Christopher Comstock, better known as Marshmello, became popular in 2015 as a musician, producer, and DJ. Though he himself has neither confirmed nor disputed his identity under that name, in the fall of 2017 Forbes released information that it was Christopher Comstock.

Meaning and history

Marshmello was born on May 19, 1992, in Philadelphia, USA. Nothing is known about the artist’s early biography. The musician does not talk about his personal life, keeping his image mysterious.

At the beginning of his career, Marshmello created a page on SoundCloud, where he started posting remixes of tracks by popular artists. The artist’s debut single was the song Wavez. Later he published tracks Keep it Mello and Summer, which were recognized by musicians and listeners. This inspired the guy to create the album Joytime, which was released under his own label. The record reached number 5 on the U.S. dance chart.

Marshmello decided to emphasize its personality with an original mask in the form of a bucket with a smile painted on it. The bucket depicts the favorite treat of American children – marshmallows.

What is Marshmello?
Marshmello is the name of a mysterious musician, who prefers to hide his face under a funny oversized mask with two large rounded black crosses instead of the eyes. In 2017, Forbes magazine opened the identity of Marshmello, naming him Christopher Comstock.

In terms of visual identity, since the very beginning of his career, Marshmello stays loyal to the image he created — a mysterious figure with a huge white bucket on his head and a drawn black smile on it, with two “fluffy” black crosses replacing the eyes. This mask has also become the most recognizable part of the musician’s logo.

2015 – Today

Marshmello Logo

The Marshmello logo depicts a cartoonish creature, formed by two oversized letters “M” in a bubbly sans-serif typeface. The two uppercase characters are connected in the middle, with the black bucket and the recognizable white mask drawn on it. This makes the letters look like the elongated hands and stable thick legs of the figure. The black creature is placed above the uppercase lettering with the stage name of the musician, written in the same style as the “M”s, but placed in a straight line.

Font and color
