billbengtson got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Rockstar Photographer Needs Logo
Check out billbengtson's Logo design contest…
I am in the process of creating a side photography business from my hobby, with the intention of creating a supplementary income & possibly a full-time business in the future. In need of logo that will be used on my website, social media, business cards, and potentially on stickers, clothing and YouTube. What I’m going for, is that I’m the “rock star”, that captures real rock stars performing on stage & other “rock star people” that want edgy portrait photography. Photography Business •Portraits o Fashion o High school seniors o Couples o Families •Live concert photography (rock/metal and country music) •Band group promo shots •… but NOT Weddings though
I want to take the persona of “Billy” • Most people call me Bill, but a couple close friends call me Billy, I want my photography persona to be “Billy” or “Billy Bengtson”. • The times that only one name is shown, I’d want to market “Billy” & not have the name “Bengtson” shown alone. • I don’t think that I want to have the word “Photography” in all of the branding, like it’s a photography studio in my town; I don’t have a studio. But instead, more-so just my name & my own persona…. but I’m known for my photography. Possibly an artistic clue or hint to photography in the logo though? • An example of this individual identity that I think of is Peter McKinnon (him, not his logo) https://www.youtube.com/user/petermckinnon24 • Peter McKinnon is fairly large on YouTube, he is known for Photography & Videos… but his identity is just his name & that’s what is identified in logo, it doesn’t say “photography”. Logo Can NOT be “BB” (2 b’s) • I do like the single letter “b” idea for my logo The overall vibe • Edgy, like a rock star or a musician that plays rock/metal music • But not so crazy edgy, that it scares away conservative “portrait” customers • I could like fun as well, but I don’t want it to look childish I see the logo as a recognizable shape/letter without a lot of text • Often times, I keep going back to a circle logo; whether it has a circle in the logo or would look cool on a round button worn on clothing or within a circle on a hat • POSSIBLY just a unique letter “b” with style to it. Part of me likes the idea of it being mostly just a recognizable letter “b” that is a bold & vivid • Undecided on if I would always want my name on it. Maybe the b shape can be used alone & other times used with my name? • POSSIBLY with a round camera lens being incorporated along with the unique letter/shape design • POSSIBLY playing up a big lens (large diameter around, not a long lens) that you can’t see the camera behind the lens • POSSIBLY with a person/character peaking from behind the lens o Or fingers/hands holding the camera that are visible on the edges of the lens • Up for other ideas then these, of course Website domain will be http://BillyBengtson.com Fonts • I don’t believe that I want serif fonts, typically not a fan of serif fonts Colors • I tend to like bold/vivid colors, (just a random example, like a Ferrari in red) • But also with Blacks & White balanced in there as well Looking for a Vector files for sure • Raster images are a bonus Pinterest Inspiration Board • Not the most amazing, plenty of options to do better than these • https://www.pinterest.com/billbengtson/99designs-contest-inspiration-examples/
