U2 Fan Stories identity

U2 Fan Stories identity

This graphic, inspired by U2’s iconography and typography from the 1990s, was commissioned by Scott Calhoun, director of the U2 Conference, for a new project, U2 Fan Stories, which will culminate in a book and a film. This work appears on the project’s website and social media outlets, and was used in the film proposal for “This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now: Finding U2’s Fans,” which has been endorsed by Steve Averill (U2’s longtime graphic designer), Dave Fanning (Irish rock journalist, DJ and music critic), Neil McCormick (chief music critic for the Daily Telegraph), and Niall Stokes (award-winning editor of the Ireland music and political magazine Hot Press since 1977)—all closely involved with U2’s career and fan base, and all of whom have agreed to appear in the film. They will also be interviewed for the book, which—once a publisher has committed to this portion of the project—will be another creative design project in this series. Development involved collaboration with Scott Calhoun and developing familiarity with the proposed works.
