I like very Modern design with a touch of vintage, especially because I use both vintage & modern audio equipment.
I favor modern Sans Serif font. Please no rounded, comic-sans style fonts.
I don't like oval shapes.
I don't like musical notes or anything found on sheet music; I find it too playful, campy, overdone, and less focused on my service, which is mixing.
I don't like consumer-type product images like headphones, audio cables, musical instruments, ipods, cassette tapes, CD's, vinyl records, etc. I am a professional music mixing engineer with high-end studio gear, so please stick with the equipment I use which I provided examples in the images (ie. mixing consoles, faders, knobs, rectangular VU meters, 2-inch tape machines, speakers, vacuum-tubes, digital audio)
Please try an idea with VU meter(s) if you can!! I provided plenty of examples :)
My slogan (for reference only, not to be in logo) is "Hear the colors of your sound." and “Amber is the color of our mixology.”
I like the idea of maybe incorporating some small-medium symmetrical stars, like arching, or on the sides or something (not required though).
I've been also thinking of somehow combining a city skyline (maybe at sunset or night but not required) with a glowing mixing console VU Meter, tape machine, studio equipment glowing into the city, or incorporated into the buildings, like buildings made of recordings equipment, etc.
Amber is the color I chose to visualize the warm, glowing tones that come from analog audio. Also because a lot of vintage audio hardware has components called "tubes" which are glass cylinders that literally glow an amber color like a vintage light bulbs. (I will attach some photo examples) Thanks!
