Honestly, I like all three of the concepts I came up with for St. Vincent, but I went with the scribble-black-hole one over the rest because I think it is the most interesting jumping-off point for a campaign.
I tried to branch out with my Animal Collective concepts and do something less comfortable for me — and I’m not sure I succeeded. At all. But I wanted it to look messy and dirty, and I do think I managed that, at least. I went with the first one because it had a sound-wave, broken-music feel that was interesting to me.
Les Savy Fav
After the note that Les Savy Fav has a sense of humor to them that I didn’t quite capture with my imagery, I tried to branch out in that direction — while keeping some of the ‘garage band’ feel that was my immediate gut reaction. The first two are a riff on the same campaign concept; the combination of ‘raucus’ with a rather indifferent looking smiley is something that appeals to me. The last is another direction.
