POINTERS ON DETERMINING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design agency presents a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can not refund the amount of time you commit which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but inevitably a designer can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not contain real world examples odds are they will not be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to mirror your unique vision for your company. If a designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how soon they will get paid.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Barberton business knows they need a logo, but few start-ups entirely comprehend the vital role their logo design can make in their becoming successful, or why one logo design performs far better than another. A company logo has an instant and long term effect on the prosperity of a company, choose 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 a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Barberton companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need consideration, they can be comprehended in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to billboards a scalable logo will stay legible and just as emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which 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 right, and they are suitable for the product or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the act of marking something to make sure that it could be distinguished, its foundation originates from the mark branded onto animals. Nowadays a brand represents basically anything with an objective, regardless of whether it be profit or politics, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the worth of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are both from the same family, the distinction 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 aimed at a target market, it’s objective is to produce an image that the audience will likely connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody says the brand names Porsche 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 move 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 that is what makes people purchase those products. Brand image is why people get 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 look back at the origin of the majority of branding firms you’ll find that they are often re-branded marketing firms. When someone says they are in advertising most individuals 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 Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps form the perception of a firm, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some visual designers also develop websites as well as user interfaces. The important function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the goal of affecting activities, end results as well as assumptions.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Barberton coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were launching in an older section of the community and hoped to cast an old-fashioned tone without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I achieved both of these jobs via developing a custom logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and also germs made for Barberton clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that studies the causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that works with the clinical assessment of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents very 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 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 a lot more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a family fun center in Barberton.

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 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 physicians, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature 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 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 title itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they utilized for promotion and marketing. I also think 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 featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - created for Barberton travel professional 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 pretty niche field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers tend not to capture locations 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 reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey whole 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 that can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something very similar to this logo by making use of 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  Barberton logo but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Barberton logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless design 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 shape as a stroke in the character A but the customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his scorn for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased assessments on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they 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 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 concept.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to design their business logo realize how essential a logo is for their business so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo job has it’s allotment of difficulties, but the most significant obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Barberton book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most necessary part of a printed book because it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will likely ever get to promote their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it looks like that in many occurrences 1 of the aspects people often 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 although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a feeling of airline flight and it was certainly a victory.

 Barberton logo design made use of for advertising and also a tag style for Vintage Instance includes an old-fashioned font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in new cases for musical instruments, that looked to be much older cases. For this business logo concept I sought to come up with a logo that provided a fluid vintage feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from another era.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Barberton, design consist of an arc with lines converging via it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects considering that it seems that almost every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately 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 client the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in height to stand for a family 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 design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many 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 pertaining to 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 business or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated 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 attempts to use the logo design to explain how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that describes itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a Barberton hair style workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo which carried a sense of peace and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious direction of making merely a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a business logo that implied a flower 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 hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is more often than not the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their clients.

Logo layout for a software designer the design attributes as well as renowned Barberton 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 drive managing. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge in between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the owner of the business and in many cases the substance behind a logo is equally as important as how it brands the business it stands for.

A Barberton business logo style including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards 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 retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to sell their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Barberton logo design utilizing an image which grabs the interest of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Barberton company logo layout has actually a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo concept wasn’t actually composed for an Barberton regional farm it was in reality developed for a products broker, and this particular business logo was one of many which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was actually to produce a image that projects esteem, effectiveness, and opulence.

 Barberton Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo design attribute for outwardly facing arrowhead as well as the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the flexibility to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of recognizing where the target is. Fortunately, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the very first try.

Logo developed for using an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is reminiscent of a well-known Barberton sporting activities group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have 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 bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked directly with the business owner to create a logo design that worked very 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 sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
