I’ve always loved the album art for Childish Gambino Awaken, My Love. The cool blue headpiece and rolled-back eyes, it’s so eye-catching and that for me is what makes great artwork, being able to grab your attention, amongst hundreds of other covers. The album bangs too, which definitely helps.
CAMPAIGN OF 2020
The best creative campaign this year has been Dermot Kennedy. In all honesty, I’ve been so engulfed with my own artists’ campaign, that I haven’t really been following too many others that closely, but I’m a huge Dermot Kennedy fan and thought the live stream from the Natural History Museum was a really cool concept.
VIDEO OF THE YEAR
For me the most creative and original music video of the year is Drake Laugh Now, Cry Later. The Nike athlete cameos and 1 of 1 concept Mercedes Maybach, only Drake could make that happen.
I wish I’d designed the artist logo for Odd Future. The pink doughnuts!
The most recent brand collab that caught my eye was outside of music, but Nike X Colin Kaepernick was sick! The close-up headshot with the caption “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything!” So good from them and rings so true in 2020
