POINTERS FOR PICKING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design firm offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they simply cannot refund the amount of time you invest which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature real world examples odds are they won’t be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to mirror your unique vision for your business. If a designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they will get paid.

Something which seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you may have found in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every project we are enlisted to perform, we do ourselves.

QUALITIES OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Every new Palos Hills entrepreneur understands that they probably need a logo, however few new business owners entirely grasp the crucial role their logo design can make in their financial success, or the reason that one business logo functions far better than another. A company logo has an instant and lasting 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 wrong one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Palos Hills companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need consideration, they can be understood in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which 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 right, and they are suitable for the item or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and the act of denoting something so that it could be recognized, its genesis comes from the brand burned onto livestock. Nowadays a brand represents pretty much anything with an objective, whether it be earnings or politics, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the value of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are all from the exact same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition directed at a target market, it’s objective is to create an 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 states the brand names Porsche or Mustang 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 vehicle with 4 wheels that can carry 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 that is what makes people buy those products. Brand image is why individuals acquire specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the origin of many branding firms you’ll find that they are quite often re-branded advertising and marketing companies. When somebody claims they are in marketing the majority of people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when somebody states “I am in branding”… it just sounds more attractive, probably it’s due to the fact that lots of people do not know what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual aspects of a product or business that affect view points. This mainly includes the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors utilized but can additionally include audio, illumination, texture, signs, just about 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 focuses on a type of visual design that helps shape the perception of a business, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, packaging, as well as collateral material such as cards, stationery, and brochures. Some identity designers also build websites and user interfaces. The vital role of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of influencing activities, outcomes and also assumptions.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Palos Hills coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening in an older section of town and really wanted to visualize a retro feel without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished both tasks by means of designing a trademark concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide as well as bacteria developed for Palos Hills clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of medicine which works with the clinical evaluation of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Normally I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves quite literally, but 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 attention grabbing and more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog created for a family members enjoyable facility in Palos Hills.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really resonate 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, 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 concept and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for marketing and advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Palos Hills travel digital 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 area due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead reveal emotional journeys through the photos they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories through 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 fullness that can’t be conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Palos Hills logo design but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Palos Hills logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design jobs that I take on I seriously savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly 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 client, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members did not share his aversion for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial point of views on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they really loved the concept 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo design understand how essential a logo design is for their organization so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo design job possesses it’s portion of difficulties, 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 business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for Palos Hills publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most critical part of a printed book since it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the book shop. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will ever get to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, colorful and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo developed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with benches modified to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems like that in many instances 1 of the aspects consumers often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a good sense of flight and it was certainly a success.

 Palos Hills logo style made use of for marketing as well as a label style for Vintage Instance features an old font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be antique cases. For this business logo design I sought to come up with a logo that had a fluid old style feel to it and could easily be used for everything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different era.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Palos Hills, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo design jobs because it appears that every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

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

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a layout that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities startled in elevation to represent a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to explain exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that describes itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a Palos Hills hair style studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design that communicated a feeling of tranquility and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious path of designing simply a stylized orchid but instead delivered a business logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is in most cases the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the focus on the perception that they really wanted to project to their clients.

Arabian equine logo style developed for a steed ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo designed a distinct custom logo design styled to symbolize the unique physical traits of the Arabian type of equines. By having an identifiable head shape and high tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the very most easily recognizable horse breeds in the world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Coffee shop logo layout a small dining establishment, design includes a changed manuscript typeface which hovers above a group of elaborate lines and dots.

Logo design for a software developer the style attributes and legendary Palos Hills component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk management. 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 connection in between the software program 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 point out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it represented something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

Progress logo layout created for a Palos Hillsindoor designer, layout feature a series of red circles that converge and replace the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Palos Hills business logo style including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly recognized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a location to sell their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Palos Hills logo design using an illustration that garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this Palos Hills company logo style has a field included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem idea wasn’t actually produced for an Palos Hills regional farm it was in reality developed for a commodities broker, and this business logo was one of a handful of that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to generate a graphic that projected self-confidence, financial success, and prosperity.

 Palos Hills Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo layout attribute for ostensibly dealing with arrow and also the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design they desired, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the freedom to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of recognizing where the target is. Fortunately, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo made for the use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript typeface that is reminiscent of a renowned Palos Hills sports team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant logo designs and establishment 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 great project in which I worked directly with the proprietor to design 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 lighted signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
