What role does music play in your day-to-day life as a creative?

In retrospect, music is a big reason why I got into design and photography. I always admired cover art and working with Vampire Weekend on an album cover is number one on my design bucket list! My relationship with music while I work really depends on the task. If I need to write or think more intentionally it becomes challenging, but if I need to get shit done, there’s no way I can meet a deadline without some pump-up tunes.

“Chiuso Per Ferie” is the signage in Italy you’ll see on business doors during the month of August. It means “Closed for Vacation”. Who works in August? Not Italians! It’s the month you take off to drive around the coast and go swimming. You move to the mountains and stay cool. No work. But I am in New York, so music that I’d blast driving around back home is as close as I get to feel like I am chiusa per ferie too!
