2016 Albums of the Year

2016 Albums of the Year


Designer, Writer, & Editor


March 2017


2016 Albums of the Year magazine is a personal project I started after being introduced to the 10x album artwork project created by designers Richard Perez and Eric R. Mortensen.

Their project consists of a different group of visual designers each year that countdown their top ten albums of the year with reimagined album artwork.

I decided to reimagine my own top ten albums. After creating each art piece, I compiled them into a magazine and added more content to have it serve as a bigger, collective piece.

I plan to repeat this project at the end of the next few years.
