I run an artist management agency called Arte Viva Management (Arte Viva means Live Art) in Cape Town, South Africa.
Our core business is:
1 - artist representation - we manage a select group of musicians/bands, with potential to expand in future into an agency also for actors/dancers etc
2 - production services - running tours for other musicians, local and international
The main music genres are jazz/african/world music.
We also provide production services for other performing arts - theatre, dance etc.
I'm open to colour combos etc, have played with pink/fuschia, teal, navy - but totally open. I want a logo and visual identity that evokes:
creativity, artistic flair, personality,
as well as professionalism, top quality and reliability
funky - can draw on african and latin american influences
I've seen a few logos with illustrations that show a whole bunch of stuff - line drawings - coming out of the logo, I like that idea of a bunch of creativity coming out of our business.
Don't want anything twee and stereotypical - no musical notes, instruments.
Look forward to seeing some amazing designs which will then provide our logo, visual identity, website design.
Once I have the VI, I'll commission the Website (potentially Wordpress based), so if you are a designed who also does web, that will be great!
