Leif Podhajsky has been one of our favorite art directors and artists for music album covers in recent years, having worked with Foals, Lykke Li, Tame Impala, Grimes, Mount Kimble, and Youth Lagoon amongst others. Leif does the new wave psychedelia very well, combining photography and collage in a way that seems both futuristic and vintage. Leif just did the packaging and cover design for Kelis' new LP, "Food," and the accompanying singles.

In the design world competition is a constant, you're always competing with your peers and even yourself to do better. The Type Fight took a more light hearted approach to competition by pitting designers against each other and letting you decide who is best.
