POINTERS ON SELECTING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design agency presents a money back guarantee try to remember that they can’t refund the amount of time you invest which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a design firm can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature real life examples chances are they will not be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to mirror your unique vision for your company. If a logo designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they can get paid.

QUALITIES OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Every new Lutherville-Timonium company realizes that they probably need a logo, but few new business owners thoroughly realize the crucial role their company logo will play in their financial success, or the reason that one business logo performs better than another. A logo design has a critical and lasting effect on the financial success of a company, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Lutherville-Timonium companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require scrutiny, they can be comprehended in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to store signs a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  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 personal, and they are suitable for the product or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be lasting and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the act of marking something to make sure that it can be distinguished, its genesis comes from the brand burned onto animals. Nowadays a brand represents pretty much anything with a motive, regardless of whether it be revenue or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are each from the very 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 calculated popularity contest aimed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to create a mental image that the audience will likely connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and identity design. When somebody says the names Porsche or Corvette what we think about 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, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that is what makes people purchase those brands. Brand image is why individuals identify with 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 beginning of many branding agencies you’ll find that they are frequently rebranded marketing agencies. When a person says they are in marketing many people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when a person says “I am in branding”… it simply seems much more impressive, maybe it’s due to the fact that most individuals do not understand what it indicates 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 elements of a product or agency that influence view points. This primarily includes the name, the logo, the packaging, the different colors used but can also consist of audio, lights, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, touched or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that focuses on a kind of visual design which helps shape the public image of a firm, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some visual designers also develop sites as well as user interfaces. The essential role of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of influencing actions, results as well as perceptions.

select logos & signs

Retro logo layout of a bike developed for a Lutherville-Timonium coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were launching in an older section of the community and wished to project a nostalgic vibe without appearing as boring or low energy. I fulfilled both of these tasks by designing a sign 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.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and germs designed for Lutherville-Timonium medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the laboratory evaluation of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the only instance I recollect in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves very literally, however 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 brand that makes it more interesting, more focus grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping green frog designed for a family fun center in Lutherville-Timonium.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool 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 kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental experts, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location 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 name itself to provide the logo a more dynamic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept 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 did was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Lutherville-Timonium travel 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the images they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they often 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 often have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design by utilizing 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Lutherville-Timonium logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Lutherville-Timonium logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really savor and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A however my client, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his contempt for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to share it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial assessments on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really liked the concept 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 alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their logo design realize how crucial a logo is for their business so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo job possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, but the largest obstacle 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 customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, layout for Lutherville-Timonium book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most critical part of a published book given that it is often the primary thing a person views in the book shop. Regarding a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will ever have to promote their product and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of room 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 benches customized to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it seems like that in many occurrences one of the aspects folks usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a good sense of air travel and it was certainly a success.

 Lutherville-Timonium logo layout utilized for advertising and marketing and also a label layout for Vintage Situation includes an archaic typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, which looked to be older cases. For this logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid retro feel to it and could easily be used for anything from a website to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another era.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Lutherville-Timonium, style include an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs due to the fact that it appears that almost every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

I really enjoy doing dental business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered 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 overt, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a household not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters staggered in height to represent 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 custom logo design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his community. Many 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 overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort 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 people 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 chance to be comprehended.

Logo design produced for a Lutherville-Timonium hair layout studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a company logo which communicated a spirit of relaxation and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which did not go the obvious route of creating just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a company logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is generally the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the emphasis on the emotion that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian steed logo layout produced for a steed ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian program horses.

Logo design for a software designer the layout attributes as well as legendary Lutherville-Timonium component 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 links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection in between the software and hardware.

The logo design 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 spell out anything to anyone about 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 quite a few cases the symbolism behind a logo design is just as important as how it serves the business it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly knew the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a spot to sell off their used products to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Lutherville-Timonium business logo design utilizing a graphic that captures the attention of vehicles and projects an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Lutherville-Timonium company logo layout has a field integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t really created for an Lutherville-Timonium area farm it was actually developed for a commodities broker, and this trademark was one of many that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to make a brand mark that projected confidence, effectiveness, and luxury.

Good in that it provides a designer the liberty to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without knowing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this particular instance, I nailed a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo design created for the use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is reminiscent of a famous Lutherville-Timonium sporting activities team logo design.

I’ve crafted loads of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking in which I worked closely with the owner to create a logo that worked extremely 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 illuminated sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
