How Rdej47 started their logo design journey

Company name

Kid Shine

Overview

I'm a 21 year old bedroom DJ. I've been teaching myself for the past 2 years and have been doing one off gigs in the past year but i'm looking to make more of an impact in my community. I'm always looking to try new things and raise the bar. What's most important to me is that I leave an impact on people and can inspire others. I feel the name Kid Shine encompasses the way I feel when I'm DJing. I feel young, energetic, and light. Those same feelings I hope radiate out to my crowd when I'm DJing. Kid's don't care who's watching they just do what they love to do, and that's how I feel about DJing

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

The target audience is the 18 - 25yrs old market. I've DJ'd in lounges and house parties but i'm aiming to target club environments. My audience is very trendy and geared more towards mainstream music, but are beginning to lean towards more eclectic music (indie, electro, dubstep). My audience wants to have fun and party to the music I play.

Requirements

What i'm looking for is a logo that plays off of the dots on a turntable platter. I'm looking for it to be simple. Also i'd like it to be easy to put on a business card or have blown up big enough that it can be put on a t shirt. I was thinking that since my name is Kid Shine you could play off the image of a sun, without it looking tacky. The logo can go together with the name, but i'd love for it be recognizable enough without the name. I'd love to just have the logo on a shirt.

Another idea you can use is a record silhouette.

For colors, I love the CMYK colors, again keep it simple. This could be great for the turntable platter dots since there is a total of 4 rows each row could be a different color.

What I don't want is a typical DJ logo. So many DJ's in my town have a turntable or headphones put with a really cheesy font. They look very outdated and just are in bad taste. I don't want italic font and I like simple fonts.

I'm open to different fonts and new perspectives for the logo. Go crazy!

Images as listed:

1) A font someone did for me (just an example to help narrow font choices down)
2) The platter dots is the logo for Serato, I love the simplicity and would like something similar.
3) A controller I use for DJing, some ideas as to how I work
4) Typical DJ logo, not what i'm looking for.
5) My attempt at platter dots in Illustrator
