TIPS FOR PICKING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design agency presents a money back guarantee try to remember that they can not reimburse the time you invest which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be judged by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain real world examples chances 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 purpose is to echo your personal vision for your company. If a designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they will get paid.

We have undertaken logo design work for builders, schools, diamond miners, wedding singers, diners, retailers, and virtually every other kind of business concern you can imagine. What makes us different compared to traditional designers is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we undertake every design as if it will be used as an electrical sign. Because of our sign first method our identity designs can, and have been employed in everything from clothing labels to neon signs. Our sign first method guarantees that our logos are just as effective whether they are used in TV commercials or web apps, they are consistently identifiable, comprehended, and remembered regardless of size or use.

American Made ★ Design

The thing which really sets ImageCo apart from many of the design agencies that you might possibly have stumbled upon in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are contracted to perform, we do ourselves. Irrespective of the kind of project we undertake, brand identity design, website design, trade show exhibit, or electrical sign, we do not, and never will job out our customer’s projects to agencies located outside the United States. When you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the price of your design project and dictates the terms of how my customers and I conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Plainville organization realizes that they require a logo, yet few start ups thoroughly understand the vital role their company logo will perform in their financial success, or precisely why one business logo works better than another. A business logo has an immediate and lasting effect on the viability of a business, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Plainville companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require contemplation, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and equally emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any device, in print, on product 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 organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and the process of noting something to ensure that it could be identified, its origin originates from the mark burned onto livestock. Today a brand signifies pretty much anything with a motive, whether it be profit or political parties, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive sister, they are both from the same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest targeted at a specific audience, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the target market will identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When someone states the brand names Porsche 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 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 that is what makes people want those products. Brand image is why individuals acquire most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the beginning of the majority of branding companies you’ll find that they are quite often re-branded advertising and marketing agencies. When somebody says they are in advertising and marketing lots 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 visual designer that focuses on a type of visual design which helps shape the image of a business, 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 sales brochures. Some identity designers also develop sites as well as user interfaces. The important role of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the objective of affecting actions, results and also perceptions.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a Plainville coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were launching in an old part of the city and really wanted to cast a nostalgic tone without coming across as boring or low energy. I accomplished both tasks via creating a logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs made for Plainville medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which deals with the clinical examination of samplings of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves fairly 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 makes it more appealing, more focus grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog developed for a family enjoyable facility in Plainville.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun 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 projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they utilized for advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - developed for Plainville traveling 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 area due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead project emotional experiences through the images they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo design by employing 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  Plainville logo design but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Plainville logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A but my client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely disliked 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 specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get objective opinions on the value of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really liked the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to insert 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 design.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo realize how essential a logo is for their business so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo job has it’s portion of difficulties, but the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Plainville publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, however it is the most essential part of a published book because it is in most cases the first thing a person sees in the book shop. Regarding a publisher, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever have to spotlight their product 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 leaves plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo designed 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 come and depart but it looks like that in many instances 1 of the things consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a sense of flight and it was definitely a success.

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

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be vintage cases. For this business logo design I tried to come up with a logo that provided a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be used for everything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another era.

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

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs due to the fact that it seems that almost every dentist incorporates 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 fields when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dental offices do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

I actually love doing dental logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a layout that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters surprised in height to represent a family unit with in the layout.

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 people residing in his city. The majority of 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 very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to summarize exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo style developed for a Plainville hair layout workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo that communicated an atmosphere of peace and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design which did not go the obvious course of crafting simply a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo that 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 usually the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the focus on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian equine logo design created for an equine cattle ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo style for a software program designer the layout attributes as well as iconic Plainville aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive operations. 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 connection in between the software and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of 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. Nevertheless it meant something to the owner of the company and in many cases the meaning supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

A Plainville business logo style featuring a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly realized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a spot to market their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Plainville logo design along with a graphic which grabs the interest of vehicles and projects an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph 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 relaxed habitat.

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

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand concept wasn’t really developed for an Plainville area farm it was in reality designed for a products broker, and this particular company was one of a handful of that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was really to generate a graphic that projects self-assurance, financial success, and affluence.

 Plainville Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo design attribute for externally facing arrowhead and also the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the opportunity to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without recognizing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo design designed for using an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is similar to a famous Plainville sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed dozens of restaurant logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project where I worked directly with the owner to develop 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 neon signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
