Describe the brief from the client
Create a print campaign for the Rolling Stone magazine that is like rock 'n' roll music itself: loud and outstanding.

Describe the challenges and key objectives

The challenge was to transfer the strength of rock 'n' roll music into another medium (print) and have each print page look as bold and strong as rock 'n' roll.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The campaign melts together countless illustrations and photography to create visual explosions that are as loud and as colourful as rock 'n' roll.
Just as the headlines of the ads suggest: they do advise us boldly to add a little bit more rock 'n' roll into our sometimes boring lives.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market

The ads ran in newspapers and on the internet with strong reactions to the visual language, offering a massive amount of details upon a second look.

The Print Ad titled FOLK was done by Oliver Voss advertising agency for Rolling Stone Magazine in Germany. It was released in Mar 2012.
