Wilmington Delaware Logo Design
A unique custom logo design is the cornerstone of a strong Wilmington brand image.

ImageCo is the online portfolio of Tim Garner; I’ve been a designer for over 25 years and I specialize in helping businesses and individuals in Wilmington and elsewhere sell their products, their services, and their ideas. My services are as varied as my background and range from business branding and logo design to web design and other supporting design and marketing services. Ultimately I do whatever it takes to help my customers compete and achieve success; even if that means redirecting them to someone that is better equipped to handle their specific needs.
The ImageCo Portfolio
The work featured in this portfolio was chosen to highlight various skills I’ve developed over the years. Some of the designs were chosen simply because I like the design or I feel the piece demonstrates my range. Every design in this portfolio is an original work created by one designer and in no small measure the people that hired me to help them define their brand image. If some pieces have a familiar look it’s probably because another artist broke ground before me, I merely followed their path. Richard Harding Davis once said, “The secret of good writing is to say an old thing in a new way or to say a new thing in an old way.” The same could easily be said for design.

You probably did a search for Wilmington logo design or web design and ImageCo was in the results, this was intentional on my part. I provide for a family of 5 and just like every other responsible father I do absolutely everything within my power to take care of them. So I market my design services in Wilmington as well as every other community that I think may have a need for what I offer. I have customers throughout the US and Canada, in fact I now have customers on 6 continents…I’ve given up on ever doing business in Antarctica though (penguins have little use for logos).
So, like me, you probably want to support your local economy and keep as much of your business as locally as you can but the truth is, it’s much harder to do today than it was when I was a kid growing up in the Midwest. Things have changed dramatically because we don’t really make all that many “things” anymore. Keeping our business local is one of the few ways we can support our local economies and when it comes to service based businesses like barbers and dentists, it only makes sense to go with a local Wilmington business (it’s not like you can import a haircut from China).
However, the difference between getting your hair cut in Wilmington and getting your logo designed there is fairly substantial. A good haircut will help you look good for a few weeks but your logo will be the visual identity of your business for years to come. A bad haircut will grow out but a bad logo is something you will be stuck with for a very long time and logos can be quite costly when you factor in the printing and advertising costs associated with getting your logo in front of people.
Regardless of where we live in this world, whether it be Wilmington or Seattle (where I now call home) our economies drive each others. The work I do out of my home office impacts the success of businesses all over the world and their success impacts their local economies because they have more income to spend locally and vice versa.
That being said, if you really have your heart set on working with a local designer I certainly understand. However, if your goal is to find the absolute best designer for your project, you might be glad that you found me once you take a couple of minutes to review my logo design portfolio and my web design portfolio.
ImageCo is the online portfolio of Tim Garner; I’ve been a commercial artist for over 25 years and I help businesses and individuals throughout the US and Canada sell their products, their services, and their ideas. I was born in the Southwest, raised in the Midwest, lived in the South for a bit and now call the Northwest home. I’m a fine artist by training, a graphic designer by choice and I’ve designed everything from billboards to business cards. In my spare time I feed a passion for photography, art and writing.

Accolades for ImageCo
The best thing about working with Tim is that he immediately grasps all the subtleties of a logo design – the feeling, the client image, the color, the shape, the ease of use in different print or web conditions – and then he easily and quickly translates that into an outstanding piece of art that works on many levels. He gets it, and that makes working with him a pleasure. Mike Neer/Owner We had been working with another logo design firm, but after two frustrating weeks we gave up on them and decided to look elsewhere. With a rapidly approaching deadline we hired Tim. He made our project a priority and managed to create a logo design that our team liked in just a few days. Tim was great! With some - slight - modifications to his original logo design we were ready to go. His logo design was fantastic and it captured the 'personality' of our product on his first try. We would definitely hire Tim again! Fred Hawkins/CEO Tim created the perfect logo design for us and I feel fortunate that we found him. Not only is he an honest, ethical and a straight-arrow businessman, he was a total pleasure to work with. We worked with some other logo designers on this but didn't like any of the logo designs they came up with. We ended up going with Tim's very first presentation and couldn't be happier. We liked his work on the logo design so much that we also had him do our website! We love that too. Chris Heidkamp/Owner I originally stumbled upon ImageCo's website by mistyping the address of the design firm we were presently working with. I immediately liked what I saw and asked ImageCo to review our new website. His comments reflected my thoughts exactly so I hired him and never looked back. Tim's keen design sense and insight into effective web design sets him apart from most designers. Over the years I've relied on Tim for all of our graphics needs, including web design and user interface design. Tim's design work has not only helped our company look more professional but it's also helped us to attract the "right" customers to our website. Thanks Tim! Bob Lambert/President The first time I worked with Tim, I was looking for someone to design a client's site. As head of a small advertising agency, I had a client with strong ideas of what they wanted. Tim did an exceptional job of interpreting their needs and created a site that is pleasing to visit and highly functional. I have worked with Tim on subsequent projects, primarily because he possesses a great sense of which concepts will work and the tact to explain why others won't. Peter Columbus/President ImageCo was just what I needed when I started my internet business, eCareerCenter. I was not really sure of how I wanted to present my new company and Tim really helped me focus my thoughts into short and long term goals. I had a certain style I was trying to portray and ImageCo really helped create it for me in a way that was different than what was already out there. As I look back on my first website launch, I am thrilled at how it turned out. I remember one part of the design process, I was trying to find pictures for my "Tour" section. Tim mentioned he had just what I needed. I am a bit of a control freak and was not sure how they were going to look. When I saw which ones were selected and how he designed the section, I knew I selected the right designer for my project. Jeff Fleming/Managing Director When I opened my new medical practice, I wanted a logo design to reflect not only my clinic's name, but also our Alaskan location. Tim took the time to learn what my clinic was like and what I wanted in a logo design. My new logo design reflects his skill and the time he took to understand what I needed. I enjoyed working with Tim in the design process, and hope to work with him again in the future. Rebecca White M.D. Tim has been a real pleasure to work with on the logo design for my TechXcite program. He provided several initial logo designs that my team and I considered. Then, through a series of iterations we arrived at the final logo design, which we are very happy with. Gary Ybarra "Tim at ImageCo was fantastic to work with! Mirea Pineda/Owner I looked at many different logo design firms before choosing ImageCo and ImageCo is by far the best. Tim at ImageCo helped us create a clean, cool, hip image for our company. He nailed it dead on! After working with Tim I would recommend his company to anyone looking for great design work at a great price. ImageCo understands branding in today’s competitive marketplace and we at Digital Eye Research will use ImageCo for all of our future branding needs. Tony Galeassi/President We came to Tim Garner to help guide us through the process of creating a new logo and website for our custom window treatment company. We couldn't have been happier with our experience. The result is a design and writing that possess clarity, simplicity, and beauty. Tim's assets are many, but his work embodies a rare combination of technical ability and artistic sensibility. Sal Deluca
