While Blue Note Records’ legendary artistic director Reid Miles is a design hero and huge inspiration to me, and likely many others, for his work creating a distinctive and long-lasting aesthetic that conveyed everything the record label its music were about, the design of these three albums below by A&M Records’ Brazilian recording legend Sergio Mendes are equally iconic. They convey the tropical flavor, Brazilian-ness, and overall ‘cool’ of the music on those LPs. I’m absolutely enamored by these album covers.
