TIPS ON FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they simply cannot reimburse the time you invest which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be judged from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain actual samples chances are they won’t be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

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

We have undertaken logo design work for ranchers, educational institutions, heart surgeons, wedding singers, bistros, retail stores, and just about every other kind of business you can imagine. What makes us different compared to typical graphic designers is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we undertake every branding project as though it will be utilized as an electrical sign. Because of our sign first method our logo designs can, and have been used in everything from clothing labels to neon signs. Our sign first method guarantees that our logos are just as reliable whether they are used in TV commercials or web headers, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and remembered no matter of scale or function.

American Made ★ Design

The thing that really sets ImageCo apart from many of the design companies that you probably have found in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every project we are retained to do, we perform in-house. Irrespective of the type of design project we take on, logo, web site, trade show display, or electrical sign, we do not, and never will farm-out our customer’s work to companies located outside the USA. Whenever you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a broker that marks up the price of your project and determines the conditions of how we conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Bristol organization understands that they probably need a logo, yet few new business owners entirely grasp the essential role their logo will perform in their becoming successful, or why one logo performs better than another. A company logo has an instant and long-term influence on the growth of a business, pick the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Bristol companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require scrutiny, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel exclusive, and they are suitable for the product or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb and also a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the process of marking something to make sure that it could be identified, its foundation originates from the brand burned onto animals. These days a brand represents basically anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be revenue or government agencies, 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 sister, they are both from the exact same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition targeted at a target market, it’s goal is to develop an image that the target market will identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody mentions the names Ferrari or Mustang what we consider 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 deliver 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 unique . That is brand image and that is what makes people purchase those products. Brand image is why people acquire most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you reflect on the history of many branding companies you’ll find that they are frequently rebranded marketing firms. When someone claims they are in advertising the majority of people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that concentrates on a kind of visual design that helps shape the perception of a company, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and collateral material such as cards, stationery, and also pamphlets. Some identity designers also build sites as well as user interfaces. The necessary role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and a psychological tone with the goal of affecting actions, end results and also perceptions.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Bristol coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee shop were launching in an older part of town and wished to cast a nostalgic feel without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished the two jobs by creating a custom 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 design with a microscopic lense slide and germs created for Bristol clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare that works with the laboratory examination of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, but 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 enhancement to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more interest grabbing and more memorable.

logo style with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a household fun facility in Bristol.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the usual of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually resonate an environment 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better enthusiastic high energy impression.

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

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Bristol 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 shoot places or things but rather reveal emotional experiences through the images they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they often convey whole stories using 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 often have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with mere words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo design by employing 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  Bristol logo but also to show the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Bristol logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but 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 character A but the client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully 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 urge them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get objective judgements on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they adored the design and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to incorporate every other seabird he could think of … eventually 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 given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their business logo understand how vital a logo design is for their organization so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of hurdles, but the largest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Bristol publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, but it really is the most critical part of a printed book because it is usually the first thing a person views in the book shop. With respect to a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will ever get to spotlight their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it looks like that in many cases one of the aspects consumers usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a feeling of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

 Bristol logo design used for marketing and also a tag design for Vintage Instance features an old-fashioned font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for music instruments, that looked to be antique cases. For this logo design I tried to come up with a logo that had a fluid old style feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another era.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Bristol, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects considering that it seems that every single dental professional features 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 professions when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s 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 dental care industry.

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

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

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. Most 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 very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to illustrate exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that describes itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a Bristol hair style studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo that related a spirit of simplicity and class for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious route of designing just a stylized orchid but rather designed a logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is generally the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the attention on the emotion that they wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian equine logo layout developed for a steed cattle ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo developed a unique organization logo concept styled to display the unique physical traits of the Arabian type of horses. By having a different head form and high tail posture, the Arabian is one of the highly quite easily identifiable horse breeds in the entire world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Cafe logo style a tiny dining establishment, design includes a changed manuscript font which hovers above a team of luxuriant lines and dots.

Logo design for a software programmer the layout features and famous Bristol 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). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk management. The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge in between the software program and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated 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 pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it represented something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a company logo is just as important as how it brands the business it represents.

Progress logo layout created for a Bristolinterior designer, style function a collection of red circles that intersect as well as replace the letter O in the center of the logo style.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Bristol business logo style including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly recognized the market place 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 provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to sell off their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Bristol logo design with an image that garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph 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 Bristol company logo layout has actually a field integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo design wasn’t actually composed for an Bristol regional farm it was in reality designed for a products broker, and this company was one of a handful of that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to generate a graphic that projects confidence, success, and prosperity.

 Bristol Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo design function for ostensibly dealing with arrowhead as well as the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design that they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the flexibility to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the very first try.

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

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant 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 favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking in which 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 lighted signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
