How designers get influenced by music is an informative article about the combination of music and design. Eleven designers talk about their experiences and views on music among them like Alex Beltechi, Pete Harrison and Rik Ooestenbroek. It is totally worth to check out.
This time I also have some different views on the same topic. I’d love to discuss everything with you guys more, so just leave a comment. My question is:
“How does music inspire you and what music do you listen to, while designing?”
I love music second to I love art, sometimes even more, in my opinion music is the most amazing thing people can give to this world, it’s magical, inspirational, sentimental, healing…it’s everything.I always dreamed of being a musician, or a singer performing on the stage, I think it’s the most precious and desirable gift people can have, since I’m not good enough to do that, I transform my feelings while hearing the music to my artworks, hence it become a very special and inspiring process for me.Music can be art , and art can be music.
My favorite genre is rock, new wave, post punk, shoegaze, dreampop, downtempo…there are too many, my top musicians are The Cure ,The Flaming lips, Robin Guthrie…I’m also a chill-out radio fan, love listening to belowzero and anji bee’s chillcast.
“Music is an integral, interwoven, intangible yet indispensable part of my creative process. I tend to save listening to my favourite albums for times where I need to produce my best creative work – I will often watch movies when drumming out less inspired work, but find that my imagination really fires up when the tunes kick in. I have no set genre or band that I listen to when I create – I just listen to whatever album it is that I have on rotation and see where it takes me. Lately I’ve been listening to The XX, Led Zeppelin and Bloc Party – it’s made for some really wonderful creative sessions.”

I got one fresh, small project, where I needed small portfolio site for a friend. It got me thinking and lead to research what WordPress can offer to me, with its great CMS platform. I was a little bit surprised, because I got even better results than I expected- theres was a plenty of interesting portfolio, photo gallery themes, where homepage was static, but still you can tie together static with dynamic content and add blog as well. Maybe it’s nothing new or signifunt for most of you, but I wasn’t aware there is possible to get such theme so easily, where of course my friend could manually change it’s content without touching or learning any code knowledge.
It was commercial theme I tested, but since most of people look just for free stuff, I gave it a try and searched for free Portfolio, photo gallery type themes. Maybe results aren’t too bright, but those themes are completely free for using. Don’t worry, if you are searching for more quality and wider sortiment, I will follow up with Commercial Portfolio and Photo Gallery WordPress Theme article in next few days!
Viewport, a free WordPress theme created by Paul Bennett is focused around a clean and simple, content based layout. The aim is to grab the user’s attention and draw them straight into the content.

Gallery is a beautiful, free, gallery-style Thematic child theme for WordPress, designed by Christopher Wallace especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers. It is extremely flexible and can be used as a starting point for design galleries and portfolios.
