POINTERS ON IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be judged by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t feature real world examples chances are they won’t be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to mirror your unique vision for your organization. If a designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

We’ve performed brand design work for builders, colleges, heart surgeons, party planners, restaurants, retail stores, and practically every other kind of business concern you can envision.

Our sign first technique insures that our logos are just as successful whether they are used in television commercials or web applications, they are consistently recognizable, comprehended, and always remembered irrespective of scale or application.

American Made ★ Design

Something which truly sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you might possibly have found in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are enlisted to do, we do ourselves. Irrespective of the kind of design project we take on, business logo, web page, trade show display, or electric sign, we do not, and never will farm out our client’s projects to contractors located outside the USA. Whenever you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the cost of your design project and dictates the terms of how my customers and I conduct business.

ASPECTS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Every new Valinda organization realizes that they need a logo, however few start ups entirely comprehend the key role their logo design will perform in their financial success, or precisely why one logo design functions more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and sustaining influence on the growth of a company, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Valinda companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why 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 understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to store signs a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and just as emotive at 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 right, and they are suitable for the item or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and the act of noting something to make sure that it could be identified, its genesis comes from the brand burned onto livestock. These days a brand symbolizes virtually anything with an objective, whether it be revenue or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the worth of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are each from the same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest aimed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to create an image that the target market will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone says the brand names Ferrari or Mustang what we think about 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 the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals want those brands. Brand image is why individuals acquire specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the beginning of many branding firms you’ll discover that they are frequently rebranded marketing agencies. When a person says 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 heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps shape the public image of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and also collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and brochures. Some identity designers also build sites and software interfaces. The vital role of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of influencing actions, outcomes and assumptions.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Valinda coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were launching in an old section of the town and hoped to project an old-fashioned feel without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I achieved both jobs by creating a logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria made for Valinda clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that deals with the clinical evaluation of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, yet 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 attention grabbing and much more memorable.

logo layout with a leaping green frog created for a family enjoyable facility in Valinda.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the types of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really reflect 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better dynamic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for promotion 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 fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - created for Valinda travel 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather communicate emotional journeys by means of the photos they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they often share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo design by employing 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Valinda logo design but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Valinda logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really 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 form as a stroke in the character A but the customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family did not share his contempt for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get honest assessments on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their business logo understand how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo design project possesses it’s portion of hurdles, however 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 giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Valinda book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most essential part of a printed book because it is often the very first thing a person sees in the bookstore. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity they will likely ever have to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

This three color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of room 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 the bars customized to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart but it seems like that in many cases 1 of the traits people often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was certainly a winner.

 Valinda logo design utilized for marketing and also a label design for Vintage Situation features an archaic font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, which looked to be vintage cases. For this custom logo concept I strove to come up with a logo that had a fluid retro feel to it and could easily be used for every thing from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different point in time.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Valinda, design include an arc with lines converging with it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can be one of the most challenging logo jobs because it appears that each and every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry 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 same way dental practices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design 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 dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a design 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 concept. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities surprised in elevation 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 depictive of the devotion 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 with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to explain precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a Valinda 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 wanted a logo that communicated a sense of serenity and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious course of creating merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo design which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is frequently the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the attention on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian steed logo style created for an equine cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian show steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software program developer the style attributes and also famous Valinda 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 management, and hard drive operations. The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection between the software and hardware.

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

Develop logo style developed for a Valindainterior developer, style function a collection of red circles that converge and also change the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

A Valinda business logo layout featuring 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 over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly understood the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell off their used products to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Valinda logo design design using an illustration which garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Valinda company logo design has actually a field included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand design wasn’t really designed for an Valinda regional farm it was really devised for a commodities broker, and this brand was one of a handful of that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was to produce an identity that projects esteem, success, and opulence.

 Valinda Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo style attribute for outwardly encountering arrowhead as well as the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the flexibility to delve into any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the very first try.

Logo designed for making use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is similar to a well-known Valinda sporting activities group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed loads of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked directly with the business owner to create a business logo that worked very 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 illuminated sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
