Blue Arcade, a three piece Indie Rock band originally formed in the UK, now based in Melbourne.
For the last few years I have designed for them. The briefs for these pieces of work have provided me with direction, yet a degree of freedom. I have been able to work closely with the band to accurately portray and understand their vision.
When designing the logo, my process began with asking the band what ‘Blue Arcade’ meant to them. Gaining, "Blue Arcade is like maths with the writing and producing - sad, serious yet hopeful." After working closely with the band for some time I was able to offer that, ‘Blue Arcade is a doorway to the member’s goals and desires.’ Utilising the definition of arcade as a passage.
The above logo was developed and refined. Bright sunrays shooting into a passage/arcade-way shaped by the bands initials.
