TIPS ON IDENTIFYING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design agency presents a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can not reimburse the amount of time you invest which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but ultimately a design agency can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain real world samples odds are they won’t be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to echo your unique vision for your organization. If a logo designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Simpsonville company knows they need a logo, however few start-ups fully grasp the key role their company logo will perform in their financial success, or exactly why one business logo functions more effectively than another. A logo design has a critical and long-term impact on the financial success of a business, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Simpsonville companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t need scrutiny, they can be comprehended in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any sort 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 brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the act of noting something to ensure that it could be distinguished, its foundation originates from the brand burned onto animals. Nowadays a brand symbolizes practically anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be profit or political parties, a brand is an inherent aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are all from the exact same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition targeted at a specific audience, it’s goal is to produce a mental image that the target market will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone mentions the brand names Lamborghini or Mustang what we consider is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a vehicle with 4 wheels that can carry us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals want those products. Brand image is why individuals acquire specific brands, 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 many branding agencies you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded marketing and advertising agencies. When a person states they are in advertising and marketing many people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when someone says “I’m in branding”… it simply seems more attractive, possibly it’s due to the fact that most people do not understand what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that explains the visual components of a product or company that affect understandings. This primarily includes the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors utilized but can likewise include sound, illumination, texture, signs, just about anything that can be seen, touched or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that concentrates on a type of visual design that helps shape the perception of a company, a product or a company. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, as well as collateral products such as cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some visual designers also develop websites and software interfaces. The important function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and a psychological tone with the objective of affecting activities, end results and perceptions.

select SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Simpsonville coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening up in an old part of the area and hoped to project an old-fashioned feel without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I achieved both of these tasks by designing a sign concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide as well as germs made for Simpsonville clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare that deals with the laboratory evaluation of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I recollect in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Typically I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather 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 name that makes it more appealing, more attention grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a family members enjoyable facility in Simpsonville.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

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

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually resonate an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo 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 much 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 used for advertising and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Simpsonville traveling 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 speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead project emotional journeys through the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they frequently tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something the same to this logo by employing 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  Simpsonville logo design but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Simpsonville logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however my client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his aversion for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased assessments on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their business logo comprehend how vital a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo design project has it’s share of hurdles, but the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, style for Simpsonville book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, but it really is the most crucial part of a published book due to the fact that it is in most cases the first thing a person views in the bookstore. With regard to a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will ever have to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it seems that in many occurrences one of the things folks tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a spirit of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

 Simpsonville logo style made use of for advertising and a tag layout for Vintage Instance includes an antiquated font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for musical instruments, which appeared to be antique cases. For this custom logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that offered a fluid old style feel to it and could easily be used for every thing from a web site to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another point in time.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Simpsonville, style include an arc with lines converging through it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects because it appears that each and every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dentists do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

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

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

William McNally logo design developed for a family not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in height to represent a family with in the design.

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 city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to describe exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo design developed for a Simpsonville hair design workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design that conveyed a spirit of ease and class for their new hair studio. I created a concept that did not go the obvious path of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a company logo which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is oftentimes the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the attention on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian equine logo design produced for an equine cattle ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian program equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo created an original brand concept styled to manifest the unique physical traits of the Arabian breed of equines. By having a distinctive head form and high tail posture, the Arabian is one of the very most quite easily identifiable horse lineages in the world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Coffee shop logo style a tiny restaurant, style includes a changed script font which floats over a group of luxuriant lines as well as dots.

Logo layout for a software program developer the design functions and legendary Simpsonville component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and drive operations. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the owner of the company and in many cases the meaning behind a logo is just as important as how it brands the company it represents.

Advance logo design created for a Simpsonvilleinterior designer, design attribute a series of red circles that converge as well as replace the letter O in the center of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Simpsonville business logo design featuring an angler in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly understood the market was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a place to sell off their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Simpsonville business logo design utilizing an image that pulls in the attention of vehicles and sends an image that wakens 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 design MQ ranches, this Simpsonville company logo style has actually an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem design wasn’t really created for an Simpsonville area farm it was really devised for a commodities broker, and this particular company logo was one of multiple that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was actually to create an identity that projected assurance, success, and prosperity.

 Simpsonville Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo layout feature for ostensibly dealing with arrow and also the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what kind of logo design that they desired, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the freedom to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without realizing where the target is. Fortunately, in this particular case, I struck a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo design developed for the use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is similar to a renowned Simpsonville sports group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve crafted dozens of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked directly with the proprietor to design a logo that worked very 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 that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
