Harkening the zine & mixtape era

The brand references popular culture of the 80s and 90s to spark nostalgia and add a sense of tangibility to each weekly release. An atmospheric collage technique is employed throughout to reference artists featured in each playlist.


Playing wherever they're listening

Streaming natively on both Apple Music and Spotify, playlists are an easy addition to  listeners' music rituals, while a standalone site provides in-depth info as well as a comprehensive archive.


Cult following

By maximizing shareability across platforms and pairing each release with unique standout artwork, Ultimate Fresh garnered a dedicated following of music addicts.
