POINTERS FOR DETERMINING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but inevitably a designer can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t contain actual samples chances are they will not be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

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

We’ve done branding work for mechanics, schools, diamond miners, party planners, coffee roasters, retailers, and virtually every other kind of business you can think of.

Our sign first technique ensures that our logo designs are equally successful whether they are used in television commercials or website applications, they are consistently recognizable, comprehended, and always remembered irrespective of scale or application.

American Made ★ Design

Something which truly sets ImageCo apart from other design firms that you might have come across online, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every project we are hired to perform, we perform in-house. Irrespective of the type of design project we undertake, business logo, website, trade show display, or electric sign, we do not, and never will job-out our customer’s projects to 3rd parties located outside the US. Whenever you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that marks up the cost of your design project and imposes the conditions of how we do business.

QUALITIES OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Woodbury entrepreneur understands that they require a logo, but few start ups entirely recognize the crucial role their logo can make in their success, or precisely why one business logo works far better than another. A logo design has an instant and long-term impact on the financial success of a business, select the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Woodbury companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require deliberation, they can be understood in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to store signs a scalable business logo will be legible and just as emotive at every dimension.
  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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the product or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the process of denoting something to ensure that it can be recognized, its genesis comes from the mark burned onto livestock. Nowadays a brand symbolizes basically anything with an objective, whether it be earnings or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the value of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy 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 calculated popularity contest targeted at a target market, it’s objective is to create an image that the target market will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody mentions the brand names Lamborghini or Corvette what we think of 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, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes people buy those brands. Brand image is why individuals buy most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the origin of many branding agencies you’ll find that they are often re-branded marketing companies. When someone states they are in advertising most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps shape the perception of a business, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some identity designers also build web sites and also software interfaces. The important function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and also a psychological tone with the goal of affecting actions, outcomes and assumptions.

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Woodbury coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening up in an older part of the community and hoped to cast a nostalgic tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved both of these jobs by designing a business logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and germs developed for Woodbury clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that deals with the clinical assessment of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recall where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents very literally, yet it does it in a way 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 enhancer to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping green frog created for a family fun facility in Woodbury.

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 also a project that is way out of the usual of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a handful of 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title 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 incorporated him in to everything they utilized for marketing and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Woodbury travel 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 pretty niche field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather project emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes share entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be communicated with mere words. I tried to do something similar 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Woodbury logo but also to show the depth of her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Woodbury logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I seriously savor 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 idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A however my client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial opinions on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they really liked the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to incorporate every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo recognize how vital a logo design is for their organization so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo project has it’s allotment of challenges, but the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Woodbury book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, but it really is the most necessary part of a published book given that it is ordinarily the primary thing a person views in the book store. Regarding a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will likely ever have to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

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

Air LA logo design designed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with the bars modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it seems that in many instances 1 of the items consumers usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a good sense of flight and it was certainly a victory.

 Woodbury logo style made use of for marketing and a tag design for Vintage Instance includes an archaic font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for musical instruments, that looked to be vintage cases. For this custom logo concept I sought to come up with a logo that provided a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could easily be used for anything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another era.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Woodbury, layout include an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs due to the fact that it seems that almost every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo 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 profession.

I actually love doing dentistry logo designs 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 stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities surprised in height to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs 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 provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that explains itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a Woodbury hair design 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 needed a logo that communicated a sense of ease and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which did not go the obvious direction of crafting merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo that suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is in most cases the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the emphasis on the feeling that they wanted to project to their clients.

Logo design for a software program developer the design attributes and famous Woodbury aspect 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 administration, process and task control, 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 operates as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it meant something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance behind a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

Progress logo style produced for a Woodburyindoor developer, design function a collection of red circles that converge and replace the letter O in the center of the logo design.

A Woodbury business logo style including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to market their secondhand equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Woodbury business logo design utilizing a graphic that pulls in the attention of traffic and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Woodbury company logo layout has a field integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo design wasn’t really composed for an Woodbury area farm it was in reality created for a products broker, and this company was one of multiple which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was to make a brand mark that projected confidence, success, and luxury.

 Woodbury Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo style function for ostensibly encountering arrow as well as the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby form.

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 provides a designer the opportunity to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the first try.

Logo made for the use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is evocative a renowned Woodbury sporting activities team logo.

I’ve created dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking in which I worked closely with the business owner to create a logo design 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 illuminated signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
