How darkobres started their logo design journey

Company name

Kloven Studio

Overview

I'm a sculptor and artist that is interested in interesting exoskeletons and odd connections in the art I create. My art is dual-natured, half good, half bad.1 part minimal and 1 part detail. Half dark / half light. Recurring themes in my work are things like masks, insects, bones, fish, parasites, puppets, shells, cocoons, horns, scars, teeth, tusks, things hidden inside other things. My word deals with the timeless loop, evolution, antiquity, pain, banishment, redemption, limbo, life cycles, death, birth. The word 'kloven' means "split in 2". One side dark and the other light. Not balance acheived from unity, but by opposites. I'm looking for a logo that represents this duality. I both paint and sculpt, so I'm a fan of both line and form.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

My target audience is art lovers who have taste for somber, dark art. These people may listen to Nick Cave or Tom Waits.

Requirements

This logo should represent duality. It's important that it have a timeless appeal. It's important it not have blood or guts or human skulls. With this subject matter it is very easy to design something immature, corny or cheesy. Please create a design that is noble, interesting and melancholic.
Typography: Fonts can be established or custom. It should have the word 'Kloven' rendered larger than the word 'Studio'. I have no preference on capitalization. This logo may be minimal or ornate.
Icon: This logomark must inlude an icon. Icons can be an abstracted symbol or representational. For possibilities I please refer to the recurring items in my work above (masks, insects, bones, fish, parasites, fossils, puppets, shells, cocoons, horns, scars, teeth, tusks, thorns, feathers, things hidden inside other things, etc.) I welcome any your creativity and suggestions.
Colors should be simple and limited. Possible colors include: black, white, bone, warm grays, clay. You may also use muted colors.
This logo may be minimal or have a sculptural 3D feel. It should be rendered on 3 backgrounds: white, "brown paper or cardboard color" and black. It may be a bit 'grungy' (but not overdone) or have a handmade, inky quality.
Please use original work only. No clipart please.
