When challenged to design a logo that captured the spirit and energy of West African dance company Afriky Lolo, SOLVM decided to base the scheme off a dramatic photo taken at a past performance.

While the shape of the image is intricate, representing it as a silhouette adds the simplicity necessary for an effective logo.

Afriky Lolo (African Star) is a powerful, moving West African dance company based in St. Louis. Solvm created a fresh website to help Afriky Lolo promote itself in a professional light. The goal was to illustrate the excitement of Afriky Lolo through a wealth of great photos, and craft the back-end of the site for a dance company’s needs.

Version 2

We made tons of functional updates to make the site more manageable. We also incorporated a lot of imagery and photography   that we acquired over the years.
