STRATEGIES ON IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design firm presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can’t reimburse the time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

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

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to reflect your unique vision for your organization. If a designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how soon they will get paid.

We have done branding work for builders, universities, diamond miners, party planners, coffee roasters, retail stores, and virtually every other kind of business concern you can think of. What makes ImageCo unique 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 used as an electric sign.

Our sign first technique guarantees that our logo designs are equally reliable whether they are used in television commercials or web apps, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and always remembered regardless of scale or purpose.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you probably have stumbled upon in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every project we are retained to perform, we perform in-house. Irrespective of the kind of project we undertake, logo, business website, trade show exhibit, or electric sign, we do not, and never will contract out our client’s projects to 3rd parties located outside the USA. When you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that marks up the cost of your project and determines the terms of how we conduct business.

ASPECTS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new San Gabriel business understands that they probably need a logo, yet few new business owners fully realize the essential role their company logo can perform in their success, or the reason that one business logo performs far better than another. A company logo has a critical and sustaining influence on the growth of a business, select the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help San Gabriel businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require deliberation, they can be comprehended in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to billboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel personal, and they are suitable for the product or organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of marking something so that it can be distinguished, its genesis comes from the brand branded onto livestock. Nowadays a brand signifies basically anything with an intention, regardless if it be profit or political parties, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the worth of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy cousin, they are both from the very 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 targeted at a specific audience, it’s objective is to produce a mental image that the target market will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person says 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 vehicle 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, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes people want those brands. Brand image is why individuals get specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the history of many branding firms you’ll find that they are frequently rebranded advertising and marketing companies. When somebody says they are in advertising many people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a type of visual design that helps shape the public image of a company, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, as well as collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some identity designers also design sites and also user interfaces. The necessary duty of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the objective of affecting actions, results and understandings.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a San Gabriel coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee shop were opening up in an old part of town and wanted to cast an old-fashioned tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs via designing a symbol design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs designed for San Gabriel medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the laboratory examination of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, but it does it in a fashion 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 enhancement to the name that helps make it more captivating, more attention grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members enjoyable facility in San Gabriel.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild 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 did was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - created for San Gabriel traveling 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 fairly niche field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead convey emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo design by employing 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  San Gabriel logo but also to illustrate the depth of her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 San Gabriel logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A however my client, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his scorn for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get neutral opinions on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they really 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their logo design recognize how essential a logo design is for their company so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s share of hurdles, but the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, style for San Gabriel book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most necessary part of a published book because it is usually the initial thing a person views in the book store. With respect to a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity they will likely ever have to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

This 3 color design is vivid, colorful and eye-catching and it gives plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it seems like that in many instances one of the aspects consumers often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a spirit of airline flight and it was certainly a victory.

 San Gabriel logo layout utilized for advertising and marketing and also a label design for Vintage Instance features an archaic typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be antique cases. For this brand design I strove to come up with a logo that had a fluid vintage feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different era.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in San Gabriel, layout include an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can be one of the most difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it seems that every single dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and subsequently 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 suggested in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the client the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a household not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities surprised in elevation to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to describe precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo style developed for a San Gabriel hair style workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo which projected an atmosphere of contentment and class for their new hair studio. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious route of creating simply a stylized orchid but rather crafted a company logo which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is generally the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the focus on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo layout created for an equine cattle ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian show steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo layout for a software program developer the style functions as well as famous San Gabriel aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

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

Evolve logo style created for a San Gabrielinterior developer, layout feature a series of red circles that converge as well as change the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

A San Gabriel business logo layout including an angler in the center of the name casting a fly towards the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to sell off their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their San Gabriel logo design with a graphic which captures the interest of traffic and projects an image that evokes the enthusiasm 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 graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this San Gabriel company logo style has actually an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem concept wasn’t actually produced for an San Gabriel regional farm it was actually created for an investments broker, and this business logo was one of several that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to develop a brand mark that projected self-confidence, success, and wealth.

 San Gabriel Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo design function for ostensibly dealing with arrow as well as the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they desired, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the freedom to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without understanding where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the first try.

Logo made for using an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script typeface that is evocative a well-known San Gabriel sporting activities group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have created 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 United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked closely with the business owner to design a business logo which 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 illuminated sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
