POINTERS ON PICKING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design firm presents a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they simply cannot reimburse the time you commit which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but ultimately a designer can only be judged from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t feature real world samples odds are they won’t be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

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

The one difference that really sets ImageCo apart from many of the design agencies that you might possibly have stumbled upon in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are brought on board to perform, we perform in-house.

QUALITIES OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Lakeville organization understands that they probably need a logo, however few start-ups thoroughly comprehend the essential role their logo design will make in their success, or exactly why one business logo works better than another. A logo design has an immediate and long term effect on the growth 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 a barrier and a hindrance for the life of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Lakeville companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require contemplation, they can be grasped in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to store signs a scalable logo will be legible and just as emotive at virtually any dimension.
  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 right, and they are suitable for the item or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s both a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of noting something so that it can be identified, its origin comes from the mark branded onto livestock. Nowadays a brand indicates basically anything with an objective, regardless if it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are each from the same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing 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 audience, it’s objective is to develop an image that the target market can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody states the names Lamborghini 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 an automobile with 4 wheels that can transport 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 products. Brand image is why individuals buy specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the history of many branding agencies you’ll discover that they are quite often re-branded marketing and advertising agencies. When somebody claims they are in advertising and marketing lots of people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when someone says “I’m in branding”… it just seems much more attractive, possibly it’s since lots of people do not understand what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and perhaps even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that describes the visual components of a product or business that affect understandings. This largely consists of the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the colors used however can also consist of audio, lights, texture, signs, actually anything that can be seen, touched or listened to are 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 perception of a firm, a product or a business. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and also sales brochures. Some identity designers also develop web sites and also user interfaces. The essential role of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the goal of influencing activities, results and understandings.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Lakeville coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening in an old section of town and hoped to cast an old-fashioned tone without appearing as boring or low energy. I achieved both jobs by means of designing a sign concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide and also germs designed for Lakeville medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that works with the laboratory evaluation of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Usually I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves quite literally, however it does it in a way 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more appealing, more interest grabbing and more memorable.

logo style with a leaping green frog made for a household fun facility in Lakeville.

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 usual of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental offices, and legal professionals 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 business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a few 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 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 title itself to give the logo a better enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Lakeville travel professional 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 believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead communicate emotional experiences through the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they often share entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo design 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Lakeville logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Lakeville logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design jobs that I take on I seriously take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless design 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 idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however the customer, while he liked 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 specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get objective opinions on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they loved the design 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their logo design recognize how essential a logo design is for their business so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo design job has it’s portion of hurdles, but the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for Lakeville publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, but it really is the most crucial part of a published book since it is often the primary thing a person sees in the book store. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will likely ever get to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

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

Air LA logo design created for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with the bars customized to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it looks like that in many occurrences 1 of the aspects people usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a sense of air travel and it was definitely a success.

 Lakeville logo style used for marketing and also a label layout for Vintage Situation includes an old-fashioned font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be much older cases. For this brand concept I strove to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid vintage feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a web page to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Lakeville, style consist of an arc with lines converging via it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects considering that it appears that almost every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental industry.

I really enjoy doing dentist logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular area 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 single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 characters surprised in elevation to represent a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. The majority of 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 pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wishes to communicate.

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

Logo layout produced for a Lakeville hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design that projected a feeling of tranquility and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious course of creating just a stylized orchid but instead created a company logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is oftentimes the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the main focus on the feeling that they wanted to project to their clients.

Arabian equine logo layout developed for an equine cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian show equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software application designer the style attributes as well as famous Lakeville aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and drive management. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge between the software program and 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 business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it symbolized something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the meaning supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to sell off their pre-owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Lakeville logo design using an image which garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour 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 tranquil habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Lakeville company logo design has actually an area integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo design wasn’t really produced for an Lakeville area farm it was in reality devised for a commodities broker, and this particular creative logo was one of a handful of that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was to make a image that projected self-confidence, success, and wealth.

 Lakeville Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo layout attribute for ostensibly dealing with arrow and the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design that they preferred, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the liberty to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without recognizing where the target is. Fortunately, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo design made for using an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is evocative a popular Lakeville sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have created dozens of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, 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 project where I worked directly with the owner to design a business logo which worked really 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 that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
