POINTERS FOR SELECTING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design company presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can not reimburse the amount of time you invest which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be evaluated from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain real world examples odds are they will never be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to reflect your personal 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 will get paid.

Mead Valley LOGO DESIGN​

We’ve undertaken branding work for ranchers, schools, heart surgeons, party planners, cafes, retailers, and virtually every other kind of business you can think of. What makes ImageCo unique compared to traditional designers is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we undertake every brand identity project as if it will be utilized as an electric sign. As a result of our sign first approach our designs can, and have been used in everything from garment labels to billboards. Our sign first method ensures that our logos are equally successful whether they are used in TV commercials or website apps, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and always remembered regardless of scale or function.

American Made ★ Design

Something that seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the design companies that you might have stumbled upon on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are contracted to do, we perform ourselves. No matter the type of design project we undertake, logo design, website, trade show booth, or retail sign, we do not, and never will farm-out our client’s work to 3rd parties based outside the USA. Whenever you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that marks up the cost of your project and imposes the conditions of how we do business.

ASPECTS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Every new Mead Valley organization realizes that they need a logo, but few start-ups thoroughly realize the pivotal role their business logo will perform in their success, or the reason that one logo functions better than another. A business logo has an immediate and long term impact on the success of a company, pick the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Mead Valley companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t need consideration, they can be understood in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo will stay legible and just as emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which 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 item or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark as well as the process of denoting something to ensure that it can be recognized, its origin comes from the brand branded onto livestock. These days a brand signifies practically anything with a motive, regardless of whether it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the value of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are both from the same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition directed at a target market, it’s goal is to develop a mental image that the target market will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person mentions the 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 transport us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people want those brands. Brand image is why people identify with specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the beginning of most branding agencies you’ll discover that they are quite often rebranded marketing agencies. When a person says they are in marketing most people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when a person says “I’m in branding”… it just sounds more attractive, possibly it’s due to the fact that the majority of people do not recognize what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and maybe even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual aspects of a product or company that influence perceptions. This mostly consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors used but can likewise consist of sound, lights, texture, signs, just about anything that can be seen, felt or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a kind of visual design which helps form the perception of a company, a product or a business. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and collateral material such as cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some visual designers also build web sites and user interfaces. The essential role of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of influencing actions, outcomes and understandings.

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Mead Valley coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually launching in an older section of the area and really wanted to cast a nostalgic feel without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs by designing a trademark design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide as well as germs designed for Mead Valley medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that deals with the laboratory assessment of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the sole instance I recollect in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Normally I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents very literally, yet it does it in a fashion 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 brand that helps make it more interesting, more interest grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo style with a jumping environment-friendly frog made for a family members fun center in Mead Valley.

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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, 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 company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really resonate an environment 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better lively high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for advertising and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I came up with was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Mead Valley 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 niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead convey emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes tell 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 often have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo by making use of 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Mead Valley logo but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Mead Valley logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I truly savor and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his hatred for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge 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 unprejudiced assessments on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole 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 include 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 concept.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their logo design realize how essential a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo design job has it’s portion of difficulties, however the biggest challenge 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 giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for Mead Valley book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, but it is the most important part of a printed book considering that it is in most cases the first thing a person views in the book shop. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it looks like that in many occurrences one of the aspects people usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a good sense of airline flight and it was certainly a success.

 Mead Valley logo layout used for advertising and marketing as well as a label layout for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for music instruments, which looked to be antique cases. For this brand design I strove to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be utilized for everything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another era.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Mead Valley, design include an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs because it seems that virtually every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but 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 care profession.

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

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

William McNally logo design designed for a household not-for-profit, the logo features 4 characters staggered in elevation to represent a family with in the design.

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 representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Many 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 about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to explain exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout created for a Mead Valley hair layout studio including a script font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design which carried a sense of peace and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious path of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a business logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is in most cases the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the main focus on the emotion that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian horse logo design produced for an equine cattle ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian program equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software application designer the style functions and also iconic Mead Valley aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, 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 behaves as a connection 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 situated a couple of 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. However it meant something to the owner of the company and in many cases the significance behind a company logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

Develop logo style created for a Mead Valleyinterior developer, layout feature a collection of red circles that converge as well as replace the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Mead Valley business logo layout including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly realized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a location to sell their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Mead Valley logo design along with an illustration that captures the interest of vehicles and projects an image that invokes 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 image of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Mead Valley company logo design has a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo concept wasn’t really developed for an Mead Valley regional farm it was really designed for an investments broker, and this particular company logo was one of multiple that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was really to make a brand mark that projects self-confidence, financial success, and wealth.

 Mead Valley Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo style feature for outwardly encountering arrow and also the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the opportunity to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where the target is. Fortunately, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo design developed for making use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is evocative a popular Mead Valley sporting activities team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have created dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked closely with the owner to develop a logo which worked extremely well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
