STRATEGIES FOR IDENTIFYING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design firm presents a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can’t reimburse the amount of time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but in the end a designer can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature real world examples odds are they won’t be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

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

ASPECTS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Lake Ronkonkoma entrepreneur knows they require a logo, however few new business owners entirely recognize the essential role their logo will perform in their becoming successful, or exactly why one business logo functions more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and sustaining effect on the success of a company, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Lake Ronkonkoma companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason 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 business cards to billboards a scalable logo will stay legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos which work 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 item or organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be lasting and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is both a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the process of noting something to ensure that it could be distinguished, its foundation comes from the brand branded onto livestock. These days a brand symbolizes virtually anything with an intention, regardless if it be profit or political parties, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the value of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are each from the same family, the difference 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 strategic popularity contest targeted at a target audience, it’s goal is to produce a mental image that the audience can relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone states the brand names Porsche or Corvette 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 move us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals buy those products. Brand image is why people purchase most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the beginning of a lot of branding agencies you’ll discover that they are often re-branded advertising firms. When somebody states 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 listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that concentrates on a type of visual design which helps form the perception of a business, a product or a business. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral material such as business cards, stationery, as well as pamphlets. Some identity designers also develop web sites and also software interfaces. The essential function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and also a psychological tone with the goal of affecting actions, outcomes as well as perceptions.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Lake Ronkonkoma coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually launching in an older section of the town and really wanted to cast a vintage atmosphere without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks via designing a sign concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo design with a microscope slide and also germs created for Lake Ronkonkoma medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which deals with the laboratory evaluation of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is really the sole instance I call to mind where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, but it does it in a way 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 enhancement to the name that helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a family enjoyable center in Lake Ronkonkoma.

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

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo 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 title itself to provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy impression.

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

digital photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Lake Ronkonkoma 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 specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead reveal emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories through 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 often have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with mere words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design by utilizing 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  Lake Ronkonkoma 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.

 Lake Ronkonkoma logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design jobs that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A but my customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his contempt for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced assessments on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they loved the design 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo realize how important a logo is for their business so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo job has it’s allotment of challenges, however the largest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, design for Lake Ronkonkoma publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, however it really is the most essential part of a published book given that it is often the first thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publisher, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever get to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo developed for an airline 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 but it seems like that in many instances 1 of the items folks usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a spirit of air travel and it was definitely a winner.

 Lake Ronkonkoma logo style utilized for advertising as well as a label layout for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for music instruments, which seemed to be antique cases. For this brand concept I sought to come up with a logo that offered a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be used for every thing from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different point in time.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Lake Ronkonkoma, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo jobs because it seems that virtually every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided 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 obvious, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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

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 folks in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be overly literal pertaining to 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 company or organization wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective 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 describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a Lake Ronkonkoma hair layout workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that conveyed a feeling of serenity and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious course of crafting just a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is generally the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the attention on the emotion that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian steed logo design created for an equine ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian show steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo crafted a one-of-a-kind organization logo concept customized to epitomize the unique physical traits of the Arabian kind of horses. By having a different head shape and very high tail posture, the Arabian is one of the most quite easily identifiable equine lineages in the entire world.

Logo layout for a software program designer the design functions and also renowned Lake Ronkonkoma 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). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and drive managing. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the owner of the company and in many cases the meaning supporting a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the company it represents.

Evolve logo style created for a Lake Ronkonkomainterior designer, design function a series of red circles that intersect as well as change the letter O in the middle of the logo design.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Lake Ronkonkoma business logo design featuring a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly recognized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell off their used items to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Lake Ronkonkoma business logo design utilizing an image that garners the interest of vehicles and sends an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Lake Ronkonkoma company logo layout has an area incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand idea wasn’t actually created for an Lake Ronkonkoma regional farm it was in reality created for a commodities broker, and this creative logo was one of multiple which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was to create a graphic that projected self-assurance, success, and luxury.

 Lake Ronkonkoma Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo design attribute for ostensibly facing arrow as well as the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design they preferred, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the liberty to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the very first try.

Logo developed for the use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font that is reminiscent of a popular Lake Ronkonkoma sports group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have created quite a lot of restaurant logos and business 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 think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked directly with the proprietor to design a logo design which worked very 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 which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
