DesignersMX is a great website that invites designers to share a 10-track mix of the music they enjoy, and the songs that inspire their creativity. I had the opportunity to do some mixes and came up with these!
The first mix I designed was really well received and I had a few requests asking for another! So I whipped up some new artwork and pulled together 10 songs that had been inspiring me and created the second mix: “Sailing To The Sun”.
My third mix was called ‘Create’. A mix designed to give you a creativity boost! This mix consisted of 10 tracks picked from my ‘creativity’ playlist. Songs that stretch my mind a bit by being musically interesting and different. One of the things that helps me to be creative is listening to music written by creative musicians.
My fourth mix, ‘Woods’, was a bit of a follow-up to my first mix. I revisited some of my favourites here rather than trying to pick out different artists every time. I also tried a different illustration style to my normal work with this one.
My first mix was called ‘Mountains’ with some nice melodic indie-folk stuff. It’s the kind of music I’m loving at the moment and I often play this kind of stuff while I’m working. You can hear my mix and loads of other great mixes on Designers.MX.
