This logo is for my brand as a DJ (/electronic music producer - like Skrillex, Marshmello, Tiesto, etc).
The name "MEDUSA LIVES" is about breathing life into a fantasy, and the rebirth of a mythical fgure, Medusa (though please note- I do not want Medusa, if incorporated into the logo, to be characterized as feminine - because I am male). The DJ brand is about fantasy, story, the magical, and the epic.
I am including a jpeg of some of my favorite DJ logos. I would like one in a similar vein, easy to read but playful and imaginative and memorable, that incorporates both the text "MEDUSA LIVES" and some kind of visual depiction. Snakes, A head with snake eyes or ominous eyes and snake for hair, whatever it may be - but both text and a visual depiction (please see example sheet).
In the example sheet my favorites are Marshmello and Illenium.
-Probably all uppercase letters since most DJs do this
-Looking for something -somewhat- sinister and -somewhat- aggressive looking in the style.
-Not overly complex (please see examples) it needs to look good as a cutout /solid color without gradients / color differences
-Maybe text that looks handmade (or regular text, up to your creativity)
-Attaching example of what ominous eyes could look like, if eyes are incorporated (Medusa's stare turns people to stone, so eyes could work really well)
-Attaching a picture of my hairstyle, which is part of my brand (I have dreads and shaved sides, very similar to medusa and the snakes)
-I am open to ideas but I think something with Medusa / Snakes will work the best for this logo - Resembling Medusa even if you dont see the text of it.
-Please let me know if you have any questions!!! Thanks everyone!!
