STRATEGIES ON CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be judged by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not contain actual examples chances are they will not be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to mirror your unique vision for your company. If a logo designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they will get paid.

For over twenty years ImageCo has been helping business owners establish memorable brands. We have performed brand design work for mechanics, universities, diamond miners, wedding singers, cafes, retail stores, and virtually every other kind of business concern you can envision. What makes ImageCo different compared to typical graphic designers is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we undertake every branding project as though it will be utilized as an electric sign. Because of our sign first technique our logo designs can, and have been employed in everything from garment labels to neon signs. Our sign first approach guarantees that our logos are equally reliable whether they are used in television commercials or website applications, they are consistently recognizable, understood, and always remembered regardless of size or purpose.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the design agencies that you probably have come across in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every project we are brought on board to do, we do in-house. No matter the type of design project we take on, brand identity design, web page, trade show banners, or electric sign, we do not, and never will farm out our client’s work to contractors based outside the USA. When you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the price of your project and imposes the terms of how my customers and I do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Suitland-Silver Hill entrepreneur knows they need a logo, yet few start-ups thoroughly comprehend the vital role their business logo will play in their success, or the reason that one business logo performs more effectively than another. A logo design has a critical and long-term impact on the viability of a company, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Suitland-Silver Hill companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t need contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and just as emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any sort of device, in print, on product 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 business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the act of noting something to make sure that it could be identified, its foundation originates from the brand burned onto animals. Today a brand indicates pretty much anything with a motive, whether it be earnings or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the value of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are all from the very 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 strategic popularity competition aimed at a target audience, it’s objective is to produce an image that the audience will relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person states the brand names Ferrari 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 car with 4 wheels that can move 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 exotic . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people want those brands. Brand image is why individuals identify with most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the beginning of a lot of branding firms you’ll find that they are quite often rebranded advertising firms. When somebody states they are in advertising most people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. But when a person says “I’m in branding”… it simply sounds more attractive, possibly it’s due to the fact that many people do not understand what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and maybe even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that defines the visual components of a product or agency that affect view points. This primarily consists of the name, the logo, the packaging, the colors utilized yet can likewise include sound, lights, texture, signs, really anything that can be seen, touched or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that focuses on a type of visual design that helps form the perception of a business, a product or a business. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and also pamphlets. Some visual designers also develop web sites as well as user interfaces. The crucial function 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 assumptions.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Suitland-Silver Hill coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening in an older section of town and wanted to project a vintage tone without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled the two jobs by means of creating a symbol concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo design with a microscope slide and germs created for Suitland-Silver Hill medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which works with the clinical assessment of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the sole instance I remember where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents 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 an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that makes it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a family members enjoyable facility in Suitland-Silver Hill.

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 sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dentists, 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 name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for Suitland-Silver Hill traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather niche field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather convey emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they often share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo design by utilizing 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Suitland-Silver Hill logo but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Suitland-Silver Hill logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I seriously take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A but the customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they loved 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their business logo recognize how important a logo design is for their organization so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo project has it’s portion of hurdles, however the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Suitland-Silver Hill publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow piece of real estate to work with, but it is the most critical part of a printed book because it is in most cases the very first thing a person sees in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will ever get to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

This 3 color design is vivid, colorful and eye-catching and it gives 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 come and go however it seems that in many instances 1 of the traits folks usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young new venture commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a good sense of flight and it was surely a winner.

 Suitland-Silver Hill logo layout used for advertising as well as a label layout for Vintage Case features an archaic font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for music instruments, which seemed to be vintage cases. For this custom logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could easily be used for every thing from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another point in time.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Suitland-Silver Hill, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most challenging logo projects considering that it appears that almost every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something 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 logo design 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 profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept 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 particular concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a family members nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters startled in height to represent a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to describe exactly how individuals 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 fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that explains itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style created for a Suitland-Silver Hill hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design that projected an atmosphere of calmness and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious course of crafting just a stylized orchid but rather designed a logo design which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is more often than not the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the focus on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

Logo design for a software program designer the design features and renowned Suitland-Silver Hill aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a connection in between the software 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 point out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it represented something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the symbolism supporting a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the business it stands for.

Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a spot to sell off their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Suitland-Silver Hill logo design with a graphic that pulls in the attention of traffic and sends 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 illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand concept wasn’t actually composed for an Suitland-Silver Hill area farm it was really designed for a commodities broker, and this particular creative logo was one of many that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was actually to design a brand mark that projected esteem, effectiveness, and affluence.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design they preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the liberty to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without realizing where the target is. Luckily, in this particular case, I struck a bullseye with the 1st shot.

Logo design made for using an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font that is similar to a famous Suitland-Silver Hill sports group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed 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 directly with the business owner to create a business logo that worked very 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 which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
