Hi guys. I figured since I saw all the threads floating around about band names that I would see what you guys think of the logo I was working on a little. I have no idea what I'm doing in photoshop (obviously) but anyway tell me what you think. Also, if I get a logo I like then I would like to paint it on my bass drum. Any tips on this? Ok well thanks in advance everyone.

photoshop gives u awesome effects. the problem is replicating them. id recommend getting a big custom sticker instead

To be horribly honest, I don't like either of them. Try to get a designed do it although you don't want it too complex, somethings that easy to read.

Yeah well I'm not much of an artist or a photoshopper for that manner but yeah I was just screwin around - that red logo I did off of a tutorial but it is really simple.

Dreamweaver is meant to be good for picture's although I reckon you have to pay for it.
Second logo beats the first.

Dreamweaver is used for coding websites, Photoshop is just about as good as you can get for images. As soon as I download Photoshop again, I'll post some logo's I've made.

How about my logo? (not meant to hijack...) My band name is Panacea. I drew the logo myself and scanned it and put it on photoshop...

Do it in coral Draw, if people send me thier ideas i can do some stuff, i need ideas for projects at school and these would work, just make a thread if you need my services, for free of course

man in all honesty i am not a great fan of bass drum logos it just reminds too much of hair metal bands and over the topness and also you get idiots (imo) like the drummer of HIM who got three bassdrums just to put each seperate letter on the drum head

TerranCmdr
10-22-2005, 06:51 PM
^lol yeah that is pretty stupid but i think that the first logo would look cool on a bass drum head - maybe even if it wasn't on the whole head. Like just up on the top a little bigger than a brand name would be.

nelldog
10-22-2005, 07:18 PM
but having said all that design wise thats a nice singletons head is that off a cd design or something??

I definitely like the look of a cursive typeface for the name "riley" on the cd cover comp.. but maybe that's because it's reminiscent of the band "rilo kiley" (coincidence?), who's singer jenny definitely has a bit of retro cursive feel to her (typographically, speaking). :)

I'd personally avoid any and all cheesy photoshop filters, and would recommend you create the logo in adobe illustrator, if at all possible. it won't be scalable in photoshop, and besides, photoshop's not really very good at rendering type and creating images/logos from scratch.

what kind of music do you guys do? that would help..

ammo
10-23-2005, 02:37 AM
Yeah if you tell me what your looking for ill mock you something up :)

TerranCmdr
10-23-2005, 03:46 AM
Yeah we were talking about how it sounded similar to rilo kiley but i think we're sticking with this name. I'm not really sure what we're looking for to be honest. The style of music we play is really unorthodox i guess you might say - kind of a mix of emo, punk rock, progressive and grunge. I just talked to my mate and he says he wants it to reflect the mix kinda - grungy, dirty and elegant at the same time... if that makes any sense :rolleyes:

heres my bands logo, it didnt take very long , i used paintshop pro.,...and its just a random star shaped thing i made up... if u look every letter of 'foreshadow' is in it somehow or another and i didnt realize that until after we decided to use it as our logo, so it turned out pretty cool

Crolfe1 your last design looks like a cheap rip off of Black Flags logo

10-23-2005, 05:22 PM
If you do get a logo. Do you end up getting a sticker on your basshead or just have on at a print shop...

I would say a print shop. I believe a sticker would affect the sound more than a printed on logo, yes?

Are there any other ways?

A friend of our band is doing our artwork, he's an amazing artist. It's going to be in the style of Blind Guardian/Rhapsody, fantasy type stuff. I'll get a bass drum head when he's done.
