STRATEGIES FOR DETERMINING 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 precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but ultimately a designer can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain actual examples chances are they won’t be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s objective is to reflect your unique vision for your business. If a logo designer isn’t focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they will get paid.

Dickinson LOGO DESIGN​

For over two decades ImageCo has been helping businesses of all kinds grow notable brand identities. We’ve performed branding work for builders, universities, heart surgeons, party planners, coffee roasters, retailers, and practically every other kind of business you can think of. What makes ImageCo different compared to typical graphic designers is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we undertake every brand identity project as if it will be used as an electrical sign. As a result of our sign first method our logo designs can, and have been used in everything from clothing labels to billboards. Our sign first approach guarantees that our logos are just as successful whether they are used in TV commercials or web applications, they are consistently recognizable, comprehended, and remembered regardless of size or use.

American Made ★ Design

The thing which seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design firms that you might possibly have stumbled upon in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are contracted to perform, we perform in-house. No matter the type of design project we undertake, logo, business website, trade show banners, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will job out our client’s work to companies based outside the USA. Whenever you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the price of your project and dictates the conditions of how we conduct business.

QUALITIES OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Dickinson organization understands that they need a logo, but few new business owners entirely comprehend the key role their organization’s logo can perform in their financial success, or the reason that one logo performs more effectively than another. A company logo has a critical and sustaining influence on the financial success of a business, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Dickinson businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to billboards a scalable logo design will stay legible and just as emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any type of device, in print, on product 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 logo design must be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of marking something to make sure that it can be recognized, its origin comes from the brand burned onto livestock. Nowadays a brand represents basically anything with an objective, regardless if it be revenue or government agencies, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are each from the very same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest directed at a specific audience, it’s goal is to create an image that the target market will identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person mentions the brand names Porsche or Mustang what we think about 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 deliver us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals purchase those products. Brand image is why people identify with most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you reflect on the history of a lot of branding firms you’ll find that they are often rebranded advertising companies. When somebody states they are in advertising many people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a kind of visual design that helps shape the public image of a company, a product or a business. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some identity designers also design web sites as well as software interfaces. The crucial role of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the objective of affecting activities, results as well as understandings.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Dickinson coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and cafe were opening in an old section of town and wanted to cast a vintage atmosphere without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished each of the jobs by means of designing a custom logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs designed for Dickinson clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the root causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the laboratory examination of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite 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 illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that helps make it more captivating, more interest grabbing and more meaningful.

logo style with a jumping environment-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Dickinson.

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 norm of the kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really reflect 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 lively high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for promotion and marketing. 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 exactly like my frog design.

photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Dickinson travel digital 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather communicate emotional journeys by means of the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they often share entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo 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  Dickinson logo design but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Dickinson logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family didn’t share his aversion for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to share it with friends and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the value of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family 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 choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo understand how crucial a logo is for their business so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of hurdles, but the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, style for Dickinson publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most essential part of a printed book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the book store. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will ever get to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, colorful and eye-catching and it gives plenty of territory 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 the bars customized to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it looks like that in many instances 1 of the things consumers often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design 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 victory.

 Dickinson logo layout utilized for advertising and a label style for Vintage Instance features an old-fashioned font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, which looked to be antique cases. For this custom logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that provided a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different point in time.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Dickinson, layout include an arc with lines intersecting with it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs because it seems that virtually every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo 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 dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately 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 implied in the concept. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family nonprofit, the logo includes 4 characters surprised in height to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be very 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 downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly 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 summarize how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective 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 that explains itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a Dickinson hair style workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo which carried a sense of simplicity and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious path of crafting merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is in most cases the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the main focus on the perception that they wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian horse logo style created for an equine cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo designed a distinct brand concept styled to embody the unique physical traits of the Arabian breed of horses. With a distinctive head shape and high tail posture, the Arabian is one of the very most immediately identifiable equine types in the entire world.

Logo design for a software program designer the design features as well as legendary Dickinson aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and drive operations. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge in between the software program and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it meant something to the owner of the business and in many cases the meaning supporting a logo is equally as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.

Progress logo design produced for a Dickinsonindoor designer, design feature a series of red circles that intersect as well as replace the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

A Dickinson business logo design including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly understood the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment company. 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 types of interests, a location to sell off their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Dickinson logo design design with an illustration that captures the interest of traffic and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Dickinson company logo style has a field included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand concept wasn’t really created for an Dickinson area farm it was in reality created for a products broker, and this particular logo was one of a handful of which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was to create a image that projected self-assurance, success, and affluence.

 Dickinson Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo style function for externally dealing with arrow and the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the opportunity to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of recognizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo design designed for making use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is similar to a famous Dickinson sports group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted dozens of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked directly with the proprietor to create a business logo which 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 neon sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
