Music Logo Design Tips

1. Icons

Adding an icon to your logo can help express something about your personality as a musician or music business owner. Popular band and DJ logos tend to use icons that reflect something about their name, while others use abstract symbols to convey a feeling rather than an object. If you sell musical instruments or production equipment, you may want to go with a symbol of your highest-selling product.

The iconic music note (clef) is also a popular choice because the symbol is so recognizable. Going with such an obvious choice allows your audience to identify who you are and what you do instantly. 

But, you can achieve the same effect with other icons, which will help you create a unique logo. For example, a headphones icon combined with music notes, which you often see on sheet music, can also create the same effect, allowing your audience to recognize your music industry business. 

Or, you can use a microphone and a pair of lips to show someone singing. Because the music industry is so varied, you’re able to bring your creativity to your logo design to create something that represents you and your brand. 

2. Typography

Like with color palettes, your music logo’s typography gives you a lot of wiggle room to express your brand’s personality. For example, the philharmonic would do well with a classic, all-caps serif, to give of a timeless, respectable and sophisticated impression.

Big, spikey fonts are perfect for heavy-metal rockers who really want their logo to pack a punch: The bigger and more edgy the font, the better. 

If you want a more personal touch, handwritten fonts are an excellent way to convey your intimate brand while also allowing your creative side to shine through. 

When it comes to fonts and typography, there’s a near-endless selection you can use, from gritty punk-rock fonts to modern sans-serif fonts with clean lines and a relaxed aura. Your font will add to your logo’s personality, so don’t just choose the first one you see.  

Your font needs to complement your voice while still retaining easy readability across all the different marketing mediums available.

3. Color Palette

Because music is a creative industry, you have a lot of room to play with color combinations. As different color palettes have varying psychological effects on your audience, you’ll want to choose the colors that project the right vibe. A black and white palette is high-end and confident: orange is full of excitement. Make sure the colors you choose complement your logo’s typography and icon.

Bold colors, like reds, combined with blacks and silvers, work well for the heavy-metal genre as they’re sturdy and impactful. 

But above all, your colors need to reverberate well with your audience. Experiment with color combinations and choose one that they’ll respond well to, but also echoes your style of music and personal brand. 

If your goal is to entertain, choose blazing, lively primary colors—green, red, yellow, and blue. 

If you want your icon to have the loudest impact, then stick with a black and white color combo to allow your other elements to stand out. 

If you’re stuck for ideas, use a color wheel to explore combinations you’d never dream of, and you’ll have no problem fine-tuning your music logo.

4. Layout

The best layout for your logo will depend on where you want it to appear. Consider printed items like concert brochures and merchandise, while also taking digital media – like websites and social media pages – into account.

You’ll probably need a high-res logo file that can easily be resized and scales nicely.
