I'm constantly listening to music, and every year I compile a list of my favourite releases. The last few years I've presented these lists on one-page websites to fuel my creative development. These pages are experimental with the aim of learning something new each time (and sharing the music I love).

2018's page was inspired by my vinyl collecting. Streaming will never compete with the feeling of picking out a vinyl from your collection and playing on your record player, so I attempted to bring some of that charm to the web with a modern presentation. 2018 In Music
Graphically my aim was to unify the varying album artworks using sample colours and a vinyl sleeve graphic as an overlay. On click, the record from the graphic flies out of the sleeve to become the player linked to the embedded Youtube videos.
In 2017 I decided to present the albums with ‘Design with Code’ as my main focus. The result is a one-page website where the main design features (colour schemes and presentation of the album artwork) are dictated by code. 2017 In Music
The generated colour schemes produced interesting and often satisfying aesthetic results, particularly when contrast colour combinations were used within the album artwork.
