We are a recording studio in San Diego, CA. Currently our claim to fame is not that we are the biggest, have the most equipment or the most visually flashy, etc. The small circle of private and celebrity musicians who know about this studio know it's a place where you go to get some seriously creative work done. It's not about looking good or being seen, it's about producing the best possible sound.
We love working with all types of artists and genres of music however we're not known for attracting many hip hop or rap artists, nor is this typically the place DJ's/Producers come looking for beats. Our artists are everything from singer/songwriters to full scale bands. Our quality is on par with the top studios in Hollywood yet our pricing is attainable for most everyone.
We are developing our brand from scratch so we apologize for the lack of information however here is some additional insight into how we anticipate using our name, Stealth, in our brand.
Our studio is somewhat small and unassuming from the outside and until very recently has had no marketing being done on it's behalf, hence the name "Stealth" (because no one except for those with a direct invitation knew about it). It's been a travesty that this studio has not been widely known all over Southern California though because the sound we're able to produce out of it rivals the top studios in Hollywood. Our biggest hidden gem is our sound engineer who, despite his lack of marketing, has an impressive list of credits and is renowned in elite musician groups as one of the best sound engineers in the business.
Pictures of the studio are attached however we might be doing some redecorating soon so you don't necessarily need to incorporate the studio's color palate into the logo.
What we mean by "Stealth" in our branding is that musicians are going to be blown away by the quality of music that comes out of our 'under the radar' studio. With our extensive knowledge, state of the art equipment and signature room acoustics, our highly creative, supportive and talented team will work with each performer to extract talent out of them that went beyond the client's expectation of themselves. They are literally going to (stealthily) sneak up on themselves and create a quality of music they hadn't thought possible. This all leads to our website domain name....wwwAreYouStealth.com.
PLEASE DO NOT USE: anything obvious such as....
Stealth bombers - or anything military related
Detective - or anything related
Guns - or anything related
Music Symbols - i.e. Treble or Bass Clef, musical notes, etc. (we typically don't like anything too obvious unless y'all come up with a logo that incorporates art that looks musical done in a really creative way.)
WHAT WE DO WANT IN A LOGO:
Something Edgy, Take Artistic Risks
Make a Statement
Be the first clue that our studio's team members are fun, creative risk takers
Show off our cutting edge studio branding
Something that leaves a lasting impressions among the thousands of traditional studios, studio websites and studio logos in the nation
We're open to focusing mostly on the "Stealth" and "Studios" parts of our name and not featuring "Recording" in the artistic elements of the logo if that makes it any easier. You could also come up with something creative for the word "Stealth" and have the full company name (Stealth Recording Studios) underneath it. You could also create a cool monogram logo incorporating SRS if that gives you inspiration. The brand is being developed from scratch so you're welcome to take any artistic liberties while we co-create our branding.
Thank you for reading this and for your support! I hope this all gives more insight into the brand we're looking to create.This will be my fourth time working with the 99Designs designers and you guys have never let me down!
Side Note: This studio is the suite next door to our other music business, Republic of Music. Republic of Music is an entertainment agency that books cover bands for corporate and wedding events. These company's will overlap quite a bit so I think it's important for you to get a sense of the branding of our other business so they are somewhat complimentary if at all possible. Please visit our website to get a sense of that business. (http://www.romprod.com). (99Designs made that logo for us a few months ago and we are loving it!!!)
