One of the things I love about starting a new project is the research phase, but it’s so easy to loose that open, relaxed time when you’re in a time crunch. On the other hand, I can get so caught up in my head that I loose the creative thread. So this afternoon, I sat on the floor and pulled out a bunch of records to look at center labels for inspiration. I’ve scanned 17 of them and put them up here.
They’re mostly the simple ones: one color ink, straightforward typography, and decidedly old fashioned, but that’s what fits with my project.
