Reimagined Punk Rock Posters in Swiss Modernist Style

Mike Joyce’s Swished poster series combines two of my great passions, amazing music and inspired design.

Record Store Day 2014 Wisdom

“It’s no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently or if your favorite films wouldn’t even speak to each other if they met at a party.”
