STRATEGIES ON PICKING THE BEST 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 bear in mind that they can’t refund the amount of time you commit which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but ultimately a designer can only be judged by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature real life examples odds are they won’t be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

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

When you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a go-between that increases the price of your design project and dictates the conditions of how you and I do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Lake Charles business understands that they require a logo, yet few start ups thoroughly comprehend the crucial role their business logo can make in their becoming successful, or the reason that one business logo works better than another. A logo design has an immediate and long term influence on the prosperity of a business, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Lake Charles companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require consideration, they can be grasped in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to posters a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo needs to be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of marking something to ensure that it can be recognized, its foundation originates from the brand branded onto livestock. These days a brand represents pretty much anything with an objective, regardless of whether it be revenue or politics, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive cousin, they are each from the same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition directed at a target market, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the audience can relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and identity design. When a person mentions the names Lamborghini or Mustang what we think of is their brand image, it’s a picture 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 freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals buy those products. Brand image is why individuals identify with specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the beginning of most branding agencies you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded marketing companies. When a person says they are in advertising and marketing most people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. But when a person claims “I am in branding”… it just seems more impressive, maybe it’s because many people don’t fully understand what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and perhaps even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that explains the visual components of a product or agency that influence understandings. This mostly consists of the name, the logo, the product packaging, the different colors used yet can additionally consist of audio, illumination, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, touched or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps shape the image of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some identity designers also design websites and also user interfaces. The vital duty of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of affecting activities, outcomes as well as assumptions.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Lake Charles coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were launching in an old section of the city and wanted to cast a nostalgic vibe without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished each of the jobs via designing a logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Lake Charles medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that researches the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that works with the clinical examination of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the only instance I recall where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents quite literally, yet it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 name that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and more memorable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog developed for a family members fun facility in Lake Charles.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 norm of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not really reflect an atmosphere 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a more dynamic high energy atmosphere.

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

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Lake Charles 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead communicate emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes convey entire 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 revealed with mere words. I made an effort 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Lake Charles logo but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Lake Charles logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design jobs that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A but the client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his contempt for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage them to share it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get honest point of views on the merit of a design. 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo comprehend how vital a logo is for their organization so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo design project possesses it’s portion of challenges, however the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, layout for Lake Charles publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, but it really is the most crucial part of a published book given that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person views in the book shop. With respect to a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will ever get to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, picturesque 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 design has two letter A's with the bars modified to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it seems like that in many instances 1 of the things people often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a feeling of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

 Lake Charles logo design made use of for advertising and marketing and also a tag style for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for musical instruments, that seemed to be older cases. For this brand concept I sought to come up with a logo that provided a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be used for anything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another generation.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Lake Charles, design include an arc with lines converging with it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects because it seems that each and every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless 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 profession.

I really enjoy doing dental care business logos simply 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 provided such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout that does not have a solitary 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 client the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a family not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities startled in height to stand for a family 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 representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to 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 hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to summarize precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal 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 that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo style created for a Lake Charles hair style studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo that carried an atmosphere of ease and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious route of designing simply a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo design which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is more often than not the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the main focus on the feeling that they wanted to transmit to their customers.

Arabian horse logo layout produced for a horse ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian program equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo created an original logo design styled to display the unique physical traits of the Arabian pedigree of equines. With an unique head form and higher tail posture, the Arabian is one of the highly easily identifiable equine types in the entire world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Coffee shop logo layout a tiny restaurant, design contains a modified script font style which floats over a group of ornate lines as well as dots.

Logo style for a software program designer the layout features as well as renowned Lake Charles element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive operations. The kernel connects 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 program and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it represented something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the significance behind a company logo is just as important as how it brands the business it stands for.

Evolve logo style developed for a Lake Charlesinterior designer, style function a collection of red circles that converge and change the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

A Lake Charles business logo layout featuring an angler in the middle 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 more than 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly understood the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a location to sell off their used products to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Lake Charles logo design with an illustration which pulls in the interest of vehicles and sends an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Lake Charles company logo style has actually a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo design wasn’t actually composed for an Lake Charles regional farm it was actually developed for a products broker, and this particular brand was one of a handful of which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was actually to create a brand mark that projected self-confidence, effectiveness, and prosperity.

 Lake Charles Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo layout attribute for outwardly dealing with arrowhead and also the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design that they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the freedom to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo created for using an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is similar to a famous Lake Charles sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked directly with the business owner to produce a business logo which worked very 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 sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
