This project was to choose an existing band and design a tour book for them for an upcoming world tour. The book would include elements such as biographies, interviews, song lyrics, discography, and tour dates. The book would then be sold to fans at each of the venues played at.
The band that I chose was MGMT. The main goal of this project was to imagine what a visual representation of the bands music would look like, and then to design a book around that. MGMT’s music is like a psychedelic explosion of color, and the concept created was to communicate that though a visual feast of colorful geometry. Each page has a predominant color, and the aesthetic is bold and vibrant. The book is also reproduced in a very large format (13 inch by 38 inch spreads), so as to fully maximize the visual impact of each page’s colorful kaleidoscope.
