POINTERS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they simply cannot refund the amount of time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be judged from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature actual samples chances are they will never be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to reflect your personal vision for your organization. If a logo designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

We have done brand design work for ranchers, universities, heart surgeons, party planners, coffee roasters, retail stores, and just about every other kind of business concern you can think of.

Our sign first technique guarantees that our logo designs are just as effective whether they are used in television commercials or web applications, they are consistently recognizable, understood, and remembered no matter of scale or function.

American Made ★ Design

Something which truly sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you probably have found in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are retained to do, we perform in-house. No matter the type of project we accept, logo, website, trade show booth, or retail sign, we do not, and never will job out our customer’s projects to organizations based outside the USA. When you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the cost of your project and dictates the terms of how my customers and I do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Independence company knows they require a logo, however few new business owners entirely grasp the essential role their company logo can make in their financial success, or why one business logo works more effectively than another. A logo design has a critical and sustaining effect on the financial success of a company, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Independence companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t need contemplation, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable business logo will stay legible and equally emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any device, in print, on product 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 organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the act of noting something so that it can be recognized, its genesis originates from the brand burned onto livestock. Today a brand represents practically anything with an objective, regardless of whether it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of defining the worth of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are both from the very same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition aimed at a target market, it’s goal is to create a mental image that the audience will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone says the names Lamborghini or Corvette what we consider 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 speed, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people purchase 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 we can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the history of most branding companies you’ll find that they are quite often re-branded marketing companies. When somebody states they are in advertising most people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps form the perception of a business, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral products such as cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some identity designers also build sites and also user interfaces. The essential duty of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and also a psychological tone with the objective of affecting activities, results and assumptions.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo style of a bicycle created for a Independence coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an older part of the town and wanted to cast a vintage atmosphere without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs by developing a logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and also bacteria made for Independence medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which investigates the root causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that deals with the laboratory examination of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Typically I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, but 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 enhancement to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more interest grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members fun facility in Independence.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental offices, and attorneys 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 business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much 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 made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and also a tree - made for Independence travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I think it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead convey emotional experiences by means of the photos they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all 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 significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which can’t be communicated with mere words. I tried to do something 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Independence logo design but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Independence logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design projects that I take on I honestly savor and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A however my customer, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man really hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral judgements on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they adored the concept 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo design comprehend how important a logo is for their organization so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo job has it’s allotment of obstacles, but the largest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, style for Independence book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, however it is the most necessary part of a published book considering that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the bookstore. With regard to a publisher, it’s the opportunity they will ever get to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it seems that in many instances one of the aspects consumers often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a sense of airline flight and it was definitely a winner.

 Independence logo design used for marketing and a tag style for Vintage Case includes an old font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be antique cases. For this brand design I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid retro feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a website to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another point in time.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Independence, layout consist of an arc with lines converging through it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

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

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless 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 dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design that doesn’t 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 design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a family members nonprofit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in height to stand for a family 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 brand identity design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a Independence hair design workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a company logo that projected a sense of contentment and class for their new hair salon. I created a concept that did not go the obvious path of crafting merely a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a company logo that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is in most cases the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the main focus on the perception that they wanted to project to their patrons.

Arabian equine logo style created for a steed cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian show equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo crafted a one-of-a-kind business logo concept tailored to exemplify the unique physical traits of the Arabian type of equines. By having a different head shape and higher tail posture, the Arabian is one of the highly quite easily identifiable equine types in the whole world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Coffee shop logo style a small restaurant, style contains a changed script typeface which hovers above a team of elaborate lines and dots.

Logo layout for a software application designer the design functions and also renowned Independence 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 hard drive managing. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge in between the software and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the symbolism behind a company logo is equally as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

Develop logo style developed for a Independenceindoor designer, style function a series of red circles that intersect and also change the letter O in the center of the logo style.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

Evolv Design is a Independence interior design company and this logo design is representational of the work that an interior designer does in.

Interior design is a multifaceted occupation that includes conceptual development, area planning, location inspections, programming, investigation, communicating with the stakeholders of a project, construction supervision, and implementation of the design.

A Independence 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 brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly realized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a place to sell their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Independence logo design design utilizing an image that garners the attention of vehicles and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this Independence company logo layout has actually an area integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem idea wasn’t really composed for an Independence regional farm it was actually devised for a products broker, and this particular company logo was one of several which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was really to generate a graphic that projected self-assurance, financial success, and affluence.

 Independence Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo layout feature for outwardly facing arrow and the arrowheads imply that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design they preferred, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the freedom to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without recognizing where the target is. Fortunately, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo design made for the use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font style that is similar to a popular Independence sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve 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 bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked closely with the owner to develop a logo that worked really well and did a fantastic 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 legible from over a block away.
