Been a while… busy… blah blah blah.
Instead of a long-winded “sorry I dropped off the face of the earth” post, I going to root through my hard drive and talk about something in my backup folder.
This is a logo for a band named Cycle. When I lived in Grand Rapids, Cycle was a rock band that had a modicum of notoriety, playing the standard GR haunts: The Intersection, The Radio Tavern (now destroyed), Ten Bells, etc as well as some opening shows for major-label bands (American Hi-Fi, Sponge, Bowling for Soup).
At my day job, I worked with one of the band members, drummer Jay Blakeslee. In my smokin’ days, Jay and I frequently ran into each other outdoors, catching a break.
The image above is the first logo I showed the guys for the band’s logo. There were some other ideas, now lost to backup discs gone missing, but this is the one they liked and went with. I have to say I liked this one most of the concepts I showed, and it had a lot of potential.
Unfortunately, the site became tough to keep up with after I moved to the East side and my relationship with the band drifted away. The URL is no more, but Cycle lives on through MySpace.
Check ’em out, ask for a CD.. they’re not bad.
