STRATEGIES ON IDENTIFYING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A 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 can not refund the amount of time you commit which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but in the end a design agency can only be judged from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature actual samples odds are they will not be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

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

The thing that really sets ImageCo apart from other design firms that you may have found on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that absolutely every design project we are brought on board to do, we do in-house.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Grand Prairie organization understands that they require a logo, but few start ups fully grasp the vital role their logo design can make in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo design functions better than another. A business logo has an instant and lasting influence on the viability of a company, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Grand Prairie companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos which 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 item or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be timeless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and the act of denoting something so that it can be recognized, its foundation originates from the mark burned onto animals. Today a brand signifies basically anything with an objective, regardless if it be revenue or politics, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are each from the very 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 contest targeted at a specific audience, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the audience will identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When a person mentions the brand names Porsche 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 an automobile 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 brand image is what makes individuals buy those brands. Brand image is why individuals 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 origin of the majority of branding firms you’ll discover that they are quite often re-branded advertising and marketing firms. When a person says they are in advertising many people will likely have an idea about what they do. However when a person claims “I’m in branding”… it just sounds much more attractive, probably it’s due to the fact that most people don’t understand what it means to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that describes the visual components of a product or agency that affect perceptions. This mainly includes the name, the logo, the product packaging, the colors used yet can also include sound, lighting, texture, signage, 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 graphic designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps form the public image of a firm, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, packaging, and collateral material such as cards, stationery, and brochures. Some visual designers also build websites and software interfaces. The necessary role of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and an emotional tone with the objective of affecting actions, outcomes and also understandings.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Grand Prairie coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening in an old part of the city and hoped to project a nostalgic feel without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I achieved the two jobs via creating a custom logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria designed for Grand Prairie clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that deals with the laboratory assessment of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Normally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very 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 explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo design with a leaping green frog developed for a family members fun facility in Grand Prairie.

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 usual of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental practices, and legal professionals 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 company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more enthusiastic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they used for promotion 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 a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Grand Prairie travel 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 field because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather convey emotional journeys through the images they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be communicated with mere words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design by utilizing 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Grand Prairie logo but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Grand Prairie logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A however my customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members did not share his hatred for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get honest opinions on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they adored 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to design their business logo understand how essential a logo design is for their organization so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, however the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, style for Grand Prairie book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow piece of real estate to work with, but it really is the most crucial part of a published book considering that it is usually the primary thing a person sees in the book store. With regard to a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will ever have to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, colorful and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo design designed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with the bars modified to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart nevertheless it looks like that in many instances 1 of the items folks often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a feeling of flight and it was undoubtedly a success.

 Grand Prairie logo design used for marketing and a label layout for Vintage Situation includes an old-fashioned font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be much older cases. For this brand concept I strove to come up with a logo that provided a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be used for anything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another point in time.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Grand Prairie, layout include an arc with lines intersecting through it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that almost every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo 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 dentistry business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a concept that doesn’t 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 concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted 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 residing in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to describe exactly how individuals ought to 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 been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo style produced for a Grand Prairie hair design studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo that conveyed a spirit of relaxation and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design which did not go the obvious course of designing just a stylized orchid but rather delivered a logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is in most cases the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the focus on the perception that they really wanted to project to their clients.

Arabian steed logo design produced for an equine ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian show equines.

Logo style for a software application programmer the style attributes and famous Grand Prairie aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it brands the business it represents.

A Grand Prairie business logo design featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly realized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a location to sell their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Grand Prairie logo design design using an image that garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized 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 farms, this Grand Prairie company logo style has an area incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo concept wasn’t really designed for an Grand Prairie area farm it was actually designed for a products broker, and this creative logo was one of several that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was actually to produce a graphic that projects trust, financial success, and opulence.

 Grand Prairie Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo layout feature for outwardly dealing with arrowhead as well as 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 preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the flexibility to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this particular case, I hit a bullseye with the first try.

Logo design made for using a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script typeface that is evocative a well-known Grand Prairie sporting activities group logo design.

I’ve created dozens of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bakeshops 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 proprietor to produce a logo that 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 lighted signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
