The Mountain was a Gift

The Mountain was a Gift

The Mountain was a Gift is an indie music band. Their universe inspired me to create a self-initiated logo.

The band is composed of three friends, including two brothers. Their universe revolves around nature, which leads them to often tour outdoors.

Research

I wanted to stay close to the « roots » feel of the band. It needed to be clean and legible, but keep a hand-made feel. The logo is designed as a sticker or a patch that you can find on travelers’ backpacks. It displays a stylized mountain which is crowned by rays of light. This is a literal interpretation of the band’s name, underlining the honest and simple approach of the band.

I kept the hand-drawn touch on the lettering for a more authentic feeling. The simplicity of the letters allow it to remain legible.

The result is an eye-catching yet subtle logo that matches the band’s style and values.
