BEST INSTAGRAM | WILL ECKE'S JAZZ RECORD COLLECTION
For me, Will Ecke's Instagram feed's a lot like a static electricity shock. I'm scrolling through photos of desert landscapes, vintage trucks, beards and palm trees - suddenly, like a quick jolt, there's saturated color, graphic elements and type - the kind of graphic design found only on jazz album jacket covers. Modern and cool, minimal, yet deep. I don't know where this style originates, or how it became the standard, but over a half-century later, it still resonates, still tells a ton about what's carved into the record inside.
Will's one-half of the respected design duo, Albert & Marie. His appreciation for and willingness to share this example of the (mostly) 3-element design style makes @willecke a must. Go now.
