RUTH ROWLAND: JOHN LENNON'S 70TH BIRTHDAY

August 31, 2010

Liverpool native Ruth Rowland was thrilled to be asked to work on the John Lennon “Gimme Some Truth” Campaign to commemorate his 70th birthday, which falls on October 9th.  The logo Ruth created for the campaign was inspired by the small calligraphic self portraits that often accompanied his signature.

Ruth was also asked to develop hand drawn lettering to match Lennon's own handwriting which would then be used across a series of eight digitally remastered studio albums and several newly-compiled titles.

Overseen by Yoko Ono and EMI Music, the campaign will launch on 4 October (5 October in North America) with the worldwide release of 'Double Fantasy', 1980’s GRAMMY Award winner for Album of the Year, presented in a new 'Stripped Down' version remixed and produced by Yoko Ono and Jack Douglas, co-producers of the original mix with John Lennon. (Cover illustration by Sean Ono Lennon)
