Design Milk

Graphic designer Lawrence Azerrad, a native of Los Angeles, grew up drawing pictures and fighting the inferiority complex that comes with being a “normal” in the city of stars. Since then he’s designed iconic album covers like Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, won a Grammy for the Voyager Golden Record: 40th Anniversary Edition box set, and authored & designed a book, Supersonic, about the fabulous style of Concorde. Turns out having his head in the clouds, playing amongst the stars, is right where he belongs. Listen:

Thank You... We really wouldn't be here without you.
2018 Grammy Award for Best Boxed Set/Special Package

It was a journey that started well over 40 years ago, that has spanned over 13.5 billion miles, and was sparked by the imagination that reflects the best of humanity. The Golden Record attached to the Voyager space craft are the only human made objects ever to leave our Solar System. They are still traveling at about 35,000 miles per hour, and scientists at JPL are still in touch with them. The gold plated records attached to each of the two Voyager probes contain a message from our civilization to others who may find them, and to us. A message that in looking at the music of humanity, our languages, our cultures, and our natural world, we can see our ideal selves. With Ozma Records, Tim Daly and David Pescovitz, we worked to honor the legacy and vision of the original project in the book and boxed set that we created.

We are extremely honored to receive the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Boxed Set/Special Package.
