    Welcome to Your Favorite Record, a podcast where I talk to the designer behind the album artwork. Hear the stories straight from the source of what it was like to create the art behind some of your favorite records.

    In this first episode, we sit down with Mike Joyce, the designer behind Fall Out Boy’s debut album Take This to Your Grave. An iconic record for Fall Out Boy fans and music fans alike. We talk the entire design process for the record, fonts used and why, the almost album cover options, the almost album names, and what it was like to work with the band at the beginning of their career.

    Huge thank you to Mike Joyce for taking the time to sit down and chat with me to chat about this pivotal record. You can find and support Mike at and at

    I created this podcast because I was inspired by album art at a very early age, in fact this record (TTTYG) specifically is the reason I turned to design and wanted to be a graphic designer who worked in the music industry. This is a subject near and dear to my heart as a fan and as someone who is genuinely curious on the meaning and inner workings of album artwork.
