The Sam Willows
I got to know The Sam Willows just as they were in the middle of recording their first self-named album. I have to say that they are some of the most talented and good looking musicians this side of the world! Armed with a bit more design experience, I went back to iron out some of the kinks in the logo design I had previously done for them.
The thing about logo design is that we tend to underestimate the sheer amount of work that goes into doing great logos - there's math and test groups and all that kind of stuff that is usually done. Freelance designers like me don't usually have that luxury, though.
I introduced some basic geometry to the logo, enhancing its visual flow as well as making it read better in smaller sizes. As a result, the backwards "S" also became way more visible.
