Kid Dreamer

A few months back I was contacted by a band out of California just getting their start, and naturally they wanted to get right on their logo design. They found me while google image searching and were stoked to stumble upon one of my other lettering projects that they thought complimented their style.  

I was more than happy to oblige and started by listening to some of the unpublished audio samples of the band's work.  Kid Dreamer has a really strong punk sound, so I knew it would have to be a logo that would be both rough and bold at the same time.  I also knew it would need to look spirited and spunky enough for it to stand out among other band logos that they might be placed with.  They liked my hand lettering style which is a little wobbly and intentionally rough, so I started by giving them a few pages of different logo arrangements using some script, some lowercase and some capital letter sketches.

After some back and forth with the sketches, I moved on to refining the design they liked best. I gave them 3 versions.  One solid black and two texture versions to be used depending on what the logo placement needed.  Of course, color treatments for the logo are a whole other can of worms but I'm pleased with how this project turned out!
