TIPS ON SELECTING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to remember that they can not refund the time you invest which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be evaluated from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain real life examples odds are they will not be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to reflect your unique vision for your organization. If a designer isn’t focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

South Whittier LOGO DESIGN​

For over 2 decades ImageCo has been helping businesses of all kinds cultivate memorable brands. We’ve undertaken logo design work for mechanics, schools, heart surgeons, wedding singers, cafes, retailers, and virtually every other kind of business concern you can think of. What makes us different compared to our contemporaries is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every brand identity project as if it will be utilized as an electric sign. Because of our sign first technique our identity designs can, and have been used in everything from garment labels to billboards. Our sign first technique guarantees that our logo designs are equally successful whether they are used in TV commercials or website headers, they are consistently recognizable, understood, and remembered no matter of scale or use.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which really sets ImageCo apart from other design agencies that you probably have stumbled upon online, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are hired to do, we do ourselves. No matter the type of design project we undertake, logo design, website, trade show banners, or electrical sign, we do not, and never will contract out our client’s projects to contractors located outside the USA. When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a go-between that increases the cost of your project and imposes the terms of how we conduct business.

ASPECTS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new South Whittier organization knows they need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the crucial role their organization’s logo can play in their financial success, or precisely why one logo functions far better than another. A logo design has an immediate and sustaining impact on the financial success of a business, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help South Whittier companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable business logo will remain legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any type of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel personal, and they are suitable for the item or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the act of denoting something to make sure that it could be recognized, its foundation originates from the brand branded onto animals. These days a brand signifies pretty much anything with an intention, whether it be profit or politics, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the value of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive sister, they are each from the same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition targeted at a target market, it’s objective is to create a mental image that the audience will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and identity design. When a person states the brand names Lamborghini 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 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 sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people want those brands. Brand image is why people identify with specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the history of many branding companies you’ll find that they are often rebranded marketing and advertising companies. When a person states they are in marketing most individuals will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a type of visual design which helps shape the perception of a company, a product or a company. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some visual designers also develop sites as well as software interfaces. The crucial role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the objective of affecting actions, results as well as assumptions.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a South Whittier coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were launching in an older part of the city and wanted to project a retro feel without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I achieved the two jobs by means of creating a business logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for South Whittier medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the root causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that works with the laboratory evaluation of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the only instance I call to mind in which I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite 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 enhancement to the name that makes it more interesting, more interest grabbing and even more memorable.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a family enjoyable center in South Whittier.

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 norm of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design 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 feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for advertising and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - made for South Whittier travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they frequently convey entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo by utilizing 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  South Whittier logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 South Whittier logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless design 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 but the customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members did not share his scorn for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced assessments on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they really liked the design and were able to persuade 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 concept.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo realize how essential a logo is for their organization so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo design project has it’s share of challenges, but the largest challenge 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 providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for South Whittier publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped parcel of real estate to work with, yet it is the most vital part of a printed book given that it is usually the primary thing a person views in the book shop. Regarding a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will likely ever have to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

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

Air LA logo design developed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with benches modified to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart but it seems that in many cases 1 of the aspects consumers tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a sense of airline flight and it was certainly a winner.

 South Whittier logo layout made use of for advertising and marketing and also a label style for Vintage Case features an archaic font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be much older cases. For this logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that had a fluid retro feel to it and could be used for anything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another point in time.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in South Whittier, design include an arc with lines intersecting with it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo design jobs considering that it appears that virtually every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness 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 care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a concept that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this particular design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a family members nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his city. Many 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 found 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 communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to summarize specifically how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a South Whittier hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a business logo that related a sense of ease and connection for their new hair salon. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious route of designing simply a stylized orchid but instead designed a business logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is in most cases the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

Arabian horse logo style produced for a steed cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo developed a distinct custom logo concept tailored to embody the unique physical traits of the Arabian breed of horses. With a different head shape and high tail posture, the Arabian is one of the most quite easily recognizable horse breeds in the entire world.

Logo layout for a software developer the design attributes and famous South Whittier 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). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, 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 serves as a connection between the software and computer hardware.

The 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 identify anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the meaning behind a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

Advance logo layout created for a South Whittierinterior designer, design attribute a series of red circles that converge and replace the letter O in the center of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A South Whittier business logo design including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the viewer.

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 owners of On the Fly realized the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a location to sell off their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their South Whittier logo design along with an illustration which garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this South Whittier company logo layout has actually an area integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand idea wasn’t actually developed for an South Whittier regional farm it was actually developed for a products broker, and this particular brand was one of several that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was actually to develop a brand mark that projected trust, effectiveness, and affluence.

 South Whittier Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo style attribute for ostensibly facing arrow as well as the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design that they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the flexibility to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo design created for making use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is evocative a well-known South Whittier sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted dozens of restaurant logos and business 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 absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked closely with the owner to design a logo design that worked very 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 neon signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
