Rising Star Shines Brighter
How branding helped a hometown hero explode on the global DJ scene.
The hype had been building for some time, and before it blew the top off, Seek-One knew he needed to be prepared for the ride. A rapidly expanding record label, and increasingly popular club night had led to many new high profile opportunities.
Knowing he needed to create visual content that would help propel his music to the next level, and wanting to encapsulate his love for music, art, and skateboarding into a recognizable look, the time was right to develop a brand identity.
With such a diverse set of influences, how to combine them to hit all the right notes?

DJ Seek-One is a genuine 'People's Champion.'
Coming from a background of inclusivity, he has helped push many other artists to the forefront of Southern California's House Music scene.
As an illustrator himself, Seek-One is a huge fan of the cartoon aesthetic, and wanted to capture that playful feel in his social media content, while visually demonstrating his quest to push forward musically.
The final product was two variants of the logo , a longer rectangle shaped configuration and a square, stacked version. The italicized text indicates motion, and is reinforced by the arrow shapes that become apparent
From there, the mark could be applied to album art, social media content, stage visuals, flyers, and more.
Additionally, he requested stage visuals that featured his likeness reminiscent of a well known cartoon series opener.
This new array of graphical elements covered a breadth of use cases to help increase his profile to the House Music industry.
With a series of releases on prominent labels like Rock Bottom Records, House of Hustle, Dirtybird, and his own Spoon Fed Records, Seek-One was able to consistently top the Beatport Tech House charts.
These chart-toppers helped secure impressive gigs at festivals like We Are All One, Nocturnal Wonderland, the legendary Dirtybird Campout, and sold out crowds at the re-opening of Space Taco.
The hometown hero is now a bona fide global hit-maker, with content to match.
