STRATEGIES FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo 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 not refund the amount of time you commit which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a designer can only be evaluated from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t contain real world examples chances are they will not be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s purpose is to echo your personal vision for your company. If a logo designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they can get paid.

We have done logo design work for ranchers, universities, diamond miners, wedding singers, coffee shops, retailers, and practically every other kind of business you can envision.

The thing that seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you might possibly have stumbled upon on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are enlisted to perform, we do in-house.

QUALITIES OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Rosemount business realizes that they require a logo, however few start ups entirely realize the pivotal role their business logo can perform in their becoming successful, or precisely why one business logo works better than another. A business logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the financial success of a business, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Rosemount 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.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require deliberation, they can be understood in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to store signs a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 product or organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be timeless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the act of noting something to ensure that it can be identified, its origin comes from the brand burned onto livestock. Today a brand represents practically anything with a motive, regardless if it be profit or politics, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth of a specific thing 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 are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest targeted at a target audience, it’s objective is to create an image that the audience will relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When someone says the brand names Lamborghini or Mustang what we think about is their brand image, it’s an image that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a vehicle 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 exotic . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people want those products. Brand image is why individuals acquire most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Agencies – If you reflect on the history of a lot of branding agencies you’ll find that they are often re-branded advertising and marketing companies. When someone says they are in marketing many people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that concentrates on a type of visual design which helps shape the image of a business, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, and brochures. Some visual designers also develop sites and user interfaces. The vital duty of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the objective of influencing activities, results and perceptions.

select signs/logos

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a Rosemount coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and bistro were actually launching in an old section of the area and really wanted to visualize an old-fashioned atmosphere without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I achieved each of the jobs via designing a company logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide and bacteria created for Rosemount medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that deals with the laboratory evaluation of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Usually I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, however 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 enhancer to the brand that makes it more interesting, more focus grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a family enjoyable facility in Rosemount.

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 usual of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really resonate an atmosphere 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more lively high energy impression.

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

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Rosemount traveling professional 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather communicate emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they often tell entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand 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 attempted to do something similar to this logo by utilizing 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Rosemount logo design but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Rosemount logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project 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 concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however my client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his scorn for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial assessments on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really liked 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 went with the original concept.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo design understand how vital a logo design is for their organization so they are way more vested in the final result. Every logo project has it’s share of difficulties, however the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Rosemount book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, however it really is the most critical part of a published book given that it is usually the initial thing a person sees in the bookstore. Concerning a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will ever have to promote 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 gives plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems that in many occurrences one of the aspects folks usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a feeling of air travel and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 Rosemount logo layout utilized for marketing and a tag layout for Vintage Situation features an antiquated typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be older cases. For this business logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web page to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Rosemount, design consist of an arc with lines converging with it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most difficult logo jobs because it appears that each and every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental practices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

I actually love doing dental care logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this particular 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 characters surprised in elevation to stand for a family unit 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 people in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be overly literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to illustrate exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo layout created for a Rosemount hair layout workshop including a script font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design that communicated a feeling of simplicity and class for their new hair salon. I created a concept that did not go the obvious direction of making merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo design that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is more often than not the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the main focus on the feeling that they wanted to project to their patrons.

Arabian steed logo design created for a horse cattle ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian show horses.

Logo style for a software designer the layout functions as well as renowned Rosemount element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and disk managing. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated 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. However, it meant something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance behind a logo is equally as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

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

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly realized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell off their used products to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Rosemount logo design along with an illustration which garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew 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 Rosemount company logo style has actually an area included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo concept wasn’t actually designed for an Rosemount regional farm it was in reality created for an investments broker, and this particular brand was one of several that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to design an identity that projects trust, effectiveness, and opulence.

 Rosemount Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo style function for externally encountering arrowhead as well as the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the liberty to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the first go.

Logo developed for the use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript typeface that is evocative a well-known Rosemount sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, 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 cool undertaking in which I worked closely with the proprietor to create a logo design which worked extremely well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
