STRATEGIES ON DETERMINING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many designers talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t contain actual examples chances are they will not be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to echo your personal vision for your company. If a logo designer isn’t focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they will get paid.

American Made ★ Design

Something which really sets ImageCo apart from many of the design firms that you probably have stumbled upon in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are brought on board to perform, we perform ourselves.

When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the cost of your design project and imposes the terms of how we conduct business.

ASPECTS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Alief organization understands that they need a logo, but few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the crucial role their organization’s logo can make in their financial success, or exactly why one business logo works more effectively than another. A business logo has an immediate and lasting impact on the viability of a company, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Alief businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require deliberation, they can be comprehended in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to store signs a scalable business logo will be legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel personal, and they are suitable for the product or organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark as well as the process of denoting something so that it can be distinguished, its origin originates from the mark branded onto livestock. These days a brand symbolizes practically anything with a motive, regardless of whether it be revenue or politics, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like advertising and marketing’s sexy sister, they are each from the exact same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition aimed at a target market, it’s goal is to develop an image that the audience can connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone says the names Ferrari or Mustang what we think about is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car 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 individuals buy 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 identify with.

Branding Agencies – If you reflect on the history of a lot of branding agencies you’ll find that they are often re-branded marketing companies. When someone claims they are in marketing lots of people will likely have an idea about the type of work they do 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 specializes in a type of visual design which helps shape the perception of a company, a product or a company. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, packaging, as well as collateral material such as cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some identity designers also develop web sites and also software interfaces. The necessary function of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the objective of affecting actions, results and understandings.

select logos & signs

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Alief coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening in an older section of the city and hoped to visualize a nostalgic tone without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both of these tasks by designing a company logo design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and also germs created for Alief clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of healthcare which works with the laboratory assessment of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Typically I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents very 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping environment-friendly frog made for a household enjoyable facility in Alief.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the types of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has 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 actually resonate 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy impression.

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

photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Alief travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead convey emotional journeys through the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they often share whole stories using 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 frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with mere words. I tried to do something comparable to this logo design 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Alief logo design but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Alief logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design projects that I take on I honestly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A however the customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get neutral judgements on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family 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 include every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo comprehend how vital a logo design is for their organization so they are way more vested in the final result. Every logo job has it’s portion of challenges, however the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Alief book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, but it really is the most crucial part of a printed book considering that it is often the initial thing a person views in the book shop. For a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will ever have to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go yet it seems like that in many cases one of the items people tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a sense of air travel and it was certainly a winner.

 Alief logo layout made use of for advertising as well as a tag layout for Vintage Case features an antiquated font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for music instruments, that looked to be antique cases. For this logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that offered a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could be used for everything from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different point in time.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Alief, style include an arc with lines converging with it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can be one of the most difficult logo jobs considering that it seems that every single dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept that does not have a solitary 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 design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a family not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in height 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 brand identity design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the families 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 far too literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to summarize precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that describes itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo layout created for a Alief hair style workshop including a script font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a company logo that carried a sense of tranquility and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which did not go the obvious direction of making merely a stylized orchid but instead crafted a logo design that suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is more often than not the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their clients.

Arabian equine logo layout developed for an equine ranch that focuses on breeding Arabian show equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo crafted a one-of-a-kind logo concept styled to embody the unique physical traits of the Arabian pedigree of equines. By having a different head form and higher tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the very most quite easily identifiable equine breeds in the world.

Las Coffee shop logo design a small restaurant, style includes a customized manuscript font which hovers over a group of luxuriant lines and dots.

Logo design for a software program developer the style attributes as well as renowned Alief element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive management. The kernel connects 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 program and computer hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the owner of the business and in many cases the substance behind a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

Develop logo design developed for a Aliefinterior designer, style feature a collection of red circles that converge and also replace the letter O in the center of the logo design.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Alief business logo design featuring an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

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 fans the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a location to market their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Alief logo design design along with a graphic that garners 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 realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Alief company logo design has actually a field integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo idea wasn’t actually designed for an Alief area farm it was really created for a commodities broker, and this logo was one of multiple that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was actually to develop a graphic that projected self-assurance, effectiveness, and luxury.

 Alief Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo layout feature for externally encountering arrowhead and the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design they preferred, that 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 tricky to hit a bullseye without knowing where the target is. Fortunately, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the first go.

Logo designed for using an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript typeface that is evocative a well-known Alief sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bake 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 closely with the business owner to design a logo design which 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 neon sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
