POINTERS ON CHOOSING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design company offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they simply cannot refund the time you invest which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be judged by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain real world samples odds are they won’t be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

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

We’ve performed branding work for mechanics, universities, heart surgeons, wedding singers, cafes, retail stores, and virtually every other kind of business you can imagine.

The thing that truly sets ImageCo apart from many of the design companies that you might possibly have stumbled upon in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are enlisted to perform, we perform in-house.

ASPECTS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Owings Mills organization realizes that they probably need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly recognize the key role their logo will play in their becoming successful, or why one business logo performs more effectively than another. A company logo has a critical and lasting influence on the prosperity of a business, choose the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Owings Mills companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need consideration, they can be comprehended in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually any scale.
  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 personal, and they are suitable for the item or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and the process of noting something to make sure that it can be distinguished, its genesis comes from the brand burned onto animals. Today a brand indicates pretty much anything with a motive, regardless if it be earnings or politics, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’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 contest directed at a target market, it’s objective is to develop an image that the target market will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and identity design. When somebody mentions the brand names Lamborghini 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 a car 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 freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes people buy those products. Brand image is why individuals acquire specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the origin of the majority of branding firms you’ll find that they are quite often re-branded marketing firms. When someone states they are in advertising and marketing the majority of people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that concentrates on a kind of visual design that helps form the public image of a business, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, packaging, as well as collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some visual designers also build sites and also user interfaces. The necessary role of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of influencing actions, end results as well as perceptions.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Owings Mills coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee shop were launching in an older part of the community and wanted to visualize a vintage atmosphere without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs by means of creating a trademark concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and germs made for Owings Mills clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which works with the clinical examination of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather 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 illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that makes it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and even more memorable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a family fun facility in Owings Mills.

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 sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually reflect 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 title itself to give the logo a much more lively high energy impression.

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

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for Owings Mills travel 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead communicate emotional journeys by means of the photos they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they often share entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo design by using 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Owings Mills logo design but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Owings Mills logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design projects that I take on I really take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A however the customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man really hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his aversion for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to talk about it with colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get honest judgements on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they really loved 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 include every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo realize how important a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo design project has it’s share of challenges, however the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, style for Owings Mills publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, but it is the most necessary part of a printed book due to the fact that it is usually the initial thing a person views in the book shop. Regarding a publisher, it’s the opportunity that they will likely ever get to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

Air LA logo design designed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches changed to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it seems that in many instances one of the aspects people tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a good sense of air travel and it was surely a success.

 Owings Mills logo design used for marketing and a tag layout for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be much older cases. For this custom logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that had a fluid vintage feel to it and could easily be utilized for everything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another generation.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Owings Mills, layout include an arc with lines converging via it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it seems that virtually every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dental practices do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company 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 dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately 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 implied in the design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities startled in height to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted 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 portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to 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 wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to explain specifically how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a Owings Mills hair design 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 required a company logo that communicated a sense of peace and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious course of making simply a stylized orchid but instead created a business logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is usually the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the main focus on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian horse logo style created for a steed ranch that specializes in reproducing Arabian program steeds.

Logo style for a software application developer the layout attributes as well as renowned Owings Mills component 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 administration, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

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

Evolve logo layout developed for a Owings Millsindoor designer, design feature a collection of red circles that converge as well as replace the letter O in the center of the logo layout.

A Owings Mills business logo style featuring an angler in the center of the name casting a fly towards the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly knew the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to sell off their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Owings Mills logo design design using a graphic which pulls in the attention of vehicles and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor 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 graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Owings Mills company logo layout has actually an area incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t really designed for an Owings Mills regional farm it was in reality devised for a commodities broker, and this particular creative logo was one of multiple that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to create a graphic that projects trust, financial success, and prosperity.

 Owings Mills Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo layout attribute for ostensibly dealing with arrowhead as well as the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design they preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the freedom to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where the target is. Luckily, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo design designed for the use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font style that is similar to a famous Owings Mills sports group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created quite a lot 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 pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking in which I worked directly with the proprietor 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 that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
