Initials (SM) + Full artist name (Scott McLeod)
- Iconic, eye-catching, clean, artistic/abstract and unique
- Initials fit into a square space (not rectangular)
- I am open to various color schemes. However, I am partial to [black, red and white], [black, azure blue and white] and [black/grayscale]. Gold could be cool.
- Suggestion: I like the imagery of a wing(s). This does not have to be a part of the design element but if you come up with a great idea that includes a wing(s), then fantastic.
- I do NOT want cliched music imagery (e.g. notes, guitars, piano keys, etc) unless it is done in a subtle or abstract way.
The main priority is the initials element of the logo (SM) that should be the central element of the design. The initials should be able to stand alone (in a (more or less) square space or in equidistant proportions). With the initials as the central design element, I also need the full artist name (Scott McLeod) in a stylized manner, or in a unique graphic design configuration, integrated into the full design with the initials element. To be more specific, the entire logo would be the artist's initials (SM) with the full artist's name Scott McLeod integrated into the logo, whether that is circumscribed around it in a circle, placed below, or any other creative placement/integration. However, the initials design should be able to stand alone as it's own entity once the full artist name and any extra design elements are dropped out. I need this because some applications will require the full name logo for name recognition and such, while other instances in marketing, branding and merchandising will only use the initials element as a pure iconic symbol.
I've included several logos that give you an idea of what aesthetically appeals to me for the design of this logo. These are just suggestions based on images I could find. Please do not let this limit your creativity. A love the unusual and the unique. A good design is a good design.
