Cover, interior card, and labels for a mixtape I send my girlfriend Kenzie for her birthday. The playlist can be listened to here (note: Soundcloud copyright policy means not all the tracks listed on the physical are available).
Since I’ve made one of these once or twice a year for a while now, I’ve started to see these tape covers as a space to experiment with new ways to present basically the same content: the volume number and a list of artists & songs. The small size typically prevents me from getting too wild with it, but Velvetyne’s Pilowlava, a display font with goofy weirdness baked right in, ended up feeling perfect for the job. Neue Machina, a personal favorite from Pangram Pangram, offers a more sensible (but still not devoid of personality) foil that’s better to actually read instead of just decorate.
