I’ve designed a number of logos here and there, mostly for myself and occasionally for friends, but this is a commission from someone who doesn’t even know me, which is always lovely. I enjoyed creating a new design for a new company, DB Media. I didn’t know what they did when I took the gig, but it turns out they create these really stunning FPV drone videos. You can check some of these videos out on their YouTube channel. My favorite is the Crested Butte video. You can also find them on Instagram at @FPVGroove.
If you’re near Denver, I think this company would be a splendid choice to document things like fancy weddings or, if you’re, say, a realtor selling big estates, it would be a spectacular marketing tool. This medium has its own unique artistry (based on its own unique technical skills).
After dabbling with a handmade font based on the client’s signature, the fonts we eventualy settled on are Brush Script Standard Medium for the letters “DB” and Century Schoolbook Bold for the word “Media.” The design is based on Colorado’s Flatiron Mountains, rendered in 2 shades of gray, so it sits nicely behind the text without fading into obscurity.
