Bringing back the physical ritual of music listening

ROLE(S): CONCEPT, BRANDING, ART DIRECTION & DESIGN


RPM was a concept I created for Music Hack Day London 2013.   
It learns the personal connections we all make between our music and our life.

Bringing back the physicality of music listening:

RPM aims to slow things down and bring back the ritual of selecting, playing and falling in love with the music we listen to.

Re-designing a favourite album

As part of the prototype, I asked friends and colleagues to re-imagine their favourite album or to make a playlist. 12" chalkboard slates were made for them to create their artwork on and these were then tagged using the RPM Player.

Creating the brand


Creating the brand


Creating a brand

Although RPM was originally conceived for a 24 hour Hack Day, I wanted to create something that could eventually develop into something more. A brand, User Interface and informative print material was created in the run-up to the Hack Day.

The logo took inspiration from the very same things that inspired the concept itself; Found diagrams of how vinyl records actually work, as well as typography found on early prints of Decca 12” records.
