Flying at full mast: Hot Flag

by Bottle Rocket

Failing isn’t so bad if you can do it brilliantly.

During Rocket Science 2014, Team Hot Flag accomplished just that and won the “Brilliant Failure” prize at our awards presentation.

Led by art director Simon Stipp, Hot Flag came together to form an impromptu jam band (with a tongue-in-cheek reference to punk band Black Flag).

Hot Flag’s aesthetic was based on the classic American hot dog.

“We wanted to create a band along with a fun app that played its music. What we’re really after is stardom, however,” Stipp said.

“According to Hot Flag the purpose should be to experiment, have fun and not take yourself too seriously,” Stipp said.
