Heineken Campaign Looks to “Refresh Your Music”

Le Cube director Ralph Karam channels graphic styles from comic books to 60s psychedelia in this exuberant series of spots celebrating the diversity of modern music scenes for Heineken thru BBH Singapore.

Ralph Karam: “In terms of art direction, we took inspiration from different cartoons and comic book styles, including Christy Marx, Ed Piskor, and Sean Murphy. We even snuck in our own take on Sean Murphy’s most classic work.

“We applied visual styles that represented the musical genres that were portrayed. For jazz, we went with a crisp black-and-white color scheme and stylized linework. For hard rock, we incorporated the psychedelic Fillmore-posters style.

“Just like the challenges posed when remixing different musical genres, the most challenging aspect for us was how to establish harmony while including so many different art styles. Luckily, we could count on an incredibly versatile team of illustrators to make each style unique, while maintaining harmony across the board.”
