POINTERS ON FINDING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design firm can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t feature real life samples odds are they won’t be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s goal is to reflect your unique vision for your company. If a designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

Ripon LOGO DESIGN​

For over two decades ImageCo has been helping businesses of all kinds establish memorable brand identities. We’ve undertaken branding work for builders, educational institutions, diamond miners, wedding singers, coffee shops, retailers, and just about every other kind of business concern you can imagine. What makes us different compared to our contemporaries is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every logo design project as if it will be employed as an electric sign. As a result of our sign first technique our brand identity designs can, and have been utilized in everything from fashion labels to electrical signs. Our sign first technique guarantees that our logo designs are just as reliable whether they are used in television commercials or website applications, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and remembered no matter of size or use.

American Made ★ Design

Something that seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you may have found online, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are enlisted to do, we perform in-house. Regardless of the type of design project we take on, business logo, website design, trade show banners, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will contract out our client’s projects to 3rd parties based outside the United States. When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the price of your project and imposes the conditions of how we do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Ripon organization realizes that they need a logo, but few new business owners entirely understand the key role their logo will make in their financial success, or why one business logo functions more effectively than another. A company logo has an instant and lasting influence on the success of a company, select the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Ripon companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require consideration, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable business logo will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any sort 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 product or organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of noting something so that it can be distinguished, its genesis comes from the mark branded onto livestock. Nowadays a brand indicates virtually anything with a motive, regardless of whether it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive sister, they are both from the same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest targeted at a specific audience, it’s goal is to create an image that the target market will likely connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and identity design. When a person states the names Ferrari or Mustang what we think of is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car with 4 wheels that can carry us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals purchase those brands. Brand image is why individuals get specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the origin of a lot of branding companies you’ll find that they are often rebranded marketing companies. When somebody states they are in advertising and marketing lots of people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a type of visual design that helps form the public image of a business, a product or a business. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and collateral material such as cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some identity designers also build web sites and software interfaces. The crucial role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of influencing actions, results and understandings.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Ripon coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were opening up in an old section of the community and wanted to cast a vintage vibe without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished each of the tasks by designing a business logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria made for Ripon clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that deals with the clinical assessment of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents very literally, but 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 enhancer to the brand that helps make it more appealing, more interest grabbing and even more memorable.

logo design with a leaping green frog designed for a household enjoyable center in Ripon.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also 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 surgeons, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better 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 utilized for promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Ripon 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the images they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes 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 lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something comparable 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Ripon logo but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Ripon logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I truly savor and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really 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 shape as a stroke in the character A but my customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his scorn for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral point of views on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their business logo comprehend how crucial a logo design is for their company so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of obstacles, but the most significant obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, design for Ripon publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, but it really is the most crucial part of a published book since it is often the primary thing a person sees in the book store. With respect to a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will likely ever have to spotlight 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 leaves plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems that in many cases 1 of the aspects individuals usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a winner.

 Ripon logo design used for marketing as well as a tag design for Vintage Situation features an antiquated font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for musical instruments, that appeared to be antique cases. For this business logo design I tried to come up with a logo that provided a fluid old style feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another point in time.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Ripon, style consist of an arc with lines converging with it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can be one of the most challenging logo jobs because it appears that almost every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a concept 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 particular design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a household not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities startled in height to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be far too 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 never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to summarize how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a Ripon hair design workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo which carried a feeling of calmness and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a concept that did not go the obvious direction of creating merely a stylized orchid but instead designed a logo design that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is usually the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian horse logo design created for a steed ranch that focuses on breeding Arabian program horses.

Logo style for a software application developer the layout attributes and also legendary Ripon 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). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a connection in between the software program and hardware.

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

Evolve logo design created for a Riponinterior developer, design attribute a series of red circles that intersect and also replace the letter O in the center of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Ripon business logo design featuring an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly knew the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a location to market their used items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Ripon logo design design using an illustration that seizes the interest of traffic and projects an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Ripon company logo design has an area incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo design wasn’t actually composed for an Ripon area farm it was really designed for a commodities broker, and this company was one of several which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to develop a brand mark that projected trust, effectiveness, and opulence.

 Ripon Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo style feature for externally facing arrowhead 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 they preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the flexibility to investigate any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Fortunately, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the very first shot.

Logo design developed for using an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font that is reminiscent of a famous Ripon sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted 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 bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked closely with the owner to develop a logo design that worked really 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 signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
