TIPS FOR PICKING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design company offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can not reimburse the amount of time you invest which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a design firm can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature real life samples odds are they won’t be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim 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 really focused on is how fast they can get paid.

ASPECTS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Oxon Hill-Glassmanor business knows they require a logo, but few new business owners entirely comprehend the vital role their logo design will make in their success, or precisely why one logo performs more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and sustaining influence on the financial success of a company, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Oxon Hill-Glassmanor businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require scrutiny, they can be understood in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to store signs a scalable logo design will stay legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any 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 brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the process of marking something so that it could be distinguished, its foundation comes from the brand branded onto livestock. These days a brand represents virtually anything with an objective, whether it be revenue or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the value of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy cousin, they are each from the very same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest directed at a specific audience, it’s goal is to develop an image that the target market will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone says 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 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 speed, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people purchase those products. Brand image is why people buy most things, 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 the majority of branding firms you’ll find that they are often re-branded advertising and marketing companies. When someone states they are in marketing most people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. But when a person states “I’m in branding”… it simply seems much more attractive, maybe it’s due to the fact that many people don’t fully understand what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and kind of attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that describes the visual aspects of a product or business that influence understandings. This primarily consists of the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the different colors utilized but can additionally consist of audio, lighting, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, touched or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps form the image of a business, a product or a business. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some identity designers also develop sites and software interfaces. The important duty of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and a psychological tone with the goal of affecting activities, outcomes and also perceptions.

select logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Oxon Hill-Glassmanor coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were opening in an old section of town and wanted to cast an old-fashioned vibe without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks by designing a trademark concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and also bacteria designed for Oxon Hill-Glassmanor clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which works with the clinical examination of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves quite literally, but 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 brand that helps make it more captivating, more attention grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping green frog designed for a family members fun facility in Oxon Hill-Glassmanor.

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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dentists, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not really 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 lively 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 advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I created was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and also a tree - created for Oxon Hill-Glassmanor 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather project emotional journeys through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they often convey entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with just words. I tried to do something 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Oxon Hill-Glassmanor logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Oxon Hill-Glassmanor logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A however my client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced assessments on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they adored the concept and were able to reason with him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to insert 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 design.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo design understand how vital a logo design is for their company so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo design job has it’s portion of obstacles, but the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Oxon Hill-Glassmanor publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most crucial part of a published book because it is often the initial thing a person views in the book shop. For a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will ever have to advertise their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart but it seems like that in many cases one of the things people tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a feeling of flight and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 Oxon Hill-Glassmanor logo design used for advertising as well as a tag layout for Vintage Instance features an antiquated font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Oxon Hill-Glassmanor, style consist of an arc with lines converging through it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design projects due to the fact that it appears that each and every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design 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 logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and eventually I created a layout that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a family members nonprofit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in elevation to represent a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to describe how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo style produced for a Oxon Hill-Glassmanor hair design workshop including a script font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo that carried a spirit of simplicity and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious direction of making merely a stylized orchid but rather designed a business logo which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is more often than not the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the importance on the perception that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and drive operations. The kernel connects the system 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 hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the 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 meant something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the symbolism supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.

I designed their Oxon Hill-Glassmanor business logo design along with an image which garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Fortunately, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the first try.

Logo developed for the use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is reminiscent of a famous Oxon Hill-Glassmanor sports team logo.

I’ve created quite a lot 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 neat project in which I worked directly with the owner to produce a logo design that worked extremely 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 neon signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
