Josh Jams Identity

Josh Jams is a Chicago-based DJ specializing in house and club music. As the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt on nightlife, many performers and musicians used their down-time to reinvent and evolve. As the world moves into a new era, Josh Jams wanted a new logo and brand identity system that moves away from the dark, gritty club aesthetic and into maximalist technicolor cartoon joy.
