There are best of lists for everything.
No matter how specific or broad a topic is, there will be a best of list of it. There are millions of websites and blogs posting best of lists. I do the same in my music blog. Every december µ sique posts a list with the best records of the year. µ sique, my music blog, is one of those.
Every year I put a lot of time creating something special. A one-of-a-kind list. I think not only about the records that make the list itself, but also about the design behind the list.
I am very lucky to have a (very good) designer as a girlfriend. We spend many weeks deciding what’s the best design for the list. We would start with a main design theme, and then develop different cases and variations considering the records’ artworks.
With many best of lists around, the design of my list becomes very important; it’s what makes it unique.
So if you haven’t checked it out, now it’s a perfect time to catch up with last year’s best music.
I’ve only watched a couple movies from the ‘Best Picture’ category. I think Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is fantastic, and Iñarritu’s “Birdman” has a lot of merit for being risky. ↩
