Striatum is a startup video-game video production company which makes beautiful, intense, and emotional videos for our clients. We take game footage that they record via our recording devices, and then have our video editors pair it with the right music and editing to make incredible looking montages that the player can enjoy and also use to promote themselves. Our logo is so important because we also promote and sell apparel such as t-shirts, hats, etc that hold our logo and have dozens of different designs to print, all centered around our logo. We are very big on giving back, and so we donate a portion of all profits to brain disease research (such as Parkinsons Disease), and so we want our logo to be sported by our customers as supports of these causes as well.
The Striatum, by the way, is a part of your brain involved with motor function, and is also responsible for that “tingly” feeling you get when you hear music or see a movie that drives an excited response from your body. The name was fitting for our company.
This logo will be used on t-shirts, hats, websites, and many other places, it must be versatile. The attached images (especially the black/white one) are along the lines of what we are looking for, and should be able to be used with, or without the STRIATUM name attached.
The logo should be some-what simple, polished, and versatile while maintaining an intense look. We want the logo to be able to exist on its own (i.e. without the name STRIATUM attached to it) but also with the name there sometimes. We also do not have a suitable font for Striatum, but we like minimalist, abstract designs. Our desired color scheme is Grey/Black/White (Grey is the cause color for Brain Diseases), but versatile enough to make a rainbow version someday if we wanted to for a limited edition T-Shirt design. This logo will go on our website, apparel, be edited by our video editors, and kind of be stamped everywhere, so it is important that it be memorable.
