STRATEGIES ON PICKING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design agency presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can not refund the amount of time you commit which is eminently more valuable 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 design portfolio doesn’t feature real world examples odds are they will never be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s purpose is to echo your unique vision for your company. If a logo designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

ASPECTS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Clinton company understands that they need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the pivotal role their logo design will perform in their success, or the reason that one logo design works more effectively than another. A business logo has an immediate and sustaining effect on the financial success 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 will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Clinton businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  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 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 personal, and they are suitable for the item or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and the act of denoting something so that it can be recognized, its origin comes from the brand branded onto livestock. These days a brand signifies virtually anything with a motive, whether it be revenue or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the value of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are both from the very same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest aimed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to create an image that the target market will likely identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody says the names Lamborghini or Corvette 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 deliver us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals buy those products. Brand image is why individuals identify with most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the origin of a lot of branding firms you’ll find that they are quite often re-branded advertising agencies. When a person claims they are in marketing the majority of people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. However when someone claims “I’m in branding”… it simply sounds much more impressive, maybe it’s since many people do not recognize what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that describes the visual components of a product or business that influence understandings. This primarily includes the name, the logo, the product packaging, the colors utilized yet can also consist of sound, lights, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, felt or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a type of visual design which helps shape the image of a company, a product or a company. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some visual designers also build web sites and also software interfaces. The crucial function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of affecting actions, outcomes and also perceptions.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Clinton coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening in an old section of the town and hoped to visualize a nostalgic atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I achieved both of these tasks by developing a symbol design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and also bacteria made for Clinton medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which works with the clinical evaluation of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design 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 logo design.

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents very literally, however it does it in a fashion 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 enhancement to the name that makes it more interesting, more interest grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a family enjoyable center in Clinton.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun 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 usual of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dentists, and lawyers 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 name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually resonate an environment 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy mood.

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

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Clinton traveling digital 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 pretty niche field of photography and I think it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead reveal emotional experiences through the images they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they frequently tell entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something the same to this logo design by making use of the positive space in the design to say 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Clinton logo design but also to illustrate the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Clinton logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I really savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really 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 shape as a stroke in the letter A however the customer, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his contempt for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get honest judgements on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo design realize how important a logo design is for their business so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of difficulties, however the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Clinton book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped parcel of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most important part of a published book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the bookstore. Regarding a publisher, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever have to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals 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 design made for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with benches changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it looks like that in many instances 1 of the aspects people usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Clinton logo style made use of for advertising and marketing and also a label style for Vintage Case features an archaic font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for musical instruments, that seemed to be older cases. For this logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different era.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Clinton, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design projects because it appears that almost every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

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

I really love doing dentistry logo designs simply 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 stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and eventually I created a concept that does not have a solitary 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 concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in height to represent a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique 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 wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to illustrate how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout created for a Clinton hair layout 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 company logo that related an atmosphere of simplicity and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious route of crafting simply a stylized orchid but instead crafted a company logo that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is more often than not the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo style produced for a horse ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian show steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo crafted an original custom logo concept styled to illustrate the unique physical traits of the Arabian type of equines. By having an identifiable head shape and higher tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the very most quite easily recognizable horse types in the world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Coffee shop logo design a little dining establishment, style includes a customized script font which floats above a group of ornate lines as well as dots.

Logo layout for a software designer the style features as well as iconic Clinton element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk management. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it serves the enterprise it represents.

Advance logo design produced for a Clintonindoor designer, layout feature a series of red circles that intersect and also replace the letter O in the center of the logo style.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Clinton business logo layout featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a location to sell off their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Clinton logo design along with a graphic which grabs the attention of vehicles and sends an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Clinton company logo layout has actually an area integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo concept wasn’t actually produced for an Clinton regional farm it was really created for an investments broker, and this particular business logo was one of several which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was actually to generate a brand mark that projects trust, financial success, and luxury.

 Clinton Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo layout function for ostensibly encountering arrowhead and also the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design that they preferred, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the liberty to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without knowing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the very first shot.

Logo made for making use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font that is evocative a famous Clinton sporting activities group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted quite a lot of restaurant custom 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 think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked directly with the business owner to design a logo that worked very 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 neon sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
