STRATEGIES FOR 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 remember that they simply cannot refund the time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a design firm can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain actual examples chances are they will never be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

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

The one difference that really sets ImageCo apart from other design agencies that you may have stumbled upon in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every project we are enlisted to perform, we do ourselves.

When you phone us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up 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 do business.

ASPECTS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Woodburn organization realizes that they probably need a logo, however few start-ups fully grasp the key role their company logo will perform in their success, or exactly why one logo design performs more effectively than another. A company logo has an instant and long-term effect on the viability of a company, select the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Woodburn businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require deliberation, they can be comprehended in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo will remain legible and just as emotive at any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate on any device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel personal, and they are suitable for the item or organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be ageless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark as well as the process of marking something to make sure that it can be identified, its origin originates from the mark burned onto livestock. These days a brand represents pretty much anything with an objective, whether it be revenue or political parties, a brand is an inherent aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy cousin, they are each from the exact same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition directed at a target audience, it’s goal is to create a mental image that the audience will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When someone says the 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 move 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 want 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 we can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the origin of the majority of branding companies you’ll find that they are often re-branded advertising firms. When a person states they are in advertising most people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when someone states “I’m in branding”… it just sounds much more impressive, perhaps it’s since the majority of people don’t know what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and kind of sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual components of a product or company that affect view points. This mostly includes the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors utilized yet can likewise include audio, lights, texture, signs, really anything that can be seen, touched or listened to are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that focuses on a type of visual design which helps form the perception of a business, a product or a company. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral products such as business cards, stationery, as well as sales brochures. Some visual designers also build websites and also software interfaces. The essential role of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the goal of influencing actions, outcomes and also perceptions.

Featured signs/logos

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening up in an older section of town and wanted to visualize a vintage feel without appearing as boring or low energy. I accomplished both jobs via creating a custom logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide as well as germs created for Woodburn clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which investigates the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that works with the laboratory examination of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Usually I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, yet it does it in a fashion 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more appealing, more interest grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog designed for a family members fun center in Woodburn.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally 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, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually reflect an atmosphere 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more dynamic 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 believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - created for Woodburn travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the photos they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they often convey entire stories using 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 resonance that can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo design by employing the positive space in the design to voice 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  Woodburn logo but also to illustrate the depth in her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Woodburn logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the client, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his contempt for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of 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 assessments on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they loved 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo understand how vital a logo design is for their company so they are much more vested in the result. Every logo design job possesses it’s portion of challenges, but the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Woodburn publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most critical part of a published book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the book shop. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever have to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

Air LA logo design made for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches customized to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it looks like that in many cases 1 of the items consumers often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a feeling of air travel and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 Woodburn logo design made use of for advertising and marketing as well as a label style for Vintage Instance includes an antiquated font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be antique cases. For this brand concept I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid old style feel to it and could easily be used for everything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another generation.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Woodburn, design include an arc with lines converging through it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can be one of the most difficult logo jobs because it appears that every single dentist integrates 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 business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including a likeness 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept 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 the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in height to stand for 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 representative of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be overly literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found 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 unique opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo style produced for a Woodburn hair style workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design that carried a sense of simplicity and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious course of crafting simply a stylized orchid but instead delivered a logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title 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 design is more often than not the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the importance on the perception that they wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Logo layout for a software application designer the design attributes as well as iconic Woodburn aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and disk managing. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone pertaining to 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 many cases the substance behind a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the company it stands for.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a place to sell their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Woodburn logo design using an image that garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Woodburn company logo design has actually an area incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo design wasn’t really created for an Woodburn area farm it was really devised for a commodities broker, and this particular trademark was one of multiple which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was to generate a brand mark that projected confidence, success, and luxury.

Good in that it offers a designer the freedom to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without realizing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo design designed for making use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is evocative a popular Woodburn sporting activities team logo.

I have crafted quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, 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 project where I worked directly with the business owner to create a logo design 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 that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
