Century Media 30 years anniversary logo

I am deeply honored to present you the 30th anniversary logo I created for the almighty record label Century Media. Many of you will think that my excitement is based on the huge size of the client, but in my case is a way deeper connection. From mid 90’s this label was present in my house through their amazing releases, releases which formed me as a metal head, together with others coming from other honorable labels at that time. And I need to confess that because here in the East was very difficult to find original items, we created a cult for record labels, a different type of respect.
