Brand image is why individuals acquire most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the origin of a lot of branding firms you’ll discover that they are often re-branded marketing and advertising companies. When a person states they are in marketing most people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps shape the image of a business, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, packaging, as well as collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some visual designers also develop websites and also user interfaces. The crucial function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of influencing actions, end results as well as perceptions.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Livermore coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening up in an old part of town and really wanted to visualize a vintage vibe without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks by means of developing a business logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and also bacteria developed for Livermore clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which works with the laboratory assessment of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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 integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents very literally, but it does it in a fashion 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 brand that makes it more captivating, more attention grabbing and more memorable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Livermore.

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 produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dentists, 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 full name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better lively high energy feeling.

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

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Livermore travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather reveal emotional journeys through the photos they record. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories using 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 often have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Livermore logo but also to show the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Livermore logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however my client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members did not share his aversion for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with 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 design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they really liked 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo comprehend how essential a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of hurdles, however the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, design for Livermore publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, however it really is the most vital part of a published book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person sees in the book shop. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever have 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 vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo design created for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars modified to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart nevertheless it seems that in many occurrences 1 of the things consumers usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a good sense of air travel and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 Livermore logo design utilized for advertising and a label design for Vintage Case features an old font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, that looked to be antique cases. For this business logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that had a fluid retro feel to it and could easily be used 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 created for an orthodontist in Livermore, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo jobs considering that it seems that each and every dental professional features 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 advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design 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 industry.

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

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

William McNally logo design designed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his community. Many 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 very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to summarize precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo design 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 chance to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a Livermore hair layout workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo which communicated an atmosphere of ease and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious path of crafting just a stylized orchid but instead designed a logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is frequently the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the attention on the emotion that they wanted to project to their clients.

Logo layout for a software application programmer the style features and also famous Livermore 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). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and drive managing. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge in between the software program and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it represented something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the substance behind a logo is equally as important as how it brands the business it stands for.

Advance logo layout created for a Livermoreinterior designer, style feature a collection of red circles that converge and change the letter O in the center of the logo layout.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to sell off their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Livermore logo design design along with an image that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

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

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo design wasn’t actually designed for an Livermore regional farm it was really devised for a commodities broker, and this particular business logo was one of a handful of which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was actually to produce a brand mark that projects self-assurance, financial success, and wealth.

 Livermore Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo design attribute for externally dealing with arrow and also the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the freedom to investigate any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without recognizing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo developed for making use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is evocative a well-known Livermore sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked directly with the business owner to develop a logo which worked extremely 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 neon sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
