POINTERS FOR SELECTING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can not reimburse the time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

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

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be understood and remembered, and it’s purpose is to mirror your personal vision for your company. If a designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how soon they can get paid.

We have undertaken brand design work for builders, universities, diamond miners, wedding singers, bistros, retailers, and virtually every other kind of business you can envision. What makes ImageCo different compared to our competitors is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every branding project as if it will be employed as an electrical sign. As a result of our sign first technique our logo designs can, and have been utilized in everything from fashion labels to electrical signs. Our sign first technique ensures that our logo designs are just as successful whether they are used in television commercials or website applications, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and remembered no matter of size or application.

American Made ★ Design

The thing that truly sets ImageCo apart from many of the design firms that you probably have stumbled upon on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are retained to perform, we do ourselves. Irrespective of the type of design project we accept, brand identity design, web page, trade show exhibition, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will contract out our client’s work to companies located outside the USA. When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the person that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a broker that increases the price of your design project and determines the conditions of how you and I do business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

Nearly every new Alamo business understands that they need a logo, but few start-ups thoroughly grasp the pivotal role their business logo will perform in their becoming successful, or exactly why one business logo works better than another. A logo has a critical and long term influence on the prosperity of a company, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Alamo businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need consideration, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that work 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 right, and they are suitable for the item or business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the process of denoting something to ensure that it can be distinguished, its genesis originates from the mark branded onto animals. Today a brand indicates pretty much anything with an intention, regardless if it be profit or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the value of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s attractive cousin, they are both from the exact same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition targeted at a specific audience, it’s goal is to develop an image that the target market will identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When a person states the names Ferrari or Mustang what we consider 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 deliver us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals want those products. Brand image is why people identify with specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the beginning of many branding companies you’ll find that they are often rebranded marketing agencies. When a person claims they are in advertising and marketing most individuals will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that focuses on a type of visual design that helps form the public image of a business, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and also collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and also sales brochures. Some identity designers also design websites as well as user interfaces. The vital role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and also a psychological tone with the objective of influencing actions, outcomes and understandings.

Featured logos & signs

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually launching in an older section of town and really wanted to project a vintage tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved both jobs by designing a custom logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria made for Alamo clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which studies the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare that deals with the clinical examination of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, however it does it in a way that incorporates 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 enhancer to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more interest grabbing and much more memorable.

logo style with a leaping green frog created for a family members enjoyable facility in Alamo.

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 types of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the business has 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 destination to go and spring doesn’t actually 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better dynamic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept 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 made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and also a tree - created for Alamo travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather niche field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather reveal emotional experiences through the images they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something much the same 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Alamo logo design but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really 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 letter A but my customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his aversion for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to talk about it with colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get neutral opinions on the value of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members 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 include every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their business logo recognize how crucial a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo design job possesses it’s allotment of challenges, however the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, style for Alamo book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, however it really is the most vital part of a published book due to the fact that it is usually the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will ever have to publicize their product 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 created for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with the bars modified to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it seems like that in many cases 1 of the items consumers tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a spirit of flight and it was definitely a winner.

 Alamo logo layout used for advertising and marketing as well as a label layout for Vintage Instance features an archaic font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for musical instruments, that appeared to be much older cases. For this brand design I tried to come up with a logo that provided a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could easily be used for every thing from a web page to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different generation.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Alamo, style include an arc with lines converging with it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can be one of the most difficult logo jobs due to the fact that it seems that every single dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design 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 dental care profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and eventually 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 suggested in the design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in height to represent 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 brand identity design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Most 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 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 business or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to summarize exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo design produced for a Alamo hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo which related a feeling of contentment and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious direction of creating just a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a business logo that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is in most cases the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the main focus on the emotion that they wanted to project to their patrons.

Arabian steed logo design developed for a horse ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian program equines.

Logo design for a software developer the design functions and also renowned Alamo 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). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and drive managing. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

The business 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 describe anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the substance supporting a logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

Evolve logo layout produced for a Alamointerior developer, style attribute a collection of red circles that intersect as well as change the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

A Alamo business logo layout featuring a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly knew the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a spot to sell their used goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Alamo business logo design with a graphic that garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Alamo company logo design has a field included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms emblem design wasn’t actually composed for an Alamo area farm it was really devised for a products broker, and this particular trademark was one of a handful of that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to design an identity that projects confidence, success, and luxury.

 Alamo Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo design function for outwardly facing arrowhead as well as the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design that they wanted, that 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 case, I hit a bullseye with the very first try.

Logo made for using an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script typeface that is similar to a well-known Alamo sports group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant 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 think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked directly with the proprietor to design a logo design that worked very 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 above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
