Music is a must when it comes to my workflow… and not just any music. For me, having the right tunes in the background results in productivity, inspiration and the occasional – yet necessary – dance break.
So, what does a graphic designer listen to while making his or her magic happen? It’s a great question that may not have the same answer depending on the day you ask or the designer being questioned. That being said, I’d love to share some of my personal favorites and a link to my always evolving playlist on Spotify if you’re interested in dancing along.
The songs on the playlist below I play a minimum of once a week. The list is a mix of easy listening tunes, indie and instrumental, but I threw in the occasional Motown song to break up the mix. It never hurts.
