STRATEGIES FOR FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design company offers a money back guarantee try to remember that they can’t reimburse the time you commit which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but inevitably a designer can only be evaluated from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio doesn’t feature actual examples chances are they won’t be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s goal is to reflect your personal vision for your organization. If a designer isn’t focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how soon they will get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Provo entrepreneur realizes that they need a logo, however few start-ups thoroughly grasp the crucial role their logo design will make in their financial success, or precisely why one logo design functions better than another. A company logo has a critical and long-term impact on the prosperity of a business, go with the right one and it can 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 span of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Provo companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t need contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from label to retail signs a scalable logo will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that 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 personal, and they are suitable for the product or company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the act of marking something to make sure that it could be distinguished, its foundation originates from the mark burned onto livestock. Nowadays a brand represents basically anything with an objective, whether it be revenue or political parties, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the worth of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s sexy sister, they are all from the 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 directed at a target market, it’s objective is to create an image that the audience will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person says the names Lamborghini 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 vehicle 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 exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes people purchase those brands. Brand image is why individuals buy most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that we can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the origin of the majority of branding companies you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded marketing companies. When a person says they are in advertising the majority of people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a type of visual design that helps shape the public image of a firm, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers create logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and also collateral material such as business cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some identity designers also build websites as well as user interfaces. The necessary function of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues as well as a psychological tone with the goal of influencing activities, outcomes and perceptions.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Provo coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an older section of town and wished to project a vintage tone without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs by means of creating a company logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide as well as bacteria made for Provo clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the field of medicine that works with the clinical evaluation of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the sole instance I remember where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Usually I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, however it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 brand that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo layout with a leaping green frog made for a household enjoyable center in Provo.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not 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 better dynamic 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 utilized for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Provo traveling digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but rather reveal emotional experiences by means of the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they often tell entire stories through 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 that can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Provo logo but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Provo logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the client 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 but my client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to discuss it with colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they really liked 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 insert 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 proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their business logo understand how important a logo design is for their organization so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo design job has it’s portion of difficulties, but the greatest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Provo publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most essential part of a printed book due to the fact that it is often the primary thing a person views in the bookstore. For a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will ever have to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems that in many occurrences one of the items consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a good sense of air travel and it was definitely a winner.

 Provo logo design utilized for advertising and a tag design for Vintage Instance features an old font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

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

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Provo, layout include an arc with lines converging with it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that each and every dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo 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 care industry.

I actually love doing dental care business logos simply 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 stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a design 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 particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a household nonprofit, the logo includes 4 characters startled in height to represent a family 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 love that William McNally had for the families in his community. The majority of 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 very literal about 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 institution wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a Provo hair style studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design that related a spirit of relaxation and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept that did not go the obvious path of creating merely a stylized orchid but rather designed a business logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is oftentimes the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the importance on the perception that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Arabian equine logo layout created for a steed cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo created a unique company logo design customized to manifest the unique physical traits of the Arabian kind of horses. By having a different head shape and very high tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the highly quite easily identifiable equine breeds in the whole world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Cafe logo layout a tiny dining establishment, design contains a modified manuscript font style which hovers over a team of luxuriant lines as well as dots.

Logo style for a software application developer the design features and also legendary Provo component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and hard drive managing. The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge in between the software and computer 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 spell out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it symbolized something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a logo is equally as important as how it brands the company it stands for.

Advance logo design developed for a Provointerior designer, style attribute a series of red circles that intersect as well as change the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

An interior designer is an individual who plans, explores, coordinates, and oversees such ventures.

A Provo business logo layout including an angler in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly recognized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell off their previously owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Provo logo design with an image which garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this Provo company logo layout has an area integrated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo design wasn’t actually composed for an Provo area farm it was in reality created for a commodities broker, and this particular company was one of several which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was actually to create a graphic that projects esteem, effectiveness, and prosperity.

 Provo Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo design function for outwardly dealing with arrow and the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the flexibility to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo created for making use of an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is evocative a renowned Provo sporting activities team logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed loads 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 bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking in which I worked directly with the proprietor to create a logo design 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 which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
