Overview

UPDATE:
With only 5.5 hours left in the contest, I will now only provide minimal feedback for entirely new entries. If your new entry is absolutely stunning and breathtakingly original you may get some feedback from me. Otherwise new entries will get only a star rating at most.

Thank you to everyone who has entered for your great work!

-----------------------------------
I am a music producer and composer based in New York City. Versatile and wide ranging, I work in many styles of music from jazz and electronica, to hip hop, rock and soul. Originally a drummer, I excel at holding it down and helping musicians achieve their musical aspirations with an empathetic, discerning, and astute ear. As a composer, I work collaboratively with artists of all different backgrounds (film, theater, dance, and television) to marry music with their artistic visions.

I am seeking a simple, bold, and creative logo that conveys my core identity traits of:

Good listener - first audience for a musician, learns all sides of a situation
Analyst - Solves musical problems
Empathetic - Ability to be in other people’s shoes
Grounded - Down to earth, holding it down
Versatile - knowledge of history/styles/genres, rhythm, timbres
No nonsense - tells it like it is, illuminates truth

Brand essence: Bridging worlds (As producer: bridging between art & commerce. As composer: bridging between rhythm & melody, sound & image.)

You can listen to some samples of my work below to get a taste of my sound-world (some is music I composed and/or performed, some is by other artists with me in the producer role).

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

I work with musicians of all styles and genres to help them realize their musical aspirations. I also write original scores for film, television, theater, dance, puppetry, and other musicians.

In the past few years I was the drummer for the Spanglish Rock band, Caramelize; produced records for post-jazz artists Benny Lackner and Hillary Maroon; and wrote scores for choreographer Sasha Welsh and film-maker Amir Bar-Lev. I am about to launch my website JWhyMusic.com and begin work on a new record release.

The brand/customer relationship is: A trusted friend with good judgment who tells it like it is.

Requirements

I am seeking a strong LOGO with WORD MARK.

I believe in letting the designer do their job and bring their own creative talents to bear. I’m open to many interpretations and designs. The only restriction is that I *do not* want any question marks in the logo design (Why is enough of a question). In a general sense, these are my requirements for the logo:

1. Simple/Bold

2. Elegant

3. Striking (of course)

4. Look good in Black & White

5. Look good in all sizes: from small on the spine of a CD case (ie. 1/4” high) to LARGE on a t-shirt or web page

6. Logo can stand alone, independent of the word mark
