STRATEGIES ON PICKING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they simply cannot refund the amount of time you invest 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 determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t feature real world samples odds are they will never be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

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

Our sign first method insures that our logos are equally successful whether they are used in television commercials or web headers, they are consistently identifiable, comprehended, and always remembered irrespective of size or use.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which really sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you might have encountered in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every project we are hired to do, we perform in-house. Regardless of the type of project we take on, logo design, web site, trade show booth, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will farm out our customer’s work to organizations based outside the United States. When you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that answers the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a broker that increases the price of your project and dictates the terms of how my customers and I conduct business.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Fort Hood entrepreneur understands that they need a logo, however few start-ups thoroughly realize the pivotal role their business logo can play in their financial success, or exactly why one logo design functions more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and long term influence on the financial success of a business, choose the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Fort Hood businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t need contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the product or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It’s a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of denoting something to make sure that it could be distinguished, its foundation comes from the brand burned onto animals. Nowadays a brand signifies basically anything with a motive, regardless of whether it be profit or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the value of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s attractive cousin, they are both from the very same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity competition aimed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to produce an image that the audience can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody states the brand names Porsche or Mustang what we think of 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 move 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 sexy . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals want those brands. Brand image is why people acquire 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 history of most branding agencies you’ll find that they are often re-branded marketing and advertising companies. When someone claims they are in advertising and marketing most individuals will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a kind of visual design that helps form the image of a company, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and also collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some visual designers also build web sites and software interfaces. The vital function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the goal of influencing activities, end results as well as understandings.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Fort Hood coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening in an older section of town and really wanted to visualize a retro feel without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished each of the tasks via designing a custom logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide as well as germs made for Fort Hood medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that works with the clinical examination of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite literally, but it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 makes it more appealing, more focus grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping green frog made for a household fun facility in Fort Hood.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not really reflect 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy feel.

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

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - created for Fort Hood travel 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 fairly niche field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather project emotional journeys through the photos they record. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo by using the positive space in the design to voice 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Fort Hood logo but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Fort Hood logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I truly take pleasure in 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 shape as a stroke in the letter A but the customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family did not share his aversion for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial judgements on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he shared 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo recognize how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are much more vested in the outcome. Every logo design job has it’s share of hurdles, however the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Fort Hood publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin slice of real estate to work with, but it is the most critical part of a printed book considering that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person sees in the book store. With respect to a publishing company, 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 buy actual books.

This three 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 designed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with the bars modified to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart nevertheless it looks like that in many instances one of the aspects consumers often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a feeling of flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Fort Hood logo layout made use of for advertising and marketing and also a tag style for Vintage Case includes an old font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for music instruments, which looked to be antique cases. For this logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that provided a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could easily be used for every thing from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another generation.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Fort Hood, design include an arc with lines converging via it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most challenging logo design projects considering that it seems that each and every dentist incorporates 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 marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

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

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

William McNally logo design designed for a household nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy 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 business or organization wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design 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 explain precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a Fort Hood hair design workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo that conveyed an atmosphere of peace and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious path of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo design that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is more often than not the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the main focus on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their customers.

Logo style for a software application designer the style functions and also famous Fort Hood element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and hard drive operations. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge between the software program and computer hardware.

The 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 with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it represented something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a logo design is just as important as how it serves the business it stands for.

Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a location to market their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Fort Hood business logo design with a graphic which captures the attention of vehicles and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Good in that it offers a designer the liberty to delve into any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without knowing where the target is. Luckily, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo created for using an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font style that is evocative a well-known Fort Hood sporting activities team logo.

I’ve crafted loads of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked directly with the owner to create a logo which worked extremely 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 sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
