STRATEGIES ON DETERMINING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design firm presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they simply cannot reimburse the amount of time you commit which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but in the end a design firm can only be judged by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not feature real world samples odds are they will never be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

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

American Made ★ Design

The one difference that really sets ImageCo apart from many of the design firms that you might possibly have encountered in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are contracted to perform, we perform ourselves. Irrespective of the kind of design project we undertake, logo, website, trade show display, or electrical sign, we do not, and never will contract out our customer’s projects to organizations located outside the USA. Whenever you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the cost of your design project and determines the conditions of how my customers and I conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Alpharetta business knows they need a logo, yet few new business owners fully realize the vital role their organization’s logo can play in their financial success, or precisely why one logo design functions more effectively than another. A business logo has a critical and lasting impact on the financial success of a business, select the correct 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 a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Alpharetta companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require scrutiny, they can be comprehended in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo will continue to be legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work 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 right, and they are suitable for the product or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understanding branding

Branding is also a strategic popularity competition directed at a target market, it’s objective is to create a mental image that the target market will likely identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person states the brand names Porsche or Mustang what we think about 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 transport us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals want those products. Brand image is why individuals acquire specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the origin of many branding firms you’ll discover that they are often re-branded advertising firms. When someone claims they are in advertising many people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when someone claims “I’m in branding”… it simply seems more attractive, probably it’s because lots of people don’t fully understand what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and kind of sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that explains the visual components of a product or business that affect view points. This largely consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the colors utilized however can also include sound, illumination, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, felt or heard belong to a brand identity.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Alpharetta coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and cafe were opening in an older part of town and really wanted to cast a vintage atmosphere without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished the two tasks via creating a logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria designed for Alpharetta medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that analyzes the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of medicine which works with the laboratory examination of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, yet it does it in a fashion 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 brand that makes it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog designed for a household fun facility in Alpharetta.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 norm of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

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

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

photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - designed for Alpharetta travel 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 area because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead project emotional experiences by means of the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all good 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 a lot more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo design 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  Alpharetta logo design but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Alpharetta logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly 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 silhouette as a stroke in the character A but my customer, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his scorn for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the value of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they adored 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 insert 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.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their logo design understand how vital a logo design is for their company so they are much more vested in the outcome. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of obstacles, but the biggest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, style for Alpharetta publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most essential part of a printed book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person sees in the book shop. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will ever have to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart nevertheless it looks like that in many instances 1 of the aspects individuals often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a spirit of flight and it was certainly a winner.

 Alpharetta logo style utilized for advertising and also a label design for Vintage Instance includes an antiquated font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be much older cases. For this logo design I sought to come up with a logo that offered a fluid vintage feel to it and could be used for every thing from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different era.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Alpharetta, style include an arc with lines converging through it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs considering that it appears that every single dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless 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 dental profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and eventually 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 implied in the design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent 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 depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo 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 tries to use the logo design to explain specifically how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a Alpharetta hair design studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a company logo which carried a feeling of simplicity and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious direction of creating simply a stylized orchid but instead designed a company logo that suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is frequently the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the attention on the perception that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Logo layout for a software program designer the layout attributes and famous Alpharetta component 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 administration, process and task control, and hard drive managing. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the 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. But it symbolized something to the owner of the business and in many cases the meaning supporting a logo is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly realized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Alpharetta logo design using a graphic which pulls in the interest of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm 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 illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Alpharetta company logo design has actually a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

Good in that it gives a designer the liberty to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without knowing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo design made for making use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font style that is similar to a famous Alpharetta sports team logo.

I have created loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked closely with the proprietor to produce a business logo that worked really 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 signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
