Bagpipe band in need of a fresh logo
Check out Minnear's Logo design contest…
Games & Recreational
We are a competition bagpipe band based in Atlanta GA. As a traditional Scottish musical group (comprised of bagpipes and drums) we attend highland games around the East Coast. The Phoenix has been used as part of previous band logos and is a symbol of Atlanta. Updated statement by the band: The general consensus seems to be a desire for a modern logo with regards to color palette, typography, and general design but with a subtle nod to the traditions of our passion and the 43 year history of our band and the City of Atlanta. We're not entirely sure what that means specifically which is why we need the touch of a designer, but we can point to things that we find inspiration in: the logos of Inveraray & District, Simon Fraser University, and Field Marshal Montgomery pipe bands; the 'Atlanta form the Ashes' statute downtown Atlanta; and our tartan. We're looking to avoid cliche Celtic symbology, and silhouettes of pipes and drums in a logo.One idea we'd like to explore is a phoenix based variant of the "Izzet Guild" dragon, but with the phoenix. Flames are welcome, and would be curious to see in the offset the letter 'A' could be incorporated. The band is commonly referred to as "APB". Lastly, we need a logo that is versatile. It will be used in many places ranging from social media, to our website, to a prominent place on our bass drum.
Logo types to explore
The logo would be used on the band's bass drum, where a logo and the band name would likely appear. Certainly looking for something with a Celtic influence, but not Irish. A sample band that has a nice logo are: http://www.idpb.co.uk/
