Clubbed – A Visual History Of Club Culture / Kickstarter

Thought it would be nice to share this one. Rather me write about it I thought I’d run the copy from Rick Banks from the project as it’s far more succinct. Below are the Hacienda spreads.

The UK is a tribal nation. Our clubs have had a look and strong identity from the days of one-off nights in seedy Soho basements through to the rigorously branded nightclubs of today. The right shoes for the right dancefloor, the correct clothes for dancing and how we present our club nights. The look is as important as the sound. It’s imprinted in our clubbing DNA.

The UK has given birth to some of the world’s most iconic nightclub and electronic music brands. Each club is so distinct, its unique identity, sound and community of music lovers stretches far beyond the UK.

‘Clubbed’ celebrates the best graphic design in UK clubs. The book will feature logos, posters, photography, tickets, menus, cover art, signage, lanyards, fonts and, yes, flyers from the last 35 years. The deluxe hardback will feature a dazzling collection of never-before-published materials and a specially commissioned editorial from Bill Brewster.
