What started as a small exercise in replicating Spotify's visual identity turned into a fun hobby of mine.
I'm a big proponent of listening to music while working, or really anytime of the day (check out the player module on this site to see what I'm listening right now). Like most people, I create playlists to house different genres, moods, or "musical snapshots," which is my fancy term for capturing what music I was listening to during a certain time period.
After creating my first few playlists on Spotify back in 2017, I noticed how beautifully crafted their playlist artwork was and I wanted to see if I could somehow replicate it with a bit of my own flair. It's been a couple of years since, and I'm still creating new playlists and corresponding covers every few months. I've learned a lot through the process, including new photo treatments, managing type layouts (especially with the names I give my playlists), and crazy color schemes that somehow just work.
Check out a collection of some of my favorite covers I have done so far:
