Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

What is the exact name you would like in your logo?

Tasty Tones

What is your industry?

Publishing and Media

What are the top 3 things you would like to communicate through your logo?

1.) We're into hard rock and blues guitar - none of that top 40 music
2.) We are gigging musicians and know our gear
3.) We have a wild side and don't take our day jobs too seriously

What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)

Image + text. "Rock" and/or "grunge" styles can work such as use of splatters, or damaged text, but aren't a necessity. These are just ideas, not instructions. Please be creative. The logo will go on the header area of the web site so it should not be too tall, but should also look good on a t-shirt and/or hoodie.

Do you have any other info or links you want to share?

I want to briefly explain the company name. Guitarists are constantly seeking to shape their "Tone" through more and better electric guitars, amps, and effects pedals. The word "Tasty" obviously means something that is delicious or tastes very good. In this case, the "tone" is what we want to reflect is so good! Our site reviews the type of electric guitar gear that affects tone, and generally publish articles about great guitarists like Derek Trucks, Gary Clark Jr., Dan Auerbach, Robben Ford, Jimi Hendrix, SRV, BB King, Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, and so on. The logo should look "rock" somehow, something that would look good as a band logo or on a concert poster, and it should play on the word "Tasty" in almost a gimmicky way. For example, you might have a graphic with a bite taken out of it, or a tongue incorporated somehow (e.g., the Rolling Stones tongue logo). It should be fun and wild, not too corporate and clip art. Please be creative! I don't want to limit you, just give you some direction and ideas.

Brief updates

I'm seeing a couple of good entries already, but it's still up for grabs. If you want to see where the logo will go, it might help to see the site at The site is extremely "under construction," but might help to look at it.

Keep in mind I might be printing on T-shirts, so please keep screen printing in mind when choosing a color palette. For example, using ten colors all with gradients would be too expensive to print.

Another design direction to be explored is a design incorporating a guitar effect pedal as the graphic that goes with the text. I had a different contest and there were some pretty cool cartoon characters made out of pedals, some with a tongue hanging out to reflect "tasty." Think of Jack Black in the movie "School of Rock" for the right attitude. This is not a design requirement, just another idea that could work if that direction is more your thing. It's okay for the logo to be fun so please be creative and don't feel too limited in what you can do.

The directions in my original design brief still apply as well. Thanks for your work!
