STRATEGIES ON PICKING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a design agency can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not contain actual samples odds are they won’t be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s objective is to echo your personal vision for your business. If a logo designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

We have undertaken branding work for builders, schools, diamond miners, wedding singers, coffee roasters, retailers, and practically every other kind of business concern you can imagine.

American Made ★ Design

The thing that seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the design firms that you might possibly have stumbled upon in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are enlisted to do, we do in-house. Regardless of the type of design project we take on, brand identity design, website, trade show banners, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will job-out our client’s projects to contractors based outside the USA. Whenever you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that marks up the cost of your design project and determines the conditions of how we conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Every new Port Chester organization realizes that they need a logo, yet few start ups fully grasp the essential role their logo design can play in their success, or the reason that one logo design works far better than another. A logo design has an immediate and long-term influence on the growth of a business, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Port Chester businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require contemplation, they can be comprehended in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to store signs a scalable logo will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which 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 right, and they are suitable for the item or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and the act of denoting something to make sure that it can be distinguished, its foundation comes from the mark burned onto animals. Today a brand indicates practically anything with an intention, regardless if it be revenue or politics, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth 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 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 aimed at a specific audience, it’s goal is to produce a mental image that the target market will likely connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When a person mentions the names Lamborghini or Corvette what we consider 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 transport us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals want those products. Brand image is why individuals get specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the history of most branding firms you’ll discover that they are quite often re-branded marketing and advertising companies. When someone claims they are in advertising most people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that concentrates on a type of visual design that helps form the public image of a business, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, as well as collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some identity designers also build sites and user interfaces. The vital role of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the objective of influencing activities, outcomes and also perceptions.

select signs/logos

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Port Chester coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were opening up in an old section of town and hoped to visualize a vintage feel without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs via creating a trademark concept that uses 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 style with a microscope slide and germs designed for Port Chester medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which deals with the clinical examination of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Normally I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves fairly 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 name that makes it more captivating, more attention grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping green frog created for a household enjoyable facility in Port Chester.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually resonate 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 name itself to give the logo a better lively high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Port Chester travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche sector because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather project emotional experiences through the photos they record. 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 quintessential of most professional photographers in that they often convey 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 conveyed with mere 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Port Chester logo but also to illustrate the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Port Chester logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design projects that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A but my client, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage them to discuss it with colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get impartial assessments on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they really loved the design 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo design realize how important a logo is for their business so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo project possesses it’s share of obstacles, but the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, style for Port Chester book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, but it really is the most important part of a printed book because it is ordinarily the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will ever get to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it seems like that in many occurrences one of the traits folks tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a sense of flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Port Chester logo layout made use of for advertising and a label design for Vintage Instance includes an archaic font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for musical instruments, that looked to be antique cases. For this logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid vintage feel to it and could be used for everything from a website to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another point in time.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Port Chester, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects considering that it seems that every dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design 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 care profession.

I really enjoy doing dentistry logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular area 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 design that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities surprised in height to represent a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to describe specifically how people should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo style developed for a Port Chester hair layout studio including a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo which conveyed a spirit of peace and class for their new hair studio. I created a concept that did not go the obvious route of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo design which suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is oftentimes the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the emphasis on the emotion that they wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian steed logo design created for a steed ranch that specializes in reproducing Arabian program horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Cafe logo layout a small dining establishment, design contains a customized script font style which hovers over a group of elaborate lines and also dots.

Logo design for a software developer the design attributes as well as renowned Port Chester 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 management, process and task control, and disk management. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge in between the software and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it represented something to the owner of the business and in many cases the meaning behind a business logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

Advance logo design produced for a Port Chesterindoor developer, layout function a series of red circles that converge and also replace the letter O in the center of the logo design.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Port Chester business logo style featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly knew the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a place to sell off their used items to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Port Chester business logo design using an image that seizes the attention of vehicles and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Port Chester company logo layout has actually a field included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem idea wasn’t really developed for an Port Chester regional farm it was in reality designed for an investments broker, and this trademark was one of several which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to develop a image that projects self-confidence, success, and prosperity.

 Port Chester Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo style attribute for outwardly facing arrow and the arrowheads imply that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design that they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides 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 knowing where the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I nailed a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo design developed for using an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is similar to a popular Port Chester sports group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have created loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked directly with the business owner to design a business logo which worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
