Listen To This is a series of four connected talks that bring together musicians, writers and critics. Developed and presented by author Daryl Easlea and academic Andrew Branch and hosted by Metal Culture.
To publicise the event Phuse were asked to develop an identity and brand concept to be used across a number of different mediums. The final design can be seen below plus a number of alternatives that were also presented.
This chosen 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 has been produced initially as a die cut A5 flyer.
Also shown on the last slide is a discarded concept which came a close second.
