As a music and design enthusiast, I undertook a self-initiated project to design a playlist cover for Spotify. The project involved brainstorming and researching various design concepts, exploring color schemes and typography, and creating a final design that resonates with the mood and vibe of the playlist.

My passion for music played a crucial role in this project, as I believe that music has the power to connect people from different walks of life. It inspires emotions, brings back memories, and serves as a form of therapy for many. As a result, I wanted to create a design that captures the essence of the playlist and creates a visual representation of the music.
