How To Create Hip-Hop Logos

No other music genre has been as transformative and influential as hip-hop. While it started small in a neighborhood in New York in the 1970s, it has since become a global phenomenon. 

Hip-hop culture comprises social commentary through rap, rhythmic beats, and creative expression through graffiti art. Want to embody these elements in your branding? Here are some tips on how to design your own hip-hop or street logo

  1. Choose dynamic illustrations

Hip-hop is all about expressing yourself. Feel free to go outside the box and let your creative spirit run wild by using bold and dynamic illustrations in your logo. Use symbols and icons associated with hip-hop, such as boombox, turntable, and speakers. 

No need to go minimal. The bolder, the better. You can also design your characters such as a colorful girl skateboarding, an incredible rapper in a hoodie, or a breakdancer wearing gold chains.

  1. Use graffiti-inspired elements

Graffiti is in hip-hop’s core. 

Use expressive typography that reflects this. These can be bold, blocky letters or fonts that mimic a spray paint or marker pen. Some examples of fonts are Graffonti, El&Font Bubble, A Dripping Marker, and Don Graffiti. 

Graffiti logos can also contain paint splatters, paint splashes, caps, skulls, masks, and the X-eyed smiley face. 

Steve Aoki uses this style for his branding. You can see it and other logos in our famous DJ logos article. 

  1. Pair with the right colors

Colors can make or break your logo design. Use a color that embodies the vibe that you want to portray.

Black and white can make you look cool and mysterious. Meanwhile, a deep red can make you look bold and confident. You can also use neon and bright colors for a more urban and street-inspired look. 

Hip-Hop Logo Design Examples

Let’s get this party going by looking at hip and stylish logo designs you can use as inspiration. Some of the designs below are customizable templates that you can easily edit in our logo maker tool. 

Character Logos

A graphic look is a definer of hip-hop culture, and nothing says that more than a colorful character or mascot in your logo. Use cool skateboarders, hip rappers, basketball players, funky b-boyers, or skull mascots in your design.
