watch as i lose all ability to do things again, regret all of my life decisions so far and how nobody gives the slightest of fucks about any of it.
Adam Vass reblogs something you’ve posted, even though it was originally his post - I don’t even care. He is such a talented designer.
Listening to this split that I bought recently and it is excellent. With it being a US import it cost me £7 which is quite a lot for a 7” record but it’s well worth it. Raein’s side is my favorite stuff they’ve done, especially ‘Love and Death’. Loma just destroy as per with the eratic, intense hardcore they are renowned for. Pleased.
Heres a design I made for No Sleep Records. Going to be on some tees coming up soon I believe. Really stoked on the 2 color print, then got weird with some overprint faux 3d shit and overdone textures on the top version. Hope you like it!
so many things about these pieces that I just love. the coffee mug, in keeping with the original no sleep logo/concept, to me, almost looks like a love heart which is representative of not only a love of music but also the amount of love independent labels like no sleep have for the work they do and of course, the love they receive from their customers and supporters. the typefaces just ooze class and the order of the shaping, to me, represents efficiency which is something small businesses, especially independent labels, strive for. The red pattern is the vibrant and fun part of the work NS do and brings the design to life. It’s a reminder that in between all the mail order and office work and stuff that at the core of the label is a colourful and engaging passion for music. Then looking at both pieces together and the order of the bottom one and the disorder of the top - I guess that contrast is exemplary of the range of music NS releases and also how it’s a modern label that is holding onto a lot of traditional values. Maybe i’m just looking a little too much into it but I honestly think this is just a really cool logo.

I’ve had a cool couple of days. My computer has been upgraded, my new camera body arrived, I got some new records and the weather has been pretty sweet on the whole. However I am disparing over the fact that three weeks tomorrow I’m putting on a gig in a 300 capacity venue and not a single ticket has been sold. Waaaaaaah.
