Band Logo Design Tips

1. Icons

Before you start designing, you need to choose which type of logo you’re going to use: Text-based, icon-based, or a combination mark. 

A text-based icon could include emphasizing a specific letter in your band name, using a monogram of your name’s initials, or just utilizing your entire band name as the basis of your logo.

Icon-based logos are ones centered around a specific icon, and combination marks–like the name suggests–are a combination of the 2.

There are a few different types of icons, including abstract, geometric, pictorial, crests and emblems, interactive, and custom. Each type has its own meaning and purpose.

An icon-based logo allows your band to be represented by a symbol that your fans can connect with. Rarely do bands use music-related images like instruments. Instead, they usually go with icons that are related to their music genre. So a metal band would choose a skull or a lightning bolt.

2. Typography

The font you use will convey a lot about your band’s personality, so you’ll want to pick one that expresses your overall identity. 

If you’re in a rock band, you’d want to use a font that’s bold and maybe include geometric shapes (think The Door’s logo). But if you’re an Indie singer, you might choose to go with a script font to add a bit of flair and personal touch. 

A rule of thumb: Don’t use fonts that are too similar to one another. Try contrasting a serif with a sans-serif, or use an all-caps typeface to grab attention. 

Remember that when you’re creating your logo, you can play around with the font in our logo editor until you’re positive that you’ve landed on the right one for your band. 

Regardless of what you choose, make sure that the typeface you go with is easily legible.

3. Color Palette

The colors you choose will communicate a specific set of emotions to your audience, and they’ll also help make your band logo memorable. You want your logo color scheme to stand out from the others and make a statement. 

Make sure that your logo colors emphasize specific traits and characteristics that you want your fans to associate with your band. After all, a heavy metal band probably wouldn’t go with a bubblegum pink color palette, amirite?

 

This is one of the few times that using several colors, as opposed to just one or 2, can actually work in your logo’s favor. However, if your logo personality is rooted in outlandish typography, then using one or 2 colors is the way to go. 

4. Layout

You want your logo to look amazing no matter where it’s being showcased, right? Whether it’s on your band’s merchandise, posters, or streaming platforms, consider how your logo will look displayed across different mediums. 

As many of your fans will find your music on Spotify and YouTube, aim for a layout that can also support a thumbnail-size version of your logo without cutting off the edges.
