I was recently asked by a good friend to help design a new logo for Broad Street Records, which is located in Hamilton, New York. They promote music and culture at Colgate University, and in the surrounding area by hosting concerts, radio shows, and much more. The initial brief was "modern vintage". After a day or so of brainstorming and doodling everywhere, i had a bunch of ideas, of only which 2 made it to the final round. Eventually the top design was picked. The one below, which really fun to illustrate doesn't get the job done.
