TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design company offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they simply cannot refund the amount of time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but in the end a design firm can only be evaluated from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature actual examples odds are they won’t be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to echo your unique vision for your company. If a designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they can get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new West Columbia entrepreneur understands that they probably need a logo, yet few new business owners entirely understand the key role their business logo will perform in their financial success, or exactly why one business logo performs more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and sustaining impact on the prosperity of a business, choose the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help West Columbia businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not need consideration, they can be comprehended in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from label to store signs a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that function 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the product or organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It is both a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the act of noting something to ensure that it could be distinguished, its foundation originates from the brand branded onto animals. Nowadays a brand symbolizes virtually anything with a motive, regardless if it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the value of a specific thing in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are both from the very same family, the difference 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 calculated popularity competition directed at a specific audience, it’s goal is to create an image that the target market will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody states the brand names Porsche or Corvette 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 vehicle with 4 wheels that can carry us from point A to point B, the the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and brand image is what makes people purchase those products. Brand image is why people get specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can identify with.

Branding Firms – If you look back at the beginning of a lot of branding firms you’ll find that they are often re-branded advertising agencies. When someone claims they are in advertising and marketing the majority of people will likely have an idea about what they do. But when a person says “I’m in branding”… it just sounds much more attractive, maybe it’s due to the fact that the majority of people do not know what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that explains the visual aspects of a product or company that affect understandings. This largely consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors utilized yet can likewise consist of sound, lighting, texture, signs, just about anything that can be seen, touched or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that focuses on a kind of visual design that helps shape the perception of a business, a product or a company. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and also collateral material such as business cards, stationery, as well as sales brochures. Some identity designers also design websites as well as user interfaces. The necessary duty of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the goal of influencing actions, outcomes as well as understandings.

select signs/logos

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening in an old part of town and wanted to cast a retro vibe without coming across as boring or low energy. I accomplished both tasks by creating a sign concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and germs designed for West Columbia clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare that deals with the clinical evaluation of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, however it does it in a fashion that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that makes it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo layout with a leaping green frog created for a household enjoyable facility in West Columbia.

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 norm of the types of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really reflect an atmosphere 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 name itself to give the logo a better lively high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I came up with was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - made for West Columbia traveling 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather project emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they often tell whole 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 often have an emotional fullness which can’t be communicated with just words. I attempted to do something very similar 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  West Columbia logo but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 West Columbia logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really savor and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really 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 form as a stroke in the character A but my client, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members did not share his aversion for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get impartial assessments on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they really 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 include every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their business logo comprehend how vital a logo is for their organization so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo design job has it’s share of obstacles, but the largest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required 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, layout for West Columbia book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, however it is the most critical part of a published book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the book shop. With regard to a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will likely ever get to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it seems that in many occurrences one of the things individuals tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young new venture commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a success.

 West Columbia logo design used for marketing and also a label layout for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for music instruments, which seemed to be much older cases. For this brand concept I strove to come up with a logo that offered a fluid retro feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a web page to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different generation.

Logo created for an orthodontist in West Columbia, style consist of an arc with lines converging through it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs considering that it seems that virtually every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dentists do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo 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 care industry.

I actually love doing dentist business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design created for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters surprised in elevation to stand for a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. Many 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 found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to explain specifically how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a West Columbia hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo that conveyed a sense of contentment and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious direction of crafting merely a stylized orchid but rather designed a logo design which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is in most cases the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the attention on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

Arabian steed logo design produced for a steed ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian program equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo crafted a distinct brand concept customized to exemplify the unique physical traits of the Arabian pedigree of horses. With a distinctive head shape and very high tail posture, the Arabian is one of the very most immediately identifiable horse lineages in the world.

Logo style for a software programmer the layout functions and iconic West Columbia 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 control, and drive operations. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge in between the software program and computer 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 business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

A West Columbia business logo design including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly recognized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a spot to sell their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their West Columbia logo design with an illustration which garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this West Columbia company logo style has an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo idea wasn’t actually designed for an West Columbia area farm it was actually developed for a commodities broker, and this company was one of multiple that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to develop a graphic that projected assurance, success, and prosperity.

 West Columbia Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo layout function for ostensibly facing arrowhead and also the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design that they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the freedom to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without recognizing where the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the 1st shot.

Logo developed for making use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript typeface that is evocative a famous West Columbia sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking where I worked closely with the business owner to create a logo which worked extremely 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 illuminated signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
