33 years ago today an American Pop Culture icon passed away. Elvis Aaron Presley changed the course of popular music during the 1950’s and 1960’s. His thumbprint can be found on modern music genres ranging from country to pop. Drawing on all his musical inspirations which included country, gospel and blues, Elvis fused these styles together to first create the Rock-A-Billy sound and soon after influence Rock And Roll pioneers of the late 50’s and 60’s, including the Beatles who went on to refine Rock And Roll and modern music even further.
Today’s design is a shout out to The King. I chose simple imagery to convey my design. The simple image of a crown and mid century inspired colors and typography take us back to the days of young Elvis and the birth of Rock And Roll. That’s all for today! Hope you like. ~Sean
