TIPS FOR FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever 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 valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature real life examples odds are they will never be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

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

We’ve done brand design work for farmers, educational institutions, diamond miners, party planners, coffee shops, retailers, and virtually every other kind of business you can think of. What makes ImageCo unique compared to our contemporaries is that our background is rooted in the electrical sign industry so we approach every design as if it will be used as an electric sign. Because of our sign first approach our designs can, and have been used in everything from clothing labels to neon signs. Our sign first method guarantees that our logo designs are just as effective whether they are used in TV commercials or web apps, they are consistently identifiable, understood, and always remembered irrespective of size or purpose.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference that seriously sets ImageCo apart from many of the design companies that you might have stumbled upon in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are contracted to do, we do in-house. No matter the kind of project we take on, logo, web page, trade show booth, or commercial sign, we do not, and never will job-out our client’s work to companies based outside the USA. Whenever you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a broker that marks up the cost of your design project and determines the conditions of how you and I conduct business.

QUALITIES OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Temple company realizes that they require a logo, however few start ups thoroughly understand the crucial role their logo can make in their success, or the reason that one logo functions far better than another. A logo has an immediate and lasting influence on the growth of a company, pick the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Temple companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need contemplation, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from clothing labels to billboards a scalable logo will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually any dimension.
  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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the item or business they brand.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is both a verb as well as a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the act of noting something so that it can be recognized, its genesis comes from the brand burned onto livestock. Today a brand represents basically anything with a motive, regardless if it be profit or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the value of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s sexy 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 goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest aimed at a target audience, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the audience will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person mentions 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 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 get specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the beginning of a lot of branding firms you’ll discover that they are quite often re-branded advertising companies. When a person states they are in advertising the majority of people will likely have an idea about what they do. Yet when somebody claims “I am in branding”… it simply sounds much more attractive, possibly it’s because the majority of people don’t know what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and even sexy.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that defines the visual aspects of a product or agency that influence view points. This mainly includes the name, the logo, the packaging, the colors utilized however can also consist of audio, illumination, texture, signs, just about anything that can be seen, touched or heard become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that concentrates on a type of visual design which helps shape the public image of a firm, a product or a company. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, packaging, as well as collateral material such as cards, stationery, as well as brochures. Some visual designers also develop sites and software interfaces. The vital duty of a brand identity designer is to establish the visual cues and an emotional tone with the objective of influencing activities, results and perceptions.

select logos & signs

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Temple coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually launching in an old section of town and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic atmosphere without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled the two jobs via developing a company logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Temple medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which deals with the laboratory evaluation of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the only instance I recall where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite 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 an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that helps make it more captivating, more focus grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog developed for a family members enjoyable facility in Temple.

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 also a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a some springs into the concept 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 logo project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy feeling.

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

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - designed for Temple travel 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 niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead convey emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they frequently share entire 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 just words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo design 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Temple logo design but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Temple logo layout with a seagull used 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 honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however the customer, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get honest point of views on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family 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 preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their business logo recognize how important a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo design job has it’s allotment of obstacles, however the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, layout for Temple publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most vital part of a published book because it is in most cases the primary thing a person sees in the book shop. For a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity they will ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go yet it looks like that in many cases one of the traits consumers tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a sense of airline flight and it was surely a victory.

 Temple logo style made use of for marketing as well as a label layout for Vintage Instance features an old font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be older cases. For this business logo design I attempted to come up with a logo that provided a fluid retro feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different generation.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Temple, style consist of an arc with lines converging with it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it seems that every dentist incorporates 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 business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dentists do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably have an image of a potato and a cow.

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

I actually love doing dentistry logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a design 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 design over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in height to stand for 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 brand identity design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to describe precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal 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 describes itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo design created for a Temple hair layout workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo that carried a spirit of tranquility and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious direction of crafting simply a stylized orchid but instead delivered a logo which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is oftentimes the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the emphasis on the perception that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

Arabian horse logo layout created for an equine cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian program equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo created a distinct logotype concept fashioned to embody the unique physical traits of the Arabian kind of equines. By having a different head form and high tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the very most quite easily identifiable equine lineages in the entire world.

Logo layout for a software application developer the layout attributes and also famous Temple 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 control, and drive operations. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a bridge in 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 situated a few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance behind a business logo is equally as important as how it serves the business it represents.

Evolve logo style produced for a Templeinterior designer, layout feature a collection of red circles that converge and change the letter O in the middle of the logo layout.

A Temple business logo design featuring a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly knew the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to sell their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Temple logo design using an illustration that garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew 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 Temple company logo style has a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand design wasn’t actually composed for an Temple regional farm it was really devised for a products broker, and this logo was one of multiple that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was really to produce a graphic that projects self-assurance, financial success, and affluence.

 Temple Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Factor Solutions - the logo design function for externally encountering arrow and also 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 they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants 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 exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the first try.

Logo design created for using an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is similar to a famous Temple sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have created 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 bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked directly with the business owner to produce a business logo that worked extremely well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
