First Ladies of Disco is inspired by author/speaker/host James Arena's tribute book "First Ladies of Disco: 32 Stars Discuss the Era and Their Singing Careers," a best seller in the United States, Canada and Europe.
Evelyn "Champagne" King, Linda Clifford, and Martha Wash are three singers who have fueled dance hits for more than 30 years. Some of their individual hits include "Shame", "If My Friends Could See Me", and "It's Raining Men". Now, coming together to form First Ladies of Disco, their manager, James Washington, approached me to design the visual brand, working with photography from the incredible Mike Ruiz.
A wordmark was developed that aligned with the overall tone of the brand - classy, sophisticated, and beautiful. The project has continued with me designing their website and the CD packaging for their debut single, "Show Some Love". That being said, 2015 is sure to be the year of First Ladies of Disco!
