TIPS ON CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design company offers a money back guarantee try to remember that they can not reimburse the amount of time you commit which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design firm can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not feature actual examples chances are they won’t be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to echo your personal vision for your business. If a designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they can get paid.

We have performed logo design work for farmers, universities, heart surgeons, wedding singers, diners, retailers, and practically every other kind of business concern you can think of.

Whenever you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that marks up the price of your design project and dictates the terms of how we do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Every new West Elkridge company realizes that they require a logo, yet few new business owners entirely grasp the essential role their logo design will play in their financial success, or why one logo functions more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and long term effect on the viability of a company, select the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help West Elkridge businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not need deliberation, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which work on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel right, and they are suitable for the product or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the act of noting something to make sure that it could be recognized, its origin originates from the mark burned onto animals. Nowadays a brand symbolizes virtually anything with an objective, regardless if it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the value of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are all from the exact same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest aimed at a specific audience, it’s goal is to develop an image that the audience will identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and identity design. When a person states the names Ferrari or Mustang 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 transport 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 that is what makes individuals want those brands. Brand image is why individuals acquire specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the history of a lot of branding companies you’ll discover that they are quite often re-branded advertising and marketing firms. When somebody says they are in advertising the majority of people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps form the public image of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and collateral material such as cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some visual designers also design web sites and software interfaces. The essential role of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of affecting actions, outcomes and also understandings.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a West Elkridge coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening in an old section of the community and wished to cast a vintage vibe without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs by designing a custom logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and also bacteria designed for West Elkridge clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which works with the clinical evaluation of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is really the sole instance I call to mind where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves fairly 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that helps make it more captivating, more interest grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a family members fun center in West Elkridge.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really resonate an environment 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more dynamic high energy mood.

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

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and also a tree - made for West Elkridge travel 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 specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead reveal emotional journeys through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by employing 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  West Elkridge logo but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 West Elkridge logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

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

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral opinions on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they really liked 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo comprehend how essential a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo job has it’s share of difficulties, however the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for West Elkridge book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most crucial part of a printed book considering that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person sees in the book shop. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the opportunity they will ever get to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

This 3 color design is vivid, colorful and eye-catching and it gives plenty of territory 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 imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart but it looks like that in many occurrences 1 of the things individuals usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a spirit of airline flight and it was surely a victory.

 West Elkridge logo style made use of for advertising and a label layout for Vintage Instance includes an archaic typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be vintage cases. For this custom logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid retro feel to it and could easily be utilized for every thing from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different era.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in West Elkridge, layout include an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects considering that it seems that each and every dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s 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 love doing dental care logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design created for a household not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities startled in height to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the families in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique 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 designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to summarize specifically how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that explains itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a West Elkridge hair style workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo that communicated an atmosphere of contentment and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious path of designing simply a stylized orchid but alternatively created a business logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is generally the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the importance on the perception that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

Arabian equine logo style created for an equine cattle ranch that specializes in reproducing Arabian show equines.

Logo layout for a software application designer the design functions as well as famous West Elkridge 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). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk management. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a connection in between the software program and computer hardware.

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

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly knew the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a spot to sell off their pre-owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their West Elkridge logo design along with a graphic that pulls in the attention of vehicles and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this West Elkridge company logo design has actually a field incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo design wasn’t actually composed for an West Elkridge regional farm it was really created for an investments broker, and this business logo was one of several which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was to develop a brand mark that projected assurance, effectiveness, and wealth.

 West Elkridge Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo design function for externally encountering arrow and the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the liberty to investigate any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the very first shot.

Logo design created for using a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is reminiscent of a popular West Elkridge sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve crafted loads of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked directly with the business owner to create a logo that worked extremely well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
