POINTERS ON DETERMINING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be evaluated by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not feature real world samples odds are they will not be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be understood and remembered, and it’s goal is to mirror your unique vision for your company. If a logo designer isn’t focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

We have performed logo design work for ranchers, universities, diamond miners, wedding singers, restaurants, retail stores, and practically every other kind of business concern you can imagine.

Something that truly sets ImageCo apart from many of the design companies that you may have encountered in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every project we are brought on board to do, we do ourselves.

Whenever you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the cost of your design project and imposes the conditions of how my customers and I do business.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Valley Glen business knows they probably need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the essential role their business logo can make in their success, or why one logo works far better than another. A business logo has an immediate and lasting impact on the financial success of a company, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Valley Glen businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require consideration, they can be comprehended in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will remain legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any 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 item or business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be ageless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the process of marking something to ensure that it can be distinguished, its origin originates from the brand burned onto animals. These days a brand indicates basically anything with an intention, regardless if it be revenue or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

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

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person mentions the names Porsche or Corvette what we think about 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 image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals buy those products. Brand image is why individuals purchase specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the origin of most branding agencies you’ll discover that they are often re-branded advertising companies. When a person claims they are in advertising and marketing most people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when someone states “I’m in branding”… it just sounds more impressive, probably it’s since most individuals don’t understand what it means to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that describes the visual components of a product or company that influence perceptions. This largely includes the name, the logo, the packaging, the different colors utilized but can also include sound, lights, texture, signage, really 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 concentrates on a kind of visual design that helps form the image of a company, a product or a business. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and collateral material such as cards, stationery, as well as pamphlets. Some visual designers also build websites as well as software interfaces. The crucial function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and an emotional tone with the objective of affecting activities, end results and assumptions.

select logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Valley Glen coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an older section of the area and wished to visualize an old-fashioned atmosphere without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled the two tasks by means of developing a logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria developed for Valley Glen clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that deals with the laboratory evaluation of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Typically I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves 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 an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more appealing, more interest grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo design with a leaping green frog designed for a household fun center in Valley Glen.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun 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 types of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really reflect an environment 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a more lively high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for advertising and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I created was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Valley Glen travel digital 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead project emotional experiences through the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with mere words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by using 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Valley Glen logo design but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Valley Glen logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A however the customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the value of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they really loved the design 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their business logo realize how essential a logo design is for their organization so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of challenges, however the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Valley Glen book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin slice of real estate to work with, however it is the most essential part of a published book given that it is often the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever get to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, colorful and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it looks like that in many occurrences 1 of the things consumers often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a spirit of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

 Valley Glen logo layout made use of for advertising and marketing and also a tag design for Vintage Case features an old typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, that appeared to be much older cases. For this custom logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that had a fluid old style feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another generation.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Valley Glen, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that virtually every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dental offices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied 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 designed for a household nonprofit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in height to represent a family with in the design.

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 representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a Valley Glen hair layout workshop 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 desired a company logo which conveyed a feeling of peace and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious course of designing merely a stylized orchid but instead created a logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is more often than not the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the attention on the perception that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian steed logo style developed for a horse ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian program equines.

Logo style for a software designer the style attributes and also famous Valley Glen element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

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

A Valley Glen business logo design featuring an angler in the center of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly realized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a place to market their used goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Valley Glen logo design along with a graphic which pulls in the interest of vehicles and sends an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew 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 style MQ ranches, this Valley Glen company logo design has actually a field incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo idea wasn’t actually designed for an Valley Glen area farm it was actually devised for a products broker, and this logo was one of several which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to develop a graphic that projected confidence, effectiveness, and luxury.

 Valley Glen Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo layout function for outwardly facing arrowhead and also the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the freedom to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I hit a bullseye with the first go.

Logo created for making use of an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font that is similar to a famous Valley Glen sporting activities team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked closely with the proprietor to produce 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 lighted signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
