Company or website name

Logo for inlay for the top of a guitar headstock

Slogan or Tagline

The logo with be an “M” because my last name is Manuel

Describe your company and organization and target audience

Guitar building company.

The design should have the following

The logo needs to be simply enough that it can be cut out in decorative pearl shell and inlaid into the wood Vanderbilt of the headstock. The size of the M should be 1”x1” but I will need files that allow me to revise it if need be. The M can have other very simple design elements attached to it but keep in mind that if so the design element needs to be connected to the M by a this piece so when cut out of the pearl it is all one piece. You can reference Martin guitars, Gibson guitars, fender guitars and any small independent makers you can find online to get an idea for this. The logo must be original and have no copyright issues.

This logo will be used for

  • Online (Website, facebook etc.)
  • Print (business cards, letterheads, brochures etc.)
  • Merchandise (mugs, t-shirts etc.)
  • Signs (including shops, billboards etc.)
  • Television/screen

This design should not have this in the entries

I’ve attached a picture of the basic idea and would like to see similar things to that but also so creative ideas. It doesn’t have to be simple tho for the type of use.

What style of logo would you like?

Colors to use in the design
