I recently discovered this really nice personal project by Richard Chavez. I love custom type combined with music, and these are so well executed that I would actually prefer some of these to the actual album art for these records. I think the Kanye one is perfect — so much energy and chaos to "visually describe" the album using type instead of obscene imagery. Take a look at all of them; they are great! Really makes me want to do something like this.
I've never been able to separate graphic design and music. They both compliment and inspire one another so much that one cannot exist without the other. I think the common thread is creation (the act of creating). They only differ in their respective end products — one is visual and the other is auditory.
Anyways, the changing of seasons is always an inspiring time for me, especially Summer to Fall. So, in response to my friend's mixtape, I have compiled one myself based on my own interpretations of Autumn. I hope you enjoy it!
