POINTERS FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design firm presents a money back guarantee try to remember that they can’t refund the amount of time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be evaluated by the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain real world samples chances are they won’t be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s goal is to mirror your unique vision for your business. If a designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they will get paid.

ASPECTS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new North Olmsted entrepreneur understands that they require a logo, but few start-ups fully grasp the pivotal role their logo design will make in their financial success, or why one logo design functions far better than another. A business logo has an immediate and sustaining influence on the growth of a business, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help North Olmsted companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require consideration, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable logo will stay legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that 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 item or organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be ageless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb and also a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the act of denoting something so that it can be identified, its foundation comes from the mark branded onto livestock. These days a brand indicates practically anything with an intention, whether it be revenue or politics, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are both from the exact same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition aimed at a target market, it’s goal is to create a mental image that the target market can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When someone mentions the brand names Lamborghini or Corvette what we think of is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a vehicle with 4 wheels that can transport us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people want those products. Brand image is why individuals get most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the origin of a lot of branding firms you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded advertising and marketing agencies. When a person claims they are in marketing most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. Yet when somebody states “I’m in branding”… it simply seems much more attractive, perhaps it’s due to the fact that most people do not know what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual aspects of a product or company that influence understandings. This largely consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors utilized but can additionally consist of sound, lights, texture, signs, really anything that can be seen, felt or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps shape the image of a firm, a product or a business. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral products such as cards, stationery, and brochures. Some identity designers also build web sites and software interfaces. The necessary function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the objective of affecting activities, end results as well as perceptions.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a North Olmsted coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and bistro were actually launching in an older part of the city and really wanted to cast an old-fashioned atmosphere without coming across as boring or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs by creating a business logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscope slide and also germs made for North Olmsted clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which deals with the laboratory evaluation of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is really the sole instance I recall where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, however it does it in a way that incorporates 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 intriguing, more focus grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a family members fun facility in North Olmsted.

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 also a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really resonate an environment 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 name itself to give the logo a better lively high energy feel.

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

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for North Olmsted 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 fairly niche field of photography and I think it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead convey emotional journeys by means of the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they frequently tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo design by utilizing 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  North Olmsted 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.

 North Olmsted logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I truly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A but my client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his contempt for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to share it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really liked the concept 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo design understand how vital a logo is for their company so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of obstacles, however the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, style for North Olmsted publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, but it is the most crucial part of a published book considering that it is usually the initial thing a person views in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will likely ever get to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it seems that in many occurrences one of the aspects individuals tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a good sense of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 North Olmsted logo layout utilized for marketing as well as a label style for Vintage Situation features an old font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be vintage cases.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in North Olmsted, design include an arc with lines converging with it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs because it appears that each and every dentist incorporates 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 company advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s 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 dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a design that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters staggered in elevation to represent a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the love 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 method to any logo design is to be overly 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 understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to explain precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a North Olmsted hair layout studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo which communicated a feeling of peace and connection for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious route of crafting simply a stylized orchid but instead crafted a logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl featured into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is usually the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and hard drive managing. The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection in between the software 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 spell out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it represented something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the symbolism supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly knew the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a location to sell off their used items to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their North Olmsted logo design design using a graphic that captures the attention of vehicles and projects an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this North Olmsted company logo design has an area included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The end goal was actually to design a graphic that projected self-confidence, effectiveness, and prosperity.

 North Olmsted Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo style attribute for ostensibly dealing with arrow and also the arrowheads suggest that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design that they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the liberty to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without knowing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the 1st shot.

Logo design made for the use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is reminiscent of a popular North Olmsted sporting activities group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed loads of restaurant logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked closely with the business owner to design a logo which worked extremely 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 lighted signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
