TIPS FOR DETERMINING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a design agency 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 never be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s goal is to mirror your personal vision for your business. If a designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how fast they will get paid.

Our sign first technique insures that our logos are equally effective whether they are used in TV commercials or website apps, they are consistently recognizable, understood, and always remembered irrespective of size or use.

American Made ★ Design

Something which really sets ImageCo apart from many of the design companies that you probably have encountered in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are retained to perform, we do ourselves. No matter the kind of design project we undertake, business logo, website, trade show banners, or electric sign, we do not, and never will farm-out our client’s projects to contractors located outside the USA. When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a go-between that marks up the cost of your design project and imposes the conditions of how you and I conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Elyria company knows they probably need a logo, but few new business owners fully recognize the crucial role their business logo can play in their success, or precisely why one logo functions far better than another. A business logo has an immediate and long term impact on the financial success of a company, go with 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 longevity of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Elyria businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require contemplation, they can be understood in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to store signs a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any type of 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 organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the process of marking something to make sure that it could be recognized, its foundation comes from the mark branded onto animals. Today a brand symbolizes pretty much anything with an objective, regardless of whether it be earnings or political parties, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the value of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are each from the 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 strategic popularity competition targeted at a target audience, it’s objective is to develop an image that the audience can connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When someone says the names Ferrari or Corvette what we consider 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 freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals buy those products. Brand image is why individuals get most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the history of the majority of branding companies you’ll find that they are often re-branded marketing firms. When somebody states they are in advertising most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that focuses on a type of visual design that helps form the image of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, and brochures. Some visual designers also develop websites as well as software interfaces. The necessary duty of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the objective of affecting actions, results as well as assumptions.

Featured logos & signs

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee shop were launching in an old section of town and wished to visualize a vintage atmosphere without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks by creating a custom logo concept that uses 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 style with a microscope slide and germs made for Elyria clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the triggers and effects of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that works with the laboratory evaluation of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Usually I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, yet it does it in a way that integrates 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 intriguing, more focus grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo layout with a jumping environment-friendly frog developed for a family fun facility in Elyria.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 health care providers, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually resonate an environment 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a more enthusiastic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Elyria traveling professional 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead convey emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they frequently share 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 which can’t be revealed with mere words. I tried to do something very similar 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Elyria logo design but also to illustrate the depth in her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Elyria logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design jobs that I take on I honestly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really 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 silhouette as a stroke in the letter A but the client, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his hatred for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased viewpoints on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really liked the design and were able to persuade 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 … ultimately 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 weird creature in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their logo design realize how vital a logo is for their organization so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo job possesses it’s share of difficulties, however the greatest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, style for Elyria book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most important part of a printed book given that it is often the first thing a person views in the book store. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity they will likely ever have to spotlight their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books.

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

Air LA logo designed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with the bars changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart yet it seems that in many instances one of the items consumers often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a sense of airline flight and it was surely a victory.

 Elyria logo design made use of for advertising and also a tag design for Vintage Instance features an old font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be older cases. For this custom logo design I tried to come up with a logo that had a fluid vintage feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a website to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different era.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Elyria, design include an arc with lines converging through it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely include 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

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

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

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design 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 approach to any logo design is to be far too literal with regards 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 wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly corny 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 to explain precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo style created for a Elyria hair style workshop including a script font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that projected an atmosphere of ease and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious route of designing merely a stylized orchid but rather created a logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl featured into the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is usually the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the main focus on the perception that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

Arabian equine logo layout created for a horse cattle ranch that focuses on reproducing Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo layout for a software application designer the design features and legendary Elyria element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk operations. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge between the software and hardware.

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

A Elyria business logo layout featuring an angler in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to sell off their secondhand products to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Elyria business logo design with an image which captures the attention of traffic and projects an image that invokes 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 travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

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

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t really produced for an Elyria regional farm it was really devised for a commodities broker, and this company 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 image that projected trust, effectiveness, and luxury.

 Elyria Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo layout function for outwardly encountering arrow as well as the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally 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 flexibility to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without knowing where the target is. Luckily, in this particular instance, I nailed a bullseye with the very first shot.

Logo design created for making use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font style that is evocative a renowned Elyria sports team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked closely with the owner to design a logo design that worked extremely well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
