Hoshino USA/Ibanez, North Hollywood, California doing customs for the public ??

So I was wasting time surfing google images for Ibanez images, and stumbled onto this design website, whose client is Hoshino USA/Ibanez, North Hollywood, California..

"Project: Design California themed logo that affixes on the back or prints on the head stock of custom made instruments at the North Hollywood custom Shop."


http://digitalmediagraphics.com/proj...z-custom-shop/

Does this mean they are going to start doing customs and sell direct to public

Horrible logo :P

I guess this all depends on whether this was something they did last week, or something they did in 1994 when the company opened...

I'm highly skeptical that Ibanez was ever an actual client... and skeptical of this "agency" in general:

"Digital Media Graphics was founded in 1994 in Los Angeles, California and has help create and facilitate all kinds of awesome design, print, and marketing projects ever since."

But after 19 years in the industry, this is all they can write about themselves... and have a grammar error to boot?

I work in the design industry, and there are some real charlatans out there. Lots of red flags on this one.

Ahhh common man..... let me believe that I stumbled onto something cool :P

the logo looks like it was designed in 1994 :P

You forgot to add the actual design (not the proto):




Apparently, this company also does the "Plugged in" newsletter:
