POINTERS FOR DETERMINING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design company offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they simply cannot reimburse the amount of time you commit which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a designer can only be evaluated from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio doesn’t feature real life samples odds are they will not be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s goal is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to echo your unique vision for your company. If a designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how soon they can get paid.

ASPECTS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Nacogdoches business realizes that they require a logo, but few start-ups entirely comprehend the vital role their company logo can perform in their financial success, or the reason that one logo works better than another. A logo has an immediate and long-term influence on the viability of a company, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Nacogdoches companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not need scrutiny, they can be understood in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to retail signs a scalable logo will remain legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate 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 personal, and they are suitable for the item or organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is both a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark as well as the process of denoting something so that it can be identified, its genesis comes from the mark branded onto animals. These days a brand signifies pretty much anything with a motive, regardless of whether it be profit or political parties, a brand is an innate aspect of specifying the value of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s sexy cousin, they are each from the exact same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest targeted at a target market, it’s goal is to develop an image that the target market will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and identity design. When somebody says the brand names Lamborghini 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, elegance, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that is what makes people buy those products. Brand image is why people identify with most things, 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 the majority of branding agencies you’ll discover that they are often re-branded marketing and advertising companies. When someone claims they are in marketing most people will likely have an idea about what they do. But when a person says “I am in branding”… it simply seems more impressive, probably it’s due to the fact that many people do not fully understand what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and perhaps even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that describes the visual components of a product or company that affect view points. This mainly consists of the name, the logo, the packaging, the colors utilized but can also include sound, lights, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, touched or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that concentrates on a kind of visual design that helps shape the image of a firm, a product or a company. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, as well as collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some visual designers also design web sites as well as user interfaces. The vital function of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues as well as an emotional tone with the objective of affecting actions, end results and also understandings.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Nacogdoches coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening in an older part of town and wished to cast a nostalgic tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both of these tasks by means of creating a custom logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs designed for Nacogdoches medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of medicine which deals with the clinical evaluation of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Typically I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, but it does it in a way 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 eco-friendly frog developed for a household enjoyable facility in Nacogdoches.

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 norm of the types of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more dynamic high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design 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 did was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - made for Nacogdoches traveling 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 pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead project emotional experiences through the pictures 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 representative of most 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 often have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo by making use of 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Nacogdoches logo but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Nacogdoches logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A but my client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his aversion for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the value of a design 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo understand how important a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the final result. Every logo design job has it’s allotment of difficulties, but the greatest 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 providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Nacogdoches book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, but it really is the most critical part of a published book due to the fact that it is usually the first thing a person sees in the bookstore. Concerning a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it looks like that in many occurrences one of the things people often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a good sense of air travel and it was certainly a victory.

 Nacogdoches logo style utilized for advertising and marketing and also a tag design for Vintage Case includes an antiquated typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be much older cases. For this logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different point in time.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Nacogdoches, layout 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 because it appears that virtually every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless 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 dentistry industry.

I really enjoy doing dentist business logos 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 solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this concept over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters startled in height to represent a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his community. 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 very literal pertaining to 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 company 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 openly corny about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo layout created for a Nacogdoches hair layout workshop including a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design that related a feeling of tranquility and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious course of designing just a stylized orchid but rather crafted a business logo which suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is usually the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the main focus on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian steed logo style developed for a horse cattle ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo style for a software application programmer the layout attributes and also iconic Nacogdoches 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 administration, process and task management, and drive management. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the owner of the business and in many cases the significance behind a logo is just as important as how it serves the business it represents.

Evolve logo design developed for a Nacogdochesindoor designer, design function a series of red circles that intersect and replace the letter O in the center of the logo design.

A Nacogdoches business logo design including an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

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 goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly recognized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Nacogdoches business logo design with an illustration that captures the interest of vehicles and sends an image that evokes the passion 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 commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Nacogdoches company logo design has actually an area included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo idea wasn’t really developed for an Nacogdoches regional farm it was actually developed for an investments broker, and this trademark was one of a handful of that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was really to make a graphic that projects self-confidence, financial success, and wealth.

 Nacogdoches Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo layout feature for ostensibly encountering arrowhead as well as the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design that they preferred, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the flexibility to delve into any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where the target is. Luckily, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the very first try.

Logo design designed for the use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is similar to a popular Nacogdoches sports group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve created dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked directly with the business owner to create a business logo which 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 illuminated sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
