POINTERS FOR PICKING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but ultimately a designer can only be evaluated from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not contain actual samples odds are they will never be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s objective is to reflect your personal vision for your business. If a designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they can get paid.

Greeley LOGO DESIGN​

For over 20 years ImageCo has been helping business owners grow unforgettable brand identities. We have done brand identity design work for farmers, universities, heart surgeons, wedding singers, diners, retail stores, and just about every other kind of business concern you can envision. What makes us different compared to our contemporaries is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every design as if it will be used as an electric sign. As a result of our sign first technique our identity designs can, and have been employed in everything from garment labels to neon signs. Our sign first method ensures that our logo designs are equally effective whether they are used in TV commercials or web apps, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and remembered regardless of scale or function.

American Made ★ Design

Something which seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design firms that you might have encountered in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every project we are contracted to do, we perform ourselves. No matter the type of design project we take on, logo, web page, trade show banners, or electrical sign, we do not, and never will job-out our customer’s projects to contractors located outside the US. Whenever you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the price of your design project and imposes the conditions of how my customers and I conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Greeley entrepreneur understands that they need a logo, yet few start ups fully realize the vital role their business logo will perform in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo performs far better than another. A business logo has a critical and lasting influence on the financial success of a business, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Greeley companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not need contemplation, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to store signs a scalable logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work 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 brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the act of marking something so that it could be distinguished, its genesis comes from the mark branded onto livestock. These days a brand indicates pretty much anything with a motive, whether it be profit or politics, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the value of something in the customer’s mind.

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

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When someone mentions the brand names Lamborghini 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 carry us from point A to point B, the the mental 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 purchase those products. Brand image is why individuals acquire most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you reflect on the beginning of the majority of branding agencies you’ll find that they are often rebranded marketing and advertising firms. When someone says they are in advertising and marketing most people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard are 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 image of a business, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some identity designers also build sites and also software interfaces. The essential function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of influencing actions, end results and assumptions.

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening up in an older part of town and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic feel without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs by means of designing a business logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and germs developed for Greeley medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that works with the laboratory examination of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

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

logo design with a jumping green frog created for a household enjoyable center in Greeley.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun 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 projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title 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 destination to go and spring does not really reflect 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic 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 and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Greeley travel professional 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead convey emotional journeys through the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something very similar to this logo design by utilizing 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Greeley logo but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Greeley logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I really savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A however the customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his scorn for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased opinions on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they really loved the concept 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 went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their business logo recognize how important a logo is for their organization so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo design project has it’s portion of difficulties, but the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, however it is the most essential part of a printed book due to the fact that it is in most cases the first thing a person sees in the book store. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will ever get to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, colorful 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 changed to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems that in many occurrences one of the traits consumers often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a spirit of air travel and it was certainly a success.

 Greeley logo design made use of for marketing and also a tag design for Vintage Instance includes an old-fashioned font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be much older cases. For this business logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that provided a fluid vintage 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 point in time.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Greeley, layout consist of an arc with lines converging via it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but 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 dental industry.

I really love doing dentist logos simply 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 clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately 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 suggested in the design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 personalities startled in height to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to describe precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to ponder 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 won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout created for a Greeley hair layout studio featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design that related a feeling of simplicity and class for their new hair salon. I created a concept that did not go the obvious route of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo design which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is oftentimes the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the focus on the perception that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian steed logo design created for an equine ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian show equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Las Coffee shop logo layout a little dining establishment, design contains a customized manuscript font style which hovers above a team of luxuriant lines and dots.

Logo layout for a software application designer the style attributes and also legendary Greeley aspect 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 management, and hard drive operations. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection between the software and computer hardware.

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

Evolve logo style developed for a Greeleyinterior designer, style attribute a collection of red circles that converge and replace the letter O in the center of the logo design.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Greeley business logo layout including a fisherman 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 fans the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment business. Whether 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 interests, a place to sell off their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Greeley business logo design using an illustration that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 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 tranquil habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Greeley company logo layout has actually a field integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo concept wasn’t really created for an Greeley regional farm it was really designed for an investments broker, and this company was one of several that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was really to create an identity that projected esteem, effectiveness, and opulence.

 Greeley Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo design feature for ostensibly facing arrow as well as the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the flexibility to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without realizing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this particular case, I hit a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo design created for making use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script typeface that is similar to a popular Greeley sporting activities group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created quite a lot of restaurant 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 think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking where I worked closely with the proprietor to develop a business 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 neon sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
