Behind the Logo
The concept behind the CaliStar logo begins with a symbol that combines both a diamond-like star and a beautiful tear. While CaliStar shines with brilliant splendor, much like a rare diamond or a luminous star, her radiant strength comes from within. The single tear in the logo honors the depth that lies within her soul and the beauty that lies beneath the surface.
Within the artwork bounds, the starry tear is depicted as a beacon of hope, inspiring all who catch a glimpse of it to make a wish and find the faith needed to attain new heights. In stylizing the logo, the font and colors were carefully crafted to highlight the multi-faceted dimensions of CaliStar, who is simultaneously edgy and effeminate, formidable and relatable, imaginative and well-grounded. The CaliStar logo, much like the artist herself, was designed to inspire others, even through the tears, to create beauty, both with their art and with their lives.
