TIPS ON CHOOSING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design firm offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can’t reimburse the time you invest which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but ultimately a designer can only be judged from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature real life samples odds are they won’t be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to reflect your unique vision for your business. If a designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they can get paid.

QUALITIES OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Valley Stream business understands that they need a logo, yet few start ups fully grasp the vital role their organization’s logo will perform in their financial success, or precisely why one logo works more effectively than another. A logo design has an instant and long-term influence on the viability of a company, select the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Valley Stream companies prosper, 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 don’t require consideration, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be ageless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and the process of noting something to make sure that it can be recognized, its foundation comes from the mark burned onto animals. Nowadays a brand symbolizes basically anything with an objective, regardless of whether it be profit or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the value of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are all from the same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition aimed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to create an image that the audience will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody mentions the names Lamborghini or Mustang what we think about is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car with 4 wheels that can carry us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals buy those brands. Brand image is why people identify with specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you reflect on the history of the majority of branding agencies you’ll find that they are quite often re-branded advertising agencies. When a person says they are in marketing many people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps shape the perception of a company, a product or a business. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and brochures. Some identity designers also build websites and user interfaces. The essential duty of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the goal of influencing actions, outcomes and assumptions.

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were opening in an old section of the community and hoped to project a nostalgic vibe without coming across as boring or low energy. I accomplished the two tasks by means of creating a trademark concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and also germs designed for Valley Stream medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that works with the clinical examination of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Normally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, however it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 brand that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog designed for a household enjoyable facility in Valley Stream.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 types 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 one and only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they used for promotion and 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 just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for Valley Stream travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead reveal emotional experiences by means of the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of 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 often convey entire stories using 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 frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something similar to this logo by utilizing 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Valley Stream logo design but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Valley Stream logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I genuinely relish 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 concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A but the client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his aversion for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get impartial opinions on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they really loved the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to insert every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo understand how crucial a logo design is for their business so they are way more vested in the final result. Every logo design job has it’s share of hurdles, but the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Valley Stream publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, however it really is the most important part of a published book since it is usually the first thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity they will ever have to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books.

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

Air LA logo developed for an airline company 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 arrive and depart however it seems like that in many occurrences one of the things consumers often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a spirit of flight and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 Valley Stream logo style used for advertising and marketing as well as a tag design for Vintage Case includes an archaic font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be older cases. For this logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid old style feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Valley Stream, design include an arc with lines converging through it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related 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 industry.

I really 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 particular area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo created for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters startled 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 brand identity design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures 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 downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to illustrate exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style developed for a Valley Stream hair design workshop including a script font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo which related a spirit of ease and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a design which did not go the obvious route of making merely a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is more often than not the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the emphasis on the emotion that they wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian equine logo style developed for a horse cattle ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software program developer the layout functions and famous Valley Stream component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel attaches 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 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 explain anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the meaning behind a company logo is just as important as how it brands the company it stands for.

Advance logo layout created for a Valley Streaminterior designer, design feature a collection of red circles that intersect as well as change the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Valley Stream business logo design 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 offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly recognized the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a location to sell off their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Valley Stream logo design design along with an illustration which seizes the attention of vehicles and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Valley Stream company logo layout has actually a field included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo concept wasn’t actually composed for an Valley Stream regional farm it was really developed for a products broker, and this particular logo was one of a handful of which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to develop a graphic that projected trust, success, and affluence.

 Valley Stream Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo design attribute for externally 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 they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the opportunity to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo design designed for using an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font style that is similar to a famous Valley Stream sporting activities group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked closely with the owner to design a logo which worked extremely well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked 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 legible from over a block away.
