POINTERS FOR PICKING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but ultimately a designer can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature actual samples odds are they won’t be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to mirror your unique vision for your business. If a logo designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

Murrysville LOGO DESIGN​

For over 20 years ImageCo has been helping small business owners develop unforgettable brand identities. We’ve done brand identity design work for farmers, schools, heart surgeons, party planners, diners, retail stores, and virtually every other kind of business you can envision. What makes us different compared to traditional designers is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every brand identity project as though it will be utilized as an electric sign. Because of our sign first method our logo designs can, and have been employed in everything from fashion labels to billboards. Our sign first approach guarantees that our logo designs are equally effective whether they are used in television commercials or web applications, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and always remembered regardless of size or purpose.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference that seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the design agencies that you probably have stumbled upon in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are brought on board to perform, we perform in-house. Irrespective of the type of project we accept, business logo, web page, trade show exhibit, or electric sign, we do not, and never will job-out our customer’s work to companies located outside the United States. Whenever you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that marks up the cost of your project and determines the conditions of how you and I conduct business.

ASPECTS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Murrysville business realizes that they probably need a logo, however few start ups entirely realize the crucial role their organization’s logo can perform in their success, or the reason that one logo performs more effectively than another. A business logo has a critical and lasting influence on the prosperity of a company, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Murrysville businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require contemplation, they can be comprehended in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate on any type of 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 product or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the process of denoting something to make sure that it could be recognized, its origin originates from the mark branded onto animals. These days a brand represents pretty much anything with an intention, regardless if it be profit or political parties, a brand is an inherent aspect of defining the value of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s attractive cousin, they are each from the exact same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition targeted at a target market, it’s goal is to create a mental image that the target market can relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When a person mentions the brand names Porsche or Mustang what we think of is their brand image, it’s an image that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of an automobile with 4 wheels that can move 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 brand image is what makes individuals buy those products. Brand image is why people buy specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Agencies – If you reflect on the origin of a lot of branding firms you’ll discover that they are frequently rebranded advertising and marketing agencies. When someone claims they are in advertising and marketing lots of people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps shape the public image of a company, a product or a business. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and also collateral material such as cards, stationery, and pamphlets. Some identity designers also build sites as well as user interfaces. The necessary function of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of influencing activities, results and assumptions.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Murrysville coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee bar were launching in an older part of town and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic feel without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled both of these jobs by creating a sign design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide as well as bacteria made for Murrysville medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that works with the clinical evaluation of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the sole instance I recall where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, yet it does it in a fashion 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 enhancer to the name that makes it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog designed for a household enjoyable center in Murrysville.

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 also a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really resonate 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy feel.

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

photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - made for Murrysville travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather communicate emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they frequently tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something similar 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 hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Murrysville 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.

 Murrysville logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I genuinely enjoy 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 form as a stroke in the letter A however the client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously disliked 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 type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial opinions on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they really loved the design and were able to reason with 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo understand how important a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the final result. Every logo design project has it’s share of difficulties, however the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, layout for Murrysville publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, but it is the most vital part of a printed book since it is ordinarily the initial thing a person views in the bookstore. With regard to a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems that in many occurrences 1 of the things consumers usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest fledgling commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a spirit of airline flight and it was certainly a victory.

 Murrysville logo design used for advertising and a tag layout for Vintage Situation features an antiquated typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be antique cases. For this brand design I tried to come up with a logo that had a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could be used for every thing from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different era.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Murrysville, design include an arc with lines intersecting with it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs due to the fact that it seems that almost every dentist involves 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 advertising in the very same way dentists do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s company 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 dentistry profession.

I actually love doing dental logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a household not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in elevation to stand for 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 design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Most 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 about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that 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 to illustrate precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo design created for a Murrysville hair design studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design which conveyed a feeling of ease and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious route of designing just a stylized orchid but instead created a business logo that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is more often than not the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Logo design for a software designer the style functions and iconic Murrysville 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 operations. 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 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 few 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. However it represented something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the symbolism behind a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the business it represents.

A Murrysville business logo design featuring a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a location to market their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Murrysville logo design with a graphic which garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this Murrysville company logo design has a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo concept wasn’t actually developed for an Murrysville regional farm it was in reality created for a products broker, and this logo was one of many that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to produce a brand mark that projects self-confidence, financial success, and luxury.

 Murrysville Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo style function for outwardly encountering arrow and also 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 they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the liberty to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without knowing where the target is. Fortunately, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the very first shot.

Logo created for using an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script typeface that is similar to a popular Murrysville sporting activities team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted loads of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked closely with the business owner to create a logo design which worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned 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.
