I've recently designed a logo for a band called 'Pink on Black'. they are a four piece band with 2 females and 2 males. Their brief was to design a logo that was dark and slightly gothic with a femine touch.
The logo I've come up with has a clean typeface with the serifs adding a slightly gothic 'dark' feel without going over the top.
The format of it has 'pink' on top of the word 'black' to reinforce 'Pink ON black' (obvious).
I've slanted the 'A' in 'black' to create a negative space within the 'N', the 'L' and 'A' which creates a triangular shape that resembles the play button of a CD player. When turned at 90 degrees this shape also represents the female form (according to the Da vinci code!). This rotated shape is repeated underneath the type to confirm the idea and add another element of interest.
Overall, it is meant to have a simple, classic and timeless look that shouldn't date as the band grow and develop.
As usual all constructive comments welcomed.
