Set the Record Straight

Inspired by how vintage encyclopedia graphics achieve the maximum visual impact with deceptively simple and minimalist layouts, artist Gene Rogovitz created his stark "info-graphic" series as an homage to these bygone books and well-known objects. His LP print is doubly nostalgic as it also captures the excitement the artist felt when he received his first turntable from his father at age 13. At a time before the CD and light years before the MP3, the way to spin the hits of the day was on an LP. Like an artifact displayed in a museum, Rogovitz memorializes this covetable piece of retro recording in his punchy print that is filled with facts about the LP's first appearance and the history of the design. With timeless graphic appeal and a slick aesthetic, this print will hit home with your favorite music aficionado or vinyl collector. Designed and printed on Long Island, New York.

Gene Rogovitz studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where he received his degree in Graphic Design. He went on to receive his Masters in Art Education from CW Post, and is now a Technology teacher at West Babylon High School teaching Graphic Communications.

His vision is to capture the essence of the ocean and its many components, inspired by the variety of salt-aged goodness that lives and thrives in the sea. With over 25 years spent surfing—both locally on Long Island and in many locations worldwide—he draws from this major influence in his life.

      Print perfectly highlights music area in the living room. Excellent communication throughout the process.

          This is a Valentine's Day gift for a loved one who is a record collector. He absolutely loved it! It really is a beautifully designed graphic with great information about the LP. I bought it framed and it looks really great. I was very happy with the quality and even more happy it was such a well received gift.
