Courthouse Rocks is a new music night held in the small Yorkshire town of Otley on the first week of every month. The night features up and coming acts usually only seen in cities around the UK. We were asked to develop the brand and an array of marketing material that could be used to sell tickets and get potential acts interested enough to play.
The idea for the logo came from the music and the venue - the graphical lines on sheet music and the bars on the cells of the old courthouse, now the venue. We developed an initial campaign idea based on the notion of seeing bands locally rather than having to travel miles - Rock Local. This idea is reinforced through the imagery - the town in days gone by and dynamic portraits of local characters.
