Very excited to work with all you amazing designers on this project! I'm an up and coming DJ and live performer and I need a cutting-edge logo to match the cutting-edge beats I'm playing. It'll be used on CD labels, my website, event promo material, Facebook, Myspace, business cards, e-mail signatures...you get the idea. The winner of the contest will definitely have opportunities for more work, as I need lots done. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Cheers!
This opportunity is to design a cutting-edge logo for an up and coming electronic musician. I promise it won't be boring!
To get a feel for me and what I do, definitely check out my site: http://www.vespers.ca
ADDED PRIZE: This is the cool thing about working with a musician...as an addition to the cash prize of $300, I can hook you up with beats! The winning designer will also receive copies of all my DJ mixes and original music. Guaranteed to make you shake your booty!
I DJ & perform live shows at nightclubs, underground parties, and music festivals, produce my own beats (primarily breakbeat / electronic dance music), and educate and mentor other DJs and musicians. I have some vids of my live performances up on my Youtube channel here: http://www.youtube.com/djvespers if you'd like to check them out. I also play alto sax and midi wind synths, so it's a rather unique kind of show.
I want to really step up my game with a professional marketing campaign to promo a series of new tracks I have coming out on iTunes and Beatport.com My site primarily uses blues and greys, with some gradients and chrome effects. Something that will integrate with this would be nice, although I'm not opposed to splashes of other colours that go with this scheme.
I've spent some time to find examples of other designs that fit with my style:

I’ve given some specifics for guidance, but I’m no graphic artist, so I’m totally open to all you amazing creative minds! Feel free to submit anything you feel would represent me well. Cheers!
- My artist stage alias is VESPERS (not DJ Vespers, just VESPERS) - so that's the text I'd like
- I'm looking for a logo with a text component AND an graphic component that can be used both together or independently depending on the context
- Designers that have the ability to do so, I’d also like to see the logo superimposed on a business card & CD label so I can visualize what it will look like in practice
- Definitely not required, but preference will be given to designers who can also submit a simple CD label & business card
- I really like 3D style effects like gradients, chrome/liquid/metallic effects, reflections and shadows which will enhance the logo for larger applications, and I would also like a version that will still look good scaled down (for use in e-mail/forum signatures, party fliers etc.)
- Vector format (photoshop or illustrator)
- Lots of submissions please! I love having lots of ideas to choose from :)
- Purely text, BORING logos
