TIPS ON SELECTING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be judged from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain real life samples odds are they will never be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

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

American Made ★ Design

Something which seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the design firms that you might have stumbled upon in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are brought on board to do, we do ourselves. No matter the kind of design project we take on, business logo, business website, trade show exhibition, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will job out our customer’s work to agencies based outside the US. Whenever you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the price of your project and imposes the terms of how my customers and I conduct business.

ASPECTS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Monroe business realizes that they probably need a logo, yet few start-ups entirely understand the essential role their logo design can play in their success, or precisely why one logo design functions better than another. A logo design has an instant and long-term impact on the viability of a company, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Monroe businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need deliberation, they can be understood in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to billboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and equally emotive at any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel personal, and they are suitable for the product or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark as well as the act of noting something to ensure that it could be distinguished, its genesis comes from the mark burned onto livestock. These days a brand symbolizes basically anything with an intention, regardless if it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are all from the exact same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest targeted at a target audience, it’s objective is to create an image that the audience can connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person says the names Ferrari or Mustang 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 the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals want those brands. Brand image is why people acquire specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the origin of most branding firms you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded advertising companies. When somebody states they are in advertising and marketing the majority of people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that specializes in a type of visual design that helps shape the public image of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and also collateral products such as cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some visual designers also build web sites and software interfaces. The necessary role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the objective of affecting actions, end results as well as assumptions.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Monroe coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were opening up in an older part of town and hoped to cast a nostalgic feel without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled each of the 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 design with a microscopic lense slide and also germs designed for Monroe medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which works with the clinical examination of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Typically I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents rather 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 helps make it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a family fun facility in Monroe.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental experts, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that 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 include a couple of springs into the concept 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 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 title itself to give the logo a more dynamic high energy mood.

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

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - made for Monroe travel 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 specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead convey emotional journeys through the photos they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with just words. I tried to do something comparable to this logo design by using 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Monroe logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Monroe logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however the customer 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 my customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral opinions on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they adored 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 choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo design recognize how vital a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s portion of challenges, however the greatest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required 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, design for Monroe book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, however it is the most crucial part of a published book considering that it is in most cases the first thing a person sees in the book store. Concerning a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will likely ever get to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems that in many occurrences one of the items individuals usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle airline company situated 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 title lent itself well to affording a good sense of air travel and it was definitely a victory.

 Monroe logo style utilized for marketing and a label layout for Vintage Case includes an old-fashioned typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for musical instruments, that appeared to be antique cases. For this custom logo design I tried to come up with a logo that provided a fluid old style feel to it and could be used for anything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from another point in time.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Monroe, design include an arc with lines converging via it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design projects due to the fact that it appears that each and every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo but 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 enjoy doing dentist logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a layout that does not 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 design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family nonprofit, the logo design 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 logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered 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 wishes to communicate.

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

Logo style created for a Monroe hair style studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design which communicated a spirit of relaxation and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious direction of making just a stylized orchid but rather delivered a company logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is oftentimes the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the focus on the emotion that they wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian steed logo layout created for a steed ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo crafted a distinct brand design styled to symbolize the unique physical traits of the Arabian kind of equines. By having a different head shape and higher tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the most easily identifiable horse breeds in the whole world.

Las Cafe logo design a tiny dining establishment, design includes a changed manuscript font which hovers above a group of elaborate lines and also dots.

Logo design for a software program designer the layout attributes as well as iconic Monroe element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated 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. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it serves the company it represents.

Develop logo style produced for a Monroeindoor developer, layout feature a series of red circles that intersect and replace the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

A Monroe business logo layout including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly understood the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to sell off their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Monroe logo design design with a graphic that garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Monroe company logo style has an area integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo concept wasn’t really designed for an Monroe area farm it was actually devised for a commodities broker, and this brand was one of multiple that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to create a graphic that projects self-assurance, effectiveness, and opulence.

 Monroe Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo layout attribute for ostensibly encountering arrow as well as the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the liberty to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without realizing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo design created for making use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font style that is similar to a famous Monroe sports group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created quite a lot of restaurant logo designs 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 think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project where I worked directly with the owner to design a business logo that worked extremely 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 illuminated signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
