Thinkfarm

The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones never stop and nor, it appears, do we. Thinkfarm has been designing visuals and branding systems for half the time the Stones have been…. Rolling.

Over five decades, the Stones have shaped popular culture, often in their own image. We’ve designed visuals and branding systems for ten of the band’s record breaking tours and projects, including redesigns of the classic Tongue-and-Lips logo, two album sleeves, video projections, merchandise and posters.

In 2022, we’ve worked on the branding of ‘SIXTY’, their 60th anniversary project and European Tour. Along with a vivid new ‘cyberdellic’ version of the famous Tongue-and-Lips logo, created to evoke the future as much to the past, we contributed to the naming of the Stones’ SIXTY Tour and developed a complete set of integrated artworks as part of a comprehensive design system for the project. The design theme will extend beyond the normal promotional material that rolls out across all advertising and merchandise, to the look and feel of the stage set – as it tours multiple stadia and cities this summer.

In 2020, we worked on the branding of their US & Canadian Tour and a complete redesign of Steel Wheels for a special edition Live package, first recorded in Altantic City, New Jersey in 1989.

STONES TOUR '24 (2024)

When you think the party’s over, it’s only just begun!

Inspired by the storyline and vibe of Whole Wide World, one of the great new tracks from The Rolling Stones’ Hackney Diamonds album, we conceived, designed and produced a shiny, shattered, assembly of lyrics, quotes, band pics by Mark Selinger and a custom-written story by Paul Sexton that collages anecdotes from Stones US tours across the years, to create one multi-dimensional Stones Tour ’24 programme package.
