TIPS ON DETERMINING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design firm offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can’t refund the time you invest which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be judged by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature actual samples odds are they will not be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and remembered, and it’s objective is to echo your personal vision for your organization. If a logo designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they will get paid.

We’ve performed logo design work for mechanics, universities, diamond miners, party planners, restaurants, retail stores, and just about every other kind of business you can think of.

American Made ★ Design

The thing which really sets ImageCo apart from other design agencies that you probably have come across in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every project we are hired to perform, we perform in-house. Irrespective of the kind of project we take on, logo design, web site, trade show booth, or retail sign, we do not, and never will job-out our customer’s projects to companies located outside the US. When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a broker that marks up the cost of your project and determines the conditions of how you and I conduct business.

QUALITIES OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new McDonough organization understands that they need a logo, but few new business owners thoroughly recognize the crucial role their organization’s logo can perform in their success, or exactly why one business logo performs more effectively than another. A business logo has an instant and sustaining influence on the prosperity of a business, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help McDonough businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require scrutiny, they can be grasped in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to billboards a scalable logo design will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the item or organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo needs to be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb and also a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the act of marking something to ensure that it can be distinguished, its origin originates from the brand burned onto livestock. Nowadays a brand indicates virtually anything with an intention, whether it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

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

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person mentions the brand names Porsche or Corvette what we think of is their brand image, it’s an image that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a vehicle 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, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals want those brands. Brand image is why individuals get 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 look back at the history of many branding firms you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded marketing companies. When somebody claims they are in marketing most people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when a person says “I am in branding”… it simply sounds much more attractive, maybe it’s due to the fact that lots of people do not fully understand what it means to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that describes the visual aspects of a product or company that influence view points. This mainly consists of the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the different colors utilized yet can also consist of sound, lighting, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, touched or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that concentrates on a kind of visual design that helps form the public image of a firm, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some identity designers also develop web sites and also software interfaces. The essential duty of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and a psychological tone with the goal of influencing actions, results and also perceptions.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bike created for a McDonough coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee shop were opening in an old part of town and hoped to project a nostalgic vibe without appearing as boring or low energy. I fulfilled the two jobs via designing a business logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and also bacteria developed for McDonough clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of medicine that works with the laboratory assessment of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology 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 into a logo design.

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents very literally, yet it does it in a way that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and more memorable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog developed for a family fun facility in McDonough.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

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

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really resonate an environment 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more enthusiastic high energy mood.

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

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - made for McDonough traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but rather reveal emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they often convey entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo design by utilizing 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  McDonough logo but also to show the depth in her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 McDonough logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project 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 concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A however the client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his contempt for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral assessments on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he shared 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 include every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their business logo comprehend how essential a logo design is for their business so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo design job has it’s share of hurdles, but the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most important part of a printed book because it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the book store. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will likely ever get to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart nevertheless it seems like that in many occurrences 1 of the items folks tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a spirit of airline flight and it was surely a victory.

 McDonough logo design utilized for advertising as well as a tag layout for Vintage Case features an archaic font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be antique cases. For this business logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that had a fluid old style feel to it and could be used for everything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another era.

Logo created for an orthodontist in McDonough, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can be one of the most challenging logo jobs due to the fact that it seems that every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining 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 company 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 dental industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered 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 obvious, they are still implied in the concept. 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 developed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters 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 logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be overly literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered 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 communicate.

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

Logo layout developed for a McDonough hair layout workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design which related a feeling of tranquility and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious course of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a business logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl featured into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is oftentimes the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the attention on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo style developed for an equine ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian show steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo layout for a software programmer the layout attributes as well as legendary McDonough 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). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive management. The kernel connects the computer 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 design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple of miles from the business 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. But it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the symbolism supporting a company logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it stands for.

Advance logo design created for a McDonoughindoor designer, style function a series of red circles that converge as well as change the letter O in the center of the logo layout.

A McDonough business logo layout featuring an angler in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly understood the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a location to sell off their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their McDonough logo design with an image that pulls in the attention of vehicles and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I realized 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 serene habitat.

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

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo idea wasn’t really designed for an McDonough area farm it was actually developed for an investments broker, and this logo was one of several that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to create a graphic that projects self-confidence, financial success, and affluence.

 McDonough Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo design feature for outwardly dealing with arrow and the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design they preferred, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the liberty to delve into any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without realizing where the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the 1st shot.

Logo design designed for the use of an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is evocative a famous McDonough sports group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created quite a lot of restaurant logos and establishment 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 cool project where I worked directly with the proprietor to design a logo which 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 lighted signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
