STRATEGIES ON DETERMINING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo 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 can not refund the amount of time you commit which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be evaluated by the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t contain actual examples odds are they will not be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s purpose is to echo your personal vision for your organization. If a designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they will get paid.

We have performed brand design work for builders, colleges, heart surgeons, party planners, coffee shops, retailers, and practically every other kind of business concern you can imagine.

Regardless of the kind of project we accept, business logo, website, trade show banners, or retail sign, we do not, and never will farm out our client’s projects to contractors located outside the USA. Whenever you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a broker that marks up the price of your design project and determines the conditions of how you and I conduct business.

ASPECTS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Modesto company realizes that they require a logo, yet few new business owners thoroughly realize the crucial role their company logo will perform in their financial success, or exactly why one logo design functions better than another. A business logo has a critical and long-term effect on the growth of a business, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Modesto businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require contemplation, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to store signs a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the item or business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and the process of noting something so that it could be identified, its foundation originates from the brand branded onto livestock. These days a brand symbolizes pretty much anything with a motive, whether it be profit or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the value of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are both from the exact 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 strategic popularity contest aimed at a target market, it’s objective is to produce a mental image that the audience will likely identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person mentions the brand names Ferrari or Mustang what we consider is their brand image, it’s an image 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 freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals buy those brands. Brand image is why individuals identify with specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you reflect on the beginning of a lot of branding agencies you’ll find that they are frequently rebranded advertising and marketing firms. When someone claims they are in advertising most people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. But when somebody states “I am in branding”… it just sounds more attractive, probably it’s due to the fact that most individuals don’t fully understand what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and maybe even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that defines the visual aspects of a product or company that influence view points. This mostly includes the name, the logo, the packaging, the colors utilized however can additionally include sound, lights, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, felt or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers

Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, packaging, as well as collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and brochures.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Modesto coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening up in an old section of the area and wished to cast an old-fashioned feel without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both of these jobs via developing a company logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria designed for Modesto clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that analyzes the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of healthcare which deals with the clinical assessment of samplings of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Usually I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, yet it does it in a way that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that makes it more appealing, more focus grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a household enjoyable facility in Modesto.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

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

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really reflect an atmosphere 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better dynamic 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 used for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - made for Modesto traveling professional 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather reveal emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with mere words. I tried to do something comparable to this logo by using the positive space in the design to suggest 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  Modesto logo design but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Modesto logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A but my customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to share it with friends and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial assessments on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they adored 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their business logo understand how crucial a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of difficulties, however the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Modesto book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most vital part of a printed book considering that it is usually the first thing a person views in the book shop. Concerning a publisher, it’s the best opportunity they will ever get to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it seems that in many instances 1 of the traits people often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a feeling of air travel and it was definitely a winner.

 Modesto logo style made use of for marketing as well as a label layout for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for music instruments, which seemed to be vintage cases. For this logo concept I strove to come up with a logo that had a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could easily be used for every thing from a web page to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Modesto, layout include an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs considering that it appears that each and every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

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

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design that does not 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 design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family members nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters surprised in height to represent a family 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 depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents 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 discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to summarize how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that explains itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a Modesto hair style workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design that projected a feeling of simplicity and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious direction of making merely a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is oftentimes the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the importance on the perception that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

Arabian equine logo style created for a horse cattle ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian show steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo developed a distinct company logo design fashioned to illustrate the unique physical traits of the Arabian pedigree of horses. By having an identifiable head form and very high tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the most immediately identifiable equine breeds in the whole world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Coffee shop logo design a little dining establishment, design includes a customized manuscript font style which hovers above a group of elaborate lines and dots.

Logo design for a software application programmer the layout features as well as iconic Modesto aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk management. The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection in between the software and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding 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 symbolism supporting a logo design is just as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

Develop logo layout created for a Modestoindoor developer, design feature a collection of red circles that converge and change the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Modesto business logo design including an angler in the center of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly knew the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to sell off their previously owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Modesto business logo design with a graphic that garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Modesto company logo layout has actually an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo idea wasn’t actually composed for an Modesto regional farm it was really designed for a products broker, and this company was one of several that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to develop a graphic that projected self-confidence, financial success, and affluence.

 Modesto Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo layout feature for outwardly encountering arrow and also the arrowheads suggest 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 desired, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers 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 recognizing where the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the first go.

Logo made for using an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font style that is similar to a well-known Modesto sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve crafted loads of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking in which I worked directly with the proprietor to produce 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 lighted sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
