Coldharbour Recordings is a Miami-based electronic dance music label founded and owned by trance DJ and producer Markus Schulz in 2005. The label was formerly a sublabel of Armada Music until Schulz took the label independent in 2013. To mark the occassion, Chargefield was brought in to refresh the logo. After the successful rebrand, Chargefield has since created visual branding for artists on the label, sub brands of the label, as well as print design and motion graphics.
Evan Bane has a unique message of getting all the trappings flaunted in gangster rap, but through academic knowledge instead of crime. Chargefield was brought on to distill this unique message graphically in terms of branding and graphic design as well as create visual effects for Evan Bane's premiere single, Pocket Change.

We recently created a an animated logo sequence for Yousef Abu-Taleb's film production company, Youabu. With roots in Jordan, and being amazed by his visit to the ruins of the ancient city of Petra, Yousef wanted a logo sequence that reflected that same sense of old world wonder. Inspiration for the logo was drawn from steamer trunk stickers and turn of the century ads for exotic destinations. The logo sequence flies through a digital rendering of the treasury at Petra, allowing the viewer to experience the same sense of wonderment as Yousef. See the logo sequence after the jump!
