POINTERS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design 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 simply cannot refund the amount of time you commit which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms 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 feature real life samples odds are they will never be able to produce a 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 designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they will get paid.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Belleville entrepreneur knows they require a logo, but few start ups thoroughly realize the key role their logo design can perform in their financial success, or exactly why one logo works more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and lasting impact on the prosperity of a company, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Belleville companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t need contemplation, they can be comprehended in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable logo will stay legible and equally emotive at any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any device, in print, on 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 business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb and also a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of denoting something to ensure that it could be identified, its genesis comes from the mark branded onto livestock. These days a brand symbolizes basically anything with a motive, regardless of whether it be revenue or politics, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s attractive sister, they are each from the very same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition aimed at a specific audience, it’s goal is to develop a mental image that the target market will relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and identity design. When a person states the brand names Lamborghini or Corvette 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 carry 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 brand image is what makes individuals purchase those products. Brand image is why individuals identify with most things, from Pepsi to Coke 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 most branding companies you’ll discover that they are quite often rebranded advertising firms. When someone says they are in advertising and marketing lots of people will likely have an idea about what they do. But when a person states “I am in branding”… it just sounds much more impressive, possibly it’s since most people don’t understand what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that defines the visual elements of a product or agency that affect understandings. This largely includes the name, the logo, the product packaging, the different colors used but can also consist of sound, lighting, texture, signage, just about anything that can be seen, felt or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps shape the image of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, and brochures. Some identity designers also build websites and also user interfaces. The vital function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of affecting activities, outcomes and also perceptions.

select logos & signs

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Belleville coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually launching in an older part of the town and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic feel without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs via developing a logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and also bacteria created for Belleville medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the root causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of medicine which deals with the laboratory evaluation of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is really the only instance I recall in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Usually I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents 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 an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that makes it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping green frog designed for a household enjoyable center in Belleville.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

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

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - made for Belleville traveling digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather communicate emotional experiences by means of the photos they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes share entire stories through 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 that can’t be conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Belleville 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.

 Belleville logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design jobs that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly 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 form as a stroke in the letter A however my client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy really hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his hatred for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased opinions on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really liked 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … eventually 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 because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their business logo comprehend how vital a logo is for their organization so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo job has it’s share of hurdles, but the greatest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, style for Belleville publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, yet it is the most important part of a printed book considering that it is in most cases the first thing a person views in the book store. With regard to a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will likely ever get to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women 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 made for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with benches customized to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it looks like that in many instances 1 of the items folks tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a good sense of air travel and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 Belleville logo layout made use of for advertising as well as a label design for Vintage Case features an archaic font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be vintage cases. For this logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid retro 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 another point in time.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Belleville, style include an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo design projects because it seems that every dental professional includes 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 careers when it comes to small business branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

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

I actually love doing dental business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design created for a family not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for a family with in the design.

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 residents in his city. The majority of 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 about 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 business or institution wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to summarize precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that explains itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a Belleville hair style studio 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 business logo which related an atmosphere of peace and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious direction of making merely a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo design which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is usually the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the main focus on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo style for a software application designer the style features as well as iconic Belleville component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and disk managing. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

The business 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 describe anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in many cases the meaning supporting a logo is just as important as how it brands the company it stands for.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly understood the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to market their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Belleville logo design using an image that garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Belleville company logo style has an area incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo idea wasn’t really designed for an Belleville regional farm it was in reality devised for a commodities broker, and this trademark was one of multiple that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was to generate an identity that projects self-assurance, effectiveness, and wealth.

 Belleville Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo style attribute for externally dealing with arrowhead and the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design that they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the liberty to investigate any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without realizing where the target is. Fortunately, in this particular case, I struck a bullseye with the first try.

Logo developed for using a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is reminiscent of a well-known Belleville sports group logo design.

I’ve crafted quite a lot of restaurant logo designs 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 favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking in which I worked closely with the proprietor to produce a business logo that worked extremely 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 over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
