This logo was created for Classical Revolution PDX which is a Portland based chamber orchestra open to new musicians. The orchestra performs a wide range of music in less traditional settings like at bars or venues that might usually cater more to rock shows. The concept was to create a logo that presented a revolutionary spirit, still has a classical element to it and can still speak to an audience with an appreciation for punk rock and beer.
The final outcome was to incorporate a figure in the neo-classical style like you would find associated with the French Revolution (as shown above). An earlier version (shown left) spoke more to constructivist design and 20th century revolution, but in keeping with listening to the client and meeting their specific goals for their brand, the final outcome for the design moved away from this initial direction.
