A great logo has to stand the test of time so it’s difficult to look past the greats here. Purely for the balls of it, I’d have to say I wish I’d designed the artist logo for The Rolling Stones.

The one artist you should follow on Instagram is Nina Nesbitt. I’m constantly telling my artists to watch how creative she is, she’s a real trendsetter. She was the first UK star to really embrace TikTok last year and reaped the benefits massively. She understands her audience better than anyone and knows how to create social media content they’ll love.
