|Numinous The Music of Joseph C. Phillips Jr.|
The Numinosum Blog
If you were at the Numinous concert of Vipassana on Wednesday night, besides the wonderful performance you also got a sneak peak at the new Numinous logo designed by Travis Williams, who also did the Pulse logo. The logo is all part of a redesign of my website (www.numinousmusic.com) which is coming soon. One of my projects this summer was thinking about how best to present Numinous and my music better in today's Web 2.0 world. So for awhile now I've been planning the redesign of my website and talking things over with my website designer, Steve Kloser at White Coyote Design, to make sure what I want will work. I'm excited about having a 'new' on-line presence with more audio and photos. Hopefully things will be up and ready by the end of the year, so stay tuned for more info.
As part of that redesign, I wanted some kind of logo which would sort of visually represent the numinous feeling I hope to imbue my compositions with. Thinking about a logo for a while now, a few weeks ago I finally approached Travis about doing it since I loved what he did for Pulse, the Schumacher/Sanford Sound Assembly, and Darcy James Argue's Secret Society. I didn't want anything 'arty' but something graphic, simple and clean. With those instructions for what I wanted from the design, as well as giving him my tagline, which I came up with over the summer, I let Travis go to work utilizing his "making stuff look cool" designer magic. And I love what he came up with: great and unique font and a strong, simple graphic idea with the rings (which can represent many things like basic sound waves or cosmic phenomena like nova or planetary rings or even good old-fashion vinyl). For now you can catch the new logo at the header to the blog and soon you'll be seeing it on my new website as well as upcoming swag. I hope you like...
