STRATEGIES ON FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be evaluated by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not feature actual examples odds are they won’t be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

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

La Porte LOGO DESIGN​

For over two decades ImageCo has been helping businesses of all kinds grow memorable brands. We’ve performed logo design work for farmers, schools, heart surgeons, wedding singers, coffee shops, retailers, and just about every other kind of business concern you can imagine. What makes us unique compared to our competitors is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we undertake every logo design project as if it will be employed as an electrical sign. Because of our sign first strategy our logo designs can, and have been utilized in everything from fashion labels to electrical signs. Our sign first technique ensures that our logos are equally successful whether they are used in TV commercials or web headers, they are consistently recognizable, understood, and remembered regardless of scale or application.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference that seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the design firms that you might possibly have stumbled upon online, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are hired to do, we perform in-house. Regardless of the type of design project we undertake, logo, web page, trade show banners, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will farm out our client’s projects to organizations based outside the United States. Whenever you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that marks up the cost of your project and dictates the conditions of how you and I conduct business.

ASPECTS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new La Porte business knows they probably need a logo, but few start ups entirely realize the vital role their logo design can make in their success, or why one logo performs far better than another. A business logo has a critical and long-term effect on the prosperity of a business, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help La Porte companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t need scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to store signs a scalable logo design will stay legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  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 personal, and they are suitable for the item or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of marking something so that it can be distinguished, its genesis comes from the mark branded onto livestock. These days a brand indicates virtually anything with a motive, regardless if it be earnings or political parties, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the value of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are all from the exact same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest targeted at a specific audience, it’s goal is to produce an image that the audience will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and identity design. When a person mentions the brand names Lamborghini or Mustang what we think about is their brand image, it’s an image 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 image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people purchase those products. Brand image is why individuals identify with specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the history of many branding agencies you’ll discover that they are quite often re-branded advertising companies. When somebody states they are in advertising and marketing many people will likely have an idea about what they do. But when a person claims “I’m in branding”… it simply seems more attractive, maybe it’s because many people don’t know what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and attractive.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that defines the visual elements of a product or agency that influence view points. This mostly includes the name, the logo, the product packaging, the colors used however can additionally include sound, lighting, texture, signage, just about anything that can be seen, touched or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that focuses on a kind of visual design which helps shape the perception of a firm, a product or a business. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and collateral material such as cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some visual designers also design websites and also software interfaces. The vital duty of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the objective of affecting actions, outcomes and perceptions.

select logos & signs

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a La Porte coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were opening up in an old section of the city and hoped to visualize a nostalgic atmosphere without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled both tasks by means of designing a business logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also germs made for La Porte clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which deals with the clinical examination of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the only instance I recollect in which I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents very literally, but it does it in a way that incorporates 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 enhancement to the name that makes it more captivating, more interest grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo style with a jumping green frog designed for a household fun center in La Porte.

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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a couple springs into the concept 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 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 much more lively high energy feeling.

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. 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 fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - designed for La Porte traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather reveal emotional journeys through the images they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they often tell entire stories through 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 attempted to do something similar to this logo 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  La Porte logo design but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 La Porte logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I honestly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly 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 shape as a stroke in the letter A but the customer, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his aversion for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get neutral assessments on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they adored 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 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 design.

Logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo understand how vital a logo is for their business so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo design project possesses it’s share of challenges, but the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, but it is the most crucial part of a published book since it is often the initial thing a person views in the book store. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the opportunity they will ever have to spotlight their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books.

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

Air LA logo designed for an airline company 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 go yet it looks like that in many cases one of the traits folks often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a success.

 La Porte logo style used for advertising and marketing as well as a label style for Vintage Situation features an antiquated font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be much older cases. For this business logo concept I sought to come up with a logo that offered a fluid vintage feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different point in time.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in La Porte, style include an arc with lines intersecting with it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can be one of the most difficult logo design jobs because it seems that every single dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dentists do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately 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 design 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 household not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals 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 discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to summarize how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a La Porte hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a company logo which conveyed a spirit of serenity and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious route of designing just a stylized orchid but rather created a logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is usually the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the main focus on the feeling that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian steed logo layout developed for an equine ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian program horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software program developer the style functions as well as iconic La Porte component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a connection 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 describe anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo is just as important as how it serves the enterprise it represents.

Develop logo style created for a La Porteindoor developer, design attribute a series of red circles that intersect and replace the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A La Porte business logo design including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies 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 realized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a location to sell their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their La Porte logo design using an illustration that seizes the attention of vehicles and sends 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 average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this La Porte company logo design has actually a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo idea wasn’t really composed for an La Porte area farm it was in reality devised for an investments broker, and this company was one of multiple which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was to develop a graphic that projects self-assurance, financial success, and opulence.

 La Porte Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo style function for outwardly dealing with arrowhead and the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design that they preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the liberty to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without recognizing where the target is. Luckily, in this particular case, I hit a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo design developed for the use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font style that is evocative a popular La Porte sporting activities group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have created quite a lot of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to produce a business logo which worked very 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 illuminated sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
