STRATEGIES FOR 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 remember that they can not refund the time you invest which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but in the end a design firm can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t feature real life samples odds are they will not be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

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

Something which truly sets ImageCo apart from many of the design agencies that you probably have encountered online, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are contracted to do, we perform ourselves.

Whenever you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a broker that marks up the cost of your project and dictates the terms of how you and I conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Centennial company understands that they require a logo, however few start-ups fully grasp the key role their logo design will play in their success, or exactly why one logo design works far better than another. A business logo has an immediate and long-term influence on the growth of a company, go with 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 a hindrance for the life span of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Centennial companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require consideration, they can be understood in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable business logo will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  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 item or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb and also a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the act of denoting something to ensure that it could be recognized, its origin comes from the brand branded onto livestock. Today a brand symbolizes basically anything with a motive, regardless if it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the value of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s attractive sister, they are each from the very same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition aimed at a target market, it’s objective is to create an image that the audience will likely connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody mentions the brand names Porsche or Mustang what we think of is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of an automobile 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 buy those brands. Brand image is why people buy specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke 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 a lot of branding agencies you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded marketing and advertising agencies. When somebody states they are in advertising most individuals will likely have an idea about what they do. However when a person states “I am in branding”… it simply seems much more attractive, maybe it’s since many people don’t know what it means to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and kind of attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that explains the visual elements of a product or agency that influence view points. This primarily consists of the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the colors used yet can also consist of sound, lights, texture, signs, just about anything that can be seen, felt or heard become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a kind of visual design which helps shape the image of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some visual designers also design web sites and user interfaces. The important duty of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of affecting actions, outcomes and understandings.

select logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bike developed for a Centennial coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening up in an older part of the community and wished to cast a nostalgic feel without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished the two jobs via developing a symbol design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria made for Centennial medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which studies the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare that works with the clinical assessment of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo 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 logo design.

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

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members enjoyable center in Centennial.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the usual of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy feel.

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

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - developed for Centennial travel 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 rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather convey emotional journeys through the images they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they frequently tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something very similar 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  Centennial logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design projects that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however my customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his hatred for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial assessments on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members 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 include 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 design.

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 realize how essential a logo is for their company so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of hurdles, but the biggest challenge is identifying 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 design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Centennial publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, yet it is the most crucial part of a published book due to the fact that it is usually the initial thing a person sees in the book shop. For a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for 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 created for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with the bars modified to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it seems that in many occurrences one of the things folks often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a feeling of flight and it was definitely a winner.

 Centennial logo style made use of for advertising and a tag style for Vintage Situation includes an old-fashioned font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for musical instruments, which looked to be antique cases. For this custom logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that had a fluid retro feel to it and could be used for anything from a web page to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different generation.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Centennial, layout include an arc with lines converging through it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects considering that it appears that each and every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably include an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth related 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 care logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular field of the field 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 eventually I created a concept 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 concept over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family members nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in elevation 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 logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that describes itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style created for a Centennial hair style studio 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 business logo that related a sense of peace and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious direction of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo design that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is more often than not the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the attention on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

Arabian steed logo layout produced for an equine ranch that specializes in reproducing Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo developed a one-of-a-kind creative logo concept customized to epitomize the unique physical traits of the Arabian breed of equines. By having a different head form and higher tail posture, the Arabian is one of the very most quite easily identifiable equine lineages in the world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Cafe logo style a tiny dining establishment, style consists of a changed script typeface which hovers over a team of luxuriant lines and also dots.

Logo style for a software program designer the design functions as well as renowned Centennial 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 control, and disk management. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a bridge in between the software program and hardware.

The logo design 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. However it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a company logo is equally as important as how it serves the business it represents.

Evolve logo design created for a Centennialindoor developer, design function a collection of red circles that converge and replace the letter O in the middle of the logo design.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Centennial business logo design featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names 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 knew the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment business. 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 kinds of passions, a spot to sell their previously owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Centennial business logo design along with a graphic that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I knew 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 relaxed habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Centennial company logo style has an area included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo design wasn’t actually designed for an Centennial area farm it was in reality developed for an investments broker, and this company was one of multiple that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was actually to create a graphic that projects trust, financial success, and opulence.

 Centennial Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo style attribute for outwardly facing arrow and also the arrowheads indicate 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 wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the freedom to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo design made for the use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is evocative a famous Centennial sporting activities group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed loads of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked directly with the owner to develop a business logo 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 signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
