DJ Society Logo

Hi folks,

This is a little non-paying side project for a friend who is incoming auditor of the DJ society of the local university. The brief is very loose, with simplicity important. I would be interested to hear thoughts on this concept… The execution is very rough at the moment.

Uses will mainly include flyers, T-shirts and posters.

Many thanks,

What is that circle represent? A vinyl or a plug?

Both; turntable, and also speaker and plug.

Ah... I get it.
The symbolism is OK, but I'm not really fond of the type.
But it's your design after all. :)

Nice graphic but my personal felling is that the type and graphic don't interact well.
Most notably between the D and the jack.

i agreed with what's been said here about the typo, but the graphic is nice and 'understandtable' :)

Thanks for the feedback. I will spend some time on the type over the weekend and check back on Monday.

It seems to me that there is not enough space between the turntable arm and the text at the bottom - they are kind of running into each other. Also, seems like the circle (record) is a little too small.

I like the overall graphic nature of the mark.

I would suggest taking a look
at any "unwanted" connotations.

Right now, in all seriousness,
it feels very phallic to me.

Just a thought.

I just assumed those connotations were wanted in a sort of tongue-in-cheek way - the phallic plug and the mammary record in the background.

If it was not designed this way, then yes, you've got a big problem :-)

Hi, there is a different hint!

The jack entering from bottom left has some weight - in relation to the symmetry!
The "DJ" (LARGE LETTERS) have weight too - in realation of all letters.

IF you let the jack entering from right top... and reachig to the same position like now... then it has TWO positive effects:
a) the jack could be interpreted as the arm of a turntable (in it's correct positon) - and
b) there will be no tight squeeze between jack and text...
