Band logo design tips
Define your branding
Before people listen to your music, they’ll see your band’s logo. It’s key to choose a design that communicates what your band represents and the genre of music your group plays. For instance, a folk band might consider a design that contains elements from nature like wheat or stacks of hay. Do some research to see what other groups are doing as this will spark some inspiration—check out some of the best band logos to get started.
Choose the right font
Your logo’s font helps portray the feel of your band. The typography you choose should reflect the style of your music. The right font helps to communicate your band’s personality and appeal to the audience you want to attract. If you’re a rock band, go for a font that is loud and bold, or if jazz is your genre, pick something classic and tasteful.
Use color strategically
Like typography, colors also communicate the personality of your band. It’s a good idea to research logo psychology when choosing your logo colors. Colors play a major role in communicating the type of music your band plays. For example, if you're a folk band, you might want to pick earthy colors or if you’re a rock band, you could opt for black or red. Also, when choosing colors, keep in mind what will look good on your music website, merchandise, stage and in videos.
Make a graphic statement
Icons, illustrations and graphics can help you stand out from the crowd. You could use icons like a microphone or drum kit or find something different but still connected to your genre—like a skull or a lightning bolt for a heavy metal band.
