POINTERS ON CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design company offers a money back guarantee try to remember that they can’t reimburse the time you invest which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

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

VISION

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

Plymouth LOGO DESIGN​

For over 2 decades ImageCo has been helping business owners cultivate notable brands. We have undertaken logo design work for mechanics, educational institutions, diamond miners, wedding singers, coffee roasters, retailers, and just about every other kind of business concern you can envision. What makes us different compared to our contemporaries is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every design as if it will be utilized as an electric sign. As a result of our sign first method our identity designs can, and have been utilized in everything from garment labels to electrical signs. Our sign first approach guarantees that our logos are just as reliable whether they are used in television commercials or web headers, they are consistently identifiable, comprehended, and always remembered irrespective of size or function.

American Made ★ Design

Something that truly sets ImageCo apart from many of the design firms that you probably have come across online, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are retained to do, we do ourselves. No matter the type of design project we take on, logo, website design, trade show booth, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will job-out our customer’s work to agencies located outside the US. Whenever you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a go-between that increases the cost of your project and imposes the conditions of how my customers and I do business.

QUALITIES OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Plymouth company understands that they probably need a logo, however few start-ups thoroughly recognize the essential role their logo design will perform in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo functions better than another. A business logo has a critical and lasting effect on the viability of a business, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Plymouth companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need consideration, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable business logo will be legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that work 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 product or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of marking something to ensure that it could be recognized, its genesis originates from the brand branded onto animals. These days a brand indicates basically anything with an objective, whether it be earnings or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s sexy cousin, they are both from the exact 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 aimed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the audience will likely connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody says the names Porsche or Mustang what we think about is their brand image, it’s a picture 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 the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people purchase those brands. Brand image is why people purchase most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the history of a lot of branding agencies you’ll find that they are quite often rebranded marketing and advertising firms. When a person claims they are in advertising many people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when a person says “I am in branding”… it just sounds more impressive, probably it’s due to the fact that many people don’t understand what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and kind of sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that defines the visual aspects of a product or business that influence understandings. This primarily consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors used but can likewise include sound, lighting, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, felt or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a type of visual design that helps form the public image of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and also pamphlets. Some identity designers also design sites as well as software interfaces. The vital role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of influencing actions, end results and assumptions.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a Plymouth coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee shop were opening in an older part of the town and wished to cast an old-fashioned feel without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both tasks via designing a sign design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and germs made for Plymouth clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which investigates the causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare that deals with the clinical evaluation of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is really the sole instance I recollect where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, but it does it in a fashion that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an explanation 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 even more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping green frog designed for a family members fun center in Plymouth.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 types of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually reflect 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 more dynamic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they used for marketing. I also think 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 exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - developed for Plymouth travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather niche field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently 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 fullness that can’t be revealed with mere words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by employing 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Plymouth logo design but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Plymouth logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette 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 man genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members 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 include every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their business logo comprehend how essential a logo is for their company so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo job has it’s portion of hurdles, but the greatest 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 style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Plymouth publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin slice of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most vital part of a printed book because it is usually the first thing a person sees in the book shop. Concerning a publisher, it’s the opportunity that they will ever have to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it seems that in many instances 1 of the aspects consumers tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

 Plymouth logo style used for advertising and marketing and a tag layout for Vintage Instance includes an old-fashioned typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for music instruments, which looked to be vintage cases. For this custom logo design I tried to come up with a logo that had a fluid old style feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another generation.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Plymouth, layout include an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most difficult logo design jobs considering that it seems that almost every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental offices do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless 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 dental logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a concept that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family members nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be far too literal about 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 company or organization wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo design created for a Plymouth hair design studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo that conveyed an atmosphere of tranquility and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a concept which did not go the obvious direction of creating merely a stylized orchid but rather delivered a logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is frequently the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the main focus on the feeling that they wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian steed logo design created for a steed cattle ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian program horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo created an original company logo concept styled to symbolize the unique physical traits of the Arabian type of horses. With an identifiable head shape and very high tail posture, the Arabian is one of the most quite easily recognizable horse types in the entire world.

Las Cafe logo layout a little restaurant, style consists of a changed manuscript font which floats above a team of luxuriant lines and dots.

Logo layout for a software application developer the layout features and also legendary Plymouth component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

The business logo 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 point out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it represented something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance behind a business logo is just as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

Evolve logo layout created for a Plymouthinterior designer, layout feature a collection of red circles that intersect and also replace the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

A Plymouth business logo design featuring an angler in the center of the name casting a fly towards the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly recognized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a place to market their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Plymouth logo design design along with a graphic that pulls in the interest of traffic and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor 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 relaxed habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Plymouth company logo design has actually a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand idea wasn’t really produced for an Plymouth regional farm it was actually developed for a products broker, and this particular creative logo was one of multiple which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to make a brand mark that projects esteem, success, and prosperity.

 Plymouth Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo design function for externally encountering arrowhead as well as the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design they preferred, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the freedom to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without realizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I hit a bullseye with the first try.

Logo developed for making use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is similar to a well-known Plymouth sporting activities group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed quite a lot of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake pastry shops 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 design a logo that worked extremely well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
