POINTERS ON DETERMINING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design company presents a money back guarantee try to remember that they can not refund the time you invest which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but in the end a design firm can only be judged by the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t contain real life samples odds are they will never be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

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

Vicksburg LOGO DESIGN​

For over two decades ImageCo has been helping start ups and entrepreneurs grow notable brands. We have undertaken branding work for ranchers, schools, heart surgeons, party planners, diners, retail stores, and virtually every other kind of business 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 branding project as though it will be utilized as an electrical sign. As a result of our sign first method our identity designs can, and have been employed in everything from garment labels to billboards. Our sign first technique insures that our logo designs are equally successful whether they are used in television commercials or web applications, they are consistently recognizable, understood, and always remembered regardless of size or purpose.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which truly sets ImageCo apart from many of the design companies that you probably have found in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are brought on board to perform, we do in-house. Regardless of the kind of project we accept, business logo, web site, trade show display, or retail sign, we do not, and never will job-out our client’s projects to contractors located outside the US. When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the price of your design project and dictates the terms of how we do business.

ASPECTS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Vicksburg entrepreneur realizes that they probably need a logo, yet few start ups fully understand the pivotal role their organization’s logo can perform in their financial success, or exactly why one logo design performs far better than another. A company logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the growth of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Vicksburg businesses 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 logos do not require contemplation, they can be comprehended in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to store signs a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which work on any 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 item or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb and also a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the act of noting something to ensure that it can be distinguished, its foundation originates from the mark burned onto animals. Today a brand signifies virtually anything with an intention, whether it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the worth of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

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

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and identity design. When a person states the brand names Ferrari or Mustang what we consider is their brand image, it’s an image that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of an automobile with 4 wheels that can deliver us from point A to point B, the 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 buy those brands. Brand image is why individuals get specific brands, 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 history of a lot of branding companies you’ll find that they are frequently rebranded marketing and advertising firms. When someone says they are in advertising and marketing lots of people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps form the public image of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and collateral products such as business cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some visual designers also develop websites and also user interfaces. The important duty of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of influencing actions, results as well as understandings.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Vicksburg coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening in an older section of town and wished to project a vintage atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I achieved both tasks via designing a logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria made for Vicksburg medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which investigates the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which works with the clinical evaluation of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is really the only instance I remember in which I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, however it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 name that helps make it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members fun center in Vicksburg.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental experts, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy feeling.

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

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - created for Vicksburg traveling digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather reveal emotional experiences through the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently tell whole stories using 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 often have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo by making use of 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Vicksburg logo design but also to illustrate the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Vicksburg logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I really savor and the Coastal Wireless project 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 concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A but my customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his scorn for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get honest point of views on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they loved 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 include every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo realize how essential a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo job has it’s share of obstacles, however 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 company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, layout for Vicksburg publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped parcel of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most essential part of a published book since it is ordinarily the primary thing a person views in the book store. With respect to a publisher, it’s the best opportunity they will ever have to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

This three color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart however it looks like that in many instances one of the aspects folks tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest fledgling commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a spirit of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

 Vicksburg logo layout utilized for advertising and a tag style for Vintage Instance features an old font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be much older cases. For this logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that provided a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a website to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Vicksburg, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs considering that it appears that each and every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably include an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an image 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout that does not have a solitary 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 design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a household not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent a family 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 illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed 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 makes an effort to use the logo to illustrate precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo style produced for a Vicksburg hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo that projected a sense of peace and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious path of making merely a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a business logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is usually the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the focus on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Logo style for a software program designer the design features and also iconic Vicksburg element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk managing. The kernel links the system 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 and computer hardware.

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

A Vicksburg business logo design including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly understood the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell off their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Vicksburg logo design using an illustration that pulls in the attention of vehicles and sends an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized 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 peaceful habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Vicksburg company logo layout has actually an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand idea wasn’t actually designed for an Vicksburg area farm it was in reality created for a products broker, and this particular logo was one of several that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was to design an identity that projects trust, success, and prosperity.

 Vicksburg Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo design attribute for outwardly encountering arrowhead as well as the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the opportunity to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the first try.

Logo design created for using an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is similar to a popular Vicksburg sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked directly with the business owner to design a logo design which worked extremely well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
