TIPS FOR IDENTIFYING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they simply cannot reimburse the amount of time you commit which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be evaluated by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain real world examples chances are they will not be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s purpose is to mirror your unique vision for your organization. If a designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Maryland City organization knows they require a logo, yet few new business owners fully recognize the pivotal role their logo can play in their financial success, or precisely why one logo works far better than another. A business logo has an immediate and sustaining influence on the growth of a business, go with the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Maryland City businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not need consideration, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to billboards a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate 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 item or business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and the act of marking something to ensure that it could be recognized, its origin originates from the mark branded onto animals. Nowadays a brand represents virtually anything with an intention, regardless if it be revenue or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the worth of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive sister, they are each from the same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest directed at a specific audience, it’s goal is to create a mental image that the target market can connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody mentions the brand names Ferrari or Mustang what we consider is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of an automobile with 4 wheels that can deliver us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes people want those brands. Brand image is why individuals buy most things, from Nike to Adidas 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 a lot of branding firms you’ll find that they are often rebranded advertising companies. When a person says they are in marketing most individuals 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 Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a kind of visual design that helps shape the perception of a business, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and also sales brochures. Some identity designers also build websites as well as user interfaces. The necessary duty of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the objective of affecting activities, results as well as assumptions.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bike developed for a Maryland City coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually launching in an old section of the town and hoped to visualize a retro tone without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs via developing a sign design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Maryland City clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which works with the clinical evaluation of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom 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 extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather 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 enhancer to the name that makes it more captivating, more attention grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping green frog created for a family fun facility in Maryland City.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company features 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 place to go and spring doesn’t really resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this 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 name itself to give the logo a much more lively high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they utilized for advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - created for Maryland City travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead project emotional experiences by means of the photos they record. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo design by making use of 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Maryland City logo design but also to show the depth of her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Maryland City logo style 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 custom logo design jobs that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette 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 really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members did not share his scorn for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to share it with colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get objective point of views on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his 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 … in the end 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 creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo comprehend how crucial a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of difficulties, however the most significant obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, design for Maryland City book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most critical part of a published book since it is usually the first thing a person views in the book store. With respect to a publisher, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever get to spotlight their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

This three 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 made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with benches modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it seems that in many cases one of the aspects people usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a sense of air travel and it was undoubtedly a success.

 Maryland City logo layout made use of for marketing as well as a label style for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be much older cases. For this business logo design I sought to come up with a logo that provided a fluid retro feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different era.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Maryland City, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design projects because it seems that each and every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dentists do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably include an image of a potato and a cow.

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

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this particular concept 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 family not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in height to represent a family with in the style.

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 illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Most 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 overly literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a Maryland City hair layout workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design that projected a feeling of ease and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious route of making simply a stylized orchid but instead designed a business logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is frequently the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the focus on the perception that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, 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 serves as a bridge 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 business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe 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 business and in many cases the symbolism behind a business logo is just as important as how it serves the business it represents.

Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a spot to market their used items to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Maryland City logo design using an image that pulls in the attention of vehicles and sends an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour 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.

Logo style MQ farms, this Maryland City company logo style has a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo design wasn’t really developed for an Maryland City regional farm it was actually devised for a products broker, and this particular business logo was one of a handful of that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was to generate an identity that projected esteem, financial success, and opulence.

 Maryland City Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo style function for externally dealing with arrowhead as well as the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the freedom to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where the target is. Thankfully, in this particular instance, I nailed a bullseye with the very first shot.

Logo designed for using an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is evocative a well-known Maryland City sporting activities group logo design.

I’ve designed loads of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked closely with the owner to create a logo design that worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
