Rock Band Icons (by Tata & Friends)

Spanish graphic design studio Tata & Friends has illustrated ‘Rock Band Icons’, a series of posters which delineate the names of renowned bands using straightforward and literal graphics. A hot yellow background describes each canvas, with black lines marking the pictographic representations. Some motifs portray motion — like the two circumventing arrows wrapping around the image of a rock, indicating ‘The Rolling Stones’; others narrate the musician’s name with a stacked series of static graphics. Take a look at the collection of posters to see if you can name the band based on the pictograms, before you read the name.
