RapCaviar Day 1 Club – An interactive experience and outdoor campaign for day 1 fans.


With an audience of over 13 million people across the globe, RapCaviar has been instrumental in the success of some of hip-hop’s hottest tracks. Since its inception, RapCaviar has proven to be an indisputable and influential force in the hip hop industry, and fans worldwide have come to rely on the curated playlist to discover new artists as well as hear the hottest hits from their favorite artists. The digital experience is accompanied by a social campaign as well as an out of home campaign in New York City, Atlanta, Philly, Toronto – featuring over 20 artists including Drake, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby, Young M.A, Tierra Whack and many more. Artists are featured with their own photography with no treatment in order to allow themselves to be fully expressed the way they would like to be. The design and branding is created by Spotify’s In-House team and is an expansion out of the core RapCaviar identity that was created a few years back, also in-house at Spotify. The identity that features sharp edges paired with striking lines has been taken from flat 2D lettering and brought to life by creating 3D elements that live as background textures throughout the experience. As you go through the experience the black metallic texture paves the way until the user finds out their Day 1 status of an artist that reveals one of three textures showing off the users fandom level, either Gold, Platinum or Diamond. In order to bring the experience to life, the 3D elements are animated throughout the experience. They react to the user's movement and transition seamlessly between the different status levels. In combination with the stark visuals we feature previews of the tracks as well as a bold sound design to create the right atmosphere. Two “Day 1 Club” logos were created for the project; one hero logo and one secondary horizontal. These were paired up together with Spotify Circular Bold.
