Red business tie

Barnsley Town Concert Band is a local community organisation and has around 50 members aged from 10 years plus and play at a wide range of venues and events with a broad selection of musical styles, catering for all tastes and ages.

They needed a smart logo which would appeal to young members, while keeping the bands traditional roots. I was given a fairly open brief, with the main constraint being that the new logo had to be suitable for embroidering on to waistcoats, blazers or printed onto ties.

I decided to keep things clean and bold with a bit of a flourish by creating a stylised graphic of an abstract view down the end of a trumpet. I used gold on burgundy to ensure that the group retains a classic feel.
