STRATEGIES ON FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design company presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can not refund the amount of time you commit which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but ultimately a designer can only be judged from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain actual samples chances are they will not be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to echo your unique vision for your company. If a logo designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they can get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Willowbrook entrepreneur realizes that they require a logo, yet few start-ups thoroughly understand the key role their business logo can make in their success, or why one logo design works better than another. A business logo has a critical and long-term influence on the viability of a company, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Willowbrook businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need consideration, they can be comprehended in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any sort of device, in print, on product 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 company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is both a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the process of noting something to make sure that it could be recognized, its genesis originates from the mark branded onto livestock. Today a brand symbolizes virtually anything with a motive, regardless if it be profit or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the worth of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are all 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 targeted at a target audience, it’s objective is to produce 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 someone mentions the names Lamborghini 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 a car 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 that is what makes people want those products. 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 Firms – If you reflect on the history of the majority of branding companies you’ll find that they are often re-branded advertising firms. When someone claims they are in advertising most individuals will likely have an idea about what they do. However when somebody claims “I am in branding”… it just sounds much more impressive, possibly it’s due to the fact that lots of people don’t recognize what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and perhaps even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that explains the visual aspects of a product or company that affect perceptions. This mainly includes the name, the logo design, the packaging, the colors utilized however can additionally consist of sound, illumination, texture, signage, just about anything that can be seen, touched or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a designer that concentrates on a kind of visual design that helps shape the public image of a business, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as sales brochures. Some identity designers also build sites and software interfaces. The necessary duty of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and also a psychological tone with the goal of influencing activities, end results and perceptions.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bike developed for a Willowbrook coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening up in an old section of town and wanted to project a nostalgic tone without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks via designing a company logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs designed for Willowbrook medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that researches the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which deals with the clinical evaluation of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the only instance I call to mind where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Usually I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite literally, yet 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and more memorable.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog designed for a household enjoyable center in Willowbrook.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually resonate an atmosphere 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, eventually 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 feel.

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

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - made for Willowbrook traveling 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 sector because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather communicate emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they often tell entire stories through 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 often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with mere words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by making use of 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Willowbrook logo design but also to illustrate the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Willowbrook logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design jobs that I take on I truly relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly 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 form as a stroke in the letter A however my customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his hatred for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to share it with colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get neutral judgements on the value of a design. Fortunately, he shared 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their logo recognize how crucial a logo design is for their company so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of challenges, but the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Willowbrook book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, but it is the most critical part of a printed book considering that it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the book store. For a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity they will ever get to advertise their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go nevertheless it seems like that in many instances 1 of the items consumers tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a spirit of air travel and it was certainly a success.

 Willowbrook logo design used for marketing and also a label style for Vintage Instance features an old-fashioned typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be older cases. For this brand design I sought to come up with a logo that had a fluid vintage feel to it and could easily be used for every thing from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from another point in time.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Willowbrook, design include an arc with lines converging via it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo jobs because it seems that virtually every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and inevitably 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 design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a household not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 characters startled in height to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted 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. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be far too literal about 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 project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to illustrate how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a Willowbrook hair design 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 required a logo which conveyed a feeling of relaxation and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious route of creating just a stylized orchid but rather crafted a business logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is generally the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the focus on the emotion that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian horse logo layout developed for an equine ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian show steeds.

Logo design for a software program developer the style features and also renowned Willowbrook 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). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, 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 performs as a bridge in between the software and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated 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 regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the significance behind a logo design is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

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 realized the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a spot to sell off their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Willowbrook logo design using an image which pulls in the interest of traffic and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

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

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem concept wasn’t really composed for an Willowbrook regional farm it was actually designed for a commodities broker, and this particular trademark was one of multiple which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was really to produce an identity that projects self-confidence, effectiveness, and affluence.

 Willowbrook Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo style attribute for externally facing arrowhead and the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design they wanted, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides 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 knowing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular instance, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo designed for the use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font that is evocative a renowned Willowbrook sporting activities team logo.

I’ve crafted quite a lot of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking in which I worked directly with the business owner to create a logo design that worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
