Logo for Babel Fish (music studio/band)
Check out johncarter's Logo design contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
A recording studio/project for songwriters and musicians. Kind of a band, but more of a project, with members who change as projects change.
Logo types to explore
The babel fish is from a comedy science fiction series called The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (very silly British humor - imagine Monty Python in space). The babel fish is the way all the different intergalactic species communicate. It’s a small, yellow fish that goes in one’s ear, and it’s both a transmitter and receiver of brain waves, so you can communicate with any other species. I can’t imagine a better metaphor for music – something that transcends language, even species – something we all understand innately. Once the name was chosen, I could imagine a cartoon yellow fish, wearing sunglasses and headphones and sitting at a recording console. But wow - that’s a lot of stuff to cram into a logo! So then I thought of something simpler - just a fish? In a fish bowl? No, that represents confinement. How about sitting on a rock, like the ones you see at a rocky beach? He’s next to freedom (water/ocean), and we have incorporated the unusual domain suffix (the website will be BabelFish.rocks instead of .com) into the image. This logo idea would help people remember the URL (www.BabelFish.rocks). But I'm not "married" to any of these ideas. I envision a yellow, cartoon fish wearing sunglasses and somehow tied to music, but I'm open to anything, even something abstract.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their logo design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
johncarter collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
