TIPS ON CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a designer can only be evaluated by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not feature actual examples chances are they will never be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to reflect your unique vision for your business. If a designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how soon they will get paid.

The thing which really sets ImageCo apart from other design firms that you might have come across in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every 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 increases the cost of your project and determines the terms of how we do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Every new Bridgeport company knows they require a logo, however few start ups thoroughly understand the crucial role their logo design will perform in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo design works more effectively than another. A logo has an instant and lasting influence on the growth of a company, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Bridgeport companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo design will stay legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which 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 personal, and they are suitable for the product or organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and the act of noting something so that it can be identified, its genesis originates from the brand burned onto livestock. Nowadays a brand represents practically anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be profit or politics, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are all from the same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest targeted at a target market, it’s goal is to create an image that the target market will relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody says the names Porsche or Corvette what we think about 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 transport us from point A to point B, the the mental 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 individuals want those products. Brand image is why people purchase specific brands, 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 history of most branding agencies you’ll find that they are quite often rebranded marketing and advertising firms. When a person states they are in advertising the majority of people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a designer that concentrates on a type of visual design which helps form the image of a business, a product or a business. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral products such as cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some identity designers also build websites as well as user interfaces. The essential function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the goal of affecting activities, results and understandings.

Retro logo layout of a bike developed for a Bridgeport coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually launching in an older part of town and hoped to visualize a vintage feel without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved the two tasks via developing a company logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and also bacteria made for Bridgeport clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that analyzes the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of medicine that deals with the laboratory examination of samplings of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the only instance I remember where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents rather 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 enhancement to the name that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog designed for a household fun facility in Bridgeport.

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

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really resonate an atmosphere 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 give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy feel.

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

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Bridgeport 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead project emotional journeys by means of the photos they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they often share 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 fullness which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something the same 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Bridgeport 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.

 Bridgeport logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design jobs that I take on I really 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 but the customer, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his scorn for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased opinions on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they adored the concept 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo design recognize how essential a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo design job possesses it’s portion of difficulties, but the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, style for Bridgeport publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender segment of real estate to work with, yet it is the most necessary part of a printed book due to the fact that it is often the very first thing a person views in the book store. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will ever have to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

Air LA logo made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it seems like that in many cases 1 of the things consumers tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a feeling of flight and it was certainly a success.

 Bridgeport logo style used for advertising as well as a tag design 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 vintage cases. For this brand design I tried to come up with a logo that offered a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could easily be used for every thing from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different era.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Bridgeport, style include an arc with lines converging via it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs due to the fact that it appears that each and every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo but it has to be done 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 dental care logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo made for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 characters surprised in elevation to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the families in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy 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 concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort 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 ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout created for a Bridgeport hair design studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design which carried a feeling of calmness and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious direction of crafting just a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo design which suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is in most cases the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the importance on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Arabian equine logo design produced for a horse ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian program equines.

Logo layout for a software application programmer the design attributes and also iconic Bridgeport 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). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive operations. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a connection 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 few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it represented something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a business logo is just as important as how it brands the business it represents.

A Bridgeport business logo style including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly understood the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a location to market their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Bridgeport logo design utilizing an image that garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm 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 travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Bridgeport company logo style has an area integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo design wasn’t really created for an Bridgeport area farm it was in reality created for an investments broker, and this particular trademark was one of several that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to generate a graphic that projected self-confidence, success, and prosperity.

 Bridgeport Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo layout feature for externally facing arrowhead and the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design that they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the opportunity to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Fortunately, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo design developed for making use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font style that is reminiscent of a popular Bridgeport sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed dozens 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 bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked directly with the business owner to develop a logo design 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 illuminated sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
