LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Hi! The Parish is one of the best live music venues in the USA for it's size. We are only 450 capacity, but have had some amazing artists play at our club, including: My Morning Jacket, Yo La Tango, Spoon, Band of Horses, Neko Case, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Ra Ra Riot, The Nightwatchmen, Ingrid Michaelson, Jenny Lewis, Gomez, Grupo Fantasma, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Jens Lekman, Jamie Lidell, Paleo, Gavin DeGraw, Bat For Lashes, Grizzly Bear, etc.
Our club is located on 6th St in Austin, TX. We are in a historical district, and have the second floor of a building that was once a Blacksmith Shop in the 1800s. We have the original wood floors and brick walls, which make for great acoustics and give the room a warm feeling. We have a "family" type of feel and book genres of music reaching form Indie Rock, to world music, to DJs/Dance Music, Singer/Songwriters, R&B/ Hip-Hop, Country, Soul, sometimes Blues, etc. We are a quality, professional, classy venue and are friendly, welcoming people who put on great shows.
Our current website is: http://theparishroom.com
We are under new ownership and getting a re-model done of the club, and are headed toward a brighter future and now have more resources. We're adding a lighting rig, remodeling green rooms, bathrooms, getting new web site and sign, etc. We're excited!
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
-A logo! This will be used as the main part of our new website, on T-shirts, letterhead, on our social networking sites, etc.
-Can include black & white, but we'd like to have at least a little bit of color in the logo. Our current logo has purple in it, which we like, but we are open to integrating another color or colors.
-Must include text with "The Parish" .... font must be unique. we'd also like to have some type of logo/image attached to the text... like a bird or some kind of image related to music (that isn't overstated). we are wide open to ideas.
-Must be clean / easy to read, and POP out at people. People think our current logo (attached below) looks like it says "Phish". not good!
-We are a very special / unique place and have a laidback, good people vibe.
-Logo should be edgy, but appeal to people of all music genres.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
it varies. we do mostly rock-oriented genres, but we have anyone from college students - 55 year olds. the majority of our demographic is people between the ages of 25-45, male and female.
Austin is a very liberal city, and we are a small, privately owned business. we are open to people from all walks of life.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
we're open. has to be quality.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
-nothing too "churchy" .... the club was named after the Parishes (counties) in New Orleans... not a church. but it can have a churchy undertone... must not be obnoxious or obvious. no crosses or halos.
-must be unique/special/CREATIVE!!!!
-font must be original or a variation of a unique style font that isn't easy for the general public to find.
-can't be boring! we are all about having fun.
-we need a "rock n' roll" vibe/feel that is NOT CHEESY!
