STRATEGIES FOR SELECTING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design company offers a money back guarantee try to remember that they simply cannot reimburse the amount of time you commit which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

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

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and remembered, and it’s goal is to reflect your personal vision for your business. If a designer isn’t focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how soon they will get paid.

We’ve performed logo design work for ranchers, educational institutions, diamond miners, wedding singers, coffee roasters, retail stores, and virtually every other kind of business concern you can envision.

The thing that seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the design agencies that you probably have stumbled upon on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are retained to perform, we perform in-house.

ASPECTS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Every new Fort Bragg organization realizes that they require a logo, but few start ups entirely grasp the essential role their organization’s logo will perform in their financial success, or the reason that one business logo functions better than another. A logo has an instant and long-term effect on the success of a company, go with the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Fort Bragg businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need consideration, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo will stay legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any 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 company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of noting something so that it could be recognized, its origin originates from the mark branded onto livestock. Nowadays a brand symbolizes virtually anything with a motive, whether it be revenue or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the value of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive cousin, they are all from the very same family, the distinction 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 targeted at a target market, it’s goal is to produce an image that the target market will identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody states the brand names Lamborghini or Mustang what we think of is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a vehicle with 4 wheels that can deliver 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 individuals purchase those products. 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 Agencies – If you look back at the history of a lot of branding firms you’ll find that they are quite often rebranded advertising and marketing agencies. When someone states they are in advertising and marketing most people will likely have an idea about what they do. But when someone states “I am in branding”… it just sounds much more attractive, maybe it’s since the majority of people don’t recognize what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and maybe even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that describes the visual elements of a product or business that influence understandings. This mostly consists of the name, the logo, the product packaging, the colors utilized yet can additionally consist of sound, illumination, texture, signs, actually anything that can be seen, touched or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that focuses on a kind of visual design that helps form the public image of a firm, a product or a business. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as pamphlets. Some visual designers also develop web sites and also user interfaces. The important function of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and also a psychological tone with the objective of affecting actions, end results as well as assumptions.

select logos & signs

Retro logo style of a bike created for a Fort Bragg coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee bar were launching in an old part of the community and wished to visualize a nostalgic vibe without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished both jobs by creating a company 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 style with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria made for Fort Bragg medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which works with the laboratory evaluation of samplings of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very 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 an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more appealing, more focus grabbing and much more memorable.

logo design with a jumping eco-friendly frog designed for a family enjoyable center in Fort Bragg.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 norm of the types of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really resonate an environment 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better dynamic 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 advertising. I also believe 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.

photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - created for Fort Bragg 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 rather niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they often share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo design by employing 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  Fort Bragg logo but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Fort Bragg logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment 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 form as a stroke in the letter A but my client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really liked 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo recognize how crucial a logo design is for their business so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo design project possesses it’s share of difficulties, but the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Fort Bragg publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, yet it is the most vital part of a printed book since it is in most cases the very first thing a person views in the book shop. With regard to a publisher, it’s the opportunity they will ever have to spotlight their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

This three color design is vivid, colorful and eye-catching and it gives plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo design created for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with the bars customized to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it seems that in many cases one of the items individuals often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a winner.

 Fort Bragg logo layout used for advertising and marketing and also a tag style for Vintage Instance features an old typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be vintage cases. For this custom logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid retro feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web site to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another point in time.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Fort Bragg, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects considering that it appears that every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo but 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 dental profession.

I actually love doing dental logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo made for a household nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in elevation to stand for a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed 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 tries to use the logo design to illustrate how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal 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 instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a Fort Bragg hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design that carried a sense of peace and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious route of creating merely a stylized orchid but rather delivered a business logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is usually the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the importance on the emotion that they wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian steed logo layout developed for an equine cattle ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian show steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software program developer the design attributes and iconic Fort Bragg element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive operations. The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection in between the software and hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple of miles from the business 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 business owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism supporting a company logo is equally as important as how it serves the company it represents.

Develop logo design developed for a Fort Bragginterior designer, design attribute a series of red circles that intersect and change the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Fort Bragg business logo style 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 brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly understood the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to sell their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Fort Bragg logo design along with a graphic that captures the attention of traffic and sends an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Fort Bragg company logo design has a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo design wasn’t really created for an Fort Bragg area farm it was in reality developed for a products broker, and this particular company logo was one of multiple which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was actually to create a brand mark that projected assurance, success, and affluence.

 Fort Bragg Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo style feature for outwardly dealing with arrow as well as the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design that they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the flexibility to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the first try.

Logo design made for making use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is evocative a popular Fort Bragg sporting activities team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created quite a lot of restaurant logos and establishment 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 believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked directly with the owner to create a logo design that worked really 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 lighted sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
