Music is the Enemy

 

Albuquerque post-punk hardcore rock band.


Branding

The band is a concept of everything that is 'anti-band' esq. The band does not have a bio but a manifesto against music as a whole. Attesting that music is an addictive element in society that is used for monetary advancement. The band omits the names of its members so their innocence can be maintained. They also do not perform at shows, they hold live protests to integrate the masses with a message in the form of the enemy itself, music.

 

The logo is a scorpion with a disco ball on its tail.  The basic meaning is that music is killing you.


Merchandise

MITE has had a lot of different merchandise--Stickers, buttons, T shirts, etc. The product line and the management of it falls to me in the band. I make some designs, or commission an artist, and then bounce it around the other main creative force in the band to make a decision. When making a product line it's important to assesses who you are selling it to, and what options will satisfy.

Album Cover

MITE's debut release Mr. Murdoch... We're Ready For Our Target Audience. For this project I worked with an Ohio designer Chad Tibbits. He made the front cover, chose the background, and made the actual disc design. Concept and back text design was my contribution to this project.
