ToneCrusher the artist has just released Scenes From Saturn, an EP on Bandcamp:
This EP combines hiphop and jazz beats with synths and real instruments, including guitar solos and cello textures.
The target audience is mostly 12-25 year olds, frequent users of mobile phone media and those who actively search for alternative or unique ringtones. Logo should have an appeal to a primarily younger audience and should reflect a boutique brand (ain't your momma's ringtones...or, can't get this from AT&T) concept. The music ranges from electronic and abstract hip hop to acoustic guitars, synths and even experimental beats. A wide variety of styles but primarily would be described as electronic.
- original logo design, not a copy of some other concept
- all original files (.psd, .ai, images, etc.) delivered at the close of project to me, in Adobe CS4 compatible format
- one core, central logo concept, with a few variations for web vs. artist
- hi-res .jpg output for immediate use
I designed the logo in 2005 and as you can tell, it's not so great. I will be redesigning the site as well, but I want to get the logo right first. I would like to maintain the core colors I originally used, which are deep maroon red, grey, black and a darker blue. But, I am also open to different colors. I've included some samples from 2005.
The concept of the site is a boutique brand for original ringtones composed by an independent studio / artist. Emphasis on quality, uniqueness and small batch / one of a kind sounds. All music is 100% original, written, produced and recorded by me. Also, a sense of humor. Please look through the site at the ringtone names, descriptions and categories - that should give you a good idea of what I'm going for.
I'm not sure if 99designs has contact info, but you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any follow up questions.
