Welcome To The Jungle Punk

‘Welcome to the jungle punk you’re gonna die’. That memorable Benny Goodman melody. Along with Benny Goodman, portraits of  Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday and Anona Winn were commissioned for a promotioanl print series for boutique printers Francis Anthony.
Francis Anthony was established in 1946 by Leonard Hibbs specifically to print a range of jazz music publications and the companies history was drawn on by design agency Guild Of Sage & Smith as they redeveloped the Francis Anthony brand.
The concept for the series was to offer a sense of the history and tradition of the company whilst contrasting this with an awareness of current print needs, trends, and the machinery to back it up.

The portraits of the four jazz musicians from the bygone age were to be printed on a traditional paper stock and overlayed with type as a subtle gloss varnish. The gloss varnish would be tinted in 2 differnt colours, lifting it from the aged sepia tones of the portraits. The copy would quote modern song lyrics contrasting the imagery, flashing to life as the tinted varnish hits a light source.
