As discussed in a previous post, part of creating your DJ brand involves creating your logo.

An important part of any business, your logo design is especially important as a DJ – why? A logo can convey alot as a DJ and it will represent your persona on any flyers, websites, and marketing material.

It identifies you, your company, and your reputation as a DJ. 

If you’re just starting, it’s understandable that you still don’t have a logo. However, it is ideal to have one immediately to help you get recognized whenever you get hired as a DJ. To help you come up with your logo, here are some useful tips that you should keep in mind. 

It’s Okay To Outsource Your Logo Design

Your logo does represent yourself and your business but that doesn’t mean that you should be the only one to design or create it. It is a good idea to hire a professional designer to create your logo to make sure that it’s done right. 

Hiring a professional doesn’t mean leaving everything in their hands. You still get the last words on how your logo is supposed to look. The professional designer will gladly hear out your ideas so they can create a design that you would love. You can work out the things you like and don’t like about the design until you end up with the logo you’re happy with. 

Keep It Simple

A simple design is easy to recognize and describe. That makes it easy for people to identify at first glance. Even without color, a simple design can be easily recognizable. Make sure that your logo is still identifiable even when seen at a distance.

Also, it is best if your logo represents what you do or is in the shape of objects that you use for the service you provide. Although not all DJs have logos relating to music, having it will help other people, who don’t know you or what you offer, to have an idea of what your services are.

Don’t Focus On Colors

Colors are great and can grab attention but you should leave that to the last minute when you’re already happy with the logo design. The design, shapes, or image used on the logo is more important than color. Look at your logo and see if it is still identifiable in monochrome.

When you’re happy with the logo, that’s the time you can add some color to it. Just make sure that you don’t go over the top with color. 

Take Inspiration From Others

If you don’t have any idea of what logo to create for yourself, you can take a look at the logos of known DJs. However, don’t copy them or tweak them a bit to fit yours. The resemblance will be obvious especially to those who are into the industry. What you should do is to identify why their logos work for them. Look at the logo and you will also see what the DJ has to offer.

Don’t Take Text Fonts For Granted

The font you use for your DJ logo is also important. It is best to use one to two fonts for the text included in your logo. Anything more is unnecessary. Remember to keep things simple and that also means limiting the number of fonts you use. Similarly, the size of the text should also be well thought of. Make sure that even if your logo is only a thumbnail in size, the text would still be readable or at least identifiable.
