POINTERS ON DETERMINING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo is an investment in both your time and your money so when a design firm presents a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can’t reimburse the amount of time you commit which is much more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design agency can only be evaluated by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their portfolio does not feature actual examples odds are they will never be able to deliver a premium logo design.

VISION

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

Something which really sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you probably have come across in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are brought on board to do, we perform ourselves.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A POWERFUL LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Seattle company knows they need a logo, but few start ups entirely comprehend the crucial role their logo design can make in their financial success, or exactly why one logo performs far better than another. A company logo has a critical and long-term impact on the prosperity of a company, choose the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Seattle businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require consideration, they can be comprehended in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable business logo will remain legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  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 right, and they are suitable for the product or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb as well as a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the process of denoting something to ensure that it could be identified, its foundation comes from the brand burned onto animals. Nowadays a brand indicates virtually anything with an objective, regardless if it be revenue or political parties, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the value of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive cousin, they are all from the same family, the distinction being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity competition targeted at a target audience, it’s goal is to produce a mental image that the target market can connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When a person says the brand names Porsche or Mustang what we think about 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 image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and that 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 Companies – If you look back at the beginning of many branding agencies you’ll find that they are often re-branded advertising and marketing firms. When somebody says they are in marketing the majority of people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. However when somebody states “I am in branding”… it simply sounds much more impressive, probably it’s because many people do not understand what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and sexy.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that defines the visual aspects of a product or agency that affect perceptions. This mainly consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the colors used yet can additionally consist of sound, lighting, texture, signage, really anything that can be seen, felt or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a kind of visual design which helps shape the public image of a company, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers develop logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and collateral material such as cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some visual designers also build sites as well as software interfaces. The crucial role of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and also a psychological tone with the goal of influencing activities, results and understandings.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Seattle coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were opening up in an old part of the area and hoped to visualize an old-fashioned atmosphere without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished both of these tasks by means of creating a custom logo design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria designed for Seattle clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that studies the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that works with the clinical assessment of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Normally I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents quite 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 helps make it more captivating, more interest grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping green frog made for a family fun facility in Seattle.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool 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 usual of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an atmosphere 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a more lively high energy atmosphere.

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 and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - designed for Seattle travel professional 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 rather niche field of photography and I think it is a niche sector because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather communicate emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole 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 resonance that can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something much the same 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Seattle logo but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Seattle logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I truly savor and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, but 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 however the client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his scorn for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they loved the design and were able to persuade 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 alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their logo understand how important a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of challenges, however the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, layout for Seattle book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, however it really is the most necessary part of a published book because it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the book shop. For a publisher, it’s the best opportunity they will ever have to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

This 3 color design is vivid, picturesque 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 design has 2 letter A's with the bars changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart but it seems like that in many cases 1 of the items people tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a spirit of flight and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 Seattle logo design used for advertising and a label layout for Vintage Instance includes an old typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be vintage cases. For this brand design I tried to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different era.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Seattle, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs considering that it seems that almost every dentist features 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 professions when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything 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 associated to a dentist’s company logo but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

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

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

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy 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 business or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to describe exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that explains itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo which carried a feeling of contentment and class for their new hair salon. I created a concept which did not go the obvious direction 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 along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is generally the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the emphasis on the emotion that they wanted to project to their customers.

Arabian horse logo style produced for a steed cattle ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian program equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo created an original custom logo concept tailored to manifest the unique physical traits of the Arabian breed of equines. With a distinctive head shape and higher tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the very most immediately recognizable equine breeds in the entire world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Coffee shop logo style a little dining establishment, layout includes a changed script font style which hovers over a group of luxuriant lines and dots.

Logo design for a software application designer the layout features and renowned Seattle component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and hard drive operations. The kernel unites the computer 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 program and hardware.

The 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 identify anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it intimated something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance behind a logo is just as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.

Advance logo layout produced for a Seattleinterior developer, style attribute a series of red circles that converge as well as change the letter O in the middle of the logo style.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Seattle business logo layout featuring an angler in the center of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly understood the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a spot to sell their used products to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Seattle logo design design utilizing an illustration that grabs 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 average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

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

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo idea wasn’t actually designed for an Seattle area farm it was really created for a commodities broker, and this logo was one of several which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to produce a image that projects confidence, effectiveness, and affluence.

 Seattle Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo style attribute for ostensibly facing arrowhead and the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design they desired, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the flexibility to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without recognizing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this case, I nailed a bullseye with the first go.

Logo made for making use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is reminiscent of a popular Seattle sporting activities group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking in which I worked closely with the owner to develop a logo which worked extremely 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 which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
