POINTERS FOR IDENTIFYING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be evaluated by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t contain real world samples odds are they will never be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and remembered, and it’s goal is to echo your unique vision for your business. If a designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they will get paid.

We’ve done brand design work for ranchers, educational institutions, diamond miners, wedding singers, restaurants, retail stores, and practically every other kind of business concern you can imagine.

QUALITIES OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Whittier entrepreneur realizes that they need a logo, but few start ups entirely understand the key role their logo can perform in their becoming successful, or why one business logo functions better than another. A logo design has a critical and lasting effect on the growth of a company, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Whittier companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require consideration, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to retail signs a scalable logo design will stay legible and just as 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 organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the process of denoting something to ensure that it could be distinguished, its genesis originates from the mark branded onto livestock. These days a brand signifies virtually anything with an intention, whether it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are both from the very same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest directed at a target market, it’s goal is to develop a mental image that the target market can connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person mentions the names Ferrari 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, elegance, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people buy those products. Brand image is why individuals get specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the history of a lot of branding agencies you’ll discover that they are quite often rebranded advertising and marketing companies. When somebody says they are in marketing lots of 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 Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps form the public image of a company, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, packaging, as well as collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and also pamphlets. Some visual designers also design websites and also software interfaces. The crucial function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and a psychological tone with the goal of influencing activities, end results as well as perceptions.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Whittier coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were launching in an old section of the community and hoped to project a vintage feel without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled both of these tasks by means of designing a logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also germs made for Whittier medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which deals with the laboratory assessment of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Typically I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite 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 explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that makes it more appealing, more attention grabbing and much more memorable.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a family fun center in Whittier.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

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

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

digital photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - created for Whittier travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design 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 capture places or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most professional 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 mere words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo design 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Whittier logo but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Whittier logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design projects that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A however my customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man really hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his aversion for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced point of views on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their business logo recognize how crucial a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo design job has it’s share of obstacles, but the greatest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, design for Whittier publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, yet it is the most critical part of a printed book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person views in the book store. Concerning a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart yet it seems that in many instances one of the traits folks often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a feeling of air travel and it was definitely a winner.

 Whittier logo style utilized for marketing as well as a tag style for Vintage Case features an antiquated font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be antique cases. For this business logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid retro feel to it and could be used for anything from a web page to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another generation.

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

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs because it appears that each and every dentist integrates 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 exact same way dental practices do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo nevertheless it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a design that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a household nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters startled in height to represent a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be representative 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 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 designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to illustrate precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo style created for a Whittier hair layout workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo which communicated an atmosphere of contentment and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which did not go the obvious route of making just a stylized orchid but instead crafted a company logo that suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is in most cases the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the main focus on the emotion that they wanted to project to their patrons.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo layout for a software programmer the style functions and also famous Whittier aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive management. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge in 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 few miles from the 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. However, it intimated something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance behind a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the business it represents.

A Whittier business logo style including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly realized the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not 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 passions, a location to sell off their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Whittier logo design design along with an image that garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that wakens 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 picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Whittier company logo layout has a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t actually produced for an Whittier area farm it was really developed for an investments broker, and this business logo was one of many which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was to create a graphic that projects esteem, success, and prosperity.

 Whittier Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo style attribute for ostensibly dealing with arrow 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 desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the freedom to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the first try.

Logo design developed for using an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is similar to a renowned Whittier sporting activities group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked directly with the owner to design a logo design that worked really 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 illuminated signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
