Pan Music is a free to use service that is intended to connect artists with fans/viewers all over the world in real time. Artists would play and speak in front of a camera and microphone that would broadcast their session live to an audience. The viewers could then donate and message the artist. If you are familiar with the website twitch.tv, it is the same concept except live music instead of live video games.
This is a new company concept designed to reach a broad audience of artists and fans of music. We need a distinct, recognizable logo that highlights either the pan flute concept (current design) or can capture the live, online element of the interaction in a completely new design. Unless you have a very creative idea for another symbol, please incorporate the pan flute image in some way. No strong preference on colors, but I wold prefer to limit the color scheme to one or two colors max (not overly colorful with 5 or 6 different bright colors).
I would prefer to have a freestanding element to represent the brand like Spotify with the circle image only logo alongside the name. I would like to incorporate the pan flute in some way as this is related to the name. You can see both these elements in the current logo. I don't like the colors in our current logo, but I do like the name and free standing image combo (but essentially nothing else about the design). If you can think of an interesting way to incorporate the pan flute into the wording, that might look nice as well, but previous designs did not look good that way.
We'd like the design to be minimalist like the attached examples. Clean and simple with a recognizable element to represent the company.
Thanks for your help! I'm looking forward to seeing the designs!
