Band Logo for The Mutts

Matt Pike


The Story

I woke up to a message from Justin, the lead singer for The Mutts, telling me he had an idea for a new logo for the band. This is what he sent:

Logo idea for The Mutts — created with MS Paint, obviously

The Process

To start with, I gathered some illustrations of dogs that resembled the above image, and I asked the band to choose one that they liked the most. They went with an English Mastiff — which, as was later pointed out to us, isn't a mutt, but it did give us the rough-around-the-edges look that they had envisioned with their name — so I found some reference images and went to work.

The Result

Once we had the logo, the band sent my files to a local print shop to make stickers and a banner. Here's the banner, as well as The Mutts in their practice space.

Rock on, fellas. Rock on.
