From 2013 to 2017, I was the primary songwriter and vocalist for the rock group Freaks for Geeks. When it came time for a logo, I wanted something that felt like a graffiti tag without all of the drips and overspray. The final icon serves the dual purpose of representing both the band’s FFG initials and the symbols for “sharp” and “flat” in musical notation.
The logo was used on promotional assets as well as merchandise, from stickers and buttons to t-shirts and album covers. In a project documented for the DIY community on Reddit, I also cut the logo into a light box that was used on stage during performances.
