We here at The Metal Wanderlust cannot thank him enough. An honour indeed! I started drawing being still a child and I rapidly developed interest for drawing letters inspired by Medieval times, Art Nouveau and Art Deco…. Some of the first bands I offered my services to were Morbid Death in pre-Enthroned from Belgium, Disgrace from Finland in …and a couple years later on, one of the most significant bands was Emperor when I offered them a logo in

Get started with Band Logo Maker today! Born in Belgium but currently living in the UK, you may be surprised to know that the now forty-something artist is actually a forestry engineer, having studied Biology and Forestry. He was 17 when he got a good look at the logos of King Diamond, Kreator, Venom and Possessed and leaned towards sketching stuff for the heavy metal world. During an interview, he mentioned that it takes him weeks to finish a design, depending on the number of revisions it has to undergo.
He admits that he can be quite meticulous and tedious himself. Logos for bands and musicians, he candidly says, take a bit more time as he tends to run on several changes during the course of the work. Szpajdel mentions that he is primarily inspired by nature whenever he tries to think of a design.
His unique creations gained him more clients. He never advertised, everything was just thanks to a kind word or two spoken about him by a satisfied customer. When Facebook took the whole marketing world by storm, he hopped on the bandwagon and increased his followers. Newspaper and magazine features also helped him land more designing gigs.
Truly, the world has more space for talented men such as Christophe Szpajdel. Perhaps what endears him to both clients and fans is his down-to-earth and candid nature which is very apparent during interviews. How Band Logo Maker Works.
