Pride Season: Be a Rainbow

I’ve had so many clouds, but I’ve had so many rainbows too. Be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud, and let me be a rainbow in yours. 🌈 Happy Pride 2018⁠ ⁠everyone.

Dr. Maya Angelou is always so inspirational (YouTube video – the rainbow):

Find Me On Apple Music

Whenever I’m designing, I’m listening to music. My music taste is very eclectic, so if you’re ever interested in what I’m listening to right now, you can find me on Apple Music! I’ve added 16 different playlists so far, and I’d recommend the ‘Felina’ & ‘Thirteen Reasons’ playlists to get you started! 🙂

Here’s my Apple Music link:

‘Pale Green Ghosts (and other true stories) – The Very Best Of John Grant’ Cover Art

The cover art for this project is one of my favourites to date. As I said in a previous post, I prefer to design my own cover art for any iTunes playlists I put together – and I have tons – rather than the bog-standard collage thumbnail automatically generated by iTunes. Playlists are now the mix tapes of my 80’s former self – it feels a little nostalgic putting them together, despite traditional casssette tapes now being so obsolete. I’m also including my chosen track listing for this cover. The fonts used this time were Ababil Script for John’s name with the secondary font being Old Style Small Caps. Apologies for the watermarks – I hate them but they’re unfortunately necessary.


Cover Art for ‘Texas – The Platinum Collection’

I prefer to design my own covers for any playlists I put together in iTunes. This one is dedicated to the best songs recorded by the Scottish band ‘Texas.’ It’s a very simple design but I liked how the title came out, resembling a shoulder tattoo. The main title font used is called Normande Bold, with increased character spacing’ this has also been used by Texas for their last 2 releases. The secondary title logo uses the fonts Haymaker and Monthoers Vintage, with the star coming from Microbrew ornaments.
