STRATEGIES FOR IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design agency presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can’t reimburse the amount of time you commit which is eminently more valuable 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 portfolio does not feature real world examples chances are they will never be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be understood 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.

Something that truly sets ImageCo apart from other design firms that you might have come across in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are retained to do, we do ourselves.

QUALITIES OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Every new Temple City company understands that they require a logo, but few start-ups entirely realize the crucial role their organization’s logo will perform in their financial success, or the reason that one business logo performs more effectively than another. A logo has a critical and long term effect on the success of a company, select the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Temple City businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require contemplation, they can be grasped in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will stay legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any sort of 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 product or business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be lasting and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the process of marking something to ensure that it can be identified, its origin comes from the brand branded onto livestock. Nowadays a brand signifies virtually anything with a motive, regardless of whether it be earnings or politics, 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 sister, they are each from the very 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 directed at a target market, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the audience will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and identity design. When somebody says the names Lamborghini or Mustang what we consider 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 move us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals buy those brands. Brand image is why individuals buy most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Agencies – If you reflect on the history of a lot of branding agencies you’ll discover that they are quite often rebranded advertising and marketing firms. When someone says they are in advertising most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps form the public image of a business, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some identity designers also design web sites as well as user interfaces. The vital role of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and an emotional tone with the objective of influencing activities, outcomes and also perceptions.

select signs/logos

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Temple City coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening in an old section of the city and hoped to project a nostalgic feel without appearing as boring or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs via developing a logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also germs made for Temple City medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which studies the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which deals with the laboratory examination of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Generally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, however it does it in a fashion 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 enhancer to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more focus grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping eco-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable center in Temple City.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, probably 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 professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually 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 provide the logo a more lively high energy mood.

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

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - made for Temple City traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather reveal emotional experiences through the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently 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 lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo design 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Temple City logo design but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Temple City logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I seriously take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really 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 silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial point of views on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really loved the concept 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 went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo understand how important a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s portion of difficulties, but the largest 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 identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Temple City book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most vital part of a printed book since it is often the primary thing a person views in the book store. Concerning a publisher, it’s the opportunity that they will likely ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart however it looks like that in many cases one of the items people usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated 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 affording a feeling of airline flight and it was certainly a winner.

 Temple City logo layout utilized for advertising and a tag design for Vintage Instance includes an antiquated font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for musical instruments, that seemed to be vintage cases. For this custom logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that had a fluid old style feel to it and could be used for everything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another era.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Temple City, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects because it appears that every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a concept that doesn’t have a single 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 concept over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design 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 people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that explains itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a Temple City hair style workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo which conveyed a feeling of calmness and connection for their new hair studio. I created a concept which did not go the obvious course of crafting merely a stylized orchid but instead designed a company logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is in most cases the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the main focus on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

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

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Cafe logo layout a little restaurant, design consists of a changed script font style which hovers above a team of ornate lines and dots.

Logo layout for a software application developer the layout functions as well as legendary Temple City element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

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

Evolve logo layout created for a Temple Cityindoor developer, layout function a collection of red circles that converge as well as change the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Temple City business logo layout including an angler in the center of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly understood the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell off their used items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Temple City business logo design along with an illustration that pulls in the attention of traffic and sends an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Temple City company logo design has an area incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand idea wasn’t actually developed for an Temple City regional farm it was in reality created for a commodities broker, and this particular trademark was one of a handful of that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was actually to generate an identity that projects esteem, financial success, and wealth.

 Temple City Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo layout function for ostensibly dealing with arrowhead and also the arrowheads imply that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design that they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the flexibility to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this case, I nailed a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo design created for making use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font style that is reminiscent of a renowned Temple City sports group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed loads of restaurant logos and establishment 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 where I worked directly with the proprietor to create a logo design which worked extremely 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 neon sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
