POINTERS FOR IDENTIFYING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be determined from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature real world examples chances are they will not be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s purpose is to reflect 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 soon they will get paid.

American Made ★ Design

The thing which seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you may have come across in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every project we are retained to do, we do ourselves. No matter the kind of project we undertake, logo, website, trade show display, or retail sign, we do not, and never will job out our customer’s projects to 3rd parties located outside the US. Whenever you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the price of your design project and determines the terms of how we do business.

QUALITIES OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Turlock company realizes that they need a logo, but few new business owners thoroughly grasp the essential role their logo design can play in their financial success, or the reason that one logo design performs far better than another. A business logo has a critical and long term effect on the growth of a company, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Turlock companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require deliberation, they can be comprehended in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo will be legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate on any device, in print, on 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 design must be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the act of noting something so that it could be identified, its genesis comes from the mark burned onto animals. Today a brand indicates practically anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be profit or political parties, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the value of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are each from the same family, the distinction 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 competition aimed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to develop an image that the audience can connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone mentions the brand names Lamborghini or Mustang what we think of is their brand image, it’s an image that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a vehicle 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 unique . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals purchase those products. Brand image is why individuals identify with most things, from Nike to Adidas 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 the majority of branding agencies you’ll discover that they are quite often re-branded advertising and marketing firms. When someone states they are in marketing many people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. However when somebody states “I’m in branding”… it simply seems much more attractive, possibly it’s because most individuals don’t know what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that defines the visual components of a product or agency that affect view points. This primarily includes the name, the logo, the product packaging, the colors utilized but can likewise consist of audio, lighting, texture, signage, just about anything that can be seen, felt or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that focuses on a kind of visual design that helps shape the perception of a firm, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral products such as business cards, stationery, as well as pamphlets. Some identity designers also build web sites and also software interfaces. The necessary role of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the goal of influencing activities, end results and also assumptions.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Turlock coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were opening up in an old part of the city and hoped to project a nostalgic tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks by means of creating a custom logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and germs designed for Turlock medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of medicine that works with the laboratory examination of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather 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 an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that helps make it more captivating, more attention grabbing and more meaningful.

logo design with a leaping green frog developed for a family fun facility in Turlock.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the usual of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity 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 some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually resonate an atmosphere 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better enthusiastic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept 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 designed was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - created for Turlock traveling professional 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 specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead reveal emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of most good 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 considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with mere words. I tried to do something the same 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Turlock logo but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Turlock logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I truly enjoy 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 concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A but the customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to discuss it with colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced viewpoints on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they loved 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 … eventually 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 weird creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo comprehend how essential a logo is for their business so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo job possesses it’s portion of hurdles, however the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, design for Turlock book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, but it is the most important part of a published book because it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the book shop. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will likely ever have to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, 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 has 2 letter A's with benches changed to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go nevertheless it looks like that in many cases 1 of the aspects consumers usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a feeling of airline flight and it was certainly a winner.

 Turlock logo style utilized for advertising and marketing as well as a tag layout for Vintage Situation includes an antiquated font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be much older cases. For this business logo design I tried to come up with a logo that offered a fluid old style feel to it and could be used for everything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from another generation.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Turlock, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it seems that virtually every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding 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 profession.

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 the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo features 4 characters startled in height to stand for a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy method 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 downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to illustrate precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a Turlock hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design that projected a sense of contentment and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious path of making just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is oftentimes the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

Arabian steed logo design produced for an equine ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian show equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Coffee shop logo style a small restaurant, style includes a customized manuscript typeface which floats above a team of elaborate lines and dots.

Logo style for a software application designer the layout functions and also renowned Turlock element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a connection in between the software and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

Advance logo design produced for a Turlockinterior designer, layout function a series of red circles that converge and replace the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

A Turlock business logo style featuring an angler in the center of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a location to sell their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Turlock logo design design utilizing an illustration which garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized 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 peaceful habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this Turlock company logo layout has a field incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo concept wasn’t really designed for an Turlock area farm it was in reality created for a products broker, and this particular business logo was one of many that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to create a brand mark that projects self-assurance, success, and prosperity.

 Turlock Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo design feature for ostensibly encountering arrow and also the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design that they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the freedom to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the first try.

Logo made for the use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is reminiscent of a well-known Turlock sporting activities group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to create a business logo which worked extremely 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 illuminated signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
