It’s got to be Modern Funky and Fun said Three Mile Brass
Being a designer is fun, it’s great to be around images all day and get a good look at eye candy as part of your daily job. It often coincides with my other passion music. Being known within the group, Three Mile Brass that I am a designer (Matt Chapman is a great friend and Pete is my husband) I was asked to put together a logo.
As we nutted out the details for the group we discussed the look and feel and how we wanted to be perceived. We went for an edgy eroded font encased in a yellow box – reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails – the band. Our group needs to appeal to both young and old. Black will be the base colour for everything with yellow being a highlight colour against black, white and grey.
Away I went to the trusty office iMac and produced this logo. The band were thrilled with it and it is now the basis of some t-shirts and a Facebook page.
