POINTERS ON PICKING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design company offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can not refund the amount of time you commit which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but ultimately a designer can only be evaluated from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature actual samples chances are they won’t be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

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

We’ve done logo design work for builders, colleges, heart surgeons, party planners, restaurants, retailers, and virtually every other kind of business concern you can envision.

The thing which seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you might possibly have found in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are retained to perform, we do ourselves.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Inkster company understands that they need a logo, however few start-ups fully understand the vital role their organization’s logo can make in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo functions more effectively than another. A company logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the growth of a company, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Inkster businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable business logo will be legible and equally emotive at any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate on any type of device, in print, on product 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 design must be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of noting something to ensure that it could be recognized, its foundation originates from the mark burned onto livestock. These days a brand signifies practically anything with an intention, whether it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are all from the very same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest targeted at a target market, it’s objective is to produce a mental image that the audience will relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody says the names Ferrari or Mustang what we consider 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 transport us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals buy those brands. Brand image is why people acquire most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the origin of many branding companies you’ll discover that they are frequently rebranded marketing agencies. When someone states they are in marketing most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when someone states “I’m in branding”… it just seems much more attractive, maybe it’s since most people do not understand what it means 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 company that affect understandings. This mainly consists of the name, the logo, the packaging, the colors used yet can additionally consist of sound, lighting, texture, signs, really anything that can be seen, felt or heard become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps shape the image of a company, a product or a business. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, as well as collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as sales brochures. Some visual designers also build sites as well as user interfaces. The crucial role of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and an emotional tone with the objective of affecting actions, results as well as assumptions.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Inkster coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were opening in an old part of the community and really wanted to visualize a retro atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I achieved the two jobs by creating a sign concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and germs made for Inkster clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that deals with the laboratory examination of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is really the sole instance I call to mind where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be extremely 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 illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and much more memorable.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a family enjoyable center in Inkster.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the types of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the 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 clear choice would have been to feature a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really resonate an environment 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, ultimately 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 mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Inkster traveling 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 specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather communicate emotional experiences through the images they record. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something comparable to this logo design by using 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Inkster logo but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Inkster logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

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

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get honest assessments on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they adored the design and were able to persuade 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 choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo recognize how crucial a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design job possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, but the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, layout for Inkster book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most essential part of a published book due to the fact that it is usually the very first thing a person views in the book shop. Regarding a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity they will ever have to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase 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 made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches customized to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it looks like that in many cases 1 of the items folks usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a sense of air travel and it was definitely a success.

 Inkster logo design utilized for advertising as well as a tag style for Vintage Situation features an antiquated typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for music instruments, that looked to be vintage cases. For this custom logo design I tried to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid retro feel to it and could be used for anything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different generation.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Inkster, style consist of an arc with lines converging via it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs because it appears that virtually every dentist involves 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 small business branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated 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 really love doing dental care business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific field of the 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 inevitably I created a layout that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a household not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the style.

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 people residing in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to summarize exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo style produced for a Inkster hair design workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo that conveyed a spirit of relaxation and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious course of making merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a business logo which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is usually the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the attention on the feeling that they wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian horse logo style produced for a steed ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo developed an original logotype design styled to symbolize the unique physical traits of the Arabian kind of equines. By having a distinctive head shape and high tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the most easily recognizable horse types in the entire world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Cafe logo style a small restaurant, design includes a customized script font style which floats over a team of ornate lines as well as dots.

Logo style for a software programmer the design features and renowned Inkster 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 management, process and task control, and drive managing. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

The logo 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 regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the owner of the company and in many cases the symbolism behind a business logo is equally as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.

Advance logo layout produced for a Inksterindoor developer, layout feature a collection of red circles that converge and also change the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

A Inkster business logo design featuring a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly knew the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a place to sell their used goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Inkster logo design design with an illustration that garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Inkster company logo layout has actually a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo concept wasn’t actually composed for an Inkster regional farm it was in reality designed for an investments broker, and this company was one of several that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was to generate a image that projects self-assurance, effectiveness, and opulence.

 Inkster Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo style feature for externally dealing with arrow as well as the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the freedom to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without recognizing where the target is. Luckily, in this particular case, I struck a bullseye with the first try.

Logo developed for using an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is similar to a renowned Inkster sports team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to create a business logo which 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 lighted sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
