Making Killer Drums Since 1978
Entertainment & The Arts
We produce hand drums for drummers all over the world. Our main instrument is the "cajon" or box drum. It is a wooden box that is played by sitting on it and striking the front surface of the box between your legs. Our competitors are Meinl, Pearl, and Schlagwerk drums. Our audience is primarily male drummers who want to play hand drums. They may have a rebellious streak. They want their drum to be bigger, louder, and more powerful than the others.
Logo types to explore
We'd like the option for the logo to read "Killer Bear" with "drums" placed in smaller type possibly below it or in some way to show "drums" as sub-text. But it will be great to have the words Killer Bear stand alone as a logo as well. We're very interested in a simple picture or design that communicates the brand message and can be stamped on the front playing surface of the box drum or "cajon" that we make. Please look at the drum brands Schlagwerk or Meinl for an example of this kind of design and how they place it on the front playing surface of the drum box. Also look at the image used for the Skullcandy logo- simple and direct, and fitting to spray paint on things. We'd like Killer Bear to represent an underground movement of street drumming, or "grafitti music" We love Banksy and the subversive nature of his brand / logo. Among the images we uploaded, we like the bear face mark inside the turquoise circle the best. Our drums are known for having a big bass sound compared to competitors, so we want the brand to feel strong, solid, massive, aggressive, with an element of secrecy or sneakiness like a bear in the wild. We'd also be open to a design that uses a bear paw or something similar. You strike the drum like a bear would swipe with his paws, so that could be a fitting image too.
