Logo for a friend of mine who does pro sound for metal bands, currently Stryper. I’ve included his original just for contrast.
He needed something very iconic and striking in silhouette which would look good stenciled onto racks and equipment cases.
I was trying for something very stark, monochromic and clean.
He chose the design at the top, which I think is very strong in that it suggests an inverted triangle or a shield or coat of arms.
