POINTERS ON FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design agency presents a money back guarantee try to remember that they can’t refund the amount of time you invest which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be determined from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not contain actual samples odds are they will not be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

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

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new San Clemente entrepreneur realizes that they require a logo, but few start-ups thoroughly comprehend the vital role their organization’s logo can play in their becoming successful, or why one logo design works more effectively than another. A logo design has a critical and long-term influence on the growth of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help San Clemente companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not need contemplation, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and equally emotive at any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any 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 business logo needs to be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the process of noting something to ensure that it could be distinguished, its origin originates from the brand burned onto animals. Today a brand signifies pretty much anything with an objective, regardless of whether it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are all from the same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising are about 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 develop a mental image that the audience can relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody states 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 a car with 4 wheels that can move 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 exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes people purchase those brands. Brand image is why people buy specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the history of many branding firms you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded advertising and marketing agencies. When someone says they are in advertising many people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when a person claims “I am in branding”… it just sounds more impressive, possibly it’s due to the fact that many people do not recognize what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that explains the visual aspects of a product or business that affect view points. This primarily includes the name, the logo, the packaging, the different colors utilized but can additionally consist of audio, illumination, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, felt or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a designer that concentrates on a kind of visual design that helps form the perception of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some identity designers also build websites and user interfaces. The necessary role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and a psychological tone with the goal of influencing activities, results and also perceptions.

select signs/logos

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a San Clemente coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening up in an older section of the community and really wanted to cast a vintage feel without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished each of the tasks by means of developing a custom logo design that features 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 design with a microscope slide as well as bacteria created for San Clemente clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which deals with the laboratory examination of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the sole instance I call to mind in which I was in a position to integrate 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 specific design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, but it does it in a way that integrates 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 attention grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping eco-friendly frog developed for a family members enjoyable center in San Clemente.

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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental experts, 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 place 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy atmosphere.

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

digital photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and also a tree - created for San Clemente travel digital 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather reveal emotional experiences by means of the photos 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 the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo design by using the positive space in the design to say one thing and then at the same time using the negative space to expand upon what was communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  San Clemente logo design but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 San Clemente logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely savor and the Coastal Wireless design 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 the client, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his contempt for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced viewpoints on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really loved the concept and were able to reason with 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo design understand how important 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 hurdles, however the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, design for San Clemente publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped parcel of real estate to work with, however it is the most important part of a published book due to the fact that it is often the first thing a person sees in the book shop. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will ever get to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

This 3 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 developed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches modified to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it seems that in many instances one of the items individuals often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although 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 spirit of air travel and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 San Clemente logo design used for advertising and a label layout for Vintage Situation includes an old-fashioned typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be vintage cases. For this custom logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that offered a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could be used for every thing from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different era.

Logo created for an orthodontist in San Clemente, design include an arc with lines converging via it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo design jobs because it seems that virtually every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s 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 dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately I created a concept that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities surprised in height to stand for a family unit with in the style.

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 devotion that William McNally had for the people in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique 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 concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate exactly how people 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 been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo style created for a San Clemente hair design studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design that communicated a feeling of contentment and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious course of creating simply a stylized orchid but instead delivered a business logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is generally the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the emphasis on the perception that they wanted to project to their patrons.

Arabian equine logo style created for an equine ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian show steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software designer the layout features as well as iconic San Clemente element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a connection 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 few 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 company and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo is equally as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

A San Clemente business logo style including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly knew the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a place to market their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their San Clemente logo design with an image that garners the interest of vehicles and sends an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this San Clemente company logo layout has actually a field incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo idea wasn’t really developed for an San Clemente area farm it was in reality designed for an investments broker, and this particular trademark was one of multiple that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was to design an identity that projects self-assurance, financial success, and affluence.

 San Clemente Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo layout function for ostensibly encountering arrow and the arrowheads imply that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the flexibility to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without knowing where the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I nailed a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo created for the use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is reminiscent of a famous San Clemente sporting activities team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed quite a lot of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment 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 think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to produce a logo that worked really 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.
