The logo reflects what he likes to do with his music: emotional chords, catchy melodies, hard drops and a story.

The logo was inspired by the psychedelic revolution of the 60s and the gig posters of the time.

This job was very satisfying to me due to all the research involved and the process discussed with the client.
