ProjectVIBE Internet Radio
ProjectVIBE Internet Radio is dedicated to bringing you a unique mixture of continuous grooves tailored to the eclectic, adventurous tastes of music lovers everywhere. From one song to the next we keep the vibe funky, fresh, and (office)friendly, so you can enjoy the ultimate listening experience at work, home, or play.
Playing genres ranging from Jazz, Broken Beat, House, Old School Hip Hop, Funk, Jazz, R&B, Soul, Ambient, AfroBeat, even a little 80s soft rock...and then some. Although we've been called/categorized a "neo-soul" radio station in many circles, our playlist extends beyond any one genre. We primarily focus on exposing our listeners to music they like and would otherwise never have had the opportunity to experience while giving talented artists a springboard to let their music be heard.
We don't always play independent music... ratio-wise it's broken down as follows:
5% modern mainstream music
15% old classic hits: r&b, jazz (classical & contemporary), hip hop, funk, etc
40% independent (non-mainstream) artists based in the US
40% independent or popular artists outside the US
Our playlist isn't dictated by the corporate suits that control mainstream media. Instead it's run by music lovers for music lovers. In short, It's all about the music, and we love sharing it with the world!
We want to appeal to music lovers everywhere 24/7 but we find that most of our listeners and website visitors are cube dwellers (professionals who work in an office-type setting with broadband internet connectivity) ranging from 25-40. Listeners of various ethnicities from 85+ countries tune in every day... mostly African American but we get a lot of listeners from Europe as well. All of whom share the common love of music.
The logo must appeal to various nationalities/ethnicities and must be gender-less. The current logo we currently have almost achieves this but to many it looks like a silhouette of a black man.
People will see this logo on our website, printed materials, flyers, banners, bumper stickers, company vehicles, t-shirts
We need a logo update to represent our company ProjectVIBE. The concept behind the name Project: VIBE centers around a project, initiative, or mission to spread good vibes (euphoric feelings or memories associated with hearing good music) to music lovers everywhere.
I created several logos in the past (which are attached) to try to convey this but they fell a little short in effectively communicating the essence of what we are about.
We want the logo to illustrate music being heard but are open to other ideas.
+ a fresh look that conveys the idea of fresh music
+ a sophisticated sexy look
+ a logo that stands out but not too much
+ clear typeface and overall clean look
+ brown hues (might be open to other colors)
+ too many colors/special effects (gradients, drop shadows etc)
+ playful logo
+ flashy, busy logo
+ boring logo
+ stock images
I would suggest listening to our station at http://projectvibe.net (or http://projectvibe.net/home -- new site under development) to get a better feel for what we are about. It might serve as inspiration!
** Please make sure the logo looks good against lighter backgrounds. i.e. the site under development **
The logo must be consistent with our expected growth into other music related endeavors.
