I’ve only just joined the wonderful world of Designers MX. If you’ve never heard of this here’s a little bit about it, Mixes created and designed, by designers. Designers.MX is about discovering new music. Music that drives our favorite designers, and allowing them to create a unique cover design for each of their individual playlists. A daily music and design masterpiece.
It’s a great way to discover new music and be inspired! Below are a few of my favourite covers, I’m working on my mix now… definitely keen to introduce some great kiwi tunes!

Thank you Amy and Vanessa for introducing me to this!

Well I’m a day late with Font Friday this week but better late than never right?! Today I have a beautiful font crafted by talented (Melbourne based!) designer Josip Kelava. A little bit about the font from the designer, Metropolis comes from the industrial years of the 1950′s where skyscrapers were born. Greatly inspired by the double line work of Twin by Mark El-Khatib, I used the double line method on HTF Champion Featherweight as a template to create a new typeface. The result is a bold, pompous typeface with a stolidly calm disposition. 

If you would like this awesome font all you need to do is head over to Josip’s behance page and click on the download link. Thanks Josip!
