Song Illustration Project

Personal Project

My interpretation of songs through illustrative posters

Background

The two main passions in my life are design and music. I decided to create a project that combines these two by choosing songs that have given me strong imagery over the years from countless listens.

I am eager to learn and this project allows me to explore different illustration techniques, styles and layouts. But most importantly – have fun by playing around with the creativity, meaning and interpretation.

Brief

Portray how you visually see a selection of songs by producing a poster that can be put up on a fans bedroom wall.

Thoughts and Reflection

This is a fantastic project that I am still undertaking. More posters will be added soon.

I loved creating the imagery to the songs, whether the theme stayed similar to the artist’s idea or whether it took a completely different turn.
