POINTERS ON FINDING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design firm can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t contain real world examples chances are they will not be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose 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 quickly they can get paid.

We have undertaken brand design work for builders, universities, heart surgeons, party planners, diners, retail stores, and virtually every other kind of business concern you can imagine.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which truly sets ImageCo apart from many of the design companies that you might possibly have encountered in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are contracted to do, we do ourselves. Irrespective of the type of project we accept, logo, business website, trade show banners, or electrical sign, we do not, and never will job-out our client’s projects to contractors based outside the United States. When you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the price of your project and dictates the conditions of how we do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Loveland business knows they require a logo, however few start-ups fully understand the vital role their logo can make in their success, or why one logo functions more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and long term impact on the financial success of a company, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Loveland companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require deliberation, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to billboards a scalable logo design will stay legible and just as emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which function 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 represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and the process of noting something to make sure that it can be recognized, its genesis originates from the brand branded onto animals. Nowadays a brand represents practically anything with a motive, regardless if it be revenue or politics, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are all 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 competition directed at a target audience, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the audience will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person states the names Lamborghini or Mustang what we think of is their brand image, it’s an image that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a vehicle with 4 wheels that can transport us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people buy those products. Brand image is why people get specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the beginning of many branding companies you’ll find that they are quite often re-branded marketing and advertising firms. When someone claims they are in marketing lots of people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when a person states “I’m in branding”… it simply seems much more impressive, probably it’s because most people don’t understand what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that explains the visual components of a product or business that affect understandings. This largely consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors utilized however can additionally consist of audio, illumination, texture, signs, actually anything that can be seen, touched or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a type of visual design that helps form the public image of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, and also sales brochures.

Retro logo style of a bicycle created for a Loveland coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening in an older part of the city and hoped to cast a vintage feel without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks via creating a company logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria designed for Loveland clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which works with the laboratory examination of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the sole instance I call to mind in which I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves very 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping green frog designed for a family enjoyable facility in Loveland.

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 jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design 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 a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Loveland 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 niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but rather communicate emotional journeys by means of the images they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes share 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 frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo design by utilizing the positive space in the design to suggest one thing and then at the same time using the negative space to expand upon what was communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Loveland 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.

 Loveland logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design jobs that I take on I seriously take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape 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 particular man truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his contempt for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial assessments on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they 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 include every other seabird he could think of … ultimately 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 weird creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo understand how essential a logo is for their organization so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo design job has it’s portion of obstacles, but the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for Loveland publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most critical part of a published book given that it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the book store. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will likely ever have to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it seems like that in many occurrences one of the things individuals usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a good sense of airline flight and it was surely a victory.

 Loveland logo style used for marketing and a label style for Vintage Instance features an archaic font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for musical instruments, that seemed to be older cases. For this business logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that provided a fluid old style feel to it and could be used for everything from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different point in time.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Loveland, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs due to the fact that it appears that every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely include 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 performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

I really enjoy doing dentistry logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually 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 implied in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities startled in height to stand for a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people 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 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 understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to describe precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a Loveland hair design studio including a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design which carried a sense of relaxation and class for their new hair studio. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious route of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is more often than not the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the attention on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

Arabian horse logo style created for an equine cattle ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian program horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo designed a one-of-a-kind logotype design styled to epitomize the unique physical traits of the Arabian kind of equines. With an unique head shape and high tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the highly easily identifiable horse lineages in the world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Coffee shop logo style a little dining establishment, style includes a changed manuscript font style which hovers above a group of elaborate lines as well as dots.

Logo layout for a software programmer the layout functions and famous Loveland element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive operations. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge between the software and 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 explain anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it meant something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance behind a logo is equally as important as how it brands the company it represents.

Develop logo style created for a Lovelandinterior developer, style function a collection of red circles that converge and change the letter O in the center of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Loveland business logo layout including an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly knew the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Loveland business logo design along with an illustration which grabs the interest of vehicles and projects an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor 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 serene habitat.

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

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo design wasn’t really created for an Loveland area farm it was actually created for a commodities broker, and this particular company logo was one of a handful of which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was to develop a graphic that projects confidence, success, and prosperity.

 Loveland Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo layout function for externally 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 kind of logo design that they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the freedom to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without recognizing where the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the very first shot.

Logo design developed for making use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is similar to a famous Loveland sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve crafted loads of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked directly 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 that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
