Logo, pins and T-shirts with a wild feel for Oh Lazarus, a musical band formed in 2011.
HOW IT STARTED. A friend asked me to design the logo for his band, a Gothic Americana Trio called Oh Lazarus.
THE BLACKBIRD. The logo I designed for Oh Lazarus is intended to represent an American country atmosphere, with a genuine, uncorrupted and wild feel. The blackbird standing on the U, as if standing on a fence watching over the surroundings, recalls the particular world of Oh Lazarus, besides translating the surname of two of the band members.
WHO. Oh Lazarus is a musical band formed in 2011 from former band Where is Bob?. Their Facebook page reads: The rule of the game is simple – “What you see is what you hear (no post-production), and if you are hearing it, sooner or later you’ll be seeing it (no hidden sound)”. Oh Lazarus publishes a few video songs on YouTube, among which “Everyday” by Buddy Holly and “Little Boxes” by Malvina Reynolds. At the end of 2011 drummer Daniele “Danni” LaBarbera joins the band. Oh Lazarus’ music is a blend of Old Time Music, Gospel, Delta Blues, Pre-War Folk, Hill Country Blues and Gothic Americana with a Punk/Busker twist.
