What you listen to can set the tone for your whole day. And as a designer, you have to make sure you’re priming yourself for creativity.

So this week, we asked a few of our favorite designers to recommend a song they love listening to while at work. Check out the individual contributors and their picks, and listen to the entire playlist at the bottom—it’s a designer-curated mixtape of creativity-boosting tracks.
