This design concept was inspired by the album cover artwork of 'The Best of Blur' created by artist Julian Opie. Blur are one of the bands being covered in the series of talks so the connection here was relevant to the project. Instead of the four members of Blur we have four artists also discussed in the talks; Wilko Johnson, David Bowie, Pete Townshend and Jackie Wilson. The flyer is design to resemble an old vinyl single with the record half removed from the cover, the Listen To This logo is shown in the middle of the record. This was the design chosen by the client and has been produced initially as a die cut A5 flyer.
This design was inspired the small band badges that have been popular for decades. The front cover below left has a different badge for each artist or band discussed in the talks. The Listen To This logo is also in the style of a badge.
This design plays with the typography of a number of famous album and single covers to produce an effective flyer. The typefaces have been carried through to the back cover create a logo.
Reminiscent of scrapbook collages created in our teenage years this design brings together images of all the artists featured in the talks.
