POINTERS FOR FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design company presents a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they simply cannot reimburse the amount of time you invest which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be determined from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t feature real life samples chances are they won’t be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to mirror your unique vision for your company. If a logo designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Maywood company realizes that they probably need a logo, yet few new business owners entirely recognize the essential role their business logo can make in their becoming successful, or the reason that one logo design functions more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and long term effect on the growth of a company, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Maywood businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require deliberation, they can be understood in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the product or business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the act of marking something so that it can be identified, its origin originates from the brand branded onto animals. These days a brand indicates virtually anything with an objective, regardless if it be profit or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the value of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are each from the exact same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest aimed at a specific audience, it’s goal is to create a mental image that the target market can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When someone mentions the brand names Lamborghini or Corvette what we consider is their brand image, it’s an image that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car with 4 wheels that can transport us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes people buy those products. Brand image is why individuals buy most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the beginning of the majority of branding companies you’ll discover that they are frequently re-branded marketing and advertising agencies. When a person claims they are in marketing most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when somebody says “I’m in branding”… it simply seems more attractive, possibly it’s since the majority of people don’t understand what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and kind of attractive.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual aspects of a product or company that influence view points. This primarily includes the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the colors used yet can also consist of sound, lights, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, touched 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 public image of a business, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and also pamphlets. Some visual designers also build websites as well as user interfaces. The vital function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of affecting activities, end results and assumptions.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo layout of a bike developed for a Maywood coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening up in an older part of the town and hoped to cast an old-fashioned vibe without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled the two tasks via designing a trademark concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and also bacteria created for Maywood medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that works with the laboratory examination of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the sole instance I call to mind where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite literally, yet it does it in a way 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 name that makes it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping environment-friendly frog created for a family members enjoyable center in Maywood.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun 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 usual of the types of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dentists, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really reflect 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a more enthusiastic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild 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 transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Maywood traveling professional 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 think it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead communicate emotional journeys through the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they often tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with just words. I attempted to do something comparable to this logo design by using the positive space in the design to suggest 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  Maywood logo design but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Maywood logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, but 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 character A however the customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his scorn for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage them to share it with friends and family as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral point of views on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they really loved 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 proceeded with the original concept.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo design comprehend how essential a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo project possesses it’s allotment of difficulties, but the biggest 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 identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Maywood publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, however it is the most necessary part of a printed book since it is in most cases the very first thing a person sees in the book store. With regard to a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity they will likely ever get to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase 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 made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with benches modified to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems that in many instances 1 of the items individuals often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom 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.

 Maywood logo layout made use of for advertising and marketing and a label layout for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for music instruments, which looked to be vintage cases. For this brand concept I tried to come up with a logo that had a fluid old style feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different generation.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Maywood, design include an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo jobs considering that it seems that each and 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 careers when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept 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 concept. When I turned this particular design over to the client the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities staggered in elevation 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 brand identity design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be far too 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 company or institution wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to summarize precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo design developed for a Maywood hair style workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo which conveyed a spirit of peace and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept which did not go the obvious path of making simply a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo that suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is usually the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the importance on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Arabian steed logo style produced for a steed ranch that specializes in reproducing Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo developed an original company logo design customized to epitomize the unique physical traits of the Arabian breed of horses. With a different head shape and higher tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the highly immediately recognizable equine lineages in the whole world.

Logo design for a software designer the layout features and legendary Maywood 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). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive operations. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge in between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the symbolism supporting a business logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

A Maywood business logo layout featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands 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 recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a location to sell off their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Maywood logo design design along with an image which garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Maywood company logo layout has an area included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem idea wasn’t actually produced for an Maywood regional farm it was in reality developed for a products broker, and this particular business logo was one of many that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to create a graphic that projected esteem, effectiveness, and wealth.

 Maywood Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo style attribute for outwardly encountering arrowhead as well as the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the freedom to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the first try.

Logo designed for using a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is similar to a well-known Maywood sports group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project where I worked closely with the business owner to develop a logo that worked extremely well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
