i am a working dj. i play house, electro, indie rock, drum n bass, hip
hop, funk etc.. i play at clubs, house parties, bars, weddings,
corporate events etc. so, i need something that is simple and effective that can be used for all types of gigs in professional and trendy settings. the name "brut" is usually attached to older mans cologne, or a style of champagne. so, no visual refererence is needed, but those existing references can be resources. and also, i prefer that the word "dj" be very subtle or just not used at all. also, my personal branding will be very simple streamline and simple. think classic high end designer clothing. classic and subtle but still chic and hip.
brut or dj brut
this will be used for my myspace, business cards, flyers, etc.
i need a logo which is very classic and simple. i will be branding myself with a similar style. think high end designer clothing, or luxury cars. very streamline, but still very cutting edge and stylish. i will be wearing leather jackets with skinny ties, tight jeans with boots. and i want the logo to resemble that style.
i was thinking of having something that would look well placed on a BRUT champagne bottle. something that would embody the style that most winemakers already utilize.
i thought of something like the cadillac logo, or fred perry. but maybe more 3d and modern. leaves and wreath bordering could work. with "brut" in the middle or somewhere fitting.
i need to use this for all types of gigs. if i can't give to a underground party promoter in the same night that i give it to a mother for her daughters wedding, then i can't use it. so, please make it versatile.
fairly open about any must haves. maybe a silver and black or black white with silver scheme. something that could fit on a luxury car or champagne bottle.
again, the word "dj" should be very subtle or not used at all.
something like the cadillac or fred perry logo, maybe with a banner. but still very legible.
if this type of image is used, then i want for it look like 3d chrome. like the logo is a hood ornament on a luxury car.
i want to go with the fred perry style logo. the leaves/wreath in a circular shape. with "brut" underneath. looking like chrome.
THIS MUST LOOK LIKE IT COULD BELONG ON A CHAMPAGNE BOTTLE OR LUXURY CAR!!!!!
also. i really like the cadillac logo . perhaps even a shield in the middle. i don't mind a blatant rip off of the cadillac style.
- no headphones, needles, turntables. or any usual dj visual refernce. if anything, an audio waveform is the most i can handle looking at.
- please do not confuse the above with hollywood glam. no ed hardy style anything. please.
- not tagging or graffiti style.
- nothing that resembles anything on a skate clothing label.
