TIPS ON SELECTING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they simply cannot refund the amount of time you invest which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design firm can only be evaluated from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t feature actual examples odds are they will not be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s objective is to mirror your unique vision for your organization. If a logo designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they will get paid.

We’ve undertaken logo design work for farmers, colleges, diamond miners, party planners, cafes, retailers, and practically every other kind of business concern you can think of.

Our sign first approach guarantees that our logo designs are just as effective whether they are used in television commercials or website headers, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and remembered regardless of size or application.

American Made ★ Design

The thing that seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the design firms that you probably have stumbled upon on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are hired to do, we do in-house. Irrespective of the kind of project we take on, logo, website, trade show exhibition, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will farm out our customer’s work to agencies based outside the USA. Whenever you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the cost of your design project and imposes the conditions of how we do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Every new Vandalia organization understands that they require a logo, however few start ups fully recognize the crucial role their logo can make in their success, or the reason that one logo design functions far better than another. A company logo has an instant and long-term influence on the success of a company, pick the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Vandalia companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require contemplation, they can be comprehended in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable business logo will remain legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any device, in print, on 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 represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the act of denoting something to ensure that it could be identified, its origin originates from the brand branded onto animals. Nowadays a brand signifies practically anything with an objective, regardless of whether it be profit or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the worth of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are each from the very 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 calculated popularity contest directed at a target market, it’s objective is to produce an image that the target market will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When someone states the brand names Lamborghini or Corvette what we think about is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of an automobile 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 that is what makes individuals purchase those products. Brand image is why individuals identify with most things, 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 history of most branding agencies you’ll find that they are often re-branded marketing agencies. When a person says they are in advertising and marketing most people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when somebody says “I am in branding”… it just seems much more attractive, perhaps it’s due to the fact that lots of people do not fully understand what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and perhaps even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that defines the visual aspects of a product or agency that influence view points. This mostly includes the name, the logo design, the packaging, the colors utilized but can additionally consist of audio, illumination, texture, signs, just about anything that can be seen, felt or heard become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a designer that specializes in a kind of visual design that helps shape the image of a business, a product or a business. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, and also collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some identity designers also build sites and also software interfaces. The important function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the goal of influencing actions, outcomes and also assumptions.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Vandalia coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee shop were launching in an old part of the town and wished to cast a vintage atmosphere without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs via developing a trademark design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide and also germs made for Vandalia clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which works with the laboratory assessment of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I call to mind where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents 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 explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping environment-friendly frog made for a family enjoyable facility in Vandalia.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun 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 types of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate an atmosphere 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 title itself to give the logo a more dynamic high energy impression.

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

digital photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - developed for Vandalia travel 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather project emotional journeys by means of the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they often share entire 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 frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design by making use of the positive space in the design to say 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Vandalia logo design but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Vandalia logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design jobs that I take on I really take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but 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 letter A however the customer, even though he loved 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”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial point of views on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they really 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo recognize how vital a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo design job has it’s allotment of difficulties, but the greatest challenge 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 giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, layout for Vandalia publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, yet it is the most crucial part of a published book given that it is usually the initial thing a person views in the book store. Concerning a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will likely ever get to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it looks like that in many instances 1 of the items individuals often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Vandalia logo layout made use of for advertising as well as a tag style for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for music instruments, that looked to be antique cases. For this brand design I tried to come up with a logo that had a fluid retro feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web site to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another point in time.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Vandalia, design include an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it appears that virtually every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have 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 dental profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and eventually I created a concept that doesn’t have a solitary 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 customer the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a household not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 characters startled in elevation to represent a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. The majority of 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 far too literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a Vandalia hair style studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo which communicated a spirit of simplicity and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious direction of crafting merely a stylized orchid but instead designed a logo that suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is more often than not the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the importance on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Arabian equine logo style created for a steed ranch that focuses on breeding Arabian program equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software designer the design attributes as well as renowned Vandalia element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and hard drive managing. The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a connection between the software program and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe 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 company and in many cases the significance behind a company logo is just as important as how it serves the business it represents.

A Vandalia business logo design featuring a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards 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 retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly knew the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to sell off their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Vandalia logo design design along with a graphic that captures the interest of vehicles and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour 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 serene habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Vandalia company logo layout has actually an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand design wasn’t actually developed for an Vandalia area farm it was really designed for a commodities broker, and this particular brand was one of several that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was to develop a brand mark that projects self-assurance, success, and affluence.

 Vandalia Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo layout function for outwardly facing arrowhead as well as the arrowheads imply that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the opportunity to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo design developed for making use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is evocative a renowned Vandalia sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked directly with the owner to create a logo which worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
