Curating a vinyl collection may be seen as more of a pastime than a necessity for current music enthusiasts, but the appeal of vinyl album art is undeniable. Eye-catching graphics and text manipulation become priorities when the physical album is larger than one’s head.
In this spirit of vinyl art, Designer Rodrigo Maia reimagines recent albums in the style of old jazz covers for his Tumblr, New Records, Old Covers. Bright colors in minimal palettes, large shapes and plays on text orientation give a new look to familiar records, including, Jeff Buckley’s “Grace” and Explosion in The Sky’s “All of a Sudden, I Miss Everyone.”
