Music and design go hand in hand—that’s evident on Dribbble. We love seeing shots for concert posters, band merchandise, and album packaging. With the vinyl resurgence, designers have been sharing beautifully designed vinyl records and packaging. Jamie McCue recently designed album artwork for Silent Season, which included a Limited 12” blue vinyl record. Here’s what he had to say about the process:

“My process for designing a record is rooted in connecting with the emotion and vibe of the music itself. For me, going to a record shop buying a piece of vinyl, holding it, reading the liner notes, looking at the pictures, even the smell of the vinyl is all part of the process. Playing a record is a multi-sensory activity, so the touch and feel of the packaging and quality of the vinyl is as important as the music itself. Much like any design process it's about understanding the context of which the music will be played and listened in.”
