TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design firm offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they simply cannot refund the amount of time you commit which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a designer can only be evaluated from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not contain real life examples chances are they will never be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s goal is to reflect your personal vision for your organization. If a designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they will get paid.

Eden LOGO DESIGN​

For over 2 decades ImageCo has been helping businesses of all kinds cultivate notable brands. We have done brand design work for farmers, educational institutions, heart surgeons, wedding singers, coffee roasters, retail stores, and practically every other kind of business concern you can think of. What makes us unique compared to typical graphic designers is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every design as though it will be employed as an electric sign. As a result of our sign first method our identity designs can, and have been employed in everything from clothing labels to electrical signs. Our sign first technique insures that our logo designs are equally effective whether they are used in television commercials or web headers, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and always remembered regardless of size or application.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which truly sets ImageCo apart from other design firms that you might have encountered in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are contracted to perform, we do in-house. Regardless of the type of project we undertake, business logo, website, trade show display, or electric sign, we do not, and never will farm-out our customer’s projects to companies based outside the US. Whenever you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the price of your project and imposes the terms of how my customers and I conduct business.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Eden business realizes that they need a logo, yet few start-ups fully understand the crucial role their organization’s logo will play in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo performs more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and long-term influence on the growth of a company, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Eden companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require deliberation, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable logo design will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any device, in print, on product 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 brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be ageless 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 can be distinguished, its foundation originates from the mark branded onto livestock. These days a brand signifies pretty much anything with a motive, whether it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s attractive cousin, they are each from the very same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition targeted at a target audience, it’s goal is to create a mental image that the audience will likely identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody states the names Lamborghini or Corvette what we think of 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 carry us from point A to point B, the 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 people want those brands. Brand image is why people purchase most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the beginning of a lot of branding firms you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded advertising companies. When someone claims they are in advertising most people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a designer that focuses on a kind of visual design that helps form the image of a company, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and also sales brochures. Some visual designers also develop websites as well as user interfaces. The essential role of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the goal of affecting activities, outcomes and understandings.

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Eden coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were opening up in an old section of the city and really wanted to project a retro atmosphere without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled both tasks by means of designing a business logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs designed for Eden clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that deals with the laboratory evaluation of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is really the sole instance I remember where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, yet 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 brand that helps make it more appealing, more attention grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping environment-friendly frog developed for a family fun facility in Eden.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy feel.

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

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - created for Eden traveling professional 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead project emotional journeys through the images they capture. The thought 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 the majority of professional photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand 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 just words. I attempted to do something similar 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Eden logo but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Eden logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however the client 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 character A but the customer, 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”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get objective assessments on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about 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 proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo understand how essential a logo design is for their business so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s allotment of obstacles, however the largest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Eden book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin segment of real estate to work with, but it really is the most essential part of a printed book due to the fact that it is in most cases the first thing a person views in the book store. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will likely ever get to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it looks like that in many cases 1 of the things individuals often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a spirit of air travel and it was surely a victory.

 Eden logo design used for advertising and marketing and a tag style for Vintage Instance includes an antiquated font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for musical instruments, which looked to be much older cases. For this logo concept I sought to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid old style feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web page to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Eden, design include an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs considering that it seems that every single dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless 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 dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters staggered in height to stand for a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy 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 concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to explain precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you 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 design that describes itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a Eden hair layout studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a company logo which related a spirit of tranquility and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious route of crafting simply a stylized orchid but rather crafted a company logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is frequently the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the attention on the emotion that they wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo style developed for an equine cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian program horses.

Logo style for a software application developer the design features as well as famous Eden element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and drive management. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge between the software program and 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 to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the meaning supporting a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the company it stands for.

Progress logo style developed for a Edeninterior designer, design feature a series of red circles that converge and also change the letter O in the middle of the logo design.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Eden business logo layout featuring an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to market their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Eden logo design design with an image which seizes the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this Eden company logo layout has a field included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo concept wasn’t really designed for an Eden regional farm it was in reality created for a products broker, and this brand was one of multiple which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to produce a image that projected self-assurance, financial success, and wealth.

 Eden Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo design attribute for externally dealing with arrowhead and also the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design that they preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the opportunity to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st shot.

Logo created for the use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font that is evocative a famous Eden sporting activities team logo.

I’ve designed quite a lot of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake pastry shops 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 closely with the owner to design a business logo 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 neon signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
