STRATEGIES FOR FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design firm presents a money back guarantee try to remember that they can not refund the amount of time you commit which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not contain actual samples chances are they will not be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be understood and remembered, and it’s goal is to echo your personal vision for your business. If a logo designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they will get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new West Carson entrepreneur knows they require a logo, but few start ups entirely realize the key role their logo will perform in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo performs far better than another. A logo has an immediate and lasting impact on the viability of a business, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help West Carson businesses 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 logo designs don’t need contemplation, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo will be legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any type 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 product or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of marking something so that it could be distinguished, its foundation originates from the mark branded onto animals. These days a brand symbolizes basically anything with a motive, regardless of whether it be profit or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are both from the same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest targeted at a target market, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the audience will likely connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody says 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 car 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 that is what makes people buy those brands. 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 Agencies – If you look back at the history of most branding companies you’ll discover that they are quite often rebranded marketing companies. When a person states they are in marketing most people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when a person says “I’m in branding”… it just seems much more attractive, maybe it’s because most individuals don’t recognize what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and attractive.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual elements of a product or agency that affect view points. This primarily includes the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors utilized however can likewise consist of audio, illumination, texture, signs, actually anything that can be seen, felt or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer

Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, and sales brochures.

select signs/logos

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a West Carson coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening in an old part of the city and wished to project a retro atmosphere without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I achieved each of the jobs by creating a business logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also germs developed for West Carson clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of medicine which deals with the laboratory assessment of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Normally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents 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 brand that helps make it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and much more memorable.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog developed for a household fun facility in West Carson.

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 sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever had 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 incorporate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really resonate an atmosphere 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 title itself to give the logo a much more lively high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for advertising and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - made for West Carson travel 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 think it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead convey emotional journeys through the images they record. The thought behind this logo design was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes convey entire stories through 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 often have an emotional resonance which can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo by utilizing the positive space in the design to suggest 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  West Carson logo but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 West Carson logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A however the client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his aversion for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get honest point of views on the value of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they adored 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 insert 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 proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo design recognize how important a logo design is for their business so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo design job has it’s allotment of hurdles, but the largest obstacle is finding 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 client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for West Carson publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, however it really is the most essential part of a printed book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the primary thing a person views in the book shop. For a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever get to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

This 3 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 design developed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches customized to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it seems like that in many occurrences 1 of the traits people usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a sense of air travel and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 West Carson logo design made use of for advertising and marketing and a tag design for Vintage Instance includes an old font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be antique cases. For this logo concept I strove to come up with a logo that offered a fluid vintage feel to it and could be used for anything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different point in time.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in West Carson, layout include an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design 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 dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout 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 concept over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a household nonprofit, the logo design features 4 characters staggered in height to represent a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique 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 don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to summarize exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo style produced for a West Carson hair style workshop including a script font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo which related a feeling of contentment and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a concept which did not go the obvious course of crafting just a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a company logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is usually the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian equine logo layout produced for a steed cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian show equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software application programmer the style features as well as iconic West Carson 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). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge in between the software program and computer 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 explain anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a logo is equally as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

Progress logo style produced for a West Carsoninterior designer, design function a series of red circles that converge and change the letter O in the center of the logo style.

A West Carson business logo design including an angler in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a location to sell their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their West Carson logo design using a graphic that garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this West Carson company logo style has a field integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo idea wasn’t actually created for an West Carson regional farm it was actually created for an investments broker, and this company logo was one of multiple that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was to create an identity that projected self-assurance, success, and wealth.

 West Carson Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo design attribute for ostensibly dealing with arrow and the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design that they preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the opportunity to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where the target is. Fortunately, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the 1st shot.

Logo developed for using a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is evocative a popular West Carson sports group logo.

I’ve created 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 where I worked closely with the proprietor to develop a logo design which worked extremely well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
