Basic description of the project:
Rolling Stone. The unattainable bible of music journalism was coming to India. So IS IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE THE ICONIC LOOK FAMILIAR? AND STILL BE ICONIC? The refrain came from the heartland of the Indian cultural pot pourri. BATIK, KANTHA, MADHUBANI & ZARDOZI - some of the oldest surviving traditional art forms were chosen to recast iconic Rolling Stone covers as posters in their new likeness. The Hard Rock Cafe chain, jam-packed nightclubs and hardcore music haunts were chosen as the venues for the blast off. And slowly, Rolling Stone opened its soul to India.
