TIPS ON IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but in the end a design firm can only be judged by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not feature real life samples chances are they will never be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to mirror your personal vision for your business. If a designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they can get paid.

When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the cost of your project and imposes the terms of how we do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Bettendorf business knows they need a logo, however few start ups fully grasp the key role their logo design will play in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo works more effectively than another. A logo has a critical and long term impact on the prosperity of a business, select the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Bettendorf companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not need deliberation, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 item or business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be lasting and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of denoting something to make sure that it can be identified, its origin comes from the brand branded onto livestock. Nowadays a brand represents virtually anything with an objective, whether it be earnings or politics, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

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

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and identity design. When somebody states the names Porsche or Mustang what we think of 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 transport us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, 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 we can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the origin of many branding agencies you’ll find that they are frequently rebranded advertising firms. When somebody states they are in advertising and marketing the majority of people will likely have an idea about what they do. But when a person states “I’m in branding”… it just sounds more attractive, probably it’s because lots of people don’t understand what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and maybe even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual components of a product or company that influence perceptions. This primarily consists of the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the colors used however can also consist of sound, lights, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, felt or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that concentrates on a type of visual design which helps form the perception of a business, a product or a company. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, as well as collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and brochures. Some visual designers also build sites and user interfaces. The crucial function of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the objective of affecting activities, end results and also assumptions.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a Bettendorf coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually launching in an older part of the area and wanted to visualize a nostalgic tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs by means of developing a company logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and germs created for Bettendorf medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which deals with the clinical examination of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is really the sole instance I recall in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Normally I try 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 fashion that integrates 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 enhancer to the brand that helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and even more memorable.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog created for a household fun center in Bettendorf.

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 kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more enthusiastic high energy feel.

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

digital photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Bettendorf 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 pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead communicate emotional experiences through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of 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 great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something the same 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 hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Bettendorf logo design but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Bettendorf logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design projects that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client 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 letter A however the customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his hatred for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they adored the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to insert every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo comprehend how vital a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo project has it’s portion of hurdles, however the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works 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 style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Bettendorf publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, however it is the most important part of a published book because it is usually the initial thing a person views in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will likely ever have to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it looks like that in many occurrences 1 of the traits individuals usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a spirit of airline flight and it was certainly a winner.

 Bettendorf logo layout used for marketing as well as a label design for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be older cases. For this logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that had a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could be used for everything from a website to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another era.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Bettendorf, layout consist of an arc with lines converging through it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs because it seems that every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth related 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 profession.

I really enjoy doing dental business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered 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 concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a household nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. 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 overly literal with regards to 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 institution wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed 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 tries to use the logo to explain how people should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a Bettendorf hair design studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo that conveyed an atmosphere of calmness and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious direction of making merely a stylized orchid but alternatively created a business logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is usually the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the main focus on the perception that they wanted to transmit to their customers.

Logo style for a software designer the layout features and legendary Bettendorf element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and disk operations. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection in between the software and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of 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 represented something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the symbolism supporting a logo is just as important as how it serves the business it represents.

A Bettendorf business logo style 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 more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a spot to market their secondhand products to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Bettendorf logo design with a graphic which grabs the interest of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph 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 relaxed habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Bettendorf company logo layout has actually a field integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t actually developed for an Bettendorf area farm it was really developed for an investments broker, and this creative logo was one of many that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was to create a graphic that projects confidence, financial success, and wealth.

 Bettendorf Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo style function for outwardly facing arrowhead as well as the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design that they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the opportunity to delve into any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the first go.

Logo design designed for using an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script typeface that is evocative a renowned Bettendorf sporting activities group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed quite a lot of restaurant logos 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 think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked closely with the owner to design a logo which worked really 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 that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
