Whilst revisiting some old work I was going through some folders and came across this project I created for the drum and bass collective, Black Sun Empire. Sad to say this logo never made it through the approval process. So it remained for years buried in a folder.

I was invited to come up with some concepts for the logo and brand design for Black Sun Empire. The brief was pretty open, with just some vague visual references to work from.

The design was created around the idea of combining the letters BSE into one shape. I looked at the way old clock LED screens work, the way they have a ‘grid’ of linear shapes at different angles, that can be combined to create any digit. This idea was adapted to form the BSE letters. The logo was versatile in as much as it could be used as individual letters, or combined to make the symbol and the symbol could be repeated to create a cool pattern.
