Since the dawn of highschool there’ve been attempts by people enflamed by the art that affects them to show their love for it. Often this sort of thing disappears. It’s written on a desk, or now blogged and re-blogged, and it fades out. Of course the source, the music, that stays strong. Even the weakest song is still a song, a recording of that song or an orally passed down tradition, songs are rare to be fading. But then there’s the rarity: the strong second step. Designer Mico Toledo has taken that step, and done it in a way that sticks. For that extra amount of time sticking that makes it into a lovely design masterpiece, or set of masterpieces that will ring true into the future.
This project is called “Music Philosophy” and it is a rather excellent clash of brilliantly written lyrics and typography. Design of this caliber is often reserved for paying customers, but Toledo does this project as a hobby. The closest this project has come to the physical plane is some printed versions of the posters and a painting project on the wall of a friend’s apartment. Fab!
OH also there’s a t-shirt store.

BONUS: there’s another Cargo-Collective-esque collection site for these that I believe was made by Toledo too!
