I recently finished some logos for a new recording studio in Denver, CO called Queen City Sound. Awesome guys over there doing great work with vintage analog gear and newer technologies. The collaboration between designer and client made the final outcome something everyone is proud of. A main logo, horizontal space logo and stamp were created. Some iconic silhouetted Denver buildings were used in place of the normal queens crown. Simple shapes were added to symbolize the obvious headphones. Finally the typography has been warped in such a way as to give depth and form a human head and face. A horizontal logo was created for long, skinnier, horizontal spaces. The stamp is for very small spaces and can also be used as an alternative main logo when no typography is desired. Click this post to check out Queen City Sound for more information on what they're up to. When it comes to logos everyone seems to have an opinion on what they should look like and how they should function. I think the most important is to have a simple, obvious and instantly recognizable message. If people have to ask themselves what a particular element in the logo is then it's a fail in my book. Every part needs to have purpose otherwise it hinders the overall message. What do you think? Reply in the comments section below. Until next time, Bark! Bark!
Happy new year! I hope 2017 turns out to be just as exciting and productive as 2016. I plan to try and get outdoors a lot and also create loads of artwork this year, I want to find more time to go mountain biking, and of course this is the year I get healthier with my eating habits (hopefully). Leave a comment below about what you're looking forward to in 2017? Hopefully more mountain biking... just kidding. Until next time, Bark! Bark!
