STRATEGIES FOR DETERMINING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design firm offers 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

Some designers talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature real world samples chances are they will never be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and remembered, and it’s goal is to echo your personal vision for your business. If a designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which really sets ImageCo apart from other design agencies that you may have come across in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are enlisted to perform, we perform ourselves. Regardless of the type of project we accept, logo design, business website, trade show exhibit, or retail sign, we do not, and never will job out our client’s projects to agencies based outside the US. Whenever you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the price of your project and determines the conditions of how we do business.

ASPECTS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Ken Caryl organization understands that they probably need a logo, however few start-ups thoroughly understand the vital role their business logo will perform in their financial success, or why one logo design performs more effectively than another. A business logo has an instant and long-term effect on the growth of a company, select the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Ken Caryl companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work 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 right, and they are suitable for the product or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the process of denoting something to make sure that it can be distinguished, its genesis comes from the brand burned onto livestock. Today a brand represents pretty much anything with an objective, regardless of whether it be earnings or politics, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are both from the very same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest directed at a target market, it’s objective is to create a mental image that the audience can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody says 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 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 freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals purchase 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 people can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the beginning of the majority of branding companies you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded marketing firms. When a person says they are in advertising most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that focuses on a kind of visual design that helps shape the image of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, as well as collateral products such as cards, stationery, and also pamphlets. Some visual designers also build websites as well as user interfaces. The important role of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and also a psychological tone with the objective of influencing actions, results and assumptions.

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Ken Caryl coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening in an old section of the city and hoped to project a vintage tone without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both jobs by developing a trademark design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria designed for Ken Caryl clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare that deals with the clinical assessment of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite literally, but it does it in a fashion that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more focus grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog developed for a family members fun facility in Ken Caryl.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 norm of the kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo 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 better dynamic high energy mood.

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

digital photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - created for Ken Caryl 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 niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather project emotional journeys through the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo design 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Ken Caryl logo design but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Ken Caryl logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I truly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really 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 silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced viewpoints on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo design recognize how essential a logo is for their organization so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo design job possesses it’s allotment of obstacles, however the greatest challenge is identifying 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 design with bamboo in the background, design for Ken Caryl book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, but it really is the most critical part of a printed book given that it is often the primary thing a person sees in the book store. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will likely ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books.

This 3 color design is vivid, colorful and eye-catching and it gives plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo designed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars modified to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it seems like that in many occurrences 1 of the aspects consumers usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while 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 imparting a feeling of air travel and it was certainly a success.

 Ken Caryl logo style utilized for marketing as well as a tag layout for Vintage Case features an antiquated font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for musical instruments, that seemed to be antique cases. For this brand design I tried to come up with a logo that had a fluid old-fashioned 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 Ken Caryl, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs because it seems that almost every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dentists do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

I actually love doing dentist logo designs 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 course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a design that does not have a single 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 design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the people in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be far too literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate how people should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style created for a Ken Caryl hair layout studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo that carried an atmosphere of tranquility and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious direction of crafting simply a stylized orchid but instead designed a logo design that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is frequently the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian horse logo layout produced for a steed cattle ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo developed an original logo concept tailored to exemplify the unique physical traits of the Arabian breed of horses. By having an identifiable head shape and higher tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the very most quite easily identifiable horse lineages in the world.

Las Cafe logo layout a little dining establishment, layout includes a modified manuscript typeface which hovers over a team of ornate lines and dots.

Logo style for a software application developer the style features as well as legendary Ken Caryl 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 administration, process and task management, and disk operations. The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a connection in between the software program and computer hardware.

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

Progress logo style created for a Ken Carylindoor developer, style attribute a collection of red circles that intersect as well as replace the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

Evolv Design is a Ken Caryl interior design company and this logo design is representational of the work that an interior designer does in. An interior designer is an individual who organizes, explores, coordinates, and manages such projects. Interior design is a multifaceted profession that includes conceptual development, space planning, location inspections, programming, investigation, corresponding with the stakeholders of a project, building and construction management, and execution of the design.

This particular Ken Caryl logo design job was carried out for a leadership consultant that assists business professionals to develop into more effective at overseeing people, expectations, and profitability.

A Ken Caryl business logo style featuring an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a location to sell off their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Ken Caryl business logo design utilizing a graphic which garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Ken Caryl company logo layout has an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo design wasn’t really produced for an Ken Caryl area farm it was actually designed for a commodities broker, and this particular company logo was one of multiple that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was actually to create a brand mark that projects esteem, effectiveness, and affluence.

 Ken Caryl Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo style feature for ostensibly encountering arrowhead as well as the arrowheads suggest 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 desired, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the flexibility to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo developed for the use of an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font that is reminiscent of a popular Ken Caryl sports group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

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 US, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked closely with the owner to design a logo which worked extremely 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 neon signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
