Decorated Playlists

Intro­duc­ing Dec­o­rated Playlists, a web­site I have put together, ded­i­cated to the close rela­tion­ship between music & design. I have always enjoyed shar­ing my knowl­edge of music, but now that I no longer DJ I need a new out­let for this.

I have pre­vi­ously dab­bled with the com­bi­na­tion of design and mixtapes/playlists on the Bones Brigade Dj’s site and also in a trib­ute I made to Serge Gains­bourg, but I wanted to take it a step fur­ther. The final piece of the jig­saw came to me after I con­tributed a mix to the fab­u­lous designers.mx project. You can think of each playlist as an art-directed blog post, but with music instead of words.

I will be adding new lists as and when the mood takes me, each one will have it’s own unique feel and I intend to do a lot of exper­i­ment­ing with CSS and HTML5, hurrah.
