High Rotation dove into the songs, stories and the images of the Brisbane music scene, exploring a world of musicians, labels, producers, venues and fans. Featuring highlights over the past 30 years, High Rotation, revealed a snapshot of how popular music in Brisbane exploded from the local scenes onto national and international stages.
Our brief for High Rotation primarily involved capturing the energy and bare-bones nature of music during the time period. While being nostalgic, the project had to engage a contemporary audience through excitement.
The direction for this project was split. For the exhibition, a finished, neon-based night-life masthead that alluded to urban signage. For the marketing, a rough, ad-hoc street press style brochure that was ubiquitous at the time.

"Designed for the people — totally Brisbane. The art direction and use of paper stock effectively create a nostalgic street rag feel but it feels up to date and fresh. Content is really cool and designed in an accessible, legible way."
