We are a new British rock band who require a sharp, clean, memorable logo to help us really stand out.
Our lead singer is a graphic designer so will be heavily involved in liaising with your during the process. He’s excited at the prospect of working with some great designers out there to turn our concept for a logo into reality.
Please ignore the logo choices we had to make when setting up this competition. None of them really reflect what we are aiming for.
We will use the winning logo on all our marketing and social media material so it needs to work well at a variety of sizes and on different colour backgrounds.
To help reinforce our brand and keep things unified we plan to use the logo as the cover of the new album (so fingers crossed the winning design should get some great exposure).
Whilst we currently have firm ideas on what we (think) we want that doesn’t mean we aren’t open to alternative suggestions. If you’ve got a great idea that you think will work pitch it!!!
We are thinking a single tone design may be the most striking as you’ll see from the concept we’ve uploaded. This is just something we’ve thrown together but hopefully it will give you a flavour of what we’re hoping to achieve.
The album cover is 95% likely to be solid black so something that works for this is hoped for.
Clearly design is subjective but broadly the look we are hoping for is as follows:
Modern. The music we play is classic British rock but we want to be perceived as modern and forward looking.
Cool contemporary. OK, so cool is impossible to define, but great design is great design. Just because we are a rock band the logo should look as sharp and modern as though we were the most underground drum and bass act.
Character based. We want a monkey. Because of course we are Rain Monkey. But it should be a monkey with attitude. We don’t want cute and fluffy. We want cool, possibly moody, possibly happy, possibly determined, etc. etc. We want a monkey who is too cool for school. Who could forge steel or be plastered on a B52 bomber.
If a tie in with rain could be added so much the better. But we don’t want to be clichéd so this might be a challenge.
We’re looking forward to seeing your concepts. Good luck. And if you’ve questions just ask!
