Today we’re very proud of Roberto Rosolin and Jon Cook, our current and former art directors and two of the artists featuring in ‘Clubbed: a visual history of UK club culture’, a new book compiled by British designer Rick Banks.
Covering the last four decades of UK club culture, the new book from Banks focusses on the graphic design that defined some of the country’s most beloved dance music institutions, including Haçienda, Gatecrasher, Ministry of Sound, Plastic People, and our now-defunct sister venue matter.
The book promises to feature a number of different aspects of each club’s visual identity, with logos, posters, photography, tickets, menus, cover art, signage, lanyards and flyers all included. Legendary DJ and writer Bill Brewster has also stepped in to offer a specially commissioned editorial.
For the last eight years, our in-house art director Roberto Rosolin has shaped every element of fabric’s visual design, from our sought-after flyer prints, to every album cover on our long-running record label.
Rick Banks is currently looking for supporters interested in funding or pre-ordering a copy of the book - more information is available on the video below and via the project’s Kickstarter page.
