Hello there,

I'm working on a music label called "Trap Time" and one of the only things I still need is a logo. Now, I understand that I shouldn't expect a stunning logo being made for free. But since our budget isn't too high, I tried Fiverr. For 10$ I got the ugliest logo I've ever seen. Really disappointing. So I decided to make a little logo myself since I do have some designing experience (only Photoshop, not really with Illustrator and such, which is often used for this kind of work afaik). So what I'm asking you guys is if anyone could make us something with the name "Trap Time". It doesn't have to be a full logo, but like a little sketch/idea will do. Then I can work on it. I'm just out of ideas right now and can't seem to come up with something.

So the text should be Trap Time and perhaps something with a little watch or something else that has to do with time could be cool. I'm looking for a pretty thick text and not too many details. Nothing too 3Dish with lots of effects. Just something plain and catchy/cool.

Would be awesome if some of you could give it a try.

Cheers!

Alright, so the Fiverr logo creator asked me for colors, and I told him/her that I don't have anything specific in mind yet, so the person gave a black/white logo with literally 0 effort put into it. The person literally just sent me something so I can't do a chargeback.

I messed around in Photoshop for awhile but didn't get any proper results, thus I don't have any drafts saved. That's why I'm here, to get a good idea started. What I did figure though, is that I'd love the theme color to be black/gray and red. Kind of a blood red color.

I find it very hard to achieve something similar though. Any ideas?

EDIT: So here are some screenshots. It's basically a videoclip that uses the same colors that I was thinking off. (not the same patterns and shapes and stuff, just talking about the colors here):

I like what you have done here - just my 2 penneth but I would make the "dropshadow" slightly less focused. At this level of definition it mainly gives the impression of something that is blurred - a bit like a stereoscopic image. Really like the idea!

I like that it works from a distance - would work well as a single tone image if necessary but also works with the subtle colour scheme you have used.

Cheers

I had already replied to this on my phone, but looking back to the thread now, the message didn't come through properly (probably my terrible wi-fi connection). So again, this logo is actually really cool! I really dig it, eventhough it has kind of a heavy metal style to it, which is not the music I focus on at all. But it isn't too much, it looks dope. Kind of what I had in mind aswell actually! :)

I do kind of agree with fredfish though, especially the "r" and "p" from "Trap" look kind of blurred rather then shadowed. I might use this though, it's really cool so thanks alot!

No words needed. The logo says it all :rofl:
