Beastie Boys' Tribute
When fellow designer Nitzan Hermon heard the sad news about the passing of Adam Yacuh (MCA) from the Beastie Boys he decided to pay a typographic tribute to MCA. The result was a blog aptly named Cause You Can't, You Won't And You Don't Stop
Sending a tweet out to the design community resulted in a huge response from designers around the world, each wanting to pay their respect by submitting their own piece of unique artwork. Each entry is a Beastie Boys lyric, presented a different designer's way, making each line a discrete work of art.
As a huge Beastie Boys fan I decided to submit my own piece using lyrics from my favourite track 'Intergalactic'. My idea was to screen print the artwork onto a 12" record sleeve in neon orange ink and produce them as a limited edition print of x 200 pieces, all profits going towards Cancer Research, unfortunately after seeking permission from EMI to use the lyrics my request was declined. EMI - I'm still waiting for your call!
