Hi designers! I'm loving the designs you've submitted to me, but a part of me wants to see what a logo would look like if we moved in a different direction. I'd like to see a logo with an emphasis on clean, straight lines with subtle curvature at certain points. It should focus on Dustin Ryan, font-focused, but with subtle design elements that make it unique. Clean lines, vintage vibes.
If you picture an album cover, and an artists name on that album cover and how it calls to attention, thats what I'm aiming for. Remember, that's not to say I don't like your other designs. i just want a few more options to look at.
I love silhouettes, so I think incorporating an acoustic guitar or vintage microphone silhouette into the logo could look good (but only if it works!). I'd like the logo to be warm and inviting. It should have clean, modern lines, but with a bit of retro coolness. I've attached examples of stuff I like. I'd like it to be more simple than complex, max 3 colors. I play soul music, so it helps to envision old 60's and 70's bands/singers and what kind of feel they're trying to get across in their music. Think huge brass sections and energetic drums.
Above all, AVOID GENERICNESS. Originality is highly valued and appreciated.
Here's a few samples on my YouTube page. I haven't been able to upload for a while (been busy with live stuff!), but it gives you a gist I think.
