TIPS ON FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

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

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s purpose is to echo your unique vision for your organization. If a logo designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they can get paid.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Darien organization knows they need a logo, but few start-ups fully recognize the crucial role their business logo can play in their becoming successful, or why one business logo functions more effectively than another. A business logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the prosperity of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Darien companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require scrutiny, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable business logo will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the item or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the act of denoting something so that it could be recognized, its origin originates from the mark branded onto animals. Nowadays 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 value of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are all from the same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest directed at a target audience, it’s goal is to develop a mental image that the audience will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and identity design. When somebody mentions the brand names Porsche or Mustang what we think about is their brand image, it’s an image 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, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people buy those products. Brand image is why people buy specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you reflect on the beginning of many branding firms you’ll find that they are often re-branded advertising and marketing firms. When somebody says they are in marketing most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when somebody says “I am in branding”… it simply sounds more impressive, possibly it’s since the majority of people do not recognize what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and maybe even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual elements of a product or company that affect understandings. This mostly consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors utilized yet can additionally consist of audio, lighting, texture, signs, just about anything that can be seen, touched or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps form the perception of a firm, a product or a company. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, as well as collateral products such as cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some identity designers also build sites as well as software interfaces. The necessary function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the objective of affecting activities, outcomes as well as perceptions.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Darien coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening in an older part of the town and wished to project a nostalgic tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both of these tasks by means of designing a business logo design that incorporates 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 microscope slide and also bacteria developed for Darien medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that studies the causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that works with the laboratory examination of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Normally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather 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 an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more focus grabbing and even more memorable.

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

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really 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, ultimately 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 brainchild and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I did was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Darien travel 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 specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead convey emotional journeys by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo design was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they often tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo by making use of 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Darien logo but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Darien logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design jobs that I take on I honestly 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 idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however my client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his aversion for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get honest assessments on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they really 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 … in the end 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 are inclined to hire an expert to create their logo design recognize how essential a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of difficulties, however the biggest obstacle 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 providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Darien publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most critical part of a printed book considering that it is usually the primary thing a person sees in the book shop. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the opportunity they will ever have to advertise their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it seems like that in many instances 1 of the traits individuals tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a feeling of airline flight and it was surely a victory.

 Darien logo design used for advertising as well as a tag layout for Vintage Case includes an archaic font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be older cases. For this logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that provided a fluid old style feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web page to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another point in time.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Darien, style include an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects considering that it seems that virtually every dentist features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s 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 really enjoy doing dental business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a concept that doesn’t 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 particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters staggered in height to stand for 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 custom logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate specifically how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a Darien hair layout workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo that carried a feeling of calmness and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious route of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a business logo that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is in most cases the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the emphasis on the emotion that they wanted to transmit to their customers.

Arabian equine logo style developed for a steed cattle ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo style for a software application designer the design features as well as famous Darien 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 administration, process and task control, and disk management. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a connection 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 offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it meant something to the owner of the company and in many cases the substance supporting a logo design is just as important as how it serves the organization it stands for.

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

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to market their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Darien logo design design with an image that seizes the attention of traffic and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Darien company logo style has actually an area integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand idea wasn’t actually composed for an Darien area farm it was in reality developed for a commodities broker, and this logo design was one of several that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was to create a graphic that projected esteem, financial success, and opulence.

 Darien Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo design attribute for externally dealing with arrowhead as well as the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design that they preferred, this 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 realizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I struck a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo developed for the use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font style that is reminiscent of a popular Darien sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted loads of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, 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 in which I worked closely with the proprietor to create a logo design which worked very well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
