STRATEGIES FOR CHOOSING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but inevitably a design firm can only be evaluated from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not contain real life samples chances are they will not be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

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

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Every new Chanhassen entrepreneur knows they probably need a logo, yet few start-ups entirely comprehend the crucial role their logo will make in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo design functions more effectively than another. A company logo has an instant and sustaining impact on the financial success of a company, pick the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Chanhassen businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require consideration, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable logo will continue to be legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which function 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 item or organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It is both a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the process of marking something so that it could be recognized, its foundation comes from the brand branded onto animals. These days a brand indicates pretty much anything with an intention, regardless if it be revenue or politics, a brand is an inherent aspect of defining the value of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are both 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 contest targeted at a target audience, it’s objective is to develop an image that the audience will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person states the names Lamborghini 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 car with 4 wheels that can transport us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals buy those brands. Brand image is why people acquire specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the history of a lot of branding agencies you’ll discover that they are frequently re-branded advertising and marketing firms. When a person claims they are in advertising most people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a type of visual design which helps form the public image of a business, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as sales brochures. Some visual designers also build sites and software interfaces. The crucial role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the goal of affecting actions, end results as well as assumptions.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Chanhassen coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening up in an older part of the town and really wanted to cast a nostalgic feel without appearing as boring or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs by means of creating a trademark concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria designed for Chanhassen clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that deals with the clinical examination of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the sole instance I remember in which I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, but it does it in a way that integrates 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 enhancement to the name that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping green frog made for a household fun center in Chanhassen.

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 norm of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a some 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 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 provide the logo a more enthusiastic high energy feeling.

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

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and also a tree - created for Chanhassen 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 rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather project emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I tried to do something comparable to this logo by using 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Chanhassen logo design but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Chanhassen logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly 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 form as a stroke in the character A however the client, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral point of views on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they loved 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 include 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 concept.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo design recognize how important a logo design is for their organization so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo project possesses it’s allotment of obstacles, however the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow piece of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most critical part of a printed book due to the fact that it is in most cases the first thing a person views in the bookstore. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will ever have to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

This three 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 designed for an airline 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 yet it seems that in many instances 1 of the aspects people usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a feeling of air travel and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 Chanhassen logo style made use of for advertising and marketing and a tag style for Vintage Case includes an old typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for music instruments, which seemed to be vintage cases. For this custom logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be utilized for everything from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another generation.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Chanhassen, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects due to the fact that it seems that each and every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but 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 profession.

I really enjoy doing dentist logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area of dental treatment 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 single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this concept over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent a family with in the layout.

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 love that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to describe precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo style produced for a Chanhassen hair layout studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo which related an atmosphere of simplicity and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious route of making just a stylized orchid but instead delivered a business logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is usually the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the importance on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Logo design for a software developer the style features as well as famous Chanhassen component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk operations. 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 bridge between the software program and hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it meant something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

A Chanhassen business logo layout featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly understood the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a location to sell off their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Chanhassen logo design design utilizing a graphic that garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this Chanhassen company logo layout has actually a field integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo design wasn’t actually created for an Chanhassen regional farm it was in reality developed for a products broker, and this particular trademark was one of several that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to develop an identity that projected assurance, success, and prosperity.

 Chanhassen Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo style attribute for externally facing arrowhead and also the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design that they wanted, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the freedom to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this particular instance, I nailed a bullseye with the first try.

Logo created for the use of an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is evocative a popular Chanhassen sporting activities group logo design.

I have designed quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and business 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 undertaking in which I worked directly with the business owner to develop a logo design 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 lighted sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
