TIPS ON CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be evaluated from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain real world examples chances are they will never be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s objective is to mirror your personal vision for your company. If a designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they can get paid.

QUALITIES OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Mission District entrepreneur realizes that they need a logo, however few start-ups entirely understand the key role their business logo will make in their becoming successful, or why one logo design performs better than another. A business logo has an instant and long term influence on the financial success of a business, go with the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Mission District businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t need deliberation, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable logo will remain legible and just as emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any type of 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 item or organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the act of denoting something to ensure that it can be recognized, its foundation comes from the brand burned onto animals. These days a brand signifies basically anything with a motive, regardless if it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the value of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are all from the same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition aimed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the target market will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone says the brand names Ferrari 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 an automobile with 4 wheels that can deliver 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 unique . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals purchase those products. Brand image is why individuals identify with specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the beginning of most branding firms you’ll find that they are often rebranded advertising and marketing companies. When a person says they are in advertising and marketing the majority of people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when somebody states “I am in branding”… it just sounds much more attractive, probably it’s since most individuals do not know what it means to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and maybe even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that explains the visual components of a product or business that influence view points. This mostly includes the name, the logo, the packaging, the different colors used but can likewise consist of sound, lights, texture, signage, just about anything that can be seen, felt or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– 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 create logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and also pamphlets. Some identity designers also build sites and also user interfaces. The vital function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the objective of affecting actions, outcomes as well as understandings.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Mission District coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and cafe were opening in an older section of town and wished to cast a vintage vibe without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled the two jobs by developing a logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also germs made for Mission District clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which deals with the laboratory examination of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the only instance I recall where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite 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 illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that helps make it more appealing, more interest grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a household fun center in Mission District.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the types of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually resonate 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better lively high energy feeling.

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

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Mission District traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather project emotional journeys through the images they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they oftentimes convey whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with just words. I tried to do something similar to this logo 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Mission District logo but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Mission District logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design jobs that I take on I really take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A but my customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial viewpoints on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they loved the design and were able to reason with 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo design understand how crucial a logo design is for their business so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo project has it’s share of hurdles, however the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, design for Mission District book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, yet it is the most necessary part of a printed book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person sees in the book shop. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever get to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems like that in many cases one of the aspects folks tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a spirit of flight and it was surely a victory.

 Mission District logo design made use of for marketing as well as a label style for Vintage Instance includes an archaic font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for music instruments, which looked to be vintage cases. For this custom logo design I sought to come up with a logo that had a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could be used for every thing from a website to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another point in time.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Mission District, style include an arc with lines converging with it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs due to the fact that it seems that virtually every dental professional involves 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 careers when it comes to small business branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s 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 care profession.

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

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

William McNally logo developed for a household not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities staggered in height to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found 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 hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to illustrate specifically how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo style created for a Mission District hair style studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo which related an atmosphere of serenity and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which did not go the obvious path of creating merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a company logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is more often than not the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the emphasis on the perception that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian horse logo style developed for a steed cattle ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo layout for a software application developer the layout features and famous Mission District aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive managing. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection between the software and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a company logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

A Mission District business logo style featuring 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 brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to market their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Mission District logo design design along with an image that garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Mission District company logo style has actually a field integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t really developed for an Mission District area farm it was really devised for a commodities broker, and this particular company logo was one of several that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to design a graphic that projects confidence, effectiveness, and affluence.

 Mission District Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo style attribute for outwardly encountering arrow as well as the arrowheads imply that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the liberty to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where the target is. Fortunately, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo developed for making use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font style that is reminiscent of a well-known Mission District sports group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created loads of restaurant custom logo designs and business 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 in which I worked directly with the owner to design a logo design 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 neon sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
