Bandstand branding

A new logo for Naomi and her Handsome Devils


Naomi & Her Handsome Devils are one of the best swing dance/lindy hop bands around. The Devils have decades of experience playing hot jazz as some of the top young talent in the Chicago and New York traditional jazz scenes, and Naomi hand picked her favourite musicians to come together and make music. 

In the run up to releasing their second album Naomi approached me about refreshing their identity as a band. Naomi, inspired by the Art Deco illustrations of Erté, wanted a look that fitted the band's Swing Era sound. She also wanted  something that would look good on a music stand! 

The logo is a monogram of the bands initials and draws heavily from Art Deco and Nouveau influences.
