Member Mix | Chris Valdez

May 9, 2014 / By Joe Ross

Member Mix is back with a great new playlist supplied by Chris Valdez, Strategy & Creative Director at Primer Grey, including tracks by everyone from Patti Smith to M83 to Yo La Tengo. Check it out below.

He says, “This is only half the story, but basically, I think sometimes it’s good to be reminded that everything isn’t “awesome” all the time. We don’t always get to talk about that much, but it’s a significant portion of the human experience. And an important part of what makes for strong design is a good understanding of the human experience. I guess that’s where I was coming from for this playlist (and now that I think about it, it’s a sentiment that connects pretty well to each of the things I decided to show here). I’ll try to keep up with updating the playlist for those who choose to follow along.”

Give it a listen:
