Hey there, hello.

I need to create a logo/typetreatment that has a country flavor but more rock and roll, anyone have any suggestions. It is a memphis based record label. Thanks in advance for the help!

Letterrors Federal
has a country (or Wanted-poster) feel to it
+ it looks like something out of Rolling Stones magazine (for that rock'n roll feeling)

the inspiration? = US currency type

Brothers is definitly bluegrass-esque. Think ... O Brother Where Art Thou ...

Is the post, you're trying to find a type that works for a country/rock band? please clarify

Jimmy,

When I think country I think Clarendon slabs...

Try Font Bureau's fat Giza or Belizio:

For a quirky feel have a look at PsyOps' Oxtail
or Fountain's Barbera.

If you want to get old-school western funky with
shadowed wood type there are some great options...

Emigre's Brothers and Council (both designed by John
Downer) are oh, so nice.

But it all depends on what kind of 'country' you're talking
about. I could see this stuff working for old school, back
woods, folk stuff. But I couldn't see it working for the
likes of Garth, what's-his-name, Brooks.

(Confession: I'm not a country fan.)
