As CCEntertainment's prestige grew, becoming known for their high-concept tribute shows featuring top Australian artists, it became clear that there was in interest in the history that CCE represented and in the artists that perform in their shows.
From this the CCE Magazine was born.
A fortunate happenstance meant that we were able to acquire the rights to use previously unseen shots of the Rolling Stones by famed rock photographer Philip Morris, lifting the quality of magazine shots enormously.
We were contracted to produce and launch this unique Australian magazine. Feeling that most music-oriented magazines lacked the class of a reputable magazine, we used classic publications as our inspiration to produce a clean and prestigious look.
Part of the plan was always to produce the magazine online. We used the K2 content construction kit to produce a flexible and unique magazine site that caters to promoting the current features while still organising the content in an edition-based hierarchy. This type of organisational method is unique to online magazine conversions and one we think particularly suited to this type of content.

Our first work for CC Entertainment.
CCE approached us wanting a new look for their tribute show promotional materials. 'Epic' is the only word to describe the performance that CCE puts on. Not content to simply ape the sound of the bands they tribute, CCE attract the finest A-list vocalists in Australia backed by one of the most incredible instrumental ensembles seen in this country. Their shows pay homage to the originals, they make them their own while producing a tribute that's as close as you could get to the spirit of the original.
In that vein, we wanted to create a set of posters for each show that would be instantly identifiable as part of a set while simultaneously giving the impression of a poster you'd had on your wall since the 70's.
To that end, we created a poster series, of which this is the first.
Taking iconic imagery associated with Pink Floyd, we re-created the prism from scratch, created an aged paper texture and incorporated a dynamic shot of the lead guitarist, Joseph Calderazzo. We also used fonts designed to be reminiscent of that used on 'The Wall' album.
The end result was used in posters, standees and postcards.
