Logo Work

Shave the Neighbor Logo

I am a member of a rock band called Shave the Neighbor. As you can imagine by the name, the band has always had good sense of humor and adopted a lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek tone around all communications. My goal was to capture the band’s existing tone and identity, then bring it to life in visual form. The final logo pays tribute to the actual barber’s pole that we bring on stage with us, and the on-going shaving theme. Because the barber’s pole is an historical and traditional fixture, and I used retro typefaces and iconography to give a vintage aesthetic to the logo.
