In this Masterclass, Max is going to teach you the fundamentals of band and artist branding, from concept to show, Max is going to walk you through his approach to branding and how you can make sure your image and sound is next level!
Imagery: How you vision yourself as a musician and also a brand is very important. This can be the difference between converting someone into a fan or them scrolling past you.
You logo is the first thing a lot of people will see, make sure that your logo really does represent what your band is about.
Create a key words list. This is a list of words that would describe your music and the type of band you are. It’s very important to always go back to this list (the roots of who you are as a band) from time to time.
Using picture walls or Pinterest to put together what you would like your imagery to be like is key. This is very helpful when creating a band logo.
Having a key words list and also an idea of what you want your logo to look like is key when having a graphic designer work with you.
Branding done right can last you a career.
Having a main font but also a support font is key to your branding. Your main font is your logo and the support font is for important information including venues / dates / times etc.
