Solar Midnite Music Publishing Presented By: Sacha Matarran
Brand NameBehind The Name Solar Midnite is originally the song title of a hip-hop song released by Lupe Fiasco in 2002 that was recorded solely for the intent of appearing in the Twilight Movie. Solar Midnite Music Publishing is in no way afﬁliated with Lupe Fiasco, and because song titles are not classiﬁed as copyrighted content, we are within our rights to use the name. By deﬁnition Solar Midnight is that time opposite of solar noon, or 12:00am - the start or end of day, depending on how it is perceived. We chose this name because we are striving to be the opposite of major publishing companies, and focusing mainly on independent DIY artists and opportunities deemed “too small” by major publishers.
We are concerned that using a hip-hop song title as thecompany name might lead musicians to believe that we cateronly to the hip-hop genre which is untrue.“Solar Midnite Music Publishing” is protectable under theUSPTO.gov, with no registered trademarks bearing anysimilarities.A domain search on GoDaddy.com reveals that bothsolarmidnite.com & solarmidnitepub.com are available.‘Solar Midnite’ is an arbitrary name, because while they are realwords, they are unrelated to the music publishing industry incontext.
Competitor LogoEMI EMI is the music publishing industry market share leader. The EMI logo employs a horizontal shape, the ideal shape for a logotype. The logo is simple, highlighting only the words and no symbols. The logo uses three of the ﬁve basic colors - red, green and orange. The logo begins in red, drawing you in.

It also has the company’s tagline underneath it.
Solar Midnite LogoBoth logos presented are simple and appealing to the eye. In designing our companylogo we are looking to essentially create a horizontal wordmark logo, similar to that of‘Audimated’ that would incorporate a sun (for solar) as the letter ‘o’ in solar and abroken vinyl record as part of the letter ‘d’ in midnite. The font would be a sans-serifbased font, ideally in bold print, because they look modern and are legible. Underneaththe brand name the words ‘music publishing’ would be inscribed in a smaller font size.Below is an extremely rough draft of what we have in mind. We would like a morecartoonish text feel to the symbols, with the font alternating font color depending on thecolors of the vinyl record (as seen below).
