Being a graphic designer, I’m used to critiquing and being critiqued. I love it when I come across an eye-catching design. I’m dedicating this blog to The Gracious Few. This is definitely in my top 5 favorite logos of all time. The Gracious Few Logo consists of the 3 most important aspects in logo design:

 

1. Branding

2. Identity

3. Icon

 

It’s memorable and easy to remember. It doesn’t look like every other band logo out there. It’s a gender neutral (not too feminine) I like the fact that they could’ve gotten a way with just a text font but they added swirls to give it that victorian style look. Speaking of victorian..you will learn very quickly i’m a big fan of this style and also the distressed. You can see in this design that they added a rather cool clipping mask which gives it just the right amount of texture effect.

One other thing I would like to note about this logo is that the font they chose is unique and not seen or used by any other context. Typography is such an important aspect of designing and this is a perfect example of just how much it plays a part in branding a name or business.  Also, I have seen this band live and they are awesome! Cheers to The Gracious Few..
