Drawing influence from house music, folk tradition, and 20th-century jazz, Social Eyes becomes home to an eclectic collage of sounds. Our approach to image-making centred around experimentation and ambiguity.

New Standards

New Standards is a weekly music series intended to foster community and create space for musicians, artists, and listeners to imagine. New Standards is creative improvised music, every Wednesday at The Common in Edmonton.

The development of the visual identity came from a confluence of inspiration. We wanted the identity to communicate experimentation and ecclecticism, while staying true to the modern aesthetic found in modern jazz. 


Identity
Leaning into the dynamic and adaptable nature of improvised music, New Standards’ icon is designed to be re-arranged. As improvised music morphs freely from one musical passage to the next, our icon shifts, too.

Stealing visual cues from New York subway signage, the identity uses two common symbols to communicate our vision: arrow, square. New Standards is exploratory and familiar. New Standards is forward-thinking, yet grounded in tradition.










*This is a project in collaboration with Biboye Onanuga, Gareth Gilliland and Sean Croal; the folks who make up the New Standards House Band.
