  • Decca Records by Erik Nitsche

    Here are a few examples of album covers put out by Decca Records back in the 1950s designed by Erik Nitsche, showcasing a plethora of classical superstars and symphonies. Very interesting to see such abstract design avenues taken to represent the music, Decca and Nitsche were obviously striving for something unique in the genre. These…

  • ‘Moment of Fission’ by Robert Hodgin

    Renegade Processing guru Robert Hodgin is at it again, posting a few images from his latest coding tangent entitled Moment of Fission.
