STRATEGIES ON PICKING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be judged by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not contain real life samples chances are they will not be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to reflect your personal vision for your company. If a designer isn’t focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they will get paid.

Westminster LOGO DESIGN​

For over two decades ImageCo has been helping business owners develop notable brand identities. We have undertaken branding work for builders, schools, heart surgeons, party planners, coffee shops, retail stores, and practically every other kind of business concern you can think of. What makes us different compared to typical graphic designers is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every logo design project as if it will be employed as an electrical sign. Because of our sign first approach our logo designs can, and have been utilized in everything from garment labels to electrical signs. Our sign first approach ensures that our logo designs are just as successful whether they are used in TV commercials or website headers, they are consistently identifiable, comprehended, and always remembered regardless of size or function.

American Made ★ Design

The thing that seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the 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 contracted to do, we perform ourselves. No matter the type of project we accept, business logo, web page, trade show booth, or retail sign, we do not, and never will farm out our client’s work to 3rd parties based outside the USA. When you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the price of your design project and determines the terms of how my customers and I do business.

QUALITIES OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Westminster company understands that they probably need a logo, yet few start-ups thoroughly grasp the key role their logo will make in their success, or precisely why one logo works more effectively than another. A logo has a critical and lasting impact on the success of a business, choose 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 longevity of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Westminster businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need deliberation, they can be understood in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to store signs a scalable business logo will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any type of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel personal, and they are suitable for the item or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark as well as the act of marking something to make sure that it could be distinguished, its foundation originates from the brand branded onto animals. Nowadays a brand symbolizes pretty much anything with an intention, whether it be profit or political parties, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the value of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are all from the exact 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 strategic popularity contest aimed at a target market, it’s goal is to develop a mental image that the target market can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When someone states the names Lamborghini or Corvette what we consider 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 transport us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, beauty, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people want those products. Brand image is why individuals identify with specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the history of a lot of branding agencies you’ll discover that they are often re-branded marketing agencies. When somebody says they are in advertising and marketing most people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that focuses on a type of visual design that helps form the perception of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and brochures. Some visual designers also develop web sites and also user interfaces. The important function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and also a psychological tone with the objective of influencing activities, end results as well as understandings.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Westminster coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and bistro were launching in an old part of the area and hoped to cast an old-fashioned vibe without coming across as boring or low energy. I achieved both jobs by means of creating a trademark concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria developed for Westminster clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that works with the laboratory evaluation of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents quite literally, however it does it in a way that incorporates 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 brand that helps make it more appealing, more attention grabbing and even more memorable.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog designed for a family members fun facility in Westminster.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better lively high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Westminster traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead reveal emotional journeys by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo by using 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  Westminster logo but also to show the depth of her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Westminster logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I honestly savor and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form 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 man really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his contempt for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they really 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 include 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.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo design realize how vital a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s allotment of obstacles, however the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for Westminster publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, but it is the most crucial part of a printed book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the bookstore. With regard to a publisher, it’s the opportunity they will likely ever have to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase 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 design developed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with benches changed to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems that in many cases one of the aspects folks usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a spirit of air travel and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 Westminster logo design used for marketing and also a label layout for Vintage Situation includes an old-fashioned font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for musical instruments, that appeared to be antique cases. For this logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that had a fluid vintage feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web site to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another generation.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Westminster, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most difficult logo design projects considering that it seems that every single dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

I really love doing dental care logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo developed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in height to stand for 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 custom logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the families in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining 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 business or organization wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to explain specifically how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a Westminster hair layout workshop including a script font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design that conveyed a sense of ease and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious route of crafting simply a stylized orchid but instead designed a logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is usually the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the focus on the perception that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo layout developed for a steed ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian show steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo developed a unique custom logo concept tailored to manifest the unique physical traits of the Arabian type of equines. By having a distinctive head shape and very high tail posture, the Arabian is one of the most immediately recognizable horse types in the entire world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Cafe logo style a tiny dining establishment, design consists of a changed manuscript font which hovers above a team of ornate lines and dots.

Logo layout for a software programmer the style functions and also renowned Westminster component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk managing. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge in between the software program and hardware.

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

Progress logo layout developed for a Westminsterindoor designer, design function a series of red circles that intersect as well as change the letter O in the middle of the logo design.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Westminster business logo design featuring a fisherman 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 over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly understood the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to sell off their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Westminster business logo design with a graphic which seizes the attention of traffic and sends an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Westminster company logo style has actually an area incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t actually composed for an Westminster regional farm it was actually designed for a commodities broker, and this trademark was one of a handful of that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to create a graphic that projected trust, effectiveness, and wealth.

 Westminster Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo design attribute for externally encountering arrowhead and also the arrowheads imply that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally 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 grants a designer the opportunity to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without recognizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I hit a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo design designed for making use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is reminiscent of a well-known Westminster sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant business logos and business 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 absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking in which I worked directly with the business owner to design a logo that 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 over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
