Music logo best practices

Colorful Windows with Trees Indoors

Color

You’re an artistic person—your brand colors should reflect that. Look for logo colors that will resonate with your fanbase, while also reflecting your sound. If you choose a bold color scheme, you’ll need to keep the rest of your logo’s design subdued. Many music logos opt for a black and white color scheme, which allows their other design elements to stand out.

Phone Layout with Logo on Screen

Layout

To ensure your logo looks just as good on concert merch as it does on a ticketing website, it’s best to go with a minimalist layout. A simple logo layout will give you the most flexibility with where and how you use your logo. If you need a more complex layout to communicate your band’s brand, you can create a couple logo variations for different applications.

Large Letter A on Rusted Background

Typography

When it comes to typography, music logos are all over the map. From the gritty fonts of punk rock to the script fonts favored by classical groups, there are as many font options as there are music genres. Many artists choose custom fonts, to add personality and set themselves apart from other acts. Look for a font that complements your voice, while remaining readable across mediums and sizes.

Elaborate Ampersand Symbol on Crowded Desk

Symbol

While the musical note is an obvious symbol choice, it’s far from the only one. Rather than limiting yourself to literal symbols, look for ones that reflect your sound and resonate with your audience. Whatever symbol you choose, make sure it works with your other logo design elements to create a cohesive brand.
