We are song writers / musicians and will soon release a new record & blog.
We know our names aren't the best for a logo, but see what you can do. We like things that are organic but not too fussy. Creative but clean. Balanced (symmetry wise) and think indie / hipster / rock and roll / rootsy / americana. We sometimes like Victorian influenced designs too.
Practically speaking, something clear to read - but not coorporate looking. Something neat that we can stamp on stuff.
We don't want anything that cliche. Please no generic fonts. We do like the hand drawn / hand written illusrated 'look' - nothing clip arty. Like americana styles but not if they cross over too much to cowboy / country / stars and such.
I'd prefer our logo not to be tooooo wide, because that's restrictive in designing stuff.
I've attached a bunch of 'logos' that appeal to me. Bands often change their logos with new cd's etc. That makes sense. So we're looking for something for this new season mostly as a header on a clean looking warm toned blog. A lot of the samples below aren't exactly logos, but please take a good look at those.
Here's a single we already released that will be the title track of the new project. Please take a listen so you can hear our vibe. You can see one design we liked from Instagram / all iPhone artist @TheHudson.
Our influences / what we have been told we sound like include Fleetwood Mac, The Civil Wars, Jon Foreman, Wilco, Emmylou Harris (Wrecking Ball), Mumford & Sons....
Thank you for joining us on this project. Please feel free to follow us on our current blog till the new one is up!
Maybe you can get a little taste of our vibe there too.
p.s Right at the bottom of the page you can see our ClarkeLaneMusic Logo. We have a Music Production business so we do like this logo and style.
