What role does music play in your day-to-day life as a creative?
In my youth, I was obsessed with vinyl, tapes and CD artwork. This was one of the reasons that pushed me to become a graphic designer. I’ve always loved creating playlists, I started with tapes and I still do them with modern tools. Contemporary music platforms give us a great chance to find new music and I always work with a good soundtrack in the studio… but I still love to buy CDs and vinyl.
