Music Meets Web3

The Brief

Velvet Badger were commissioned to develop the brand and devise an innovative Web3 strategy to pave the way for Dancing Seahorse to lead a cultural revolution through music.

The brand had to provide holders with access to VIP concerts and experiences, powered by NFTs and exclusive unique content, alongside the levels of ownership and transparency that are fundamental to Web3 communities.

Bold & Moving

Strategy

We developed a framework for the brand to reflect the emotion and core drivers of the offering, mindful of the dual passions of the Web3 music audience: sophistication and transparency.

Focusing on inspiration and aspiration provided the vehicle for a brand tone and framework that epitomised the passion and dedication of music fans, with the promise of exclusivity that anchored the unique sense of value within the offering.

Brand Design

The identity and visual behaviours of the brand needed to capture the bold nature of the offering. A carefully crafted palette of striking colours and contrasts was developed to enhance emotive imagery, infused with a feeling of constant motion to reflect the restless feelings of excitement and possibilities.

We developed a comprehensive set of guidelines that ensured the feeling of luxurious sophistication was always retained, but had the flexibility to be applied across realms and platforms.

The brand was conceived to evolve in line with the offering, to have a life of its own through community application and leadership from key artists, while ensuring that any expression always epitomised Dancing Seahorse and their mission to evolve music for artists and fans together.
