As a design intern with the country’s premier conservationists of folk and world music, Smithsonian Folkways, I had the privilege of designing the packaging and liner notes for a collection of Bahamian music, a genre called Rake N Scrape. Drawing inspiration from the propulsive rhythmic qualities of the music’s saw, drum, and accordion, mixed with colors of the Bahamian flag, I created a design that captures the raw, fun spirit of the music and its people.
