We are a live band specializing in performing modern and fresh music covers. We provide entertainment to pubs and clubs, wedding venues, and corporate/function events.
We're looking for a logo that uses our band name (Acoustic Autograph) that has a grungy, urban feel to it - but does not look 'trashy' so as to appeal more to the higher profile venues.
Keywords like abstract, free-hand and scratchy, splotchy, brush, texturized, 'attitude', and urban comes to mind when thinking of the logo appearance. Our audience ranges from early 20s to anywhere above that. Our band members are a funky mid-30 age group.
There are a lot of different fonts that we like on this page here: http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/100-gr…nge-fonts/ We like the mixed earthen/textured look and feel.
The band name would need to stand out on both dark and light backgrounds as depending on the event (ie, wedding vs nightclub) we'd need use either a dark or light colored backdrop.
Please note that we DO NOT want to see:
Shiny/metal looking logosSkulls
Wedding related or cityscape imagery
'AA' or 'aa' abbreviations alone (reminds us of Alcoholics Anonymous)
We are open to ideas that include a rough/grungy emblem look behind the band name that encompasses different textures and styles - but this is not a must.
If possible, we would like to see incorporated in the logo a symbol or section of the artwork that can be used separately as a band icon or symbol without the actual band name (for use on backdrop during the show, or as a t-shirt logo for example, or just as a symbol that we can use to represent us) - but again, this is not a must.
IMPORTANT: We will need to know the font used, to incorporate this later in a website.
Thanks in advance for your efforts!
