TIPS ON IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A logo design is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design firm presents a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they simply cannot reimburse the amount of time you invest which is eminently more valuable than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but ultimately a design firm can only be evaluated from the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio does not contain real life samples odds are they will not be able to deliver a quality logo design.

VISION

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

We have performed brand design work for mechanics, schools, heart surgeons, party planners, cafes, retailers, and virtually every other kind of business concern you can envision.

Our sign first method insures that our logo designs are just as successful whether they are used in television commercials or web apps, they are consistently recognizable, understood, and remembered irrespective of size or application.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference that really sets ImageCo apart from other design agencies that you might possibly have come across in search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are retained to perform, we perform in-house. Irrespective of the type of design project we take on, business logo, website design, trade show banners, or retail sign, we do not, and never will farm out our customer’s projects to 3rd parties located outside the USA. When you call us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that answers the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the cost of your project and dictates the terms of how my customers and I conduct business.

QUALITIES OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Vancouver company realizes that they require a logo, but few start-ups entirely comprehend the essential role their organization’s logo will perform in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo performs more effectively than another. A logo design has an instant and long-term effect on the success of a company, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Vancouver companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need scrutiny, they can be comprehended in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable business logo will be legible and equally emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any type of device, in print, on product 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 company they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be ageless and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb and also a noun, it’s an identifying mark and also the process of marking something to make sure that it can be distinguished, its foundation comes from the mark burned onto livestock. These days a brand signifies pretty much anything with an objective, regardless if it be profit or government agencies, a brand is an inherent aspect of specifying the value of something in the consumer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s sexy cousin, they are each from the very same family, the distinction being that marketing and advertising have to do with making a promise and branding’s goal is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a calculated popularity contest directed at a target market, it’s goal is to create an image that the target market can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and also identity design. When somebody states the names Lamborghini or Corvette what we consider 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 transport 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 want those brands. Brand image is why people buy specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the history of many branding agencies you’ll discover that they are quite often re-branded advertising firms. When someone says they are in advertising and marketing most individuals will likely have an idea about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, felt or heard become part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a designer that focuses on a type of visual design which helps shape the perception of a firm, a product or a business organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, product packaging, as well as collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and also pamphlets. Some identity designers also develop web sites and software interfaces. The necessary duty of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and an emotional tone with the goal of influencing actions, outcomes and understandings.

Featured signs/logos

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening in an old section of the community and wished to project a nostalgic atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs by means of designing a logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria made for Vancouver medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that deals with the laboratory examination of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the only instance I recollect where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, yet it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 brand that helps make it more appealing, more attention grabbing and even more memorable.

logo design with a leaping green frog created for a household enjoyable center in Vancouver.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool 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 produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege 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 integrate a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually resonate an atmosphere 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better lively high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they utilized for marketing and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I did was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Vancouver traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead project emotional experiences through the images they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo by employing 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Vancouver logo but also to illustrate the depth of her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Vancouver logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

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

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

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo recognize how essential a logo design is for their company so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo project possesses it’s allotment of obstacles, but the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, layout for Vancouver publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, however it is the most critical part of a published book given that it is in most cases the first thing a person sees in the book shop. With regard to a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will likely ever get to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems like that in many cases one of the aspects folks tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up 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 affording a sense of airline flight and it was definitely a success.

 Vancouver logo style utilized for marketing as well as a label layout for Vintage Case features an old font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in new cases for musical instruments, which looked to be much older cases. For this custom logo design I tried to come up with a logo that provided a fluid vintage feel to it and could be used for everything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different generation.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Vancouver, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs because it appears that each and every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dentists do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo nevertheless 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 really enjoy doing dentistry logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a concept that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters startled in height to represent a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions 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 found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain exactly how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo design developed for a Vancouver 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 required a logo that carried a sense of ease and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious direction of creating merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a company logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is more often than not the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the main focus on the perception that they wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Arabian steed logo layout developed for a horse cattle ranch that concentrates on breeding Arabian program equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo layout for a software programmer the style features and also renowned Vancouver element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection in between the software program and hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the substance supporting a logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

Progress logo layout produced for a Vancouverindoor designer, design attribute a collection of red circles that converge and replace the letter O in the middle of the logo design.

A Vancouver business logo design including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly knew the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a location to market their secondhand products to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Vancouver business logo design using a graphic which captures the attention of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor 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 illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo layout MQ farms, this Vancouver company logo style has a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo design wasn’t actually designed for an Vancouver area farm it was really designed for an investments broker, and this creative logo was one of multiple that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was actually to generate a graphic that projects trust, effectiveness, and affluence.

 Vancouver Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo style function for ostensibly facing arrowhead and also the arrowheads imply that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design they preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the opportunity to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo created for making use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is similar to a popular Vancouver sports group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed quite a lot of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked closely with the owner to produce a logo design that worked really 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 sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
