Design brief

Organization name

Listen To Sisson

Description of business

Drummer/musician working to create Portland's Premier Portable Dance Party. Live drums. Lights. Lasers. I call the genre "Spacefunk meets Psychedelic Groove Pop."

Organization industry

Entertainment & The Arts


I need an image for tshirts and maybe other items that immediately shows what I do. The visual aspect is half of what i do, the lights are as important as the beats. My lasers are three colors: red, purple and magenta (pinkish) and I want to make those colors an overall part of my "brand", if you will. I think my drums should somehow be represented in an image, but not necessarily a perfect representation, maybe something that appear to be drums but they're more just abstract images, or circles. Check the image I added of a drumset silhouette. I still like that idea. I like logos and graphics to be clean, not too much detail, easy lines, like Apple branding. Must have Kent Sisson or Listen To Sisson somewhere, like a band name would be.

Further requirements

A video of my debut performance is currently featured on the Flaming Lips website!, scroll down about 5 videos. Imagine going out to a club or a live show and closing your eyes and for a brief moment you are lost in the ambient groove as the light swirl around you. Lights and fat grooves. That's what I do. You can hear a sample of my sound at or see an actual video at My target audience is probably 14-40ish. Jamband people, too. Soundtribe Sector 9, Lotus, The Disco Biscuits are all bands I could see opening for. My name is Kent Sisson but I also market with Listen To Sisson, so whatever you think looks better.
