Band Logo Making: Music for the Eyes
One of the greatest musicians of today’s generation, Adele, once said that she makes music for the ears and not for the eyes which is very true for we really do hear music and not see them. However, truth be told, people’s sight are the very first medium of attraction.
Let us take as an example, the great band Guns N’ Roses, could you just imagine if they didn’t chose to have a simple logo in spite of their very complex, rock music?
First impression last. If you are a fan and you saw a logo that simple (even though you are a believer of the phrase simplicity is beauty!) you will have the idea that the band’s music is dull and boring. This instance can lead into a grave mistake: a fan mistook your genre because of your label, let us say he was seeking for an acoustic band while you are actually a metal rock band, he will be really dismayed and will not go on judging your music itself. Or, the worst is, having seen your boring label alone, a fan may just walk pass your band without minding listening to you.
If you are to start up a new band, aside from your songs and lyrics, you might want to consider a band logo maker. Your logo will be imprinted on all of your albums (hopefully!), thus, it will pretty much carry your band’s name and reputation along your raw music. Bear in mind that as musicians, you are also considered an artist, so you ought to have a sense of creativity in your label. Some of the ideal factors you would want to consider in creating your band logo will be the following: your band’s desired identity; your target market; your music genre; and of course, the most inevitable of all, your budget.
But how would you compromise with these factors if in creating you band logo? You should not consider this as a problem, for there are lots of ways to get a great band logo all around the web as of now that may help you get through. You can consider hiring a professional band logo maker, or trying your luck by creating one of your own.
1. Gimp Or Photoshop
This would be perhaps the most basic option you might want to consider. The benefit of using photoshop creative suites is that your imagination will be your only limit. You can go on using monochromes (black and white) to different 3d special effects to use for your logo; it is really up to you. The band Panic at the Disco has really created an excellent logo for we can all agree that they have established another perspective to the Joker font. Isn’t it that when we see something in the Joker font, perhaps one of their most famous songs will be playing at the back of our mind, and you shall dream you will have that effect too? However, the downside of this will come if you are not that proficient in using photoshop or if… your artistic mind lacks the creativity you need. But then again, in the era of a self-taught generation, you may find different useful tutorials and resources that may help you through your problem.
There are two leading brand that should be used as a band logo maker. First, and probably the most famous of all, the Adobe Photoshop. Second and far less complicated (yet still as useful) will be GIMP or GNU Image Manipulation Program . Adobe is the one used by most professionals because of its multiple suites that may satisfy any of your needs. On the other hand, GIMP can make your work a lot simpler.

2. Stock Images
Unlike using photoshop, making use of stock images around the web will be much easier. Stock images are for sale, ready-to-use photos that you may use on your logo. They offer graphics, clip arts, photos and other images that can be altered so that it may suit your band’s identity. Once you have bought the image from their system, you will have the complete freedom in doing anything to it. One of the best examples would be www. istockphoto.com, where Twitter bought the bird logo we are all seeing today! And just for 6$! Boy, perhaps that is only 0.000001% of their total revenue! And didn’t they bring a whole new perspective to birds because of their company logo?
Stock images site, like iStockPhoto, provides their client a wide array of options that will fit their budget. In this case, if you are a rock band that can wait no longer in doing your band logo yet you still don’t have that much budget, using stock images could be the best option for you! While waiting for the perfect image for your logo, you can make use of your time in improving your music, so that’s pretty much like hiring a professional to do the job.
