So back in the day I ran around with a few intimidating fellows. John Ranck, Sam Mylin (slightly related) and Tony Guyer to name a few. These guys helped define my high school years. As time passed we went different directions… which happens. John drove off to Alaska, Sam got married and Tony went to recording school in Ohio. A few months back I got to have coffee with Tony and catch up, turns out he’s completely submerged in music- which is no surprise. Our discussion led to his personal studio, Forgotten Genre Productions, which was moving to a new, larger location and expanding. All this to say Tony was looking for new art.
I was so honored to work with this guy, he’s got a passion for music, but not just any music. Music that comes from within… it sounded better when he said it. but anyway we launched into concepts for the studio logo focusing on the honey bee. Turns out there are scientists who are trying to figure out how to recreate what the honey bee does without the honey bee. A fake bee. Tony feels that way about music – that you can’t just replace the original. It’s old skool thought but good.
My focus became creating a clean, yet classic look with details that embody music production… and then we wrapped it on a high contrast amp to make it more cool. So here’s the amp logo.
