TIPS FOR PICKING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so whenever a design company presents a money back guarantee try to remember that they can not reimburse the time you invest which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but in the end a design firm can only be determined by the quality of their design work, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature actual samples chances are they will not be able to produce a quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s aim is to be recognized and be unforgettable, and it’s objective is to echo your personal vision for your organization. If a designer is not focused on fulfilling your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they will get paid.

QUALITIES OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Every new Oak Creek entrepreneur knows they require a logo, but few start-ups thoroughly recognize the essential role their company logo can perform in their becoming successful, or exactly why one business logo works more effectively than another. A company logo has a critical and lasting influence on the financial success of a company, go with the correct 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 life of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Oak Creek businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not need consideration, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any sort 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 organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be enduring and will feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understanding branding

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the act of marking something to ensure that it can be distinguished, its foundation comes from the brand burned onto livestock. Nowadays a brand signifies practically anything with an intention, regardless of whether it be earnings or government agencies, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of defining the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are each from the exact same family, the difference 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 aimed at a specific audience, it’s objective is to produce a mental image that the audience can identify with.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing as well as identity design. When somebody mentions the names Porsche or Corvette 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 image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, beauty, of something dangerous and sexy . That is brand image and that is what makes individuals purchase those products. Brand image is why individuals buy specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you look back at the history of most branding firms you’ll find that they are quite often rebranded advertising firms. When someone claims they are in marketing most people 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 Designers
– A brand identity designer is a designer that specializes in a type of visual design which helps form the image of a company, a product or an organization. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and collateral material such as cards, stationery, and sales brochures. Some identity designers also develop sites and also user interfaces. The important duty of a brand identity designer is to create the visual cues and a psychological tone with the goal of influencing actions, end results and also assumptions.

Featured logos & signs

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a Oak Creek coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually launching in an older part of the area and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic vibe without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled both of these tasks via designing a custom logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and germs created for Oak Creek medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that researches the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which works with the clinical evaluation of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the only instance I call to mind in which I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Generally I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents very literally, but it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 name that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping green frog created for a household fun facility in Oak Creek.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 norm of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a some 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better lively high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and integrated 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 fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - designed for Oak Creek traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead convey emotional journeys by means of the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo by employing 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Oak Creek logo but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Oak Creek logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I truly savor and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A however the customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his contempt for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they adored 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo design understand how essential a logo design is for their company so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo design job has it’s allotment of challenges, however 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 business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Oak Creek book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow piece of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most critical part of a printed book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the primary thing a person sees in the book shop. Concerning a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will likely ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

This three color design is vivid, colorful and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go nevertheless it looks like that in many instances 1 of the items consumers tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a spirit of flight and it was certainly a winner.

 Oak Creek logo style used for marketing and also a label layout for Vintage Instance features an archaic font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for musical instruments, which appeared to be older cases. For this brand concept I tried to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could easily be used for everything from a website to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another point in time.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Oak Creek, design consist of an arc with lines converging through it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most difficult logo design jobs because it seems that virtually every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo 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 dental profession.

I really enjoy doing dentist logos 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 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 single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a household not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 characters staggered in height to stand for a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to explain precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout created for a Oak Creek hair design studio including a script font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo which projected an atmosphere of simplicity and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious path of creating just a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is usually the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the emphasis on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

Logo layout for a software designer the layout attributes and famous Oak Creek component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and drive operations. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a bridge 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 located a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it symbolized something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a company logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

A Oak Creek business logo layout including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly knew the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a location to market their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Oak Creek business logo design using a graphic which garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind the passion 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 image of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Oak Creek company logo style has a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo design wasn’t really designed for an Oak Creek area farm it was really designed for a commodities broker, and this particular business logo was one of a handful of which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was actually to create a brand mark that projects confidence, financial success, and wealth.

The Turning Point Foundation was completely 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 investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without knowing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo design designed for the use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is similar to a renowned Oak Creek sporting activities team logo design.

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 United States, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to design 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 illuminated signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
