Modernist Brand Identity for Beat School


Alex Townsend shared a brand identity project create for Beat School,  a Houston based music publishing company comprised of music producers from around the US. The identity needed to be music related, simple and slightly urban. The result is a modernist mark with bold typography and a contrasting color palette. To inject a bit of personality into the brand, I couldn't help using a school materials aesthetic for the presentation.
