STRATEGIES ON PICKING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature actual examples chances are they will never be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to mirror your unique vision for your organization. If a logo designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they can get paid.

For over twenty years ImageCo has been helping business owners grow notable brand identities. We’ve undertaken brand identity design work for ranchers, colleges, heart surgeons, party planners, bistros, retail stores, and just about every other kind of business you can imagine.

Our sign first approach insures that our logo designs are just as reliable whether they are used in television commercials or web applications, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and always remembered no matter of size or use.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference that truly sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you probably have encountered on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are contracted to do, we perform ourselves. Irrespective of the kind of project we take on, brand identity design, business website, trade show exhibition, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will job out our client’s projects to contractors located outside the USA. When you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a go-between that increases the cost of your project and dictates the terms of how my customers and I do business.

QUALITIES OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Port Richmond organization understands that they probably need a logo, however few new business owners fully understand the vital role their logo design will perform in their success, or the reason that one business logo functions more effectively than another. A company logo has a critical and long term impact on the growth of a company, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Port Richmond companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require deliberation, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to store signs a scalable logo will remain legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any sort of device, in print, on 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 brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the act of denoting something to ensure that it could be identified, its origin originates from the brand branded onto animals. Today a brand symbolizes pretty much anything with an intention, regardless if it be earnings or political parties, 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 sister, they are all from the very same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest aimed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to create an image that the audience can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and identity design. When a person mentions the names Lamborghini 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 a car with 4 wheels that can move 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 want those brands. Brand image is why people get most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the origin of many branding agencies you’ll discover that they are quite often rebranded advertising and marketing companies. When a person states they are in marketing lots of people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. But when somebody says “I’m in branding”… it just seems much more impressive, possibly it’s due to the fact that many people do not understand what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and kind of attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that explains the visual aspects of a product or business that influence perceptions. This primarily consists of the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the different colors used however can additionally include audio, lights, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, felt or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers

Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, as well as brochures.

select logos & signs

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were launching in an older part of town and wished to project a retro feel without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled both tasks by means of creating a trademark concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and also germs developed for Port Richmond medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the field of healthcare which works with the clinical assessment of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom 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.

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather literally, however it does it in a way that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that helps make it more appealing, more focus grabbing and more memorable.

logo layout with a jumping green frog developed for a family enjoyable center in Port Richmond.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool 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 usual of the kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental experts, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not really resonate an atmosphere 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 more lively high energy feel.

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

digital photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Port Richmond traveling 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 pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead convey emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they often convey entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with mere words. I tried to do something the same to this logo design 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Port Richmond logo design but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Port Richmond logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business 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 excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A but the client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy truly loathed 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 particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to share it with colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get objective judgements on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they adored 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their business logo realize how crucial a logo is for their organization so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of hurdles, however the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, but it really is the most essential part of a printed book considering that it is often the initial thing a person views in the bookstore. Concerning a publisher, it’s the best opportunity that they will likely ever get to promote their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems that in many instances 1 of the traits folks tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a sense of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

 Port Richmond logo design made use of for marketing as well as a label design for Vintage Instance includes an antiquated font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be antique cases. For this logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could easily be used for every thing from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another era.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Port Richmond, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo design projects considering that it appears that each and every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

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

I really love doing dental care logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and eventually I created a design that doesn’t 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 concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family members not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities startled in elevation to represent a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be far too literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a Port Richmond hair design workshop including a script font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design which communicated an atmosphere of calmness and class for their new hair studio. I created a design which did not go the obvious course of creating merely a stylized orchid but instead designed a logo design that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is frequently the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the emphasis on the emotion that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Logo style for a software program designer the design functions and legendary Port Richmond aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and disk managing. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection 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 located a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism behind a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the business it stands for.

A Port Richmond business logo layout featuring an angler in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

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

I tailored their Port Richmond business logo design with an image that pulls in the interest of traffic and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 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 calm habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Port Richmond company logo design has actually a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t actually designed for an Port Richmond regional farm it was really developed for a commodities broker, and this particular company was one of a handful of which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was to design an identity that projected trust, effectiveness, and affluence.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design that they desired, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the flexibility to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of recognizing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo designed for using an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is similar to a well-known Port Richmond sporting activities team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed dozens of restaurant logo designs and business 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 believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked directly with the owner to produce a logo design which worked really 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 neon signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
