Republik Records is slated to be the worlds first record label truly run by an online community of it's fans. Our members will select the music that we release through a unique blend of democracy and technology. All content will be user generated, and all releases will be community approved.
We are cutting edge, into min-century modern designs, and love music!
We have 2 motto's that we are currently using in our communications;
1)Of the People, By the People, and For the People.
2) Be Heard!
Our target audience will be the music lovers of the world. People that are extremely into Electronic music to start, but eventually moving on to other genre's as well.
Age wise we believe that most of our audience will be in the 16-25 range. So simple and sleek, but with the quality of instant recognition is what we're going for.
We are seeking a logo that gets the general idea of Music, Community, Technology, and Democracy across in a simple but effective design that is not dependent on color, or size to be recognized. It will go on the website, as well as promotional materials, posters, the inside labels of 12" vinyl records, business cards, and a million other uses.
Our color schemes will likely fall into the category of Mid-Century-Modern, but may change at any time as we begin to launch new sub-labels.
We are fans the now defunct Designers Republic when it comes to graphic design. For design in general, we are fans of minimalism, and mid-century modern.
Some of the imagery abstracts we were thinking about before launching this contest were: Flags, Coat of Arms, Democracy, Many People - One Voice, Music, Stars, The Bill of Rights, etc..etc...
1) NO "RR" designs unless it's completely unique and original. A forward "R" against a backwords "R" has been done over and over.
2)The design should be able to take on any color scheme without effecting it's overall impact.
Thats about it. We look forward to what you can do.
Attached files are a selection of logos that we have grown to love over the years, we think they fit the simple yet effective elements we are looking for.
