POINTERS ON SELECTING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they simply cannot reimburse the time you commit which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but ultimately a designer can only be determined from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not feature real life examples chances are they won’t be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s purpose is to mirror your personal vision for your business. If a logo designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Visitacion Valley business realizes that they need a logo, however few start-ups thoroughly understand the crucial role their business logo will play in their success, or precisely why one logo design performs better than another. A logo has an immediate and long-term effect on the growth of a business, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Visitacion Valley companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of marking something to ensure that it could be distinguished, its foundation originates from the mark branded onto livestock. Nowadays a brand indicates practically anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be earnings or political parties, a brand is an inherent aspect of defining the worth of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are all from the same family, the distinction 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 competition directed at a target audience, it’s goal is to create an image that the audience can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and identity design. When a person mentions the brand names Lamborghini or Corvette what we think of is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car with 4 wheels that can carry us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals want those brands. Brand image is why individuals get most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the beginning of a lot of branding firms you’ll find that they are often rebranded marketing and advertising firms. When somebody states they are in advertising many people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when somebody states “I am in branding”… it simply seems more attractive, maybe it’s due to the fact that lots of people do not know what it means to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and perhaps even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that defines the visual aspects of a product or agency that influence perceptions. This primarily includes the name, the logo, the product packaging, the different colors used yet can additionally consist of sound, lights, texture, signs, just about anything that can be seen, felt or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a type of visual design that helps form the perception of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, as well as collateral material such as cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some identity designers also build web sites and software interfaces. The necessary function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the objective of influencing actions, outcomes and also perceptions.

select logos & signs

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Visitacion Valley coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually launching in an older part of the community and wanted to cast a vintage tone without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both jobs by means of creating a company logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide as well as bacteria made for Visitacion Valley clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which researches the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the laboratory assessment of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Typically I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather literally, however it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 enhancer to the name that makes it more appealing, more interest grabbing and more memorable.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog created for a family fun center in Visitacion Valley.

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 usual of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a couple springs into the design 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more dynamic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design 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 a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and also a tree - made for Visitacion Valley 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead convey emotional journeys by means of the photos they record. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they often convey entire 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 communicated with just words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo design by utilizing 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Visitacion Valley logo but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Visitacion Valley logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment 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 idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A but the customer, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to share it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased assessments on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo comprehend how important a logo is for their company so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s portion of difficulties, but the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, layout for Visitacion Valley publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin segment of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most important part of a published book due to the fact that it is often the very first thing a person views in the book store. For a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever get to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it seems like that in many cases 1 of the things consumers tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a feeling of air travel and it was certainly a victory.

 Visitacion Valley logo design made use of for advertising and also a tag style for Vintage Case includes an antiquated font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for music instruments, which looked to be vintage cases. For this custom logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid old style feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another generation.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Visitacion Valley, layout include an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo design jobs because it appears that every single dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo but 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 dentistry profession.

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

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

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo features 4 characters staggered in elevation 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 custom logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very 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 institution wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to explain how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a Visitacion Valley hair layout studio including a script font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design which conveyed a feeling of serenity and connection for their new hair salon. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious course of designing merely a stylized orchid but rather delivered a business logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is usually the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the attention on the perception that they wanted to project to their customers.

Logo layout for a software program developer the design features as well as famous Visitacion Valley aspect 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 control, and hard drive operations. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge 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 couple of 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. However it meant something to the owner of the business and in many cases the meaning supporting a company logo is just as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

A Visitacion Valley business logo design featuring an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly recognized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a spot to sell their secondhand equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Visitacion Valley logo design design using an illustration that pulls in the attention of traffic and sends an image that invokes the passion 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 tranquil habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Visitacion Valley company logo style has actually a field integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem concept wasn’t really developed for an Visitacion Valley regional farm it was in reality devised for an investments broker, and this particular company was one of multiple that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was really to make an identity that projects confidence, success, and prosperity.

 Visitacion Valley Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo design feature for externally encountering arrow and the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design they preferred, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the liberty to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo design made for using an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font that is evocative a famous Visitacion Valley sports group logo.

I’ve crafted quite a lot of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bakeshops 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 owner to create a logo design that worked really 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 sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
