Please nothing cliched to our industry; no microphones, sound waves, ears, speakers, film reel.
POSSIBLY something very loosely related to the film, tv, and sound industry but more abstract.
We got an extension because we feel we we did not give the designers enough information to go on. (Sorry we are sound people, not visual people :)) We really like the "Compression and Rarefaction" design image. It represents sound waves flowing through air molecules. We also like the halftone pattern if it can be designed well and is thought out.
Please note that halftone and "compression and rarefaction" differ as half tone has different sized dots and the "compression and rarefaction" has same size dots but are closer and further to each other. We also really like the compression and rarefaction pattern more than half tone ( it represents us better and is a good abstract pattern), maybe it can be incorporated into the text or font, to have the pattern flow down the lettering? Or an abstract symbol that incorporates it? Maybe a texture? Please note any fonts that are half tone should look good shrunk down small as well, so dot size will be important if taking that direction.
We also like bolder fonts, think Helvetica or Oswald
Thank you and please feel to ask us questions if you need us to clear anything up.
We are really hoping to encourage the designers to go beyond simple designs that can be found on other free sites, or images we can create on our own. Thank you so much!
An LED audio meter bridge design is very cliched to us
