Music Library: Digital Mixtape

Comments Off on Music Library: Digital Mixtape

We’re thrilled to have Christopher Samms guest mixing for us this month.


Christopher is a Freelance Graphic Designer living and working in Winnipeg. His designs are minimalist and striking, and impossible not to love! In just a few short year’s, Christopher has built up an impressive portfolio. He’s particularly sought after in the music industry, designing album art for bands such as Royal Canoe and posters for clients like local concert venue Union Sound Hall. Most notably, while working at Clark+Huot/Cocoon, Christopher was part of a small group that developed the creative concept and tagline ‘We Speak Music‘ for the 2014 Juno Awards, which will be held here in Winnipeg next month. The tagline so perfectly sums up the significance of music in our city’s culture.


Today’s playlist features lively rock and indie pop music. All with a strong beat. All pulled from Christopher’s personal record collection. He also designed this gorgeous cover art for us, so while you’re listening to this playlist, do yourself a favour and check out his online portfolio at


You can also follow Christopher on Tumblr at and on Instagram @christophersamms.
