STRATEGIES ON CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design firm offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can not refund the time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be evaluated by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature real world examples chances are they won’t be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to reflect your unique vision for your company. If a designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how soon they can get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Lanham-Seabrook entrepreneur understands that they require a logo, however few start-ups fully recognize the pivotal role their business logo can play in their success, or exactly why one business logo works far better than another. A business logo has an instant and long term effect on the success of a business, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Lanham-Seabrook businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require consideration, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to billboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any sort of device, in print, on 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 organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb and also a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the process of marking something so that it could be identified, its foundation comes from the mark burned onto livestock. Nowadays a brand symbolizes basically anything with a motive, regardless if it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are all from the same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition targeted at a target audience, it’s goal is to develop a mental image that the audience will identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and identity design. When somebody mentions the brand names Porsche or Corvette what we think of 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 transport 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 sexy . That is brand image and that is what makes people want those products. Brand image is why people buy specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Agencies – If you reflect on the beginning of a lot of branding agencies you’ll discover that they are frequently re-branded advertising firms. When someone says they are in advertising most people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that focuses on a kind of visual design that helps shape the public image of a business, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some visual designers also develop websites and software interfaces. The crucial duty of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and a psychological tone with the goal of influencing activities, outcomes as well as assumptions.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo style of a bicycle developed for a Lanham-Seabrook coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee shop were opening up in an old section of town and really wanted to visualize a retro tone without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both of these tasks by designing a logo design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also germs created for Lanham-Seabrook medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which investigates the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which deals with the laboratory examination of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Usually I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves 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 illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that makes it more appealing, more interest grabbing and more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a household fun facility in Lanham-Seabrook.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually reflect 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 name itself to provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they used 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 exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and also a tree - made for Lanham-Seabrook travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead convey emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they frequently tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be communicated with mere words. I attempted to do something comparable to this logo design by employing the positive space in the design to suggest 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Lanham-Seabrook logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Lanham-Seabrook logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design jobs that I take on I really take pleasure in 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 shape as a stroke in the letter A but the client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get objective assessments on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really liked 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to design their business logo recognize how vital a logo is for their organization so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of hurdles, but the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Lanham-Seabrook publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow piece of real estate to work with, yet it is the most vital part of a published book given that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the book store. With respect to a publisher, it’s the best opportunity that they will likely ever get to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

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

Air LA logo created for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with the bars modified to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it looks like that in many cases one of the things folks often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a spirit of flight and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 Lanham-Seabrook logo style utilized for advertising as well as a label layout for Vintage Instance includes an archaic font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for musical instruments, which looked to be much older cases. For this logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that had a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could easily be utilized for every thing from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different generation.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Lanham-Seabrook, layout include an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs due to the fact that it seems that every single dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably include an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a design that doesn’t 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 particular design over to the client the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method 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 downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to summarize exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo design produced for a Lanham-Seabrook hair design studio featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a company logo which conveyed a sense of ease and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious direction of creating just a stylized orchid but instead created a logo design which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is in most cases the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the focus on the feeling that they wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Arabian steed logo layout developed for a steed cattle ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian program equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo style for a software application programmer the layout features and famous Lanham-Seabrook 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 disk management. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a bridge between the software program and computer 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 business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it serves the business it stands for.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly understood the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to market their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Lanham-Seabrook business logo design with an image that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo design wasn’t actually developed for an Lanham-Seabrook regional farm it was actually developed for a commodities broker, and this creative logo was one of several that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was actually to design a graphic that projects self-confidence, success, and prosperity.

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design that they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the flexibility to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without realizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the first try.

Logo design designed for making use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font that is evocative a well-known Lanham-Seabrook sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

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 US, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked directly with the business owner to create a logo design that 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 neon signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
