Looking for honest opinions. It's OK if you want to bag on it.
Like it, S2.
I like the concept a lot but I would probably choose a different lettering style... cool idea...
Close, I would throw a few more out for us to choose from...
It strikes me as the urge is fading or being washed away. Perhaps some minor modification would make it seem to be building?
Looks like it belongs on Stu Hamms signature Fender bass.
honestly i do not like it. maybe change the font?
art cannot be done by commitee
when I do designs, I don't try to make anyone happy but me - otherwise its quick to become crap
I feel like the word 'urge' in general denotes products of lesser quality and cheesy appeal - as if it would be better placed on a bottle of perfume than a boutique amplifier.
The lettering or font is very similar to Crate lettering on there amps other than that it should work.
Crate. OUCH! Good point. I'm glad I haven't ordered these things yet!
I was also kinda thinking of changing the name to Storyville. What thinks you folks of that?
I like the concept but it could definitely use a bolder, stronger font. Something with a little more meat to it.
I definately think that has a classier appeal than Urge. I think it depends on what sort of image and models you plan on releasing. In the end however, do what suits you best!
+1 on the meatier lettering
As it is, I don't like this logo
The name sounds good for high gain amps, but Storyville's definitely better for vintage oriented products
I would ask "what does this tell me?" To me, without knowing what it's for I'm thinking that's a wave in the logo and then I'd think maybe water park. KNOWING that it came from a music company I'd see the guitar in it and think "cool they are coming out with a new guitar". I did a logo years ago for a friend who had an car audio online shop. I used a little "speaker type" flare to help it out. It came out great and between the name and the speaker flare it worked good.
I agree. To be honest, urge conjures up an uncontrollable feeling of having to urinate or defecate. I think it'd work well for adult diapers, or a highly caffeinated soda.
Funny you should mention that. I was going to name the first amp "BM1".
Keep the opinions coming folks!
I agree with Storyville.
Placed in a classy vintage looking font. I think that would be a smart move for marketing and help with your sales..
URGE-->Sounds like an amp used in a Porn flick.....
I've also been thinking about 6th Street Amplifiers. What do you guys think of that one?
