TIPS ON DETERMINING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they simply cannot refund the amount of 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 evaluated from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain actual examples chances are they will never be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

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

Savage LOGO DESIGN​

For over twenty years ImageCo has been helping entrepreneurs grow unforgettable brand identities. We’ve undertaken logo design work for farmers, universities, heart surgeons, party planners, bistros, retail stores, and practically every other kind of business concern you can think of. What makes ImageCo different compared to traditional designers is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every logo design project as though it will be employed as an electric sign. Because of our sign first method our identity designs can, and have been used in everything from clothing labels to electrical signs. Our sign first method ensures that our logos are just as reliable whether they are used in TV commercials or website apps, they are consistently recognizable, understood, and always remembered no matter of size or use.

American Made ★ Design

Something which truly sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you might possibly have found on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are retained to do, we perform in-house. Irrespective of the kind of design project we undertake, logo, web site, trade show exhibit, or electrical sign, we do not, and never will farm-out our client’s work to companies located outside the United States. When you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a broker that marks up the price of your project and dictates the conditions of how my customers and I conduct business.

ASPECTS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Every new Savage business understands that they require a logo, however few start-ups entirely realize the pivotal role their organization’s logo can play in their financial success, or the reason that one logo design works more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and long-term impact on the growth of a company, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Savage companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable business logo will stay legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 right, and they are suitable for the product or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of noting something so that it can be distinguished, its foundation comes from the brand branded onto livestock. These days a brand indicates pretty much anything with an objective, regardless of whether it be profit or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive sister, they are both from the 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 strategic popularity contest aimed at a target market, it’s goal is to develop a mental image that the target market can connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody states the names Lamborghini or Mustang what we consider 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 transport us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals purchase those brands. Brand image is why individuals identify with most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the origin of a lot of branding companies you’ll find that they are often re-branded marketing and advertising firms. When somebody says they are in marketing lots of people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. However when somebody says “I am in branding”… it simply sounds much more attractive, maybe it’s because the majority of people do not fully understand what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and kind of attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that explains the visual components of a product or business that affect perceptions. This primarily includes the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the colors used yet can likewise consist of sound, illumination, texture, signs, really 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 focuses on a kind of visual design that helps shape the perception of a company, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, and also sales brochures. Some visual designers also develop web sites and also user interfaces. The vital role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the goal of influencing activities, end results and also perceptions.

select logos & signs

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Savage coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening in an old part of the area and wished to cast a retro tone without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled both tasks by means of developing a company logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and also bacteria developed for Savage clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the triggers and effects of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that works with the clinical examination of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Typically I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents 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 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 even more memorable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a family enjoyable facility in Savage.

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

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an environment 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 dynamic high energy feel.

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

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Savage travel digital 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead project emotional journeys through the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently share entire 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 which can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Savage logo but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Savage logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really 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 silhouette as a stroke in the letter A but the client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members did not share his aversion for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get objective viewpoints on the value of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really liked 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their business logo recognize how important a logo design is for their company so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo design project has it’s share of hurdles, but the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Savage publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, but it really is the most necessary part of a printed book given that it is usually the primary thing a person views in the book shop. For a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will ever get to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems like that in many occurrences one of the items consumers often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a spirit of air travel and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 Savage logo style utilized for marketing and a label design for Vintage Case features an old typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be vintage cases. For this business logo design I strove to come up with a logo that provided a fluid retro feel to it and could be used for everything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different era.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Savage, style include an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo design projects because it appears that virtually every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo 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 really enjoy doing dentistry logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design made for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in elevation to represent a family unit with in the design.

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 love that William McNally had for the people 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 very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to explain how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout created for a Savage hair design workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo which carried a spirit of tranquility and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept which did not go the obvious direction of making just a stylized orchid but instead delivered a logo design which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is generally the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the focus on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian equine logo design produced for an equine ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian program horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo developed a one-of-a-kind logo concept customized to manifest the unique physical traits of the Arabian breed of horses. With an unique head form and higher tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the very most easily recognizable horse types in the whole world.

Las Cafe logo style a little restaurant, layout includes a changed manuscript font which floats above a team of elaborate lines as well as dots.

Logo layout for a software developer the design features and legendary Savage element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk operations. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection in 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 few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it intimated something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

Advance logo layout created for a Savageindoor developer, layout attribute a series of red circles that converge as well as change the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

A Savage business logo layout including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly recognized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a spot to market their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Savage logo design along with an image that captures the attention of traffic and sends an image that arouses 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 picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Savage company logo layout has a field integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem design wasn’t actually designed for an Savage regional farm it was really developed for an investments broker, and this trademark was one of many which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was actually to create a image that projected self-assurance, effectiveness, and luxury.

 Savage Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo design function for ostensibly dealing with arrow as well as the arrowheads imply 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 wanted, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the freedom to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I nailed a bullseye with the first go.

Logo design developed for using an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript typeface that is evocative a renowned Savage sporting activities team logo.

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 believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked directly with the owner to create 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 illuminated sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
