POINTERS FOR IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design firm presents a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can not reimburse the time you invest which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature real world samples chances are they won’t be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s goal is to mirror your unique vision for your company. If a designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they will get paid.

ASPECTS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Every new Nicholasville business knows they require a logo, however few start ups thoroughly realize the essential role their organization’s logo can make in their financial success, or precisely why one logo works better than another. A company logo has an immediate and long-term effect on the viability of a company, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Nicholasville companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require consideration, they can be understood in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will stay legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any type of 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 product or business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of noting something so that it could be distinguished, its origin comes from the brand branded onto animals. Today a brand symbolizes basically anything with a motive, regardless of whether it be profit or politics, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are all from the very 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 contest targeted at a target market, it’s objective is to produce an image that the audience will relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When someone 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 an automobile with 4 wheels that can transport us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals want those products. Brand image is why people buy specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Agencies – If you reflect on the history of a lot of branding agencies you’ll discover that they are frequently rebranded marketing and advertising agencies. When someone states they are in advertising and marketing many people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. But when somebody states “I’m in branding”… it simply sounds much more impressive, perhaps it’s because most individuals don’t understand what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and maybe even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual aspects of a product or agency that affect understandings. This primarily includes the name, the logo, the product packaging, the different colors utilized however can additionally consist of sound, lighting, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, touched or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that focuses on a type of visual design that helps form the image of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and collateral material such as cards, stationery, as well as sales brochures. Some identity designers also develop websites and software interfaces. The necessary function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of influencing actions, end results as well as understandings.

Retro logo style of a bike created for a Nicholasville coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and cafe were opening up in an old section of town and hoped to cast an old-fashioned feel without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I achieved both jobs via designing a company logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria designed for Nicholasville medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which deals with the clinical assessment of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is 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 overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, yet it does it in a way that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that helps make it more appealing, more focus grabbing and much more memorable.

logo layout with a jumping environment-friendly frog created for a family members enjoyable facility in Nicholasville.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has 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 does not actually 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 better dynamic high energy impression.

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

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - made for Nicholasville travel professional 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead reveal emotional journeys by means of the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through 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 resonance that can’t be communicated with just words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo by employing 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Nicholasville logo but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I really take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A however the customer, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his contempt for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial point of views on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole 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 preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo design understand how essential a logo is for their company so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s allotment of challenges, but the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, design for Nicholasville book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, yet it is the most critical part of a published book given that it is in most cases the very first thing a person sees in the bookstore. Concerning a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will ever get to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems like that in many cases 1 of the traits folks often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a spirit of flight and it was surely a victory.

 Nicholasville logo design used for advertising and marketing and a label design for Vintage Case includes an antiquated font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in new cases for musical instruments, that appeared to be much older cases. For this business logo design I strove to come up with a logo that had a fluid old style feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different era.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Nicholasville, style include an arc with lines converging through it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can be one of the most challenging logo jobs because it seems that almost every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding 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 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 dentistry or a certain area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action 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 implied in the design. When I turned this concept over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a household not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to explain how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that describes itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo style produced for a Nicholasville hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo that conveyed a feeling of contentment and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious path of creating just a stylized orchid but instead crafted a business logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is more often than not the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian equine logo style produced for a steed ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo crafted a one-of-a-kind logotype concept tailored to illustrate the unique physical traits of the Arabian type of horses. By having a different head shape and high tail posture, the Arabian is one of the highly easily identifiable horse types in the world.

Logo design for a software application designer the design features and also renowned Nicholasville element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts 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 situated a couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it symbolized something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance behind a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the business it stands for.

Progress logo layout developed for a Nicholasvilleindoor designer, style function a collection of red circles that converge as well as change the letter O in the center of the logo style.

A Nicholasville business logo style featuring a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly understood the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a spot to sell their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Nicholasville logo design using an image which garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Nicholasville company logo layout has an area incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo idea wasn’t really produced for an Nicholasville regional farm it was really devised for a products broker, and this brand was one of several which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was actually to create a graphic that projected esteem, success, and affluence.

 Nicholasville Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo layout function for externally dealing with arrowhead and the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design they preferred, 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 challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where the target is. Fortunately, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo design created for using an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is evocative a well-known Nicholasville sports group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed dozens 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 bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to develop a business logo which worked extremely 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 neon sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
