We are an intellectually creative group – so subtlety is important versus in your face. We like earthy subtle tones and images. Nothing bright and loud and NO CLIP ART. We need a simple, subtle design that intimates cool, straightforward, hip sounds, with a little retro throwback mixed in.
We all have hosts of influences from our past – growing up with 80s progressive alternative music – The Replacements, REM, The Church, etc. Our songs have messages and are influenced by friends (i.e – the name including Comrade), Life Lessons, love, heartache, and faith.
Our MODERN day influences (and what our friends and audience say we sound like) are crosses of Kings of Leon, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, Mumford & Sons – progressive, folksy, with the ability to rock.
So when it comes to logos - think 'modern day classic'. Something that's time-tested but stays current, progressive and crosses multiple generations. Chuck Taylors, Sweetwater Brewing Company, and the Mellow Mushroom pizza joints in Atlanta are things we all enjoy. Not so much their logos, but what they deliver. So basically we like to kick back in a pair of our favorite jeans and retro sneakers, drink some beer, eat some pizza, and play great music with all our friends.
