How Twoequalsone started their logo design journey

Company name

Calvin VanCleef

Overview

I'm a budding house music producer that needs a logo! I'm changing my DJ/artist name to Calvin VanCleef - It's just a cool sounding pirate-ish name that I like, and I need a logo to accompany it.

Examples of the music I've made can be heard here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfXDp6Slufo

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Half raver kid and half sophisticated audiophile, the logo needs to look professional but it mustn't look too corporate.

It can't look too cartoony or too childish either.

Requirements

As I see it, there are two main components to the logo: The first being the name itself, the second being a symbol.

The Name: Calvin VonCleef should look cool and a little grungy. I don't have a super specific idea in my head, so feel free to go nuts and try whatever you come up with. I've attached below an example of something I kinda like, but don't feel too confined by the example. As long as it looks rustic and grungy.

The Symbol: Next to the name, I want a little image or symbol. An example of what I'm talking about is attached below, or can be seen here: http://tinyurl.com/39sxvup

For the symbol, I like the idea of a pirate head (or a skull) wearing big headphones. I'm open to other ideas though, provided they fit the pirate/music motif. I like the idea of a silhouette, like the deadmau5 logo I've attached, but I'm open to something in color too.

I'm pretty open to various ideas, but the important bit is that it looks professional and badass. I don't want anything that looks too childish.

Please avoid stock images/clipart, I'd like something uniquely created for this. Also please save the file as a .PSD, with the font-face and the symbol on separate layers.

Looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with!
