We’ve seen the future and it looks pretty cool.
Dance music and graphic design have a pretty rich history together. For instance, what would Warp be without The Designers Republic’s iconic sleeve work? Imagery has a way of making the sonic experience come to life. And now, in 2016, it seems that a new crop of forward-thinking young designers have come to prominence, and they’re imagining a rich visual future for the music of the present and future. These are designers like NON’s Chino Amobi, NAAFI’s Alberto Bustamante (whose work is featured above), Studio Remote’s Adam Rogers, Grafiti Tapes’ Luca Lozano and other individualistically minded folks.
