My wife is an incredibly talented singer and we are about to launch her original music project - Mama J
What we need:
We need to work with a designer who has the ability to capture the spirit of Mama J. We need a designer who can create from the heart, and not the mind. We need to work with someone who can channel Mama J.
We don’t want to give you guys any restrictions or requirements. Because, quite honestly, we have no idea what this is supposed to look like. You don’t have to think of this as a “logo”.
Basically, we need an authentic representation of Mama J. Whatever that looks like.
The image that we choose will be the cornerstone of our branding strategy and serve as inspiration for our merchandise line, website, business cards, banners, etc.
It doesn’t necessarily have to follow traditional logo / branding rules. Just tap into the feeling of Mama J.
This is a symbol that will be seen all over the world. It is going to inspire unity and change. This project is real and if you listen, it will speak to you.
We set up a temporary website so that you can listen to Mama J’s music, see her pictures, and watch a video. Here is the link:
Please note that we don’t want to use the braids as inspiration. Mama J has beautiful natural curls. (Including a graphic of mama j in the logo is not required. But if you do choose to do that, use big curls)
Who is Mama J?
Mama J is a goddess. She is bright, colorful, and energetic. She is a spiritual being. (but she is not an ultra spiritual person or a hipster) She is mothering and nurturing, but commands thunder and lightning when she needs to.
She is free. She is the earth. She is a survivor. She has overcome a lifetime of trauma and stands triumphantly on the other end as the highest version of herself. She stands in the light and in her truth.
She is radiant. She has the ability to take people to magical world with her voice and spirit.
She likes sunflowers - because they always face the light. (But this is not a requirement)
Above all else, listen to the music, watch the video and read our description of Mama J. Create from that space, and see what flows.
Cant wait to see what you create!:)
