Marek Weber's Continental Tango Vinyl 1942
Type of Work
This vinyl record is designed for musical artist Marek Weber's album Continental Tango. This album from 1942 is instrumental Latin music and contains 8 different tracks. The eye catching design on the cover incorporates illustration, pattern, and dynamic typography. The structure of the stripes and the organic nature of the green form provide nice contrast and invite the viewer into the story of the album. The “T” in Tango is composed of an illustration of a man's face with a bandana around his neck and a hat on his head. This item is relevant and important for consideration in graphic design because it encapsulates latin folk music during the 1940's and continues its legacy in a tangible form. We can learn from its integration of type and illustration, and it brings a certain vibrancy and creativity to the canon.
