It seemed natural when given the opportunity to brand a music tour of my choice to focus on my favorite contemporary band, The Maccabees. It was an excuse to research the indie-pop quintet of which I already sustain a healthy obsession, and design for a group I greatly admire. No pressure. Of course my personal passion stunted my very first step: determining the tour name. To gather some distance and expand design possibilies beyond my own subjectivity, I chose to base the tour on the lesser-known b-side: Hearts that Strangle.

Stemming from the vulnerability exuded by this song, I used the juxtaposition of love and violence in my aesthetic research. Ultimately I arrived at two over arching concepts that directed my design: intimate tangling and defacing sentimental imagery. The former was the main inspiration for my logo type solution and the later was interpreted in several mediums from ink stains to paper tears.
