POINTERS FOR FINDING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

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

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design firm can only be determined from the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not contain real life examples odds are they won’t be able to deliver a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to mirror your unique vision for your organization. If a designer isn’t focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE LOGO DESIGN

Every new Port Angeles business knows they need a logo, however few start-ups thoroughly recognize the key role their logo will make in their success, or exactly why one logo design functions far better than another. A company logo has an immediate and sustaining impact on the financial success of a business, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Port Angeles businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require deliberation, they can be grasped in merely a glimpse.

  3. Versatility: logos which work on any sort of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.

  5. Relevance: a logo needs to be lasting and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb and also a noun, it’s an identifying mark as well as the act of denoting something to ensure that it could be distinguished, its genesis originates from the mark branded onto animals. Nowadays a brand represents pretty much anything with a motive, whether it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of defining the worth of a specific thing in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive cousin, they are both from the very same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest directed at a target market, it’s goal is to create a mental image that the audience will likely relate to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody mentions the names Lamborghini or Mustang what we think of is their brand image, it’s an image 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 the mental image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, elegance, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals purchase those brands. Brand image is why individuals purchase most things, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the origin of most branding firms you’ll find that they are quite often rebranded advertising agencies. When someone says they are in marketing the majority of people will likely have an idea about what they do. But when somebody claims “I’m in branding”… it simply sounds much more attractive, probably it’s since most individuals don’t know what it implies to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that explains the visual elements of a product or business that affect view points. This mainly includes the name, the logo, the product packaging, the colors utilized however can additionally consist of audio, lighting, texture, signage, just about anything that can be seen, touched or listened to become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a graphic designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps form the image of a business, a product or a business. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some visual designers also design sites and also software interfaces. The important duty of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of affecting activities, results and also perceptions.

Featured signs/logos

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Port Angeles coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening up in an older section of the area and wished to cast an old-fashioned vibe without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I achieved each of the jobs via designing a company logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs created for Port Angeles clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which deals with the clinical assessment of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, 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 an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that makes it more interesting, more attention grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping green frog created for a family enjoyable facility in Port Angeles.

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 norm of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design 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 give the logo a better dynamic 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 utilized for marketing and advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I came up with was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for Port Angeles traveling 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather project emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they often share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with mere words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo design by using the positive space in the design to say 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Port Angeles logo but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Port Angeles logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really savor 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 idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A but my customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his hatred for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get objective point of views on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members 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 include every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their business logo recognize how essential a logo is for their company so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo design project possesses it’s share of difficulties, however the most significant obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Port Angeles publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most critical part of a published book considering that it is usually the very first thing a person sees in the book store. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will likely ever have to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems that in many cases 1 of the items consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a success.

 Port Angeles logo style made use of for advertising and marketing and also a label design for Vintage Instance features an old typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for music instruments, that looked to be antique cases. For this logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid vintage feel to it and could be used for everything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Port Angeles, style include an arc with lines converging with it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo jobs considering that it appears that virtually every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

I really love doing dental logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and subsequently 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 implied in the concept. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be overly literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to describe exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a Port Angeles hair design workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design that projected a feeling of ease and class for their new hair salon. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious path of designing merely a stylized orchid but rather delivered a logo design which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is oftentimes the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the attention on the emotion that they wanted to project to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo style created for a steed cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian show steeds.

Logo layout for a software program programmer the style features as well as famous Port Angeles aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Generally, 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 operates as a connection 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 describe anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it meant something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the meaning behind a company logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

A Port Angeles business logo style featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly recognized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Port Angeles business logo design using a graphic which garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Port Angeles company logo style has a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo concept wasn’t actually designed for an Port Angeles area farm it was actually created for an investments broker, and this creative logo was one of many that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to develop an identity that projected esteem, effectiveness, and affluence.

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the liberty to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without knowing where the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the first go.

Logo design designed for making use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is evocative a popular Port Angeles sports team logo.

I’ve created quite a lot of restaurant business logos and business 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 cool undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to develop a logo which worked very well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
