TIPS ON FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t contain real life samples odds are they will not be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be understood and remembered, and it’s goal is to mirror your personal vision for your business. If a logo designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they will get paid.

QUALITIES OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Lino Lakes entrepreneur knows they need a logo, but few start-ups thoroughly realize the key role their business logo will play in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo design functions better than another. A business logo has a critical and lasting impact on the financial success of a company, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Lino Lakes companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.

  3. Versatility: logos that work on any type of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.

  5. Relevance: a business logo should be lasting and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and the process of noting something to make sure that it could be distinguished, its origin originates from the mark branded onto livestock. These days a brand signifies practically anything with a motive, regardless of whether it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the worth of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive cousin, they are both from the very 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 competition aimed at a target audience, it’s goal is to produce a mental image that the audience will identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone states the names Lamborghini or Corvette what we think of is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car with 4 wheels that can carry 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 unique . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals purchase those products. Brand image is why people purchase 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 history of the majority of branding firms you’ll discover that they are quite often rebranded advertising agencies. When a person states they are in advertising many people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps shape the perception of a business, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral products such as cards, stationery, and brochures. Some identity designers also develop websites and software interfaces. The important role of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the goal of affecting activities, end results as well as perceptions.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Lino Lakes coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening in an old part of the town and wished to visualize a vintage feel without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs by creating a symbol design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo design with a microscope slide as well as germs developed for Lino Lakes medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that works with the laboratory evaluation of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I call to mind where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Usually I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very 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 enhancement to the brand that helps make it more captivating, more focus grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog created for a family members enjoyable center in Lino Lakes.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun 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 done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and included 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 made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Lino Lakes traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather convey emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, 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 a lot more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with just words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo design by making use of 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  Lino Lakes logo design but also to illustrate the depth in her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Lino Lakes logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A however my client, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his contempt for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced viewpoints on the worthiness 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 include every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo design recognize how crucial a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo job possesses it’s allotment of obstacles, however the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, but it is the most essential part of a printed book because it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the book shop. With regard to a publisher, it’s the opportunity they will likely ever have to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

This three color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo made 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 nevertheless it looks like that in many instances one of the aspects folks often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a good sense of flight and it was certainly a victory.

 Lino Lakes logo layout utilized for advertising and marketing as well as a tag style for Vintage Situation includes an old font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for music instruments, which looked to be much older cases. For this logo concept I sought to come up with a logo that provided a fluid vintage feel to it and could easily be utilized for everything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different generation.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Lino Lakes, design include an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects due to the fact that it appears that each and every dentist features 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 marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dentists do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

I actually love doing dental care business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a household nonprofit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in elevation to stand for 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 depictive of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be overly 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 don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries 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 ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that describes itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style created for a Lino Lakes hair design studio including a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo which related a spirit of calmness and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious route of making just a stylized orchid but instead crafted a logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is in most cases the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the main focus on the perception that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian horse logo design developed for a steed ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo layout for a software program designer the design features and renowned Lino Lakes element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk managing. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a connection in between the software and hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the significance supporting a business logo is equally as important as how it serves the organization it stands for.

Evolve logo design produced for a Lino Lakesinterior developer, style feature a collection of red circles that intersect and also replace the letter O in the center of the logo design.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Lino Lakes business logo style including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a spot to sell off their pre-owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Lino Lakes logo design along with an illustration that garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

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

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem design wasn’t really created for an Lino Lakes regional farm it was in reality devised for an investments broker, and this trademark was one of several which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to generate a brand mark that projects esteem, success, and luxury.

 Lino Lakes Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo style feature for externally encountering arrowhead as well as the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby shape.

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 gives a designer the flexibility to delve into any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without realizing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this particular case, I hit a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo developed for using a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is reminiscent of a well-known Lino Lakes sporting activities group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created loads of restaurant logo designs and establishment 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 think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked closely with the owner to produce a business 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 neon sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
