Admiration’s, high fan base, recognition and trust are among the crucial elements that should be gained through the utilization of a band’s logo. Logo design is the band’s way towards commercial recognition and it is very important in establishing fans all over the world. Just like any product, a band should be marketable and appeal to the masses. Once again the shapes, fonts, colors and images should be well thought of and should match the image of the band. Band logos are often different and unique from those in the market.
The band’s type of music and genre as well as its collective image should be portrayed well in the logo design. New musicians and upcoming bands should pay utmost attention to their logo; it is their way of communicating and laying down their identity through the international market. Logo images, especially if uniquely executed will help a band to be remembered by music lovers, in creating a visual memory as they hear their music played on the radio.
Usage of bright colors such as red, orange in gradient form is the most common color scheme among the bands. However, bands with “dark” images use black, brown and other similar hues in gothic style. Teen bands often use a lively and vibrant color scheme that is adolescent in nature. These schemes attract a particular set of followers depending also on the band’s genre.
