TIPS ON PICKING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design firm offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can’t refund the time you commit which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature real life samples odds are they will not be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be understood and remembered, and it’s objective is to echo your personal vision for your company. If a designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they can get paid.

ASPECTS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new San Pedro business realizes that they require a logo, yet few start-ups thoroughly comprehend the crucial role their logo design can play in their success, or precisely why one business logo functions more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and sustaining effect on the success of a company, select the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help San Pedro companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require deliberation, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to store signs a scalable business logo will remain legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel right, and they are suitable for the item or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb and also a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the act of denoting something so that it could be distinguished, its genesis comes from the mark burned onto livestock.

Branding is also a strategic popularity contest directed at a target audience, it’s objective is to produce a mental image that the target market will likely identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody says the names Lamborghini or Corvette 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 image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people buy those brands. Brand image is why individuals acquire specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you reflect on the history of many branding firms you’ll discover that they are quite often re-branded marketing companies. When somebody claims they are in advertising most people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard are part of a brand identity.

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

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a San Pedro coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were opening in an old part of the town and hoped to project a vintage atmosphere without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I achieved both of these tasks by creating a sign design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscope slide and germs made for San Pedro clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that deals with the laboratory evaluation of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Usually I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents fairly 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 illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping green frog created for a household enjoyable center in San Pedro.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental offices, and lawyers 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 name of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a some springs into the design 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 name itself to give the logo a more lively high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for marketing. I also think 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 including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - developed for San Pedro traveling digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather niche field of photography and I think it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather reveal emotional experiences through the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo by utilizing 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  San Pedro logo but also to show the depth of her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 San Pedro logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless design 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 idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A but my client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family didn’t share his hatred for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced point of views on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo understand how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo design job possesses it’s portion of challenges, however the largest 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 giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for San Pedro publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, however it is the most necessary part of a printed book since it is ordinarily the first thing a person views in the book shop. Regarding a publisher, it’s the opportunity they will ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

Air LA logo created for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars changed to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it seems that in many cases one of the items individuals often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a success.

 San Pedro logo style used for advertising and marketing and a tag design for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for music instruments, which seemed to be vintage cases. For this brand design I sought to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid old style feel to it and could easily be used for anything from a website to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different point in time.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in San Pedro, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs because it appears that every single dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless 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 industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a design that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent 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 brand identity design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images 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 concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to summarize precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that explains itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo design created for a San Pedro hair layout studio including a script font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo that conveyed a feeling of serenity and connection for their new hair studio. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious course of creating just a stylized orchid but instead delivered a logo that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is more often than not the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the focus on the perception that they wanted to project to their customers.

Logo layout for a software developer the layout features and also iconic San Pedro aspect 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 management, and hard drive managing. The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge 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 situated a couple of 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 represented something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance behind a company logo is just as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

A San Pedro business logo layout including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly recognized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell off their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their San Pedro logo design along with an illustration which garners the attention of vehicles and sends an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph 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 design MQ farms, this San Pedro company logo design has actually an area incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo concept wasn’t really produced for an San Pedro regional farm it was actually developed for an investments broker, and this logo was one of a handful of that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to design a brand mark that projects trust, success, and prosperity.

 San Pedro Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo style feature for externally facing arrowhead and the arrowheads indicate 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 preferred, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the liberty to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo designed for using an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font style that is evocative a renowned San Pedro sporting activities group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted loads of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked closely with the business owner to create a logo that worked very well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
