I'm looking for a delicate balance between the hipster design aesthetic with a heavy dose of the 70's funk styling. It's a challenge!
But, I recommend that you start with the google image search links below and do a lot of research into the two aesthetics and blend the then into a thoughtful composition driven by a strong design thesis.

70's Funk Style
CodeStax (or Code Stax) is inspired by the 60's record label Stax Records.
Here's a link to a google image search for Stax Records:
The images below capture the essence of our brand identity... feel free to pick a warm, vintage color palette.
NOTE: We are moving away from any concepts with an Afro incorporated. We got a lot of cool concepts that we really liked, but decided to move in a different direction for our brand.
Additionally, we like concepts with the clean hipster lines, or the incredibly detailed badges/shields (See attachment for "Stax O' Wax example). And, include the 70's funk in the typography (ensure the font is easily readable) and color scheme.
