Overview

Nashville is a gem. The music industry spans the world, but no place takes time to celebrate the songs and songwriters like Music City. Over the years, we’ve worked with numerous record labels and publishing companies to create awards that recognize the creators of audible art. That’s where this one comes into play.

In August, 2017, Peermusic celebrated a song written by their songwriter, Jaron Boyer. The song, performed by Cole Swindell and Dierks Bentley, is “Flatliner.” This award commemorates the song reaching number one on the Mediabase music chart for country music radio.

With the project, we were granted creative freedom to concept with the parameters that we used a provided photo of Swindell and Bentley performing the song live. With that, and the theme of the song, “Flatliner,” we chose to make it resemble a heart monitor screen. The colors and layout were both inspired by a common interface on modern monitors. The lines (going flat) on the left and information on the right. Above the song information is a custom, type header for the song title, formed from modifying the document font, Abside, to be a unique reflection of the modern and creativity behind the song itself.
