Band logo design tips

Color palette

Your choice of color should reflect the personality of your band. Many heavy metal bands choose black and white, while some country artists opt for brown or orange. Whichever combination you choose, it should feel like a natural extension of your music. To get started, create color combos yourself with our easy logo maker — you can even see how the colors come to life on the t-shirts your fans will soon be wearing!


Are you a pop band with a lot of love songs? Try including a stylized or abstract heart. Punk band with a lot of doom and gloom? Skulls are always popular. Pick a symbol your band can relate to and your fans will be attracted to. You can try out as many symbols as you like to see what resonates with your band. Need some ideas to start? Our logo generator can help you narrow your options to some truly epic symbols.


Whether you’re including initials, a slogan, or the name of your band, your typography is a critical piece of your logo. Fonts can be gentle and calming or bold and statement-making — it all depends on your style of music! Try serif vs sans-serif fonts to see what suits your band logo best.
