What influence does music have in your life as a creative?:

Music has always played a central role in my and my studios life. We play music all day everyday. Music was at the heart of why I got into graphic design in the first place. It is hard to overstate its importance.

Tell us about your playlist:

I have always had an eclectic taste in music, which this playlist reflects to a small degree (given its limitations of only being an hour long/20 tracks). I could have playlists on Folk, Soul, Rock, Classical, Disco, Indie, Punk, Rock n Roll, Jazz, Blues etc. etc.
