STRATEGIES FOR SELECTING THE BEST 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 not refund the time you invest which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain real world samples odds are they will never be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s purpose is to echo your personal vision for your organization. If a logo designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they can get paid.

ASPECTS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Dolton business knows they require a logo, but few start ups fully comprehend the key role their logo design can perform in their financial success, or why one business logo works better than another. A logo design has an instant and sustaining impact on the growth of a business, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Dolton companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not need consideration, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which 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 item or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and the act of marking something so that it could be distinguished, its genesis comes from the brand branded onto livestock. Nowadays a brand signifies pretty much anything with an objective, regardless if it be earnings or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the value of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and identity design. When a person mentions the names Porsche or Mustang what we think of 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 move us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals want those products. Brand image is why people buy most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the origin of many branding companies you’ll discover that they are frequently re-branded advertising and marketing companies. When someone claims they are in advertising most individuals will likely have an idea about what they do. Yet when a person says “I’m in branding”… it just sounds much more attractive, maybe it’s due to the fact that most individuals do not fully understand what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that defines the visual elements of a product or agency that influence perceptions. This primarily includes the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors used however can additionally consist of audio, illumination, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, touched or heard belong to a brand identity.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Dolton coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening in an older part of the area and really wanted to visualize a retro vibe without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished each of the jobs via designing a trademark design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and bacteria designed for Dolton clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of medicine that deals with the clinical evaluation of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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 incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves fairly 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 illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that makes it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a family enjoyable center in Dolton.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental experts, and attorneys 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 some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy atmosphere.

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

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for Dolton travel digital 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 field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead communicate emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something comparable to this logo design by making use of 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Dolton logo design but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Dolton logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects 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 enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however my customer, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family did not share his contempt for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased point of views on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they really liked 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 choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo design recognize how important a logo is for their organization so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo design project has it’s share of obstacles, however the greatest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Dolton publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, however it really is the most essential part of a published book due to the fact that it is often the first thing a person views in the book store. With regard to a publisher, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever get to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of territory 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 changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it looks like that in many cases one of the traits consumers usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a good sense of flight and it was definitely a success.

 Dolton logo design used for advertising and marketing and also a tag layout for Vintage Case includes an antiquated font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be antique cases. For this business logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid retro feel to it and could easily be used for everything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different era.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Dolton, design include an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs because it seems that every single dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design but 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 care profession.

I really love doing dental care logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters startled in height 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 logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be overly literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to summarize precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a Dolton hair design workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo which projected a sense of simplicity and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which did not go the obvious course of designing just a stylized orchid but rather delivered a logo design that suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is in most cases the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the attention on the emotion that they wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Arabian steed logo layout developed for a steed ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian show steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo designed a unique brand design styled to display the unique physical traits of the Arabian kind of horses. With an unique head shape and high tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the highly easily identifiable equine breeds in the world.

Las Coffee shop logo layout a little dining establishment, style includes a modified manuscript typeface which hovers over a group of luxuriant lines as well as dots.

Logo design for a software application designer the style functions and legendary Dolton aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive operations. The kernel attaches the system 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 and computer hardware.

The business logo 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 explain anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the symbolism supporting a company logo is just as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

Progress logo design developed for a Doltoninterior developer, style feature a series of red circles that intersect as well as change the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Dolton business logo style featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly recognized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a location to sell their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Dolton business logo design with an image which pulls in the attention of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Dolton company logo design has an area included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo concept wasn’t actually created for an Dolton regional farm it was actually created for a commodities broker, and this company logo was one of several which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to create a image that projects assurance, financial success, and affluence.

 Dolton Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo style function for ostensibly encountering arrowhead and also the arrowheads imply that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the liberty to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without recognizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I hit a bullseye with the very first try.

Logo created for using a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font that is evocative a well-known Dolton sporting activities team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed dozens of restaurant logo designs and business 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 undertaking where I worked closely with the proprietor to design a logo which 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 illuminated signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
