STRATEGIES ON CHOOSING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design company offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can not reimburse the amount of time you invest which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but ultimately a designer can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t feature actual examples chances are they will not be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s purpose is to reflect your personal vision for your organization. If a designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they will get paid.

We’ve undertaken logo design work for farmers, universities, heart surgeons, wedding singers, cafes, retailers, and virtually every other kind of business concern you can imagine.

Our sign first technique insures that our logo designs are equally reliable whether they are used in TV commercials or website apps, they are consistently recognizable, understood, and remembered no matter of scale or purpose.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which truly sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you probably have come across on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are brought on board to perform, we perform ourselves. Regardless of the kind of design project we take on, logo, website design, trade show exhibition, or retail sign, we do not, and never will job out our client’s projects to companies based outside the US. Whenever you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the cost of your design project and dictates the terms of how my customers and I do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Saint Louis Park business realizes that they probably need a logo, but few new business owners fully realize the key role their logo can make in their financial success, or why one logo performs more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and long-term impact on the success of a business, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Saint Louis Park companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require scrutiny, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable logo design will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  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 personal, and they are suitable for the item or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the act of denoting something so that it can be distinguished, its origin originates from the mark burned onto livestock. These days a brand represents practically anything with an objective, whether it be profit or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are all from the exact same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition targeted at a target market, it’s goal is to develop an image that the audience will likely connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and identity design. When somebody says the names Porsche or Corvette what we think about is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of an automobile 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 brand image is what makes people purchase those brands. Brand image is why individuals acquire most things, 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 beginning of many branding firms you’ll find that they are quite often rebranded advertising and marketing companies. When a person claims they are in advertising most individuals will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that focuses on a type of visual design that helps shape the image of a company, a product or a company. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some identity designers also develop sites and software interfaces. The important function of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the goal of affecting activities, results as well as perceptions.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bike developed for a Saint Louis Park coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an older section of the town and really wanted to cast a nostalgic feel without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks by creating a symbol design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and germs created for Saint Louis Park clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which works with the laboratory examination of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Normally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves quite 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 illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that makes it more captivating, more interest grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a family members fun facility in Saint Louis Park.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun project to work on, probably 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 which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination 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 name itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy atmosphere.

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 and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - made for Saint Louis Park travel digital 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 rather niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather project emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they often tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something similar to this logo design 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Saint Louis Park logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Saint Louis Park logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I honestly savor and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly 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 form as a stroke in the letter A however my customer, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family didn’t share his hatred for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to discuss it with colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased viewpoints on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they adored the concept and were able to reason with him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to insert 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.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo design comprehend how vital a logo is for their company so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo design project possesses it’s share of difficulties, but the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Saint Louis Park publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender segment of real estate to work with, however it is the most necessary part of a published book considering that it is usually the very first thing a person views in the book store. With respect to a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity they will ever get to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

Air LA logo design made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars changed to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it looks like that in many occurrences one of the aspects consumers usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a spirit of air travel and it was surely a victory.

 Saint Louis Park logo layout made use of for advertising and also a label design for Vintage Situation includes an archaic typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be much older cases. For this business logo concept I sought to come up with a logo that offered a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could be used for every thing from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different generation.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Saint Louis Park, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it appears that almost every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

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

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

William McNally logo design designed for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent 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 design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people in his city. Most 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 very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered 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 wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo style developed for a Saint Louis Park hair layout studio including a script font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a company logo which carried a sense of tranquility and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious path of creating merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a company logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is frequently the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the focus on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Logo design for a software developer the layout attributes and also famous Saint Louis Park aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and drive management. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

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

I designed their Saint Louis Park business logo design with an image that seizes the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Saint Louis Park company logo style has actually a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo idea wasn’t actually developed for an Saint Louis Park area farm it was in reality developed for a products broker, and this particular creative logo was one of many that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was actually to generate a graphic that projects confidence, financial success, and opulence.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the freedom to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of recognizing where the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo created for using a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript typeface that is evocative a famous Saint Louis Park sporting activities group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed dozens of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking in which I worked closely with the owner to design a business logo that worked really 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 illuminated sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
