Black Gypsy Music

Brief from client 

Image of a guy playing a guitar under a tree that resembles a woman. Her fruit is music notes and one drops on the guy, kinda like Isaac Newton and the apple. Under the tree is nothing but peace and love and music.

I tried to make this simple yet appealing. I added the burning heart to represent love. It also somewhat resembles the Sacred Heart, and since the clients company is partially christian based, I thought it would be a nice touch.

This is a good start, incorporating every idea and action, but it's too much for a logo. In other words, it's too busy. The addition of the word "music" doesn't seem necessary nor does it appear in the proper location. Try refining.

Don't get me wrong, I've put a thumb down all across the board except for the idea, but I definitively see something really cool with your logo.

The idea is great, but as 4784248media said, it's too much for a logo. Too many graphic details, too many stories being told.

Now, I'm not a fan of that gothic font. Too "dafont-y" for my taste. There are a lot of really cool professional gothic typefaces out there. You just got to find a way to get them. The subtext "music" is badly placed and the font here is plain and boring.

About the colors, I guess you wanted to go with something dark, but I don't like that black and dark burgundy match. It's just me, but either go with a full on black logo or find a better color scheme.

Anyway, there is a lot of potential here. Keep working of it!

Yeah, this could be a neat idea (lady turning into a tree thing specifically) but it's way too busy. You said you wanted simple in your description, but this is about as far away from simple as you can get!

I'd nix everything but the woman/tree thing. Get rid of the guy playing guitar, get rid of the flower/leaf grass thing below, and then really REALLY simplify the top of the tree.

I'd also suggest maybe trying a few new fonts- with such a decorative and detailed logo going on, you might want more simple text. I'd also move "music" to somewhere below the main text- I don't think it makes sense being up above.

Good idea though- just needs some work! I hope we get to see updated/revised versions! :)

Nice idea, but too many things going on. This needs to be simplified. First, I think the note hitting the fellow on the head is too small to be appreciated. In fact, the line weights used to indicate the smaller notes themselves plus the "sound" of the note on his head are just too small and precious to make an impact. I'd get rid of the burning heart, too. Again, too small and precious to be understood within the context of the overall design. No grass, no flower, no tuning pegs on the guitar. Approach it from a more iconographic perspective. Less is more. Oh, and please tuck "Music" underneath "Gypsy." It's all a solid start.
