Designers.mx

If you haven’t seen/heard of Designers.mx before, consider this your introduction. Designers.mx was started and run by graphic designer Blake Allen and web designer/developer Josh Sullivan, both based in Nashville, TN.

Here’s how they explain what this is all about:

Mixes created and designed, by designers. Designers.MX is about discovering new music. Music that drives our favorite designers, and allowing them to create a unique cover design for each of their individual playlists. A daily music and design masterpiece.

So each chosen designer picks ten songs, and designs album art for that mix. I have been listening and admiring these mixes and pieces of design since I found out about the site. A fantastic idea that keeps growing. Plus, if indie rock isn’t your thing, there are other types of music represented…but there is plenty of indie rock, from what I’ve listen to so far. I’m excited to watch this site and community grow. Music and design are two peas in a pod, which has been laid out over a 3/6 grid, using a sans serif typeface and utilizing white space.
