The uploaded word mark is what we have been using to date. We thought it might be helpful/good inspiration for the designers, but we definitely want to explore other designs like Pictorial, Abstract, & Web 2.0. We prefer Sans Serif fonts as opposed to Serif ones. We are seeking a clean & modern design that effectively communicates our fun/hip approach to event production. We don't have specific colors in mind, but we are certainly open to using color in the design.
I am including an image of me mixing on turntables that we use for all of our thumbnails & promo photos. I don't expect you to incorporate the photo into the logo, but it is an important part of what we do - more inspiration!
One of our favorite venues to perform at is Barr Mansion (http://www.barrmansion.com/), and I love everything about their website & their logo. They are the quintessential "Austin" venue, and we share a lot of the same values, vision, and clientele.
You probably want to take a look @ our current website too - http://www.nofurther.net. We are currently seeking to overhaul it in order to make it more SEO friendly & more functional with social media so we aren't married to the color scheme or the current design. However, it will definitely give you some insight into what we do & who we are.
Thanks in advance for any and all help making this vision into a reality for us!
By the way - You Look Great Today!
