I first met Canadian DJ and producer Jim Sharp back in 2007.
At the time I was deep in the midst of a music blogging phase, back when it seemed like everyone had one. Getting music sent to you in return for writing a few words wasn’t such a bad deal.
I had found one of his remixes and decided to interview and feature a guest mix from him. He subsequently invited me to DJ at one of his usual residencies and we’ve been friends ever since.
As a 40th birthday present, I designed him a new logo. This is the result. I’ve always been a fan of Avant Garde and its alternative slanted letter forms, so using the A and M just made sense paired with his silhouette icon.
