Hangin With Stogie is an all-girl group from Fredericksburg, Virginia. They came to work with Jeff and Palette during the Spring and Summer of 2012. At that time they did not have an actual logo, but had been using paw prints to represent the group as they were named after their dog “Stogie.”
I wanted to come up with a look for their EP design that was “young” and would also stand out. I also needed to create a logo that I thought would work for them. The paw print was already in use, but I added the heart and flower and text that has a “handwritten” look.
The band (and their parents) liked the EP design so much that they wanted me to design a background banner that looked just like the background on the EP. This was an interesting challenge since I had to try to figure out how to place the Logo on the banner so that it would be readable when the girls stood in front. I decided to use one of the photos I had of the 3 girls standing. I cut them out of the background, found out how tall the girls were and created the banner based upon this. The banner is nearly 9 feet wide by 8 feet tall. You can see the band pictured in front of the banner.
Stogie then released a digital single and wanted to keep a similar look as the EP so I changed up the colors and used a different photo. This design was also used for a poster and flyers.
