I wanted to keep with the minimalist look, but perhaps take a few more risks when it came to design.
Soon after, it also became clear to me that maybe certain characters in sci fi or comic book movies and television shows had fake products either during or after their careers. For example, Commander William Riker from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" was a trombone player. I thought it would be hilarious to imagine Riker opening up his own music academy after serving his time in Starfleet.
So far, I only have a handful of designs like these, but I hope to do more. Again, it's making sure that it plays and it's simple enough that people will get it and enjoy it.
Here's to the next few designs that hopefully will come about soon.
