POINTERS ON FINDING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design company presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can not reimburse the amount of time you commit which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be judged by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain real world samples chances are they won’t be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to echo your unique vision for your company. If a logo designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

We’ve done brand design work for mechanics, colleges, heart surgeons, party planners, bistros, retail stores, and just about every other kind of business you can envision.

American Made ★ Design

Something which really sets ImageCo apart from many of the design agencies that you may have encountered in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are hired to perform, we do in-house.

QUALITIES OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Bellwood organization realizes that they need a logo, however few start-ups entirely recognize the pivotal role their logo can play in their success, or the reason that one logo functions far better than another. A logo design has an immediate and sustaining effect on the financial success of a business, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Bellwood companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need scrutiny, they can be understood in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo design will be legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any sort of 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 item or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be lasting and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of denoting something to make sure that it could be distinguished, its foundation originates from the mark burned onto animals. These days a brand indicates practically anything with an objective, whether it be revenue or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are all from the same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition targeted at a specific audience, it’s goal is to produce a mental image that the target market can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When someone mentions the names Lamborghini or Mustang what we think of is their brand image, it’s an image that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of an automobile with 4 wheels that can move us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people want those brands. Brand image is why people identify with specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you reflect on the beginning of the majority of branding firms you’ll find that they are frequently rebranded marketing and advertising companies. When somebody states they are in advertising and marketing most people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that focuses on a kind of visual design which helps shape the public image of a business, a product or a company. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some identity designers also design sites and also user interfaces. The essential function of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the objective of affecting actions, end results as well as perceptions.

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Bellwood coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an older part of town and hoped to project a retro atmosphere without coming across as boring or low energy. I achieved both of these jobs by creating a trademark design that features 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 microscope slide and also bacteria made for Bellwood clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which studies the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare that deals with the clinical examination of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is really the only instance I call to mind where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Usually I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, but it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 enhancer to the brand that makes it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping eco-friendly frog developed for a household enjoyable facility in Bellwood.

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 projects which come my way, I’ve done 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 had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually reflect an atmosphere 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 give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy feel.

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

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Bellwood traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead convey emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo 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  Bellwood logo design but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Bellwood logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design jobs that I take on I truly savor and the Coastal Wireless project 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 concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A however my client, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get objective opinions on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their business logo understand how essential a logo design is for their company so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s portion of difficulties, but the largest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works 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 layout with bamboo in the background, design for Bellwood book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, but it is the most critical part of a printed book given that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the bookstore. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will ever have to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems like that in many occurrences 1 of the aspects consumers usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a spirit of air travel and it was definitely a winner.

 Bellwood logo style used for advertising and also a tag layout for Vintage Instance includes an archaic font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for musical instruments, that looked to be much older cases. For this business logo design I strove to come up with a logo that offered a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from another era.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Bellwood, design consist of an arc with lines converging through it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can be one of the most challenging logo jobs considering that it appears that each and every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dentists do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

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

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a concept that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, 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 designed for a family nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 personalities staggered in height to represent 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 illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his community. 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 overly literal pertaining 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 institution hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose 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 instantly comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a Bellwood hair design workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a business logo that conveyed a spirit of calmness and class for their new hair studio. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious direction of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a business logo which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is oftentimes the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Logo design for a software program programmer the style functions as well as renowned Bellwood element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, 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 acts as a bridge 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 number of miles from the 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. However, it represented something to the owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism behind a logo is equally as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a location to sell off their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Bellwood business logo design using an image that captures the attention of traffic and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this Bellwood company logo design has actually a field integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo idea wasn’t actually composed for an Bellwood regional farm it was really developed for a commodities broker, and this trademark was one of a handful of which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Good in that it offers a designer the opportunity to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without understanding where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the very first shot.

Logo design designed for the use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font style that is similar to a renowned Bellwood sporting activities team logo.

I have crafted loads of restaurant business 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 think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked closely with the owner to create a logo design that worked really 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 which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
