Industry

Entertainment

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Playful metal
#2 - Americana
#3 - Sports establishment

Our Target Audience:

Metal fans, heavey metal fans, alternative metal fans, regular people. The logo isn't really supposed to look metal - more of a casual and playful.

Psychographics: Heavy drinking, casual drug-taking, honesty, loyal, modest.

Color Preferences

This is up to you, we like classic colors. Design can be weird, but not the colors. No neon, pastel, nothing too girly. It can be neutral or a bit more towards the masculine.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

We would like a circle encasing our band name, possible slogan and a monkeys head.Our band mascot is a monkey - He is crazy and has only one eye. One in the same sense as Leila in Futurama or just a cyclops.. We would like to see some baseball style logos with baseball texts. There should be room for a slogan and a monkeys head within the circle.

We would love to see an angry, stoned monkey that is not in profile (from the side). We like happy colors, like our reference image from Cardwell. We would like to have the text inside the circle, the monkey and slogan above and below the text and nothing inside the encasing circle. Just a plain circle around it (or something).

Thank you guys! You're the bomb!

NEW INSPIRATION: GORILLAZ MONKEY
We'd love to see that type of monkey in the logo! All that we've seen has been a bit to cartoonish! Except for Dirty Lip and Fracco!! It has to look serious (almost angry) and a bit weird. Sorry if I'm not clear enough!

Thank you guys!! Update: We'd like the monkey to look like a tough-guy and not all that angry. We're learning from you guys, so please bare with us!!

Guys, we realize the one eye is a hard thing to do! If you feel it looks better without only one eye, let us see what you mean! Thanks again :)

Hey everyone! We would love to see some new ape-suggestions! We love the design formats you're sending in but we're unsure about the monkey! Could you see if you could do other monkeys than the ones you've already tried? We/I love all the great work you're doing!
