Collaborate with us on an era-appropriate 1990’s wordmark logo for the Disco Ball Research and Investigation Society (DBRIS) thatwould have been used for various internal communications and initiatives, such as organizational letterhead, newsletters, memos, and ID badges.
Interested artists should submit an original DBRIS wordmark logo design based on the brief.
Files should be delivered in editable AI, SVG, PDF, or EPS vector formats.
DBRIS plays a key role in the core narrative of THE DISCO BALL, eventually serving as a resource in the epic quest of Captain Alma Cooke and her team of astronauts aboard the ISS. DBRIS is a civilian organization dedicated to the study of Disco Ball Theory, which posits that our reality is composed of an infinite number of parallel universes existing simultaneously, much like the multitude of reflections created by a disco ball. Recently, DBRIS made the unprecedented decision to make their presence known to the public for the first time after years of dedicated research in the shadows. Looking ahead, we will leverage this logo as we create the lore of DBRIS using both Co-Create initiatives and original writing from our creative team, building out the canon of DBRIS by exploring this epoch of the organization’s complex history.
The artistic direction of this wordmark logo should be historically accurate to the time-period. Think of the art created for music and movies, as well as the colors and overall vibe elicited in logos from the era. The logo should feel very “90s” yet should also make sense from the perspective of DBRIS and their mission. What cultural signifiers would a DBRIS graphic designer of this era draw from to make a company logo?
