We love designs that are clever in concept and distinctive style.
The Everscore logo should communicate (without being as bland as a book and music note)
1. A reference to sheets, books, libraries
2. Music notes, music, songs
3. Interactive, electronic, digital
4. A network of people underneath the surface of the app
Initial Ideas and Suggestions:
Color/texture - the overall impression should NOT be of an "old" music book because that is exactly what it is not. In a way, it is a hybrid, offering something as traditional as music sheets, but transforming the way in which it is used digitally. Perhaps to reflect this duality - the cover color/texture can reflect the tradition and warmth, while the music note logo reflect the tech/modern feel.
The Paper53 logo does a nice job at communicating its offering - paper, paint, but the logo is modern. Similarly, the Procreate app logo shows that its a painting application, but one that is modern. The Parse Cloud app shows that gears are hard at work powering underlying function.
We would like to to see something similar - where the page/book/sheet is like that of Paper53 (authentic, warm) + the music note logo is like Procreate (tech, colourful, modern, sexy) + a sneak peak of music sheets or people playing music underneath like the gears of Parse.
