TIPS FOR SELECTING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design company presents a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can not refund the time you commit which is eminently more precious 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 design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not 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 business. If a logo designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they will get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Every new Santa Clarita organization knows they probably need a logo, yet few start ups entirely comprehend the pivotal role their logo design can play in their success, or why one logo functions more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and long term impact on the viability of a business, choose the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Santa Clarita businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need scrutiny, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to billboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that 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 right, and they are suitable for the product or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be lasting and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the act of denoting something to make sure that it can be distinguished, its genesis comes from the mark branded onto livestock. Today a brand represents virtually anything with an intention, whether it be earnings or politics, a brand is an inherent aspect of defining the value of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are both from the very same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition targeted at a specific audience, it’s goal is to produce a mental image that the audience will relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When someone mentions the names Ferrari or Mustang what we consider 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 deliver us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that is what makes people purchase those brands. Brand image is why people purchase specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you reflect on the beginning of many branding firms you’ll find that they are quite often re-branded marketing firms. When somebody claims they are in advertising lots of people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when someone claims “I’m in branding”… it simply sounds much more attractive, probably it’s because lots of people don’t recognize what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and maybe even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual elements of a product or business that affect perceptions. This mainly consists of the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the colors used however can likewise include audio, lighting, texture, signs, really 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 business, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral products such as cards, stationery, and also pamphlets. Some visual designers also build sites as well as software interfaces. The crucial duty of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the objective of affecting activities, results and assumptions.

select signs/logos

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were actually launching in an older section of the town and hoped to project a nostalgic atmosphere without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled the two tasks by developing a trademark concept 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 layout with a microscope slide as well as germs made for Santa Clarita clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which deals with the clinical evaluation of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Generally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents very 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 an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members enjoyable center in Santa Clarita.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, most likely 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 medical professionals, dental professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really resonate an atmosphere 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 provide the logo a more enthusiastic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Santa Clarita 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 pretty niche field of photography and I think it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead reveal emotional journeys by means of the photos they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes share entire stories using 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 resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something the same 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Santa Clarita logo design but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Santa Clarita logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A however my customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his hatred for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to share it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced point of views on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members 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 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 proceeded with the original concept.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo understand how important a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of difficulties, however the most significant obstacle is finding 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 client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Santa Clarita publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most essential part of a published book considering that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the book shop. With respect to a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity they will ever have to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

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

Air LA logo made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars customized to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems like that in many cases one of the traits individuals tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a feeling of air travel and it was undoubtedly a success.

 Santa Clarita logo design utilized for advertising and marketing as well as a label style for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be vintage 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 used for everything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different era.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Santa Clarita, design include an arc with lines converging through it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects considering that it appears that virtually every dental professional features 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 business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo 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 profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and inevitably 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 particular design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Most 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 overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to summarize how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a Santa Clarita hair style studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo that related a feeling of peace and connection for their new hair salon. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious direction of crafting simply a stylized orchid but instead crafted a business logo which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is more often than not the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the main focus on the perception that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

Arabian horse logo style developed for a steed cattle ranch that focuses on breeding Arabian show steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software designer the design features as well as famous Santa Clarita element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive management. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge in between the software 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 business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it meant something to the owner of the business and in many cases the significance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

A Santa Clarita business logo style including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not 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 interests, a location to market their used items to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Santa Clarita logo design using a graphic which grabs the interest of traffic and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Santa Clarita company logo layout has an area integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t actually created for an Santa Clarita area farm it was actually devised for an investments broker, and this logo design was one of multiple which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was to make a graphic that projects confidence, success, and prosperity.

 Santa Clarita Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo design function for outwardly encountering arrowhead and also the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design they preferred, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the opportunity to investigate any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this particular instance, I nailed a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo design made for making use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font style that is reminiscent of a famous Santa Clarita sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted 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 pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking in which I worked directly with the business owner to develop a logo which 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 neon sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
