TIPS ON SELECTING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to remember that they simply cannot refund the time you commit which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be judged from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t contain real life samples odds are they won’t be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s objective is to echo your personal vision for your company. If a logo designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they will get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Thornton business knows they require a logo, yet few start ups entirely understand the vital role their organization’s logo can play in their becoming successful, or why one logo design performs far better than another. A company logo has an immediate and sustaining influence on the prosperity of a business, select 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 a hindrance for the life of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Thornton businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require deliberation, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any sort of device, in print, on 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 organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and the act of marking something to ensure that it can be distinguished, its genesis comes from the mark branded onto animals. Today a brand signifies basically anything with an intention, whether it be revenue or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the value of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are each from the very same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition directed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to create a mental image that the audience will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person mentions the 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 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 exotic . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals want those brands. Brand image is why people identify with most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the origin of the majority of branding firms you’ll discover that they are quite often re-branded advertising and marketing agencies. When someone claims they are in advertising and marketing the majority of people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when somebody says “I’m in branding”… it just seems much more impressive, maybe it’s due to the fact that the majority of people don’t fully understand what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and kind of attractive.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual elements of a product or agency that influence understandings. This mostly consists of the name, the logo, the packaging, the different colors utilized however can additionally consist of sound, illumination, texture, signage, just about anything that can be seen, touched or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps shape the 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, and also brochures. Some visual designers also develop web sites and also user interfaces. The important role of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and an emotional tone with the objective of influencing actions, end results as well as understandings.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Thornton coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were launching in an old part of the town and wished to visualize a retro tone without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished the two jobs via creating a company logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs made for Thornton clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which researches the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of healthcare which deals with the clinical assessment of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recall where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, but it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 name that makes it more appealing, more interest grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog created for a household fun center in Thornton.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate an atmosphere 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 give the logo a much more lively high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for promotion and marketing. 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 fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Thornton travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather reveal emotional journeys by means of the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey 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 communicated with mere words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Thornton logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Thornton logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I seriously savor and the Coastal Wireless design 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 concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A but the client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t 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 members did not share his contempt for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they loved the design and were able to persuade 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.

Logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo design realize how essential a logo design is for their company so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo job has it’s share of hurdles, however the greatest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, layout for Thornton book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender segment of real estate to work with, however it really is the most essential part of a printed book because it is in most cases the primary thing a person sees in the book shop. For a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

Air LA logo created for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with benches changed to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it seems that in many cases 1 of the traits folks usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a sense of flight and it was surely a success.

 Thornton logo design used for advertising and a tag style for Vintage Instance includes an old font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for musical instruments, which looked to be antique cases. For this brand concept I tried to come up with a logo that had a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could easily be utilized for everything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different era.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Thornton, style include an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most difficult logo design projects considering that it seems that every dentist features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration 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 dental profession.

I really enjoy doing dental care logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a design that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family members not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Most 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 overly literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to summarize specifically how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo design produced for a Thornton hair style studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo which projected an atmosphere of simplicity and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious path of creating just a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo design that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is more often than not the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the main focus on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

Arabian equine logo design developed for a steed ranch that focuses on breeding Arabian show equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo developed a unique business logo design customized to exemplify the unique physical traits of the Arabian kind of equines. With a different head shape and very high tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the highly quite easily recognizable equine breeds in the entire world.

Las Cafe, A Thornton Coffee shop logo design a little restaurant, layout contains a modified script typeface which floats over a team of ornate lines and dots.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Cafe logo style a tiny restaurant, style contains a modified manuscript font style which floats above a group of elaborate lines as well as dots.

Logo style for a software application programmer the design features and renowned Thornton aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and disk managing. The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge in between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in many cases the meaning supporting a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

Evolve logo style created for a Thorntoninterior developer, style function a collection of red circles that intersect and also change the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Thornton business logo layout including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly knew the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a location to sell off their used products to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Thornton logo design design along with an image that captures the interest of vehicles and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Thornton company logo layout has actually an area incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo concept wasn’t actually produced for an Thornton regional farm it was in reality developed for an investments broker, and this particular business logo was one of several that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was to create a graphic that projected self-confidence, financial success, and affluence.

 Thornton Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo design function for externally encountering arrowhead and the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the liberty to investigate any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without understanding where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the very first try.

Logo designed for the use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is evocative a popular Thornton sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted loads of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the business owner to produce a logo design that 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 sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
