The mixes are presented as podcasts and can be downloaded from the website. Each mix is accompanied by the beautiful covers that you see here.

When coming across their website via Colorcubic I just had to share. Each of these mixes has an eclectic group of tracks for an all around great sound. So without further ado, get ready to sit down and enjoy the wonderful listening pleasures brought to us courtesy of Nueva Forma. If you enjoy the mixes, leave a comment to let us know.

Project Thirty Three Album Covers

July 21st, 2010







These album covers are from a collection scanned and archived by Jive Time Records, a Seattle based store specializing in used vinyl. The fact that designers could get away with such simple designs just blows me away. It seems to me that it’s getting harder and harder to get away with designing so simply.

Take Ivy Series Three Mix

March 17th, 2010

Take Ivy is Brian Gossett’s hottest new series of mixes. This mix, Series Four, is comprised of twenty-one different classical and contemporary tracks mixed together to make the experience feel seamless.

Not only is this mix amazing, but did you see the art? I was immediately drawn into it based purely on the detail of typography and the textures. The inspiration behind the Take Ivy series came from a group of photographs (also the ones used in the art) by T. Hayashida.
