Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

We were shocked and saddened by the untimely passing of Tom Petty, whose music has soundtracked my life personally for many years. I saw him with the Heartbreakers playing the Brighton Dome in about 1975, and they left an indelible impression on me. In more recent years Mojo, became one of my favourite albums.
Stylorouge were commissioned to produce official merchandise for Tom, for The Heartbreakers’ only UK 2017 appearance, at London’s Hyde Park on Saturday 9th July. We were delighted to have been given the opportunity to work for him.
The band headlined the last concert of the summer’s British Summertime Season and to commemorate this rare outing they required some bespoke designs to sell at the gig itself and online. Shown here are the selected typographic t-shirt design and an unused proposal for a souvenir gig poster featuring the illustration skills of Pete Lloyd.
We have lost yet another contemporary musician who added colour to our sometimes grey lives. RIP Tom Petty.
