POINTERS FOR DETERMINING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to keep 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 from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not feature real world examples odds are they will never be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to reflect your unique vision for your company. If a designer isn’t focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they will get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Hyattsville entrepreneur realizes that they need a logo, yet few start ups fully grasp the essential role their company logo can perform in their success, or precisely why one logo design works better than another. A logo design has an immediate and long-term impact on the viability of a company, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Hyattsville businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will be legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any device, in print, on 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 company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the process of marking something to ensure that it can be distinguished, its origin comes from the mark branded onto animals. Today a brand indicates basically anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be revenue or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are both from the exact same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition aimed at a target market, it’s goal is to develop a mental image that the target market can relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody states the names Lamborghini or Mustang what we consider is their brand image, it’s an image 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 image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes people want those brands. Brand image is why individuals purchase specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the history of a lot of branding firms you’ll discover that they are frequently re-branded marketing agencies. When a person claims they are in advertising many people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when somebody states “I’m in branding”… it simply seems much more attractive, maybe it’s due to the fact that most individuals do not know what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and perhaps even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual components of a product or company that affect understandings. This mainly consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors utilized however can also include audio, lighting, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, felt or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that focuses on a kind of visual design that helps form the perception of a company, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, as well as collateral material such as cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some identity designers also design websites and also software interfaces. The vital role of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and a psychological tone with the goal of influencing actions, outcomes and also perceptions.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were opening up in an old part of the community and wished to project a retro vibe without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both tasks via designing a custom logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs developed for Hyattsville clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which works with the clinical evaluation of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Normally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that makes it more appealing, more interest grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog designed for a family members enjoyable facility in Hyattsville.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has 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 actually 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better enthusiastic high energy feel.

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

photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Hyattsville traveling professional 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather project emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo by utilizing 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Hyattsville logo but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Hyattsville logo design 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 business logo design projects that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A but my customer, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man really hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to discuss it with colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get honest point of views on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really 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 include 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 proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo understand how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design job has it’s allotment of hurdles, but the greatest 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 providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Hyattsville publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, but it is the most necessary part of a published book since it is usually the initial thing a person sees in the book store. With regard to a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever get to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, colorful and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it seems like that in many cases one of the things individuals often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a spirit of flight and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 Hyattsville logo design used for marketing as well as a tag design for Vintage Instance includes an old font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, that appeared to be older cases.

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

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects considering that it appears that each and every dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo 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 dental profession.

I actually love doing dental care business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a layout that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a household nonprofit, the logo includes 4 personalities startled in height to stand for a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too 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 don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to explain how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a Hyattsville hair layout studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo that conveyed a feeling of calmness and connection for their new hair studio. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious path of making just a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo design that suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl featured into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is frequently the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the importance on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian horse logo design produced for an equine ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo style for a software developer the design attributes and also legendary Hyattsville component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and hard 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 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 offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in many cases the symbolism behind a company logo is equally as important as how it serves the company it represents.

Advance logo design created for a Hyattsvilleindoor developer, layout feature a collection of red circles that converge and replace the letter O in the center of the logo style.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly realized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant 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 types of passions, a place to sell their used goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Hyattsville logo design with an illustration that garners the attention of vehicles and sends an image that evokes the passion 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 tranquil habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Hyattsville company logo design has a field integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo idea wasn’t really created for an Hyattsville area farm it was in reality created for a products broker, and this particular trademark was one of many that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to design a graphic that projected self-assurance, effectiveness, and wealth.

 Hyattsville Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo layout feature for ostensibly facing arrow and also the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design that they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the freedom to delve into any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo created for the use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font style that is evocative a popular Hyattsville sports group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created loads 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 bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked directly with the owner to develop a 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 signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
