POINTERS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be judged from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not feature actual examples odds are they will never be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to echo your unique vision for your business. If a logo designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they will get paid.

Something which seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the design agencies that you probably have stumbled upon online, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are retained to do, we perform in-house. Regardless of the kind of design project we undertake, logo design, website, trade show display, or electrical sign, we do not, and never will job out our client’s projects to organizations located outside the US. When you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the cost of your design project and determines the conditions of how you and I do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Rancho Palos Verdes company realizes that they probably need a logo, yet few new business owners entirely grasp the pivotal role their company logo can make in their becoming successful, or why one logo design performs more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and lasting influence on the viability of a company, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Rancho Palos Verdes companies prosper, 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 logo designs do not require deliberation, they can be comprehended in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to posters a scalable logo will remain legible and equally emotive at every 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 personal, and they are suitable for the item or organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and the act of marking something to ensure that it can be distinguished, its origin comes from the mark burned onto livestock. These days a brand represents basically anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be profit 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 marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are both from the very same family, the distinction 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 directed at a target market, it’s objective is to create a mental image that the target market will identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and identity design. When somebody says the names Ferrari or Corvette what we think of 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 speed, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals purchase those brands. Brand image is why people acquire most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the origin of most branding companies you’ll discover that they are often re-branded advertising and marketing agencies. When somebody states they are in advertising and marketing the majority of people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. However when a person states “I am in branding”… it just seems much more impressive, probably it’s due to the fact that most individuals don’t recognize what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual components of a product or agency that influence perceptions. This largely includes the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the different colors used yet can additionally consist of audio, illumination, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, touched or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps shape the public image of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as pamphlets. Some identity designers also build sites as well as software interfaces. The crucial function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and a psychological tone with the goal of influencing actions, results as well as assumptions.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo style of a bike created for a Rancho Palos Verdes coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening up in an old part of town and wished to project a retro vibe without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I achieved each of the jobs by designing a custom logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria created for Rancho Palos Verdes medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which deals with the clinical examination of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Normally I attempt not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, but 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 enhancer to the brand that makes it more interesting, more interest grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members fun facility in Rancho Palos Verdes.

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 which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a couple of springs into the concept 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 logo 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 title itself to give the logo a more lively high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they used for marketing and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I did was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - created for Rancho Palos Verdes traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather convey emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they often tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 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 tried to do something similar to this logo design by making use of 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Rancho Palos Verdes logo but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Rancho Palos Verdes logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I truly savor and the Coastal Wireless project 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 letter A however the client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his scorn for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get objective opinions on the value of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they adored 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo design understand how important a logo design is for their business so they are much more vested in the result. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of hurdles, but the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task 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, layout for Rancho Palos Verdes publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, however it is the most vital part of a printed book given that it is in most cases the primary thing a person views in the book shop. Concerning a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely 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 gives plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems that in many occurrences one of the things individuals often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a sense of flight and it was certainly a victory.

 Rancho Palos Verdes logo design made use of for advertising and a label layout for Vintage Case features an old font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for musical instruments, that looked to be antique cases. For this logo concept I strove to come up with a logo that provided a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different point in time.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Rancho Palos Verdes, design include an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs 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. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless 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 industry.

I actually love doing dentistry business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design created for a household not-for-profit, the logo features 4 characters surprised in height to stand for a family unit 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 illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique 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 understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to summarize exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo style developed for a Rancho Palos Verdes hair design workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo that projected a spirit of contentment and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious course of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is usually the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the focus on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo design created for a steed ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software program programmer the layout functions and also iconic Rancho Palos Verdes component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk operations. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge 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 few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the owner of the company and in many cases the meaning supporting a company logo is equally as important as how it serves the business it stands for.

A Rancho Palos Verdes business logo layout including an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a location to market their pre-owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Rancho Palos Verdes logo design utilizing an image which garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Rancho Palos Verdes company logo design has actually an area integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo idea wasn’t really developed for an Rancho Palos Verdes area farm it was really devised for an investments broker, and this logo 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 projected confidence, financial success, and opulence.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design that they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the freedom to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this case, I nailed a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo made for the use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is similar to a renowned Rancho Palos Verdes sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed dozens of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the business owner to design a logo which worked really 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 above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
