2 #002 - Alex Steinweiss (part 1)

Beginning the discovery of the most influential music artwork designers, from this article onwards, I decided to make a start from the man who started all this, Alex Steinweiss. Almost 100 years after his birth, and 3 years after his death (he reached the age of 94!) most people, who are involved in this industry, ignore his existence. So let's

Added by Constantine Fountos: “Concluding with the music formats and the most important information about them.

4 #001 - Cassettes, compact discs and the digital era

For decades the need for listening recorded music, was almost exclusively, through a record player. Apart from the widespread radio device, it was the only way to listen music, especially music of personal preference and choice. There was even a portable record player for cars! True story! Recommended for smooth roads only... As a result of this limited option, many

5 Artist Remakes Iconic Album Covers as Seen From the Other Side

Remember that scene in Ghostbusters 2 when Bill Murray wonders whether or not the Statue of Liberty is naked under her toga? Well, this is the album-cover equivalent of that.

10 The 10 most mind-bending vinyl zoetropes

The brief introduction to the best zoetrope, phenakistoscope and animated picture discs. The technology may have been popularised in 19th century, but judging by the online reaction to Sculpture's new zoetrope vinyl which surfaced earlier this week, you'd be mistaken for thinking moving images are going to be the next big thing. One website even went so far as to

11 These vinyl records hide secret music videos

Audio-visual group Sculpture creates vinyl picture records that appear to animate when viewed unders the correct conditions, and its latest is gorgeous. When you start "Plastic Infinite" spinning, the images on the record just look like a blur. Apply a strobing light to the record, or film it at 25fps with a high shutter speed, and the record is transformed

Added by Constantine Fountos: “Design has met music for over 100 years. Our generation grew up with records, cassettes, cd's and iPod. Graphic designers serve the music industry at it's best!

12 Hello & welcome :)
