Branding

Joseph Veazie

Joseph Veazie is a local musician in Dallas, Texas. He decided to take on his own music career after working for a talent agency and leaving his band The Brofessionals.

In order to capitalize on his name alone, he contacted me wanting a new logo and identity. I made some sketches and put together a few examples of what we could go with. I wanted something that had a high personality, as well as being versatile in it’s style and form.

The Look & Feel

I experimented with different variations of his name and initials. Veazie has a very unique last name, in that it can be pronounced phonetically as a signature itself β€œVZ”, so it was interesting to play around with.

Once the initial concept was created, I moved onto the fun part: the digital work. Here are some examples of rejected logo designs that I created.

These logos were ultimately rejected because we were looking for something with more character to it, so I decided to move onto the signature style that it is now.

I combined over 20 different type styles and narrowed them down to my favorite 9 to present to Veazie. Of the typefaces presented, the one that was chosen was Mount Baker by Canadian designer Greg Nicholls.
