‘Piano Wolf Recordings’ Logo

Whilst creating the artwork for Ed Harcourt's Lustre album, he also asked me if I'd like to draw a logo for his record label which is called 'Piano Wolf Recordings'. Lustre is the first album Ed has released on his own label, and it's been distributed through Essential Music Marketing (in North America, the album was released through Nice Music Group).Ed had painted a basic image of what he wanted onto a canvas, which you can see in the photo below, and I drew a solid logo replicating the painting.

After experimenting with various fonts for the words 'Piano' and 'Wolf' we both agreed and decided that the drawn version of the words looked the most effective. I reworked the drawing several times, reducing the size of the wolf head and experimenting with the wolf colours making both black and white versions.

This is the finished logo we were both really happy with:

Below you can see a black wolf version which probably won't be used in print anywhere as the white wolf version is the official logo, but we both felt that the black wolf looked pretty cool when tiny.

Here's the white wolf logo in a couple of sizes demonstrating how clear the image is:

Here's the logo on the album CD in a reduced size:
