Have you ever noticed that people would listen to music with headphones while they take the subway, walk on the road or even work? People’s life has been inseparable from music and it permeates in every aspect of life. There also are many music apps for us such as Apple Music, Music On, Spotify and so on. And these music apps all have stunning logos to create good impressions to attract their audience. A logo is the face of a music app and the company which will help your audience recognize your brand and support it. So, we should create a unique and memorable logo to make our music apps and our business go on for a long time.
Here I will show you some suggestions about designing unique music logos and recommend some good music apps.
1.Suggestion about designing music logos
①Know your target audience
Before we decide to design a logo, we should know which kind of people is our target audience, so does music logos. Only when we find our target audience, can our music app and music logo be successful. For example, this logo is obviously designed for young people for that its name is “Pop Music”. So we’d better not to recommend this music app to the old people. And the colorful shapes around the name also say that it is a kind of music app aimed for young and energetic people which gives a person a feeling of vigor and vitality. Find our target audience is the first step to achieve the success of our music logos and apps.
②Select an simple and unique image
Logos are to apps what faces are to people, while the image is the most important to a logo. A good logo image will visually convey the purpose and connotation of the app. Look at this logo, what can you see at first sight? It is a guitar, right? This is not an ordinary guitar. The stars make it special and convey a dreamy and upward feeling to people. While the app icon is not big, so we can’t make it complicated. A simple and unique image is enough.
③Choose the right fonts and colors
The image of the music logo is essential, and so are fonts and colors. Color matching and conflict are especially important. In this logo, white earphone on the dark blue background highlights the point which is very harmonious and powerful. And the font looks casual and friendly, not serious. That’s exactly what a music app needs. So choosing the right fonts and colors plays a significant role in logo designing.
At last, apps and logos that do not resonate with users are soulless. So we should represent our app’s deep meaning on the logo. Nostalgic background and splash-ink technique is very reminiscent of the past, right? This is what this logo wants to show us. We should try our best to add our feelings and related factors into the logo and resonate with our audience.
2.Recommendation of music apps
Apple Music gives you unlimited access to millions of songs and your entire music library — no matter where you are. The well-designed app is available for both Android and iOS, and though the service’s catalog of 50 million songs is clearly its biggest draw, it also includes a host of custom playlists, radio shows, and the like. A subscription starts at $10 a month for individuals; it’s $5 for a Student sub and a $15 Family option is also available. You can also upload 100,000 songs to Apple’s servers, but unlike Play Music, there’s no free option.
With Music On, you can search for your favorite songs, discover trending music. ALL FREE! You can also enjoy music as you like, shuffle or repeat and so on.
– Discover worldwide trending music in genres for free
– Quickly Search for artists, tracks, albums
– Add songs to Favorites or Playlists

One of the best-known players in the game, Spotify is a massive force in the streaming industry, boasting more than 80 million subscribers and access to 40 million tracks. You can search for any track, artist or album and listen for free; make and share playlists; build your biggest, best ever music collection. A free account only allows for Shuffle Play, so if you want to be able to play any song, listen offline, and ditch those ads, then you’ll have to cough up $10 a month to do so. There’s also the option for a cut-price Student sub that comes with Hulu access, and a Family option that cuts price for multiple accounts too.
