Are you trying to create a musical brand mark for your company but don’t know where to start?
Start with the simple images around you that are related to tunes and add a distinct and innovative touch to them.
Using simple images helps the customer easily understand the nature of your business whereas the innovation in the design will assure them of your creative skills.
Let’s have a look how we can make those simple images innovative and distinct.
1. Musical Instruments – Guitar or Piano:
If you are trying to create a good music logo design for a dramatics school, then you can use images of a guitar and a piano and add a modern touch. How about illustrating a silhouette of the instruments or using multi colored thin lined fonts for the design. How about drawing half of the guitar image and concealing the other half with colored screen to add an element of mystery to the emblem.
2. Sound waves:
Sound waves are trendy and innovative. They are electrifying and they give you a broader margin for creativity. You can use thin lines of electricity or you can use different bright colors for your brand mark. You can play with bars, columns or waves. Sound waves are great if you want to add a sizzling touch to your trademark design.
3. A microphone, headphones or records:
If you are trying to create a brand mark for a radio station or dance group, then you can add images of microphones or headphone in your business emblem. You can create a silhouetted illustration of a man with headphones, a microphone with sound waves emitting from it or a company initial wearing headphones. You can also use an image of a stack of records or substitute an image of a record with the letter O in the corporation name.
4. Musical notes:
Tune notes are quite generic for this industry’s brand marks so how about adding an innovative touch to them?
How about creating a blood red note and adding devil’s horns to it or a light blue one with a halo?
How about adding a flower on top of the note or a fox’s tail?
You can use something as simple as a musical note and adding novel touches to it by drawing it in different colors or coupling it with other symbols.
Another great idea is to draw a big initial of the company name consisting of small images of the notes. That may look simple and generic at first sight, but on careful observation will add a clever and innovative feel to your trademark.
5. Acoustic icon:
If your free music logo consists only of your company name then you can add small symbols to accompany it. How about adding an acoustic icon?
If you want to give the viewers a realistic feel of the loud sound that your trademark can emit then you can create a lot of waves in the figure; the more the waves, the louder the icon.
Remember to use images that are related to harmony or that remind you of it so that this is what the customers will think of when they look at your symbol.
