I'm low key proud of how my remix collection looks these days lol :) I'm a graphic designer by day so I know the importance of branding, but I'm also a compulsive creator who gets get carried away with new ideas every day so I find it hard to stick to one theme. Good branding is actually restrictive in a way, which almost feels counterintuitive because as an artist you don't want to box yourself in. I've always broken my own rules when it comes to my own branding, but I think I've finally settled on something I can live with now and its feeling pretty cohesive.
