TIPS ON FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design firm offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can not reimburse the amount of time you invest which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but inevitably a design firm can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain real life examples chances are they will never be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

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

We have undertaken logo design work for ranchers, educational institutions, heart surgeons, wedding singers, diners, retailers, and just about every other kind of business you can envision.

American Made ★ Design

The thing that seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the design companies that you might possibly have encountered in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are contracted to do, we do ourselves. Irrespective of the type of project we undertake, logo, website design, trade show display, or electric sign, we do not, and never will job-out our client’s projects to companies located outside the United States. When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that marks up the price of your project and dictates the conditions of how you and I conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Stow entrepreneur realizes that they probably need a logo, but few start-ups thoroughly recognize the pivotal role their logo design can play in their financial success, or the reason that one business logo functions far better than another. A logo design has a critical and lasting influence on the viability of a company, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Stow companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require consideration, they can be comprehended in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable logo will stay legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that work 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 company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of denoting something to make sure that it could be identified, its foundation comes from the brand burned onto livestock. These days a brand symbolizes pretty much anything with a motive, regardless if it be revenue or politics, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s attractive sister, they are all from the same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition directed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the target market will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When someone says 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 carry us from point A to point B, the the mental 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 individuals purchase most things, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the beginning of most branding agencies you’ll find that they are quite often re-branded marketing agencies. When someone claims they are in advertising most individuals will likely have an idea about what they do. However when a person says “I’m in branding”… it simply seems more impressive, probably it’s due to the fact that most people don’t fully understand what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that describes the visual aspects of a product or agency that affect understandings. This mainly consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the colors utilized yet can likewise consist of audio, lighting, texture, signs, actually anything that can be seen, touched or heard 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 image of a company, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some identity designers also develop web sites as well as user interfaces. The essential duty of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the goal of affecting activities, outcomes and understandings.

select logos & signs

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening up in an old part of the area and wished to visualize a retro feel without appearing as boring or low energy. I accomplished both tasks by creating a company logo design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscope slide and also bacteria developed for Stow clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which investigates the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare that deals with the clinical examination of specimens of body tissue 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 logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be overly literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite literally, however 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 appealing, more interest grabbing and more unforgettable.

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

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun 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 types of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really reflect 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I designed was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - designed for Stow traveling 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 rather niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather convey emotional experiences by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they often convey entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo design by making use of 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  Stow logo design but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Stow logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I honestly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A however my client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to share it with friends and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get impartial point of views on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they adored the design 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo design recognize how crucial a logo is for their organization so they are way more vested in the final result. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of obstacles, however the largest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Stow publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, however it is the most crucial part of a printed book because it is often the first thing a person sees in the book shop. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever have to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go nevertheless it looks like that in many occurrences 1 of the traits folks 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 situated in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a sense of flight and it was surely a winner.

 Stow logo layout used for advertising and a tag style for Vintage Case features an archaic font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be antique cases. For this business logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid old style feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web site to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different generation.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Stow, design include an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most challenging logo projects considering that it seems that almost every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design 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 industry.

I really enjoy doing dental care 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 offered such an opportunity and eventually I created a concept that doesn’t 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 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 household not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities startled in elevation to represent a family with in the layout.

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 folks in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy 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 concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to summarize precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style developed for a Stow hair style studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design which communicated a sense of contentment and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious direction of making simply a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is in most cases the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the emphasis on the emotion that they wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo design developed for an equine cattle ranch that specializes in reproducing Arabian show horses.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo crafted a distinct logo concept customized to illustrate the unique physical traits of the Arabian breed of horses. With a different head form and high tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the highly quite easily identifiable horse lineages in the world.

Las Coffee shop logo design a small restaurant, design contains a customized manuscript typeface which floats over a team of luxuriant lines as well as dots.

Logo style for a software application developer the design features and also renowned Stow aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and drive managing. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge in between the software and computer 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 identify anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it symbolized something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the symbolism supporting a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

Progress logo design produced for a Stowinterior designer, design function a collection of red circles that intersect as well as change the letter O in the center of the logo design.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Stow business logo style including an angler in the center of the name casting a fly towards the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly realized the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment business. 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 kinds of interests, a spot to sell off their secondhand products to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Stow logo design utilizing an illustration that pulls in the attention of traffic and sends an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Stow company logo layout has an area integrated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t really composed for an Stow area farm it was really devised for a commodities broker, and this logo was one of a handful of which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was really to make an identity that projects self-confidence, effectiveness, and prosperity.

 Stow Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo design function for externally 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 that they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the opportunity to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the first go.

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

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant logo designs 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 believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked closely with the owner to design a logo that worked very 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 over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
