Help Redesign A National Booking Agency

Background & Creative Allies Design Contest

As you may know, the parent company of Hypebot and Music Think Tank is the boutique national booking agency Skyline Music. This summer Skyline is getting a makeover. A management consultant  might call it repositioning to reflect changing market conditions; and given the state of live touring and it's importance to artists, many things do need to change - drastically.

Most promoters and labels lack the resources to market effectively; and when they try, finding and engaging the right audience is increasingly difficult. The industry  also often creates its own barriers to fan participation with high ticketing fees, expensive merchandise and value-added packages that seem to be more about making more money than rewarding fan loyalty.

Our Creative Allies Contest:

To create a new logo, we turned to the new Creative Allies community of designers. On a site fathered by the music marketing geniuses at Music Allies, bands, labels, festivals and companies of all stripes describe what they are looking for and create a contest to reward the best submissions. In just the first few days, designers have offered 29 Skyline Music logos that are indicative of  the incredible work done for many of the other contests.
