WHAT WE WANT:
Sophisticated and timeless with an edge of contemporary is our style! We want something classy that will reflect the quality of the School.
Must be easy to read from a distance on a brass plaque. PLEASE take into consideration when designing the logo that something too intricate WILL NOT work (will be also engraved on a brass plaque to be mounted on the gate on a very busy street!) meaning lots of exposure for your logo design.
As you can see from our old ‘Rathgar Piano’ logo, we love purple and gold as they are very rich colors and they compliment each other. However we are open to other ideas so please feel free to express them! We also like black as it is in keeping with the keys of the piano.
We really like the "Steinway and Sons" Logo and font. What we like about it is that it incorporates two S's and a lyre which signifies music. We challenge you to come up with something even better! You might think about utilizing the letter PAI in some manner. We are open to new ideas as well so please don't hesitate to give them a try.
A different approach also would be the obvious way of utilizing the piano keys in some way into the logo.
WHAT WE DON'T WANT:
We do not want any cliched 'Irish' images such as Leprauchans, shamrocks or pots of gold swirling around piano keys.
