In case you didn’t notice, the symbol that rocketed to fame with one of Dance Music’s most prolific duos Justice…is also the symbol of one of the world’s biggest religions. If you’ve ever asked yourself why in the world they wanted to pull that off, you’ll get your answer in this new interview they did with Stoney Roads. Xavier De Rosnay and Gaspard Augé’s decision ended up being a great one, and De Rosnay talked extensively about their resolve to use the symbol for their own brand:
“When we were making the record sleeve, we noticed that the ‘T’ was the center letter of ‘Justice’, and that it could be replaced by a cross. We really liked heavy-metal and rock style logo design, and we wanted to design the Justice logo in a similar way. We kept using it in all our artworks, and it just never left. It’s incredible when you think about it because it’s obviously not our logo. It’s Jesus Christ’s logo. It’s kind of crazy, the way we managed to take this universal sign and own it a certain manner.”
Their plan was an unlikely success, and it shows in the way their shows inspire large crowds. What other artists do you think could pull something like this off? Tweet us @GlobalDanceElec with your thoughts.
