TIPS FOR PICKING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can’t reimburse the amount of time you invest which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but inevitably a designer can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain real life examples chances are they will not be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

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

ASPECTS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Apopka business knows they require a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly recognize the crucial role their company logo will play in their success, or precisely why one logo functions more effectively than another. A logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the growth of a company, go with the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Apopka businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require consideration, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to billboards a scalable logo design will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which work on any 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 company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and the act of noting something to make sure that it can be identified, its origin originates from the brand branded onto livestock. Nowadays a brand indicates pretty much anything with a motive, regardless if it be revenue or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the worth of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are both from the same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition directed at a target market, it’s goal is to create a mental image that the target market will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When someone mentions the names Porsche or Corvette what we consider is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a vehicle with 4 wheels that can carry us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people want those brands. Brand image is why individuals acquire specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the origin of many branding companies you’ll find that they are quite often rebranded advertising firms. When somebody says they are in advertising most people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a type of visual design that helps form the perception of a business, a product or a company. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, as well as pamphlets. Some identity designers also build web sites and software interfaces. The crucial function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of influencing actions, results and also perceptions.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a Apopka coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening in an old part of the community and wanted to cast a retro vibe without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished the two tasks by designing a logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and germs developed for Apopka medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which investigates the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of healthcare which works with the laboratory 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 really the only instance I call to mind in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Generally I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather literally, however it does it in a fashion 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 enhancer to the brand that makes it more captivating, more attention grabbing and much more memorable.

logo design with a leaping green frog developed for a family fun center in Apopka.

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 norm of the types of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not 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, 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 feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for Apopka travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather reveal emotional experiences by means of the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something very similar to this logo by using 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Apopka logo but also to show the depth of her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Apopka logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design jobs that I take on I honestly savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A but my client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family didn’t share his hatred for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to share it with friends and family as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased point of views on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they loved the design 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 … 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 weird animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their logo design realize how essential a logo is for their business so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo design project has it’s portion of challenges, but the biggest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, style for Apopka 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 crucial part of a published book because it is usually the initial thing a person sees in the bookstore. Concerning a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will ever have to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

Air LA logo designed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with the bars modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go nevertheless it seems like that in many occurrences 1 of the things individuals usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated 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 title lent itself well to conferring a feeling of flight and it was definitely a winner.

 Apopka logo layout made use of for advertising and also a tag layout for Vintage Instance includes an old-fashioned font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for musical instruments, that seemed to be older cases. For this business logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that had a fluid old style feel to it and could easily be utilized for everything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different era.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Apopka, style consist of an arc with lines converging through it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects due to the fact that it seems that virtually every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design 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 love doing dentist logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 characters surprised in height to stand for a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Many 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 pertaining to 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 provided a unique opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to summarize specifically how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that explains itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo style developed for a Apopka hair layout workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a company logo which related a feeling of peace and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious direction of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a company logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is generally the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the emphasis on the perception that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo style developed for a steed cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian program horses.

Logo layout for a software program developer the design attributes and famous Apopka component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and drive operations. The kernel links 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 and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the owner of the company and in many cases the substance behind a company logo is just as important as how it serves the company it represents.

Advance logo design developed for a Apopkainterior developer, layout feature a series of red circles that converge and also replace the letter O in the center of the logo style.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly understood the market was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to market their secondhand equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Apopka logo design along with an image which garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this Apopka company logo design has actually an area integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem design wasn’t actually produced for an Apopka regional farm it was actually devised for a commodities broker, and this logo design was one of many that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to produce a brand mark that projected self-assurance, success, and wealth.

 Apopka Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo style attribute for externally dealing with 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, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the liberty to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without recognizing where the target is. Fortunately, in this particular instance, I nailed a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo design created for using a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is evocative a popular Apopka sports group logo design.

I’ve designed dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked directly with the proprietor to produce a logo that worked really 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 illuminated signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
