The hero of Edmond Rostand's play, Cyrano de Bergerac (1897) is famous for refusing to compromise on his values. He is a man of integrity. In other words, he practices what he preaches. Cyrano reminds us to never compromise on the quality of music we want to produce.
Cyrano exudes panache. He is a joyful poet, a fierce swordsman, a philosopher and a musician. He has a quick wit and a quick sword. His only problem: he has an enormous nose and he doesn't believe Roxanne, the girl he loves, will ever return his love because of the nose.
Possible features: Cyrano's big nose, hat, panache (a plume or feather) in his hat, sword, pen.
We thought it'd be interesting to not include images so as to free your creative mind. We will add images if needed. We love originals. We love panache.

The logo should exhibit: This company is up to something substantial! Who are these people? Intriguing.
We need a simple, intriguing picture of Cyrano de Bergerac along with the text, "Cyrano Records." It should not have musical notes, trumpets or anything goofy. If an inspiration strikes that somehow suggests music that's fine. Like an expression of Cyrano cupping his ear as he listens to beautiful music. But I expect not. Cyrano shouldn't be a cartoon. The image and the text should be classy.
Masculine but elegant. Cyrano could be shadowy, somewhat hidden under his hat. Or he could be drawn in full color with a mischievous smile. He could be merely a suggestive profile indicated by a small number of lines (for the nose, the hat, the panache). We think there is more danger of including too many elements rather than too few. If a person knows the play, he or she will understand right away. And if not, maybe they'll google it and go see or read the play.
The nose, the hat, the panache in the hat, and the text (Cyrano Records) are essential.
Thanks for looking. You're the artist. Let's see your vision.
