Modern logo for a music/video recording studio with a twist
Check out k3nsanders's Logo design contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
This is a logo for a recording studio based out of Holly Springs, NC with music (recording + private percussion lessons), video (music, web content and events), photography (portrait and events), and print (screen printing) capabilities. The target audience will include college age and above, as even though private lessons will most likely include school children, the marketing will be directed at the parents. The music and video aspects of the business are the strongest, so musicians, private lessons, and one-off video events are most likely the primary customer.
The name is a reference to legendary creatures, and when I first started playing with the logo idea I tried mocking things up using krakens, phoenixes, dragons, sea serpents, hydras, that sort of thing. I'd like to see some designs play with that idea, but it's not strictly necessary. Working in a music/video studio feel should be the secondary theme. Waveforms, spectrums and peak meter graphs are a favorite of mine if you're looking for a bit of inspiration. I definitely want a modern looking design, and it wouldn't offend me if some of the designs utilized a geometric design (but again, not strictly required) that featured angles over curves. Please don't use serif fonts, sans-serif all of the way. My initial mockup of the logo used the Montserrat font, so use that as inspiration if you want a starting point. As for colors, I'm open to a lot of things, but if you want to know my favorite color I tend towards turquoise, darker cyans, greens, and purples. A colored logo isn't an issue, but note I'm also ok with neutral/dark gray logos, as even a colored logo will probably be downsampled into gray at some point. This logo will be used for all channels of business, and will find its way into standard uses (website, posters, business cards, etc.), along with other uses such as window vinyls and social media headers. Common feedback that has popped up a lot: 1) I don't like "filled" graphics, I'm not looking for a logo where the central theme lives in negative space. Also, try to avoid framing borders (such as surrounding circles); whoever wins will have a minimal, flat logo. Think Material UI design icons as inspiration here. 2) I want the two words "Legendary" and "Studios" to be similar in size, don't exaggerate the difference between them and over-pronounce "Legendary." Sometimes the name will be used sans-graphic, so it should stand on its own and not be too extreme. 3) I lean towards the geometric design, so stray away from creature designs (assuming you incorporate that) that have too many curves, or are too "flow-y." 4) I don't want anything playful or cartoon-y, think modern and a bit of professionalism.

Firsada did a fantastic job of developing and merging all of the themes that I wanted present in the design. Blending a modern looking phoenix into the sound bars really gives the graphic the ability to work in a number of environments without ever feeling out of place.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
