Logo design for a hardtechno / hardstyle rave party. Mantis is the new name for a bi-monthly hardtechno party at the pop venue Hedon. With a bpm over 150, heavy distortion and prominent kickdrums this party is not for the faint hearted. So don’t expect Tiesto or Armin van Buren here. Because of the hard nature of this dance style the new logo asked for an aggressive look.
Mantises are exclusively predatory and their diet usually consists of living insects; larger species have been known to prey on small lizards, frogs, birds and snakes. Perfect for a hardtechno name.
The logo is a very stylistic mantis head resembling somewhat a human skull which is common in the scene. Extra treatment were given to the eyes to give it a bit more agressive look. The name is set in a hard and bold font resembling an metallic / industrial look.
