I was fortunate enough to have my work feature in David Hunters Data Walking book that looked into gathering environmental data and how it could be visualised.
"Data Walking is a funded research project exploring the potential of walking to gather environmental data and through multiple walks and visualisations build a rich picture of that area. The project examines technology and tools for creative data gathering and experimenting with data visualisation, to create tools, gain insight, and share knowledge."
Does a band need a logo?
Does a band need a logo? For a lot of people a brand is just the company/products logo. The image that you see plastered over everything that they produce. But it is different for a band, they interact with their fans differently than a company will with their customers.
First they are selling something that is not really seen. In the digital age with downloads and streaming on the rise you no longer get a physical product. You never get to touch the music that you are listening to. With Vinyl and CD’s you see the album artwork that may or may not have the band’s logo on it. Also if you are listening to the music on the radio you won’t even get to see the album cover you will just hear the DJ say the band’s name before or after the song and I believe that many bands will build their brand on their name.
