I was looking at the credits of PJ Harvey’s latest record and saw many of the same names I’ve seen for years. My old music journo brain began to wonder how often she worked with the same people. Then my design brain kicked in and I began to wonder, what that would look like?
I made a spreadsheet of all the albums, who contributed and their role, including engineers, producers and designers.
my visual starting point was a circular graph Each circle represents an album. If a person appeared on an album, their slot in the circle would be coloured in and their contribution was placed inside.
