POINTERS ON DETERMINING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design agency presents a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can not reimburse the amount of time you invest which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a designer can only be judged by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not feature real life samples odds are they will never be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

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

We’ve undertaken branding work for builders, schools, heart surgeons, party planners, coffee roasters, retailers, and virtually every other kind of business you can think of. What makes us unique compared to our competitors is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we undertake every logo design project as if it will be used as an electric sign.

Our sign first technique ensures that our logo designs are equally effective whether they are used in TV commercials or web applications, they are consistently recognizable, understood, and remembered no matter of scale or purpose.

American Made ★ Design

The thing that seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you probably have stumbled upon in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are retained to do, we do in-house. No matter the kind of design project we undertake, brand identity design, website, trade show display, or retail sign, we do not, and never will job-out our customer’s projects to companies based outside the USA. When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the price of your design project and imposes the conditions of how my customers and I conduct business.

ASPECTS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Clinton organization realizes that they require a logo, however few start ups fully realize the vital role their company logo will perform in their financial success, or exactly why one business logo functions more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and lasting impact on the growth of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Clinton businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require contemplation, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and just as emotive at every dimension.
  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 personal, and they are suitable for the item or organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo needs to be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It is both a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the act of noting something to make sure that it could be recognized, its genesis originates from the mark burned onto livestock. These days a brand symbolizes basically anything with an objective, regardless if it be revenue or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are all from the exact same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition directed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to produce an image that the audience can relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody says the names Ferrari 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 carry us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals buy those products. Brand image is why people acquire specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the history of most branding agencies you’ll find that they are often re-branded marketing firms. When a person says they are in advertising many people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps form the public image of a business, a product or a business. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some visual designers also develop web sites and software interfaces. The necessary role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the goal of affecting actions, end results and also assumptions.

select logos & signs

Retro logo style of a bicycle developed for a Clinton coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually launching in an old section of the community and hoped to cast a nostalgic vibe without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks via designing a logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria developed for Clinton clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that deals with the laboratory examination of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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 right into a logo design.

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves very literally, yet 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 brand that makes it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog designed for a family fun 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 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 medical professionals, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which 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 integrate a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really resonate an atmosphere 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a more dynamic high energy impression.

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

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, 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 project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather reveal emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Clinton logo design but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I honestly savor and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client 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 but my customer, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial assessments on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo comprehend how essential a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of difficulties, however the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most important part of a published book considering that it is usually the initial thing a person views in the book store. Regarding a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity they will ever get to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it looks like that in many instances 1 of the aspects people tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest fledgling commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a spirit of air travel and it was certainly a success.

 Clinton logo layout utilized for advertising as well as a label style for Vintage Situation includes an old typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

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

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Clinton, layout consist of an arc with lines converging through it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most difficult logo jobs considering that it appears that every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design but 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 profession.

I actually love doing dental care logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and inevitably 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 implied in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Many 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 far too literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to illustrate precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a Clinton hair design studio including a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo that carried a feeling of calmness and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious route of creating simply a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo design 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 using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is oftentimes the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

Arabian equine logo design developed for a steed cattle ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian show steeds.

Logo style for a software program programmer the layout attributes and renowned Clinton element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

The business 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 identify anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism supporting a logo is just as important as how it serves the business it represents.

A Clinton business logo design featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock 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 previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Clinton business logo design with an illustration which grabs the interest of vehicles and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Clinton company logo design has a field integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand design wasn’t really created for an Clinton area farm it was actually devised for a commodities broker, and this particular company logo was one of several which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was really to make a image that projects trust, success, and luxury.

 Clinton Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo layout feature for externally dealing with arrow and 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 that they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the opportunity to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without realizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo design made for the use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript typeface that is similar to a popular Clinton sports team logo.

I have crafted quite a lot of restaurant logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked closely with the business owner to produce a business logo which worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
