Nicholas Payton and Paytone Records
Grammy-winning artist Nicholas Payton does not play jazz. He plays Black American Music (#BAM). We’ve been working with him since he launched his own record label, Paytone Records, for which we did the logo and designed the second album, Sketches of Spain. The design came together remarkably quickly, and we mean remarkably: Nick approved it on the first go, and as his manager says, “Nick never approves of anything on the first go.” We’ve now designed two other albums for him, Numbers and Letters, and we can’t wait to hear the next one.
