2006 - 2006

Logo design


The band asked me to make them a logo proposal, because they felt they needed a change.

I came up with a few, but they didn't match with their idea, although they liked the concepts.

I decided to take some risks and make something really different from what they had before.

They ended up with a slight variation from the original, which is fine. I am really proud of my work and the risks I took, in order to make something really special.
