We worked with Stefan to design a logo for one division of our company through a contest and he was regularly in the top 3 designers. He then created a logo that just happened to be perfect for another company of ours so we choose two winners and came out of the contest very happy. Stefan was good to work with and the fact that we choose his art should say enough. Thanks Stefan

Making Killer Drums Since 1978
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We produce hand drums for drummers all over the world. Our main
instrument is the "cajon" or box drum. It is a wooden box that is
played by sitting on it and striking the front surface of the box
between your legs. Our competitors are Meinl, Pearl, and Schlagwerk
drums. Our audience is primarily male drummers who want to play hand
drums. They may have a rebellious streak. They want their drum to be
bigger, louder, and more powerful than the others.

stamped on the front playing surface of the box drum or "cajon" that
we make. Please look at the drum brands Schlagwerk or Meinl for an
example of this kind of design and how they place it on the front
playing surface of the drum box. Also look at the image used for the
Skullcandy logo- simple and direct, and fitting to spray paint on
We'd like Killer Bear to represent an underground movement of street
drumming, or "grafitti music" We love Banksy and the subversive nature
of his brand / logo. Among the images we uploaded, we like the bear
face mark inside the turquoise circle the best. Our drums are known
for having a big bass sound compared to competitors, so we want the
brand to feel strong, solid, massive, aggressive, with an element of
secrecy or sneakiness like a bear in the wild. We'd also be open to a
design that uses a bear paw or something similar. You strike the drum
like a bear would swipe with his paws, so that could be a fitting
