Font and Colors of the Emblem
The name of a musical group is a harmonious combination of text and symbolic signs. The capital letters “THE” are elegantly executed and reminiscent of modern italics in style.
The second part is uppercase, with geometric typography and wide elements that echo the doors’ image. They are best seen in the legs “d” and “r,” depicted in the form of tall rectangles. Two “o” – caps of self-tapping screws, with which doors are usually attached. This font resembles Densmore: it also consists of fragmentary unconnected elements.
The monochrome palette makes the logo look stylish and powerful. Traditionally, it features black, white, and olive. And thanks to the balanced selection of colors, the musicians’ logo still looks modern.
