Without wanting to step on anyone’s toes, I am not a fan of band logos and find them highly overrated. Bands evolve with every album, looks and styles change and while a logo works perfectly fine for an album cycle, there’s probably just a hand full of bands that can still pull it off with the same logo they have been using forever.
But to answer the question - I wish I had designed the lips for The Rolling Stones. It’s such an amazing icon that works in every medium, color or capacity without saying the band’s name. To me it’s the equivalent of Warhol’s Campbell’s Tomato Soup.
The one artist you should follow on Instagram is Ryan Thomas Monahan who is a miniature sculptor and a hell of a funny guy (please watch his IG stories). Pulling a lot from pop culture and movies, his pieces are super detailed, unique and suck you right into the scene. Go check him out!
The most iconic music photograph is the cover for Minor Threat’s Salad Days EP. Glen Friedman’s photo became so iconic that it got reimagined many times over the past years. From the Golden Girls, to The Simpsons or Black Sabbath.
