STRATEGIES FOR PICKING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature real life samples odds are they won’t be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be understood and remembered, and it’s goal is to echo 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 quickly they can get paid.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Gretna entrepreneur knows they need a logo, however few start ups thoroughly understand the pivotal role their company logo will perform in their financial success, or the reason that one logo performs more effectively than another. A logo has an instant and long-term effect on the viability 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 an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Gretna businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need consideration, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to store signs a scalable business logo will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any sort 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 business logo needs to be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is both a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the process of noting something to ensure that it can be recognized, its genesis originates from the mark branded onto livestock. These days a brand indicates basically anything with an objective, regardless if it be earnings or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are each from the exact same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition targeted at a target audience, it’s goal is to develop a mental image that the target market will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody mentions the brand names Porsche 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 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 people get specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

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

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual components of a product or agency that affect understandings. This primarily consists of the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the different colors utilized however can likewise include sound, lights, texture, signs, just about anything that can be seen, felt or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that focuses on a type of visual design which helps shape the perception of a business, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral products such as cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some identity designers also design websites and user interfaces. The crucial duty of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and an emotional tone with the objective of affecting activities, results and also understandings.

select logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a Gretna coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were opening up in an old section of town and really wanted to cast a vintage atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished the two jobs by means of developing a logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria developed for Gretna clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that deals with the laboratory examination of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the sole instance I remember where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, however it does it in a way 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 interesting, more attention grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog created for a family members enjoyable center in Gretna.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more dynamic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I designed was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Gretna traveling 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead convey emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently tell 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 fullness that can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Gretna logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Gretna logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however the client, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his hatred for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial opinions on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their business logo realize how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo design job has it’s share of hurdles, but the largest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most vital part of a published book because it is usually the very first thing a person sees in the book store. For a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will ever get to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it seems that in many instances 1 of the items consumers usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a good sense of air travel and it was surely a success.

 Gretna logo style utilized for marketing and also a label design for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, that seemed to be older cases. For this brand design I strove to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be used for everything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different point in time.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Gretna, design include an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs considering that it appears that every single dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

I actually love doing dentistry business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain 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 does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. 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 design created for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in height to represent a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to summarize exactly how people ought to 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 been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that describes itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo style created for a Gretna hair layout 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 desired a business logo which related a spirit of peace and connection for their new hair salon. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious course of making just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a company logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is more often than not the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the emphasis on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo layout developed for an equine cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian show equines.

Logo style for a software program designer the style attributes as well as renowned Gretna component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a bridge in between the software program and hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the business it stands for.

A Gretna business logo style including an angler in the center of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

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 owners of On the Fly recognized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a spot to sell their secondhand products to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Gretna logo design design with an image which garners the attention of vehicles and projects an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Gretna company logo style has an area integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem design wasn’t actually developed for an Gretna area farm it was in reality developed for a products broker, and this logo was one of multiple that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to design a brand mark that projected self-confidence, effectiveness, and affluence.

 Gretna Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo design feature for ostensibly encountering arrowhead and also the arrowheads imply that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design they wanted, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the liberty to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where the target is. Luckily, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo design designed for the use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font style that is similar to a popular Gretna sports team logo.

I have designed quite a lot of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking in which I worked closely with the proprietor to design a business logo that worked really 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 lighted sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
