Grain Guitars Logo Design.

They wanted a simple logo design that they could place on anything from a guitar head and carry case to a website or magazine. Something that stood up against Gibson and Fender , but also represented that these guitars are – cut from a different grain.

The Brief

Grain Guitars make one of a kind uniquely formed wood grain finishes and guitars. It’s even in their name. They wanted a simple logo design that they could place on anything from a guitar head and carry case to a website or magazine. Something that stood up against Gibson and Fender , but also something that represented that these guitars are different – and that the difference was in the wood grains they were made from.

The Solution

For this concept I had to follow my gut. My Dad was a carpenter by trade and I myself was a guitarist in a rock band for over 10 years. The experiences you have in life help make visual associations come easy. The obvious idea to me for these guys was to get the symbolic icon of a guitar to happen in the natural grain of the wood. It’s simple, it’s iconic, it’s memorable – and I’m glad to say it’s the concept the client chose. Rock on!!
