We were recently asked by Craig Atkinson and Grace Bond (of Sea Design and Bond & Coyne respectively) to contribute to their project The Heart Index. We were one of a number of design groups and illustrators asked to ‘visually interpret the heart’ in a medium of our choosing. You can see our heartfelt, musically honest submission above. We were also asked to write this short rationale to accompany our contribution:
For those of a certain age, the truest way to express the feelings of ones heart was via the medium of the mix tape or cassette compilation. These almost obsolete oblongs of brittle plastic and magnetic tape were once the repositories of heartfelt feeling the world over. Two sides and 90 minutes to reveal your musical heartbeat. Here’s ours, with love.
You can buy the resulting – and very beautiful – book via The Heart Index website.
