TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo 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 time you invest which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design firm can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not feature actual examples odds are they will never be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be understood and remembered, and it’s goal is to reflect your personal vision for your company. If a logo designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they will get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Homer Glen entrepreneur realizes that they require a logo, but few start-ups fully understand the pivotal role their logo design will play in their success, or why one business logo functions far better than another. A business logo has an instant and sustaining impact on the viability of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Homer Glen companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to billboards a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function 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 business logo needs to be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of noting something so that it could be recognized, its foundation comes from the brand branded onto animals. Today a brand represents virtually anything with an intention, whether it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive sister, they are all from the same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest directed at a target market, it’s objective is to create a mental image that the audience will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and identity design. When somebody states the names Ferrari 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 a car with 4 wheels that can deliver 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 sexy . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals want those products. Brand image is why individuals purchase specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the beginning of a lot of branding agencies you’ll discover that they are often re-branded advertising firms. When someone states they are in marketing most individuals will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that focuses on a kind of visual design that helps shape the image of a firm, a product or a business. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral products such as business cards, stationery, as well as sales brochures. Some visual designers also develop web sites and software interfaces. The vital role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the goal of affecting actions, end results and also understandings.

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Homer Glen coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were launching in an older part of town and wished to project a vintage atmosphere without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished the two jobs by means of designing a trademark concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide as well as bacteria created for Homer Glen clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that works with the clinical assessment of specimens of 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 recollect in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this 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 explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that helps make it more interesting, more focus grabbing and much more memorable.

logo style with a jumping green frog created for a household fun center in Homer Glen.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool 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 kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features 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 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 title itself to give the logo a much more dynamic high energy impression.

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

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Homer Glen 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather reveal emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they often share entire stories using 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 often have an emotional resonance which can’t be communicated with mere words. I made an effort to do something very similar to this logo design by using 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Homer Glen logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Homer Glen logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design jobs that I take on I honestly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really 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 shape as a stroke in the character A however my customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his hatred for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral judgements on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they loved 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their logo design recognize how essential a logo is for their company so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo job has it’s portion of challenges, but the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Homer Glen book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most necessary part of a published book given that it is usually the very first thing a person sees in the book shop. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the opportunity they will ever get to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart nevertheless it seems that in many instances 1 of the items folks often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest fledgling commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Homer Glen logo layout used for advertising and marketing as well as a label style for Vintage Case includes an archaic typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for musical instruments, which appeared to be vintage cases.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Homer Glen, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain 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 but 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 industry.

I really enjoy doing dentistry logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a concept that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities staggered in height to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method 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 understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to describe specifically how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that explains itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo layout created for a Homer Glen hair layout workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design which communicated a feeling of simplicity and class for their new hair studio. I created a design which did not go the obvious course of creating simply a stylized orchid but rather designed a business logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is oftentimes the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the importance on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and hard drive management. The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a bridge in between the software program and hardware.

The logo 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 point out 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 business and in many cases the meaning behind a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a place to sell off their secondhand equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Homer Glen business logo design using a graphic that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Homer Glen company logo layout has an area incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand concept wasn’t really designed for an Homer Glen regional farm it was actually created for a products broker, and this business logo was one of many which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was really to generate a graphic that projected esteem, financial success, and luxury.

Good in that it grants a designer the liberty to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without understanding where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the first shot.

I have crafted quite a lot of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking in which I worked directly with the business owner to develop a business logo that worked extremely 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 sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
