What's up everyone! This is an entry of my monthly column for HearRVA where I'll highlight some of my favorite designs and design resources each month!
I wanted to start this column because visuals are such an important part of releasing and promoting music and can sometimes feel out of reach. These should work as both inspiration for people needing ideas and a celebration of designers doing great work. You can send cool designs my way or commission me for work via email or Twitter

Blog Author - Tyler Blankinship: What's up everybody! I work primarily as a freelance graphic designer focused on music work (album covers, concert flyers, merch, etc.). I've also got experience in concert planning, radio hosting, music management, and a wide array of miscellaneous music work that I've been able to get my hands on. As far as music taste goes I love a bit of everything, especially local Richmond, VA acts like Fly Anakin, Lucy Dacus, McKinley Dixon, and Benét. Some of my favorite outside acts that I've gotten to see perform in Richmond are Smino, Mac Miller, Robert Glasper, & Courtney Barnett. Supporting independent musicians, especially Virginians, is one of the most important things to me so joining HearRVA felt incredibly natural when I started living in Richmond full time this year.
