POINTERS ON CHOOSING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design agency presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can not refund the amount of time you invest which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be judged from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not feature actual samples chances are they will never be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to reflect your unique vision for your business. If a designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they will get paid.

We’ve undertaken branding work for builders, educational institutions, diamond miners, wedding singers, diners, retail stores, and practically every other kind of business concern you can envision. What makes ImageCo unique compared to our competitors is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every logo design project as though it will be used as an electric sign.

Our sign first technique insures that our logo designs are just as reliable whether they are used in TV commercials or web applications, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and always remembered irrespective of scale or purpose.

American Made ★ Design

The thing which seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design firms that you probably have come across on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are retained to do, we perform ourselves.

When you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a broker that marks up the cost of your design project and dictates the terms of how you and I do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Sherman Oaks entrepreneur understands that they probably need a logo, however few start ups fully recognize the essential role their company logo can perform in their becoming successful, or the reason that one business logo works better than another. A business logo has a critical and lasting effect on the prosperity of a company, go with 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 a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Sherman Oaks businesses succeed, 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 do not require scrutiny, they can be comprehended in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to store signs a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that work 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 business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is both a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the act of marking something to make sure that it can be distinguished, its foundation originates from the mark burned onto livestock. These days a brand signifies pretty much anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be profit or political parties, a brand is an inherent aspect of defining the value of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are each from the exact same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest directed at a target audience, it’s goal is to produce an image that the audience will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and identity design. When somebody says the names Porsche or Mustang what we think about 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 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 unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals want those brands. Brand image is why individuals get most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you reflect on the beginning of a lot of branding firms you’ll discover that they are frequently rebranded advertising and marketing firms. When a person says they are in advertising the majority of people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps form the public image of a business, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, and also sales brochures. Some visual designers also develop websites and software interfaces. The essential duty of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the goal of influencing activities, outcomes as well as assumptions.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Sherman Oaks coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening up in an older part of the city and really wanted to cast a nostalgic vibe without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks via designing a custom logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and also germs developed for Sherman Oaks clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which works with the clinical examination of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recall where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Usually I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents quite literally, however it does it in a way 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 name that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping green frog developed for a household enjoyable facility in Sherman Oaks.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool 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 usual of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dentists, 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 features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually 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 title itself to provide the logo a much more lively high energy feeling.

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

photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Sherman Oaks traveling 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 due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead convey emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they often 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 resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something similar to this logo by making use of 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  Sherman Oaks logo design but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Sherman Oaks logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design projects that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really 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 silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however my customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his hatred for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get objective point of views on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they loved the concept 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 alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo understand how important a logo design is for their business so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of difficulties, but the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Sherman Oaks book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, however it is the most crucial part of a published book since it is usually the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publishing company, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will likely ever have to spotlight their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

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

Air LA logo made 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 nevertheless it seems like that in many instances 1 of the things people usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young new venture commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a sense of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 Sherman Oaks logo design utilized for marketing and also a tag layout for Vintage Situation features an archaic font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for musical instruments, which looked to be antique cases. For this brand concept I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid retro feel to it and could easily be utilized for everything from a website to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Sherman Oaks, style consist of an arc with lines converging via it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects considering that it seems that each and every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout 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 design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a family nonprofit, the logo includes 4 characters startled in elevation to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing 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 pertaining 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 hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a Sherman Oaks hair design studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a company logo that projected a spirit of serenity and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept that did not go the obvious course of creating just a stylized orchid but instead created a business logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo 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 orchid but alternately placed the importance on the perception that they wanted to project to their clients.

Arabian equine logo design produced for a horse ranch that specializes in reproducing Arabian program horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software application developer the layout features as well as iconic Sherman Oaks component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive operations. The kernel connects the system 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 computer hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a few miles from the 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. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism behind a company logo is just as important as how it serves the company it represents.

Advance logo layout produced for a Sherman Oaksinterior designer, layout attribute a series of red circles that converge and also replace the letter O in the center of the logo style.

A Sherman Oaks business logo style including an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly realized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to market their used items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Sherman Oaks logo design with an image which garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I knew 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 calm habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Sherman Oaks company logo style has a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo design wasn’t actually designed for an Sherman Oaks regional farm it was really developed for an investments broker, and this logo was one of several that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was actually to develop an identity that projects self-assurance, financial success, and opulence.

 Sherman Oaks Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo layout function for ostensibly facing arrowhead and the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the liberty to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where the target is. Fortunately, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the first try.

Logo design developed for using an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font style that is similar to a renowned Sherman Oaks sports team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant logos and business 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 favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked directly with the proprietor to develop 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 above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
