Mays Entertainment is a multi-Emmy winning, full-service film and video production company. We specialize in high-end films, documentary, reality TV, outdoor programming, commercials, music videos and web video production. Matt Mays is a writer, producer and director of hundreds of hours of television, film and video for broadcast, web and private outlets.
The "culture" of Mays Entertainment is youngish, dorky-hip, no-bullshit and competent. We were once inspired, now we're more interested in getting the job done in a timely and profitable fashion.
We've been at this for a while and have an extremely varied background. Modern, simple, yet slightly quirky design is something we lean towards almost always. No silly stuff. Our current logo sucks and we know it. But hey, it was free. Our current website has work samples but please do not hold its design against us. We're redoing it, too.
This company reaches out to everything from corporate and health care clients to MTV. Our logo, challenging as it may be, needs to communicate that we're a solid, super-competent bunch of peeps who, again, have been at this for a while and have worked out any need to do something silly or witty with their design at this point. We want to have the Coke, Starbucks or American Airlines logo for video companies
Make it classic. Make it last forever.
In the past we've always had black, white and some silver. New colors (two to three, max) would be great... please try to avoid red. (oranges are fine)
The only text needed is "Mays Entertainment." That's it. It'd be swell if the "mays" part was bigger text than "entertainment" as we've got to put this on our door and business cards. As for the subsequent design, see the "tell us about yourself" the "target audience" ramblings and the note below and knock yourselves out.
NOTE: We totally hate our current logo. PLEASE DO NOT use anything that says "hey, I'm a film and video guy" in the design. No film strips, no camera clip art, no "splashes of lame creative paints." or whatever. I've attached the current one for your reference and enthusiastic chiding.
