Recently designed this logo for my band, it looks unbalanced to me. Do you have any suggestions?

It's not a font, all hand drawn.

  • Its skewed to the lower right so put more in upper left. – Webster Jul 18 '17 at 14:54

    I find it more difficult to read than unbalanced... :-/ – Vinny Jul 18 '17 at 15:18
  • @DigitalLightcraft does not have an explanation in english, the band already had the name when i got in to it! – Diogo Almeida Lopes Jul 18 '17 at 15:23

    @DigitalLightcraft i'm also part of the band, as a dj. We are a kind of Electronic Funk/Soul band. – Diogo Almeida Lopes Jul 18 '17 at 15:27

Just suggestions... based upon my opinion....

Reducing the size of the S goes a long way for balance...

Combine the reduction of the S and then shift the R to connect with the K rather then a b.... and I think it's much more balanced.

quickly painted and far from perfect.

  • Thanks for the help! i'll let you know about the final result! – Diogo Almeida Lopes Jul 19 '17 at 14:56

I would try using a simple/clean geometric shape as a border or parallel lines.


You could possibly extend the bottom of the M down to be level with the bottom of the Y and S.

I think this would balance it quite well.


Looks like the first character (P) needs to be made a little bit bigger. Perhaps lengthen the stem to make it relatively taller.

That should help to balance out the low-hanging 'S' on the end too.

Maybe it's just me but it seems like that 'P' could also be kerned over to the left slightly as well...

Looks pretty good overall though!

  • Thank mate! manual kerning on hand drawn "fonts" iits hard ahah! i'll work harder on it though! – Diogo Almeida Lopes Jul 19 '17 at 14:58
  • No problem. Yes kerning is an art unto itself... Here is a site where you can practice if you're so inclined: KernType Cheers – BANG Jul 19 '17 at 19:34

Let it be. It's fine. See it in a context - for example with some performance instruments:

Without anything else it's different. If you want to try to change something, do as others have suggested, try a stronger P (=against the big S)

  • There's something i really like about it like it is! just feels unbalanced.. wtv.. thank you mate! – Diogo Almeida Lopes Jul 19 '17 at 14:59
