TIPS ON DETERMINING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a designer can only be evaluated by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain real life examples chances are they will not be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

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

QUALITIES OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Jamaica Plain organization understands that they need a logo, yet few start ups fully grasp the essential role their logo can play in their financial success, or precisely why one logo design functions more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and sustaining impact on the prosperity of a business, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Jamaica Plain businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require scrutiny, they can be understood in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable logo will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate on any type 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 business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be lasting and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the act of denoting something so that it can be identified, its foundation originates from the mark branded onto animals. Nowadays a brand signifies virtually anything with an objective, whether it be revenue or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the value of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are both from the very same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition targeted at a target audience, it’s objective is to develop an image that the audience will likely connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone mentions the brand names Ferrari or Corvette what we consider 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 deliver us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that is what makes people want those brands. Brand image is why individuals acquire most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you reflect on the origin of most branding firms you’ll discover that they are frequently rebranded marketing firms. When a person says they are in advertising lots of people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that focuses on a kind of visual design that helps form the image of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and collateral products such as business cards, stationery, as well as sales brochures. Some visual designers also design sites as well as user interfaces. The essential function of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the objective of influencing activities, outcomes and also perceptions.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Jamaica Plain coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening up in an older section of the area and hoped to project an old-fashioned atmosphere without appearing as boring or low energy. I accomplished the two jobs by means of developing a logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and germs designed for Jamaica Plain medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the root causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which deals with the laboratory examination of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the only instance I remember 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 concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, yet 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 enhancer to the name that makes it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping green frog designed for a family fun facility in Jamaica Plain.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 norm of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy impression.

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

photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - created for Jamaica Plain travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I think it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather communicate emotional journeys through the photos they record. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they frequently share entire stories through 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 often have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something very similar to this logo by utilizing the positive space in the design to say 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  Jamaica Plain logo design but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Jamaica Plain logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, but 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 character A however the client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial point of views on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they really liked 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a weird creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo design understand how vital a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of obstacles, but the most significant obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Jamaica Plain book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin slice of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most crucial part of a printed book because it is ordinarily the primary thing a person sees in the book store. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will ever have to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

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

Air LA logo made for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars customized to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems like that in many instances 1 of the traits people often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle air service based 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 air travel and it was surely a success.

 Jamaica Plain logo style made use of for advertising and also a label style for Vintage Case features an archaic font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for musical instruments, that looked to be older cases. For this business logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that had a fluid vintage feel to it and could be used for every thing from a web page to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another point in time.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Jamaica Plain, layout include an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects because it appears that every single dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their company logos 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 including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but it has to be done 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 dentist logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered 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 concept. When I turned this concept over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his community. Most 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 very literal with regards 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 wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a Jamaica Plain hair style studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo which conveyed an atmosphere of simplicity and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious course of designing merely a stylized orchid but rather created a logo design that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is frequently the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk operations. The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection in between the software and computer hardware.

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

Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to sell their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Jamaica Plain business logo design using an image that garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Jamaica Plain company logo layout has actually an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo design wasn’t really composed for an Jamaica Plain regional farm it was really created for a commodities broker, and this company logo was one of several which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was really to generate an identity that projected self-confidence, success, and affluence.

 Jamaica Plain Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo layout attribute for externally facing arrowhead as well as the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they preferred, this 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 challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the very first shot.

Logo design made for making use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script typeface that is reminiscent of a famous Jamaica Plain sports team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed dozens of restaurant logos and establishment 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 think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking in which I worked directly with the owner to produce a business logo that worked extremely 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 lighted sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
