POINTERS ON IDENTIFYING 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 bear in mind that they simply cannot reimburse the time you commit which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a design firm can only be judged by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t feature actual examples chances are they will not be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to reflect your personal vision for your business. If a logo designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how soon they will get paid.

Shawnee LOGO DESIGN​

For over twenty years ImageCo has been helping business owners grow memorable brands. We’ve done branding work for farmers, colleges, diamond miners, wedding singers, coffee shops, retailers, and practically every other kind of business you can think of. What makes us unique compared to traditional designers is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every design as if it will be utilized as an electrical sign. As a result of our sign first technique our logo designs can, and have been utilized in everything from clothing labels to neon signs. Our sign first technique insures that our logos are just as successful whether they are used in television commercials or website applications, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and always remembered no matter of size or application.

American Made ★ Design

The thing that seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design firms that you may have found on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are enlisted to do, we perform ourselves. Regardless of the type of design project we undertake, brand identity design, website design, trade show display, or electric sign, we do not, and never will farm-out our client’s work to agencies based outside the US. When you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a broker that marks up the price of your project and imposes the conditions of how we conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Shawnee business realizes that they require a logo, however few new business owners fully understand the crucial role their business logo will perform in their financial success, or exactly why one business logo performs far better than another. A company logo has an immediate and lasting impact on the prosperity of a company, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Shawnee companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need consideration, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to posters a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which 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 product or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be lasting and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It is both a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the process of marking something to ensure that it can be identified, its origin comes from the brand burned onto livestock. Today a brand signifies practically anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy cousin, they are each 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 strategic popularity contest aimed at a target market, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the audience will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When someone states the names Ferrari or Mustang what we think about is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car with 4 wheels that can deliver 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 brands. Brand image is why people get most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Agencies – If you look back at the beginning of a lot of branding companies you’ll discover that they are quite often rebranded advertising and marketing firms. When somebody states they are in advertising and marketing lots of people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that focuses on a kind of visual design which helps form the perception of a company, a product or a company. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some visual designers also develop web sites and also user interfaces. The important role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the objective of affecting actions, outcomes and also perceptions.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Shawnee coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening in an older section of the community and wished to cast an old-fashioned vibe without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both of these tasks by designing a business logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and germs designed for Shawnee medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which deals with the laboratory examination of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recall in which I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Normally I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents very 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 enhancement to the name that makes it more interesting, more interest grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping green frog created for a family members fun facility in Shawnee.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really reflect an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design 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 give the logo a better lively high energy feeling.

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

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - made for Shawnee 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 area because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather convey emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they frequently tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be communicated with mere words. I attempted to do something much the same 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Shawnee logo but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Shawnee logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, but the client 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 letter A but the client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his contempt for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage all of them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral assessments on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they loved the concept and were able to reason with 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 alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo design recognize how essential a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of challenges, but the most significant obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most vital part of a published book since it is usually the initial thing a person views in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the opportunity they will ever have to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it looks like that in many occurrences one of the items individuals tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a good sense of air travel and it was definitely a winner.

 Shawnee logo layout utilized for marketing as well as a tag style for Vintage Case features an old font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for musical instruments, which appeared to be much older cases. For this brand concept I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could easily be used for every thing from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Shawnee, layout include an arc with lines converging via it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo projects due to the fact that it seems that each and every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a design that does not 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 client the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to explain how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a Shawnee hair style studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that communicated a sense of contentment and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious path of making simply a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is oftentimes the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the focus on the emotion that they wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian horse logo layout produced for a horse ranch that specializes in reproducing Arabian show horses.

Logo layout for a software application designer the layout attributes as well as renowned Shawnee component 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 administration, process and task control, and drive management. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a bridge in between the software program 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 point out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in many cases the significance supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

A Shawnee business logo design featuring an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly knew the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to market their used goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Shawnee logo design using an image that seizes the interest of vehicles and sends an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I knew 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 design MQ farms, this Shawnee company logo style has actually an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo design wasn’t actually developed for an Shawnee area farm it was in reality created for a products broker, and this trademark was one of a handful of that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was really to develop a graphic that projected esteem, financial success, and luxury.

 Shawnee Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo layout function for externally dealing with arrow and the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design that they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the freedom to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Luckily, in this particular case, I hit a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo design made for making use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font that is similar to a renowned Shawnee sports team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked directly with the proprietor to develop a logo that worked really 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 signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
