TIPS ON PICKING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but in the end a design agency can only be judged from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not feature real life examples chances are they will never be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to echo your unique vision for your organization. If a logo designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they will get paid.

We have performed logo design work for builders, universities, diamond miners, wedding singers, bistros, retailers, and practically every other kind of business you can envision.

Our sign first approach guarantees that our logos are just as successful whether they are used in TV commercials or website apps, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and always remembered regardless of scale or purpose.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which really sets ImageCo apart from many of the design firms that you might have found in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are retained to do, we perform ourselves. Irrespective of the type of design project we take on, logo, website design, trade show banners, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will job-out our client’s projects to contractors based outside the United States. When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that marks up the price of your project and determines the terms of how we do business.

ASPECTS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Jamestown entrepreneur realizes that they need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly grasp the vital role their organization’s logo will make in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo functions far better than another. A logo design has a critical and long term effect on the growth of a business, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Jamestown businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require deliberation, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo will be legible and equally emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate 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 right, and they are suitable for the item or business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark as well as the act of denoting something to ensure that it could be distinguished, its foundation comes from the brand branded onto animals. Nowadays a brand symbolizes pretty much anything with an objective, regardless of whether it be revenue or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are both from the 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 directed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the audience will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When someone mentions the names Ferrari 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 deliver us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and that is what makes people want those products. Brand image is why people get specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the beginning of many branding firms you’ll discover that they are often re-branded advertising and marketing agencies. When someone says they are in advertising the majority of people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps form the public image of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some visual designers also develop websites as well as software interfaces. The crucial role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of influencing actions, outcomes as well as understandings.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Jamestown coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening in an old part of the area and wished to cast a nostalgic tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs by developing a custom logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide as well as germs created for Jamestown clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of healthcare which works with the laboratory evaluation of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the sole instance I remember in which I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Generally I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents very literally, but it does it in a fashion 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 enhancer to the name that helps make it more appealing, more focus grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping green frog developed for a family members fun center in Jamestown.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dentists, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the clear 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 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better lively high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design 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 did 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 group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Jamestown travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead project emotional experiences by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they often tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Jamestown logo but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Jamestown logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design jobs that I take on I honestly savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A but my customer, even though 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 did not share his scorn for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get neutral assessments on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they loved the concept and were able to reason with him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to include 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 concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo understand how vital a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo project has it’s portion of hurdles, but the greatest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, style for Jamestown book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin slice of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most critical part of a printed book due to the fact that it is in most cases the first thing a person sees in the book store. Regarding a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will likely ever get to spotlight their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it looks like that in many cases one of the items consumers usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a spirit of flight and it was undoubtedly a success.

 Jamestown logo design made use of for advertising and also a label design for Vintage Situation features an antiquated font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be older cases. For this custom logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that had a fluid vintage feel to it and could be used for every thing from a web page to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different era.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Jamestown, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most difficult logo jobs due to the fact that it seems that almost every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

I really love doing dental care logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo developed for a family nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters surprised in elevation to represent 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 logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy method 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 concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to illustrate how people should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that describes itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a Jamestown hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo which carried a feeling of ease and class for their new hair salon. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious course of crafting just a stylized orchid but rather designed a logo design that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is frequently the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the main focus on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

Arabian steed logo design created for an equine ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian program horses.

Las Cafe logo style a small restaurant, design consists of a modified manuscript font which floats over a team of ornate lines and dots.

Logo style for a software program designer the design features as well as legendary Jamestown component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk managing. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a connection 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 located a couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance behind a company logo is equally as important as how it serves the organization it stands for.

Progress logo layout created for a Jamestownindoor developer, layout function a collection of red circles that converge as well as replace the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Jamestown business logo layout including an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the visitor.

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 owners of On the Fly knew the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store 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 location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a place to sell their used goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Jamestown logo design design along with an image that garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Jamestown company logo style has a field integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo concept wasn’t actually developed for an Jamestown area farm it was actually developed for a products broker, and this company was one of many which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to generate a graphic that projects self-confidence, financial success, and wealth.

 Jamestown Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo layout attribute for outwardly dealing with arrowhead as well as the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the freedom to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard 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 first shot.

Logo design made for making use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is evocative a popular Jamestown sports group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve crafted dozens 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 favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked directly with the owner to create a logo design that worked very 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 illuminated signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
