POINTERS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design company presents a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can’t refund the time you invest which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain real world samples odds are they will not be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

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

Our sign first method insures that our logo designs are equally effective whether they are used in television commercials or website apps, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and remembered irrespective of size or purpose.

American Made ★ Design

Something which seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design firms that you might possibly have found online, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are hired to perform, we perform in-house. Regardless of the kind of project we accept, logo, website design, trade show booth, or electric sign, we do not, and never will farm-out our client’s projects to companies located outside the United States. Whenever you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the cost of your project and dictates the terms of how my customers and I conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Hillcrest Heights organization understands that they require a logo, but few start-ups entirely comprehend the key role their logo can make in their success, or exactly why one business logo performs far better than another. A logo has an instant and lasting influence on the success of a company, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Hillcrest Heights businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require contemplation, they can be understood in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable business logo will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the product or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark as well as the act of denoting something so that it could be distinguished, its genesis originates from the brand branded onto animals. These days a brand symbolizes basically anything with an intention, regardless if it be revenue or politics, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are each from the same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest aimed at a specific audience, it’s goal is to develop an image that the audience can relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When a person states the names Ferrari or Corvette what we consider is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car with 4 wheels that can deliver us from point A to point B, the 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 brands. 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 Companies – If you look back at the origin of the majority of branding agencies you’ll find that they are quite often re-branded advertising and marketing firms. When a person says they are in marketing the majority of people will likely have an idea about what they do. But when somebody claims “I’m in branding”… it simply sounds much more attractive, possibly it’s due to the fact that the majority of people do not fully understand what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and kind of sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that defines the visual aspects of a product or business that affect perceptions. This mainly consists of the name, the logo, the product packaging, the colors utilized however can also consist of sound, lighting, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, felt or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a kind of visual design that helps shape the image of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some identity designers also design websites and software interfaces. The important duty of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the goal of influencing actions, results and understandings.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Hillcrest Heights coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually launching in an old section of town and hoped to visualize an old-fashioned vibe without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished the two tasks by creating a business logo design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and bacteria made for Hillcrest Heights medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which deals with the laboratory assessment of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Usually I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents quite 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 enhancement to the name that helps make it more appealing, more attention grabbing and more memorable.

logo design with a jumping green frog designed for a family members fun facility in Hillcrest Heights.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the usual of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a more dynamic 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. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Hillcrest Heights traveling digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather communicate emotional experiences through the images they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they often convey entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something similar 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Hillcrest Heights logo design but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Hillcrest Heights logo style with a seagull made use of 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 really enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly 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 shape as a stroke in the letter A but my client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his aversion for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to share it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced assessments on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they really liked the design 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 alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo design comprehend how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, however the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Hillcrest Heights book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most necessary part of a published book given that it is often the first thing a person views in the book shop. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever have to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it looks like that in many cases one of the aspects individuals tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle airline situated 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 imparting a sense of flight and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 Hillcrest Heights logo layout made use of for advertising and marketing and a tag layout for Vintage Instance features an old font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for musical instruments, that looked to be antique cases. For this business logo concept I sought to come up with a logo that offered a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could easily be used for everything from a website to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another point in time.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Hillcrest Heights, layout include an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs because it appears that every single dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s company 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 profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and subsequently 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 customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the style.

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 devotion that William McNally had for the families 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 very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed 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 attempts to use the logo design to explain exactly how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo design developed for a Hillcrest Heights hair layout workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo which related a spirit of calmness and connection for their new hair studio. I created a concept which did not go the obvious route of designing simply a stylized orchid but rather crafted a company logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is generally the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the main focus on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Arabian horse logo design developed for a horse cattle ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian show equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo layout for a software application programmer the style functions and also iconic Hillcrest Heights aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it meant something to the owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it serves the enterprise it represents.

A Hillcrest Heights business logo style including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly knew the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a place to sell off their used goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Hillcrest Heights logo design design using 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 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Hillcrest Heights company logo style has actually a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo idea wasn’t really created for an Hillcrest Heights area farm it was really devised for a commodities broker, and this particular trademark was one of many which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was to design a graphic that projected esteem, financial success, and prosperity.

 Hillcrest Heights Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo layout attribute for outwardly facing arrow and the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design they preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the liberty to investigate any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without realizing where the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the first try.

Logo design developed for making use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font that is evocative a well-known Hillcrest Heights sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads 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 bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked closely with the owner to design a logo design that 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 which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
