What I Listened To Today typography exercises

Skill-sharpening exercise by mvajoshua. 

“Each day I’d pick out one song that stood out to me, then I’d set a timer for 12 minutes and design a type-only ‘record cover’ for that song. My goal going in to each one was to not have a clue of where to start or a concept to work toward so that I’d end up somewhere unexpected or un-ironically use ‘bad’ fonts. Typically I’d end up working for about 20 minutes and have 3–4 options.”
