The Wanton Bishops are a band from Lebanon with the soul and sound of America’s Deep South. While their story begins singing blues and rock in Beirut, they recently embarked on the trip of lifetime to the US where their inspiration was born. Red Bull Music documented their journey of musical discovery in the film Walk It Home, and A Color Bright was asked to create a printed publication.
This project was definitely a collaboration without borders, kicking off with a cross-continental team: photographer Balazs Gardi in Los Angeles, writer Jane Lerner in New York, Red Bull’s constantly globe-trotting Culture Marketing team, and myself in Berlin. We later added illustrator Ngaio Parr in Sydney, because apparently we didn’t feel there were enough time zones involved. My role included the publication design, art direction and management of the project.
