STRATEGIES FOR IDENTIFYING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design firm presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can’t reimburse the time you commit which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t contain real world samples chances are they will never be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to echo your unique vision for your company. If a designer isn’t focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how soon they will get paid.

ASPECTS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Mount Greenwood entrepreneur realizes that they need a logo, yet few start-ups fully realize the crucial role their business logo will perform in their financial success, or precisely why one business logo works more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and long term impact on the viability of a company, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Mount Greenwood companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  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 personal, and they are suitable for the product or organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and the process of marking something to make sure that it can be distinguished, its origin comes from the mark burned onto livestock. These days a brand symbolizes virtually anything with a motive, whether it be earnings or political parties, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are all from the same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition aimed at a target audience, it’s goal is to create an image that the audience can relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone mentions the brand 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 image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, beauty, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that is what makes people want those products. Brand image is why people get specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the origin of many branding firms you’ll find that they are often rebranded marketing and advertising agencies. When somebody states they are in advertising most individuals will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that specializes in a kind of visual design that helps form the perception of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and also collateral products such as business cards, stationery, as well as pamphlets. Some visual designers also build web sites and also software interfaces. The vital function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the goal of influencing activities, outcomes and assumptions.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo style of a bicycle developed for a Mount Greenwood coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening up in an older section of the city and really wanted to cast a nostalgic feel without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved each of the jobs by creating a business logo 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 style with a microscope slide as well as bacteria made for Mount Greenwood medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which studies the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare that deals with the laboratory evaluation of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the sole instance I remember where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents very 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 brand that makes it more interesting, more attention grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members enjoyable facility in Mount Greenwood.

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 types of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental experts, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better enthusiastic high energy feel.

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

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - made for Mount Greenwood travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo 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 don’t shoot places or things but rather reveal emotional journeys through the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something similar 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 hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Mount Greenwood logo design but also to show the depth of her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Mount Greenwood logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I seriously take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however the customer 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 character A but my client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his contempt for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced viewpoints on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they really liked the design 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 alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their business logo understand how essential a logo design is for their organization so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo job has it’s portion of challenges, but the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, style for Mount Greenwood book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin slice of real estate to work with, yet it is the most important part of a published book due to the fact that it is often the primary thing a person sees in the book store. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever have to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, 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 has two letter A's with benches modified to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems like that in many instances 1 of the traits consumers usually 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 certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a sense of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

 Mount Greenwood logo layout used for marketing and also a label style for Vintage Situation includes an old typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for music instruments, which looked to be vintage cases. For this business logo design I tried to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could easily be utilized for everything from a website to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different era.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Mount Greenwood, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects due to the fact that it seems that almost every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo 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 care logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design made for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters surprised in elevation 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 depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method 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 downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to summarize precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a Mount Greenwood hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo which related an atmosphere of contentment and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious direction of designing merely a stylized orchid but instead created a company logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is usually the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the main focus on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo style for a software program programmer the design features and renowned Mount Greenwood element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, 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 functions as a bridge in between the software and hardware.

The business 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 identify anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it represented something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the significance behind a logo design is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

Advance logo style developed for a Mount Greenwoodindoor designer, style feature a series of red circles that converge and replace the letter O in the middle of the logo design.

A Mount Greenwood business logo layout featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to market their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Mount Greenwood logo design design using an image which garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 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 farms, this Mount Greenwood company logo style has actually an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem design wasn’t really composed for an Mount Greenwood regional farm it was in reality devised for a commodities broker, and this creative logo was one of many that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was really to develop a image that projects confidence, financial success, and luxury.

 Mount Greenwood Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo design attribute for ostensibly dealing with arrow and the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design that they preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the opportunity to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the first try.

Logo design created for the use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font that is similar to a popular Mount Greenwood sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve crafted loads of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bake 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 directly with the proprietor to develop a logo which 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 lighted signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
