Dominic “Goldenchyld” Cueto is an accomplished DJ/Producer from San Jose, CA and has rocked countless audiences from around the world with his showmanship through the turntable arts. He has over 15 years of DJ and production experience and is a founding member of The Bangerz Crew. When he asked FlavorInnovator for assistance with a logo redesign the challenge was gladly accepted.
Problem: His previous logo mark was current and had a nice visual weight. However, it became illegible when scaled down. On top of that it felt a bit too structured. Needed to stand its own in a diverse music community.
Solution: Develop a brash, handwritten mark that is clear, and can adapt to a range of environments and screen sizes.
Initial sketches and type explorations.
Initial concepts fleshed out digitally. He chose A2 and A5 to explore further. A2 because of the readability and handwritten aspect. Graffiti but not really. A5 because of the classic element.
Revisions … plus a pass at a futuristic/electronic concept. At this point A12 was looking like the winner with the exception of a few changes.
Before and after. Did this improve on the old mark?
