Only Connection

  • Jake Naparstek

In collaboration with: Tommy Mandry, Vanessa Keller & Ronaldas Slikas Only Connection typographically celebrates the ethos of rave culture in response to a brief set by Google & HMTC for D&AD New Blood. Only Connection focuses on the 3 benefits of raving. 1) Human connection 2) Disconnection from the everyday 3) Dance chemicals - Serotonin, Dopamine & Endorphins Outcomes consist of a 12” vinyl sleeve along with a set of posters. As an additional touchpoint, a VJ animation was created to be played at a modern electronic music event, displaying a message which relates back to the early days of raving.
