The purpose of Type Songs project is to point at great songs by illustrating them with their own words, in a poster frame. I started this project to combine my interest in digital media, especially typography, and my passion for music.
Quickly this work took another dimension, as I’m searching for the meaning of the lyrics, and stories around the artists, for each song. Most of the posters have hints to catch this, and I want them not to be too obvious, so that people have to pay more attention to the songs. Because music is the most important part of this project.
The following concern these artists, in order : Eels - Johnny Cash - Clap your hands say yeah - Morphine - The Chemical Brothers - Nirvana - Queen - The Stooges - Black Sabbath - Interpol - David Bowie - Radiohead - Supertramp - Ray Charles - Deftones
