I’m pretty sure I’ve gushed about designers.mx before, right?? Anyway, if you haven’t heard about it, it’s a website that posts mixes created and designed by designers themselves! It’s my go-to for inspiration on a daily basis. Both the cover art and music are bound to get you going!

I know that all creatives are different in what they listen to, so I wanted to pull some of my favorites that are quite different. BE is a playlist that has a little bit of everything and is kind of like a roller coaster ride. It starts off slower, then picks up. And there’s a random 3-song instrumental break in there, too. Personas is one of my all time favorite mixes. I’m one of those designers who likes to work with more upbeat music. I don’t know, it just keeps up with my pace nicely. And finally, Lady Brave is a slower mix of songs. I have a feeling that the majority of creatives like to work to a more relaxed beat, so I knew I had to include this one. I like to use playlists like this on rainy / sleepy days. So what do you think? Anyone have any favorites?

* Side note : The cover for Be’s playlist, picture up top, is 100% awesome sauce. I love how the letters are intricately woven throughout the greenery. The designer could have slapped the type on top, but nope … paying attention to detail always wins. I dig it!

    This is such an awesome site! Thanks so much for sharing.

    And I agree, the detail of the BE cover is incredible. Have you ever thought about doing mini tutorials on your blog?? I know you didn’t design that cover but even some of the stuff in your re-create its we’re pretty awesome. I’d love to see you share some of your designer secrets.

      Hey! I’ve definitely thought about doing mini tutorials on the blog – or even starting e-courses, but it’s not something I’ll do in the immediate future with how busy I am. I think as the blog continues to grow, it’s definitely something I’d look to do within the year or so! And I’m sure when I do, I’ll be asking for suggestions. :) Thanks for asking!!

    THANK YOU! I am terrible at music and cannot wait to have a listen. And I’ve not added “awesome sauce” to my vocabulary.
    xo and happy monday, dear!
