Cosmonaut Grechko Logo by AlternateRaiL Cosmonaut Grechko Logo by AlternateRaiL
Been working with Cosmonaut Grechko for a few weeks now, on a whole bunch of stuff. This is a logo I created for him that he may or may not use. Dunno yet. Either way I'm pretty stoked with how it turned out.

Check out his work HERE

How did you make those static tv lines going through the entire text? They look awesome!

Created a halftone pattern of a black and white noise texture then I changed the blending mode and possibly blurred it. I did it so long ago so don't hold me to that.

Cheers. Yeah I think it does have a Daft Punk vibe. Probably the handdrawn text against the black background.

I'm really loving this logo. Hand drawn is a great look.
I'm enjoying his music too.

Thanks. I really wanted to make him something like this and tried and failed for roughly a fortnight. Then one night I finally broke through and it just came together. His music is really rad for sure. Certainly helps to inspire me.

Thanks man, handmade is really difficult and frustrating without a wacom tablet though. I have dozens of failed versions of this. You don't want to see the mess on the Illustrator canvas for it.

That is very very cool. I hope he uses it, you put hard work into it. I know what it's like to put hard work into something and it not be used... makes me sad. :(

Yeah if you check his Myspace he's got it up. I also did his EP artwork that's coming out some time in the next couple of months, and a new EP that he may be releasing in less than a month. We communicate pretty regularly so it's not so much a question of whether he uses something I did for him, more whether he uses this particular one. But yeah I would feel like he was wasting this a bit if he didn't like the look of it, if I do say so myself.

Cosmonaut Grechko? awesome name. what genre is his/her music?

Yeah it's electronic, it's really amazing actually, there's a link to his work in the description. The great thing is I was already a fan of his work before he got in contact with me to do this stuff so it was a dream come true basically.

well i'll have to check him out them for sure. haven't bought anything electronic in a while to be honest. i've been mostly buying some underground albums from my homeland.

Yeah all I'm listening to is Lo-Fi and Chillwave stuff from America too. Bands with like, 2000 listeners worldwide. But Grechko got me listening to and loving electronic again.

i'll have to listen to electronic again then. the closest i've been listening to electronic right now is Zombie-Zombie and they have some pretty good synth music.

but when i say homeland, i'm from Iceland so i've been listening to now a lot of rock & classical music from there (except for electronic acts like GusGus, FM Belfast and múm if you want to consider them electronic). The best ones i've found were For a Minor Reflection which sound like Explosions in the Sky mixed with Sigur Rós and Ólafur Arnalds who makes some very good baroque-esque ballads.

Oh right. Yeah I don't really have the patience for music like that right now. Really simple, effective Lo-Fi Pop is grabbing me right now. I was in that mindset for like more experimental and in depth music not even like, 6 months ago, but my tastes have undergone a complete overhaul. It's really strange.

yeah i have that too. i sued to like techno for a brief period and then stop listening to it completely. it didn't interest me anymore and i started to hate it a little even.

It's all handmade typography. And then I brought it into photoshop to add all the fancy effects and colours. I went through at least a dozen iterations and colours before i settled on this. Glad you like it, I hope it gets the recognition it deserves because I put heaps of work into it.
