The marriage between art and music has always been a richly fabled romance. In the modern era, graphic designers have had a particular knack for fusing these two mediums by imbibing their personal passion for music into their work. Consider for instance Reid Miles typographic album covers for the jazz label Blue Note in the 1950s or Wes Wilson’s psychedelic concert posters for Bill Graham presents in the 1960s. Each designer’s individual taste helped signify the way we see music.
