The recent interview with Frank Chimero on The Great Discontent is an excellent read.

“If you’re looking for contentedness, I’d say stop worrying about your portfolio. Portfolios are super important in explaining yourself to other people and getting new work, but my body of work doesn’t really fill that role of fulfillment. If you expect to find contentedness there, you’re facing in the wrong direction. That’s about the past. You need to face forward. Personal satisfaction comes from putting yourself in a place where you can multiply the opportunities you have and make yourself available to whatever comes up.”

Turn It Up: Musically Inspired Logo Design


  

Many artists, whether digital or traditional find much inspiration in music. It often serves as a great mind opener for large amounts of creativity and style to be ushered in. Some artists believe music helps them to see shapes and colors, and often offers up feelings and emotions to help them execute their work more proficiently. Which is why it’s best to try to listen to music that you know will get your mind going.

Sometimes this inspiration becomes the work. Music based design projects can be extremely fun and creative projects. Whether you are dealing with a musical artist or a music studio, the possibilities can really be endless. Music is such a big, ever-evolving entity that sometimes it requires that extra bit of design work to take it to the next level.

Today, we are sharing some of the best, creative and wonderfully designed logos that are musically inspired. We hope the next time you are on a music based design project, these logos help to inspire you to create something great. If not, turn on some even greater music!

Music Inspired Logos

Go Music
It’s easy to want to refer to ‘stop’ and ‘go’ when you have a company named ‘Go Music’, but what the designer did here was extremely clever and well executed.

MyDJSpace
Simplicity is often key when designing a really good and strong logo–sometimes keeping your logo close to home really makes sense. Here, we have two iconic things associated with DJ’s, the vinyl record and headphones.

Zuim
This logo was created for a podcast that dove heavily into music by offerring critiques and holding open discussions with their audience. The emphasis here was obviously on the music, as the staff and notes are extremely important here.

Radio
Another simple, ‘makes sense’ logo concept that really meshes two things you really think about (or see) when you think of radios. This is a very strong, easy to get logo.

Rockit NightClub
The great thing about this logo is it took two completely different topics (rock music and rockets) and seamlessly put them together. At first glance you see an overly decorated guitar, then you see a rocket launch, leaving lots of smoke behind. Very brilliant.

Jazzcuzzi
The reason this logo is so great is because it really captures the essence of what people believe jazz is; calm, smooth and relaxed. The designer chose to represent this by referencing some sort of beautiful horn.

Cafe Melody
Another extremely clever logo design where the designer meshes two different concepts. The idea of the cafe with a coffee and plate is quickly noticed. However, the designer also see’s a volume knob, used to control the melody. One can also see a person with headphones on.

Installer
Though a strong typographic logo, the designer squeezed in a note of musicality. Why not, when the guitar is one of the key things people associate with rock and roll music.

SwanSongs
This is an extremely beautiful logo that uses a treble clef to serve as the beginnings of a swan. With this logo, many would assume the music or services offered here are extremely beautiful, elegant and tender.

Mind Dead
Again, while this logo is typographically strong, the musical reference cannot be missed. The headphones plugged into the word is a really simple yet effective way of saying this group is worth listening to.

Minerva Music Machine
Much like the previous logo design that referenced piano keys, this designer realized the comparison between the ‘m’ and the piano keys. What stands out is how the longer white keys kind of adds that ‘machine’ like repetition to the logo.

Corpse Music
This is another extremely clever logo. The great thing is that the designer recognized the coffin shape looks a lot like the head of a guitar, and used that to great effect.

Crescendo Music Entertainment
The designer here gets props for skillfully turning the company’s initials into a simplified guitar. Nice imaginative flair at play.

Music Delicacy
At first glance you may see a pot with a big spoon in it, but if you happen to look closer, the concoction in the pot is really in the shape of the vinyl record. It really makes you believe you may have a chance to taste the music.

Music Poet
This is a creatively fashioned logo design. The music note serves as the fountain for the pen, properly and easily creating a relationship between ‘music’ and ‘poet.’

Homegrown Music
This logo makes perfect sense, and will be easy to recognize. No need in fancying up a concept that doesn’t need it.

Sun Music
This logo is absolutely beautiful. While it references the shape of a note, it creates this beautiful movement along the stem while the circle seems to represent the ‘sun.’ Really well executed work here.

Sound Bite
A part of making a great logo is knowing whether to focus on a piece of the concept or the whole concept. The designer here chose to focus on the ‘d’ and ‘b’ in this logo, transforming them into a pair of headphones.

Daily Jazz
Not only do you think of smooth sophistication when you think of ‘jazz’ but you almost always think of saxophones. This designer found a way to marry the idea of jazz and paper (writing) to create this logo.

Vinopiano
This is one of those logos where you may see one thing, such as three wine glasses, or you may see another thing, the black and white keys on the piano. This is another clever, simple and well executed design.

Rhythm Magical
Though not exclusively about music, the designer snuck a bit of it in this logo design. Yes, magic and rabbits in hats go hand in hand, but the designer threw in a music note that is concealed as the inside of the rabbits ear. It also could look a bit like the rabbit has on headphones; either way it’s a nice subtle addition.

Campusounds
This logo, again, very simply refers to the music behind this company’s purpose. Campusounds is about hearing the music around different campuses, which is evident by the border which creates a bit of a ’round and round’ movement.

Music Fashion
While the focus on the logo again is typographic, it is overall greatly executed. The typeface used does remind you a bit of ‘fashion’ and the way everything is styled it actually makes you believe in the idea that one can fashion the sound of music.

Rock Stock Festival
When you think of rock and roll, you think of this little ‘devil horn’ sign folks throw up at the concerts. The great thing about this logo is that the fingers seem to double as rock.

Music Books
Here, we have a logo that, again, plays with the piano keys, but this time makes a great comparison between the keys and books on a shelf.

Sounderated
This logo is a bit of a play on words where you can see it saying ‘so underrated’. The logo captures that perfectly by having upside down sound waves.

Plug & Play
More typography play here and just a wonderful idea that makes sense. Everything is connected in some way much like the cords musicians use to plug in and play.

Finishline Studio
This designer chose to play off notes, which is an easy task, but here they completed the look and purpose by making the bar look like that of a finishline.

40
This designer should be commended on their eye, as they created the ’40′ out of shadows, but also completed this look by adding eighth notes to the shadows in places that really make it pop.

Music to My Eyes
This one make take a while to see but the piano keys actually make the longer part of a pencil (thus the triangle at the bottom). It makes sense with regards to writing music.

Mixtape Attack
A mixtape, often associated in previous years with cassette tapes, would be an obvious choice for this logo. However, the designer went a step further by creating a little ‘monster’ out of the cassette tape, adding in the idea of ‘attack.’

Passionato
Another rendition of a note, but the movement and elegance in this execution is extremely…passionate. Really beautiful logo.

Devil’s Music
If there was no name on this logo, we’d all pretty much be able to figure out what it was called ‘Devil’s Music.’ Excellent finished product.

Music Snail
This designer used a treble clef and a double eighth note to help create the look of a snail. This simple yet clever execution is genius and extremely inspiring.

Walking Alone
This simple logo takes the idea of walking on a sidewalk and creates a saxophone out of it. Again, this designers eye should definitely be commended.

Music Gym
Simplicity is really key when you are doing logo design and this is one of the logos that just gets that and still makes perfect sense. The connection is clear, the message is clear and the finished product is excellent.

Shanghai Voices
It’s almost second nature to hear that a musical group wants a logo and to immediately want to fire up something that has musical notes or a treble clef in it. The best way to counter that is to revision it, and that’s exactly what this designer did by adding a silhouette of a famous building in Shanghai. The movement is great here, as well.

Duncan & Noel Acoustic Duet
This logo is a bit more like a graphic, but the execution is pretty awesome. It gives the sense that this duet, would have a nice acoustic guitar and a really folky or down to earth sound, judging by the design.

Music video for the deaf blind

Here’s a kind of science experiment that had me thinking.

“This video is made to be connected to a metal pad that a low-strength electrical current runs through. The current’s strength modulates in conjunction with the frequency of the wave of the color depicted on screen. Low frequency colors (red/orange) emit a lower level of current than higher frequency colors (blue/green).”

By Evan Drolet Cook who lives and works in Los Angeles.

But it’s not the actual video I was contemplating. It was our eyesight and hearing.

Just as we do our health, it’s incredibly easy to take them for granted.

Sights, sounds — appreciate them. Senses fade.

Sampled Environments for Inspiration and Kickass Creation

We’ve all seen the sampled tracks where someone painstakingly takes an object, records 60 sounds with it and edits it back together. Coming from a drumming background, this fascinates me as I make a beat on any object I encounter purely out of habit. There’s been a recent “revival” of these sampled environments due to technology, bordem and shear creativity. Here are a few kickass beats from objects that are sure to inspire you but at the very least, give you a soundtrack for a few minutes of your day.

Science Of Writing Process: Getting Ready, Set Up Mood & Avoid Distractions

You’ve probably already read the introduction already, but here we go again. Today we’ll talk about how to get ready to work. Actually it doesn’t matter if it’s about blogging, coding, designing, because in most cases we need to work alone and we want to be focused to do our job really well. Though this article has tips that almost anyone can use, freelancers may find it particularly valuable, because they don’t have to go to work from 9-5 each day.

Being able to pick and choose when you work and when you don’t is such a pleasure , but it also comes with a lot of time management issues, people get distracted and end up sitting at their computer all day but not actually doing anything. Why is that?

Well, there are too many things we could be doing instead! We can check our Facebook status, read what our friends are doing on Twitter, talk on Skype, browse through email and newsletters, read technology news – you name it! There are so many distractions, I didn’t even mention mobile phone, TV, newspapers, radio. If we want to work effectively we need to be focused and that’s what this article will be about.

At first you need to decide where you will work.

Work Environment

Pick an inspiring place to write. A place with good lighting or an outdoor cafe for example. An internet connection can be both helpful, however if you can get all the information you need beforehand and then just go somewhere without an internet connection it’s even better, no distractions at all. Full control of environment – beautiful.

Coffee Shop
This is more important then you can imagine – for a long time I was working in my bedroom. It’s not the most effective approach, just by looking at the bed thoughts about sleeping will be planted in your mind. Why this works? – well the same way as if somebody yawns, you’ll most likely yawn yourself. Even when you read word “yawning” – you may yawn or think about sleeping.

Work environment is important – if you’re an artist, it’s even better if your work room is clean and filled with paintings or artistic objects which may inspire you.

Put Yourself on a Diet

A low information diet that is. Radio, TV or breaking news will just distract you, not help you to stay focused. That’s the reason why I don’t even have a TV at my home, I rarely listen to the radio (whenever I hear an advertisement – I switch it off) and I don’t read local or global news. I keep myself on a low information diet. I just spend 30-60 min daily reading technology news, something that’s really important for my business. And the interesting part here is, I know about all the biggest events anyway, people I communicate or work with will occasionally tell me about any major news naturally. Great-I save time by not searching for major news, and still know about all the major events.
Enjoy your diet

This topic may seem out of the context, but the same applies to work – when you’re doing something, working on a problem – stay focused. If you’re searching for something on the internet just research your topic and don’t let yourself do anything else.  I’ve been there so many times – I start to research an article idea, but then I find cool unrelated website and start reading about it. After some time I remember I need to check an email, because well – this thought comes naturally in mind..and you got it – you are distracted and some time is wasted. Don’t let that happen to you. Too often.

Do Not Disturb: I am working

Make sure nobody can distract you. Switch off any messengers like Gtalk, Skype. Log off any social networks – Facebook, Twitter and most importantly don’t check email, these all are big distractions. You need to spend quality time on work. If you are very focused on your work, you’re likely to finish it earlier and now you can enjoy your well earned free time!

Many freelancers like to wake up very early or work late at night because then everybody else is silent and nothing else is really happening. Have you ever thought about why we have difficulty being productive during the rest of the day?

I’ve tried both ways – staying up late at night works very well but in the long term it messes up your health. If you can do it, a much better solution would be to wake up at dawn when everybody is still sleeping – who said it will be easy? As for me, I usually cannot wake up too early, that’s why I am trying out the low information diet and low communication diet. It works for me because I live alone, if you have family or children, then your only answer to be able to  focus on work would probably be an office or coffee shop.

Background Noise: choose what works for you

There are two choices – background noise or silence. There is no exact formula, but why do so many people prefer to have background noise like music or the TV? Well, it’s a lonely journey as a freelancer and we are used to living in a world where something is always happening. Humans are social beings and they usually need other people, we aren’t loners.

I was trying to understand for a long time, why in my first years of blogging, the best writing zone for me was when I worked on my laptop and had another computer were I put on a movie or TV show.  This combination was my most productive and yet I was sitting at home all the time.

But music, TV, movies, even being in coffee shop makes you feel like you’re not alone. You have background noise which helps because it doesn’t affect you. I mean if you work at home there’s always a chance somebody will call, talk to you or need you to do something. Music provides noise but doesn’t ask for anything back in return.

the audio technica pro700 sv dj monitor headphones

In a coffee shop – you’re in public, but everybody is busy with their own life, it’s an interesting way to enjoy society and get a lot of work done.

Quick Tip: Wherever you listen to music, just make sure it doesn’t require ongoing attention. Avoid YouTube, because once the song ends, you need to go back and search for a new song. So distracting.

I consider having background noise or seeking silence a ritual. Rituals can help you to get into your work zone, when nothing else matters.

Related note:If you’ve seen “The Social Network” the term “he’s wired” was used when talking about programmers who were working in a crowded space where everybody was drinking, but still seemingly isolated. That’s the power of being in a writing/coding/designing zone ( I am pretty sure this applies to any profession in some kind of way).

Setting the mood by reading about your topic

Whenever I feel discouraged or feel like I have writers block, I just start my work by doing a simple Google search on a particular topic. What that does is, it makes you think about what you read, look at different opinions and ways others express themselves. However I won’t suggest to overdo that, once your brain is working and your imagination and thoughts are starting to flow – just put them on paper (ah..just an expression)!

Actually I apply the same principle to daily life. When I wake up I workout, shower and then while eating my breakfast I read technology news, other design blogs to help me start thinking about work and about what I should do today and if there is a better way to do a particular job.

Conclusion

Work mode environment, circa 10.01.2010

I wished to write just about the writing/blogging process, but I realized the same principles apply in life and all other freelance workflow. There is no exact formula when the work is the most productive, which is better music or silence, and where you should work. In this article I wanted to help you start thinking about how you make things work and maybe how you can improve your workflow. Every one of us has our own ritual, stick to it if it’s working, change when needed, that’s my only suggestion in the end.

Note though, whenever you want to get work done you need to avoid distractions and be focused! No matter what you do, always try to stick to the plan, make corrections if needed, but don’t try to do everything at the same time. Unless you’re Superman you’re more than likely not going to succeed, there is no way around it.

Plan, do, review and improve.

Our Readers Feedback: How Do You Work?

Work Environment

I also asked to 1stwebdesigner readers on Twitter how they set up their mood and workflow, what works for them? I received a lot of responses and I am very grateful for them, thank you everybody!

So the question I asked was: “When is the most productive time for you to get work done? How do you set up your mood? Music, silence, TV – do you need any background noise to work?”

Here are the responses I received:

@davidwsshaw: “midday to night is most productive time. Always with music on, usually ambient/electro or alt/indie stuff. Aphex Twin, REM.”

@OhNenaPerez: “at night and with good music on, but not too loud :)”

@Tommy__Zoom: “Sometimes working amongst other people or borrowing desk space gets me in the working mood. Headphones in, notepad out.”

@smiggy: “I work best at night til the wee hours of the morning. With music on and a DVD playing :)”

@skyfenix: “I work better, faster and more creative at night. With TV noise as background even better.”

@HDEE804: “I think its the time of the night…when everyone’s sleeping, with earphones on…playing rock, & no 1 to disturb u.”

@HenerzDesigns: “Has to be with some music.. no question, although if I need to concentrate to fix an issue, I usually use silence to help.”

@leoraw: “8 am (after kids leave for school) + silence”

@kurtmx: “Nighttime is more productive for me, less distractions from the outside world. Some electro-jazz and lots of coffee!”

@davidwsshaw: “midday to night is most productive time. Always with music on, usually ambient/electro or alt/indie stuff. Aphex Twin, REM.”

@RobertiRivas: “4 me the most productive time is in the mornings,i listen music when the work’s easy but when i need 2 be focused i avoid it”

@pippinspages: “late at night and early in the morning. I have music playing 98% of the time”

@brimmingwith: “i.e. coffee shop = ok, office or home is not.”

@JasonAGross: “Music is always a must for me. Listening to different types of music will yield different design work for me as well.”

@jamespero: “Mornings, definitely. I listen to music, I have different playlists for different tasks as well.”

@mynameisfin: “about 7pm ’till 3am.. (re: most productive time)”

@elefant_me: “Use gtd/kanban to plan(get ready), listen to some music to get into the mood, turn off music and turn on pomodoro!” – I added also two links to explain what gtd, kanban and pomodoro is.

@CDGN: “star wars return of the jedi…. works like a charm” & “yep pretty much on constant loop for some reason it helps me to concentrate better.”

Responses from Facebook:

Andre Santos: “For me as webdeveloper, the best time is during the night, with music, great music, too many cigarettes and redbull.”

Sandra Auzina:  ”I watch tv while designing, give me ideas all the time, for the rest – music”

Rod Rodriguez: “I work best after every one else is asleep, music always gets me in the mood. And as a designer, browsing for inspirations always gets me to where I want to go. As for background noise, it works both ways, sometimes I do OK in complete silence, other times I need my Rock n Roll!”

Benjamin A Bredeweg:  ”yup, all-nighters. sadly true”.

Looks like almost everybody listens to music as a great companion to work with. Many people work at  late nights and early mornings, which seems to be the most productive time for them, midday isn’t the favorite pick! :)  I liked to see that several of you also mentioned TV, interesting how it actually provides some inspiration too.

Well, what about you? What helps you to get ready, be focused and work efficiently?

The Hotlist Edition #1

You’re meant to coast through Friday’s, in other words-enjoy them. Are you thinking about work? No, of course not, just don’t tell your boss you’re focusing on the weekend. (*We know it’s not Friday but it’s almost the New Year so we’re starting today).

So instead of fighting the urge, we’re going with the flow and you should too. Enter, ‘The Hotlist’. A weekly showcase of only the hottest gear, events, apps, websites and maybe even some music. If it’s ‘hot’ that week, it will show up here. After-all we have to ‘Fuel Your Creativity’ and we think this is a great way to jumpstart you and your weekend.
