Famous Charm is the uber-creative and multi-talented design duo behind the BARBARI brand and packaging. For this month’s Fine Tunes playlist, we asked them to pull together some music paired with their signature illustration flair under the theme of bloom, grow and rise.
FC: Our cover image is inspired by John Alcorn, a 60’s & 70’s illustrator known for his graphic design and children’s book illustrations. It felt very surreal, something we keep being pulled back to while in this self-distancing world we’ve been thrown into and thought it signified a unique way of interpreting bloom and expansion.
We had a great time collaborating on this playlist. We both put some of our recent loves together and sat next to each other while we arranged them for the perfect listening sequence. It was a nice moment for us.
Here is a poem, written by Rupi Kaur, that we thought was perfect for this time, for this season, for this playlist, for this art…
this is the recipe of life
said my mother
as she held me in her arms as I wept
think of those flowers you plant
in the garden each year
they will teach you
that people too
in order to bloom
