Song Graphics

08/22/2011 | By Shaun Laakso

Paris based illustrator Nour Tohme knows her classics: massive tunes by dinosaurs of rock like Led Zeppelin, Jefferson Airplane and The Stones; dancefloor fillers by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson and the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. Being a huge music-fan, she also loves 2000s instant classics by Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Amy Winehouse.

With her conceptual poster project “Draw me a song”, Nour Tohme illustrates the lyrics of her favourite songs. Every artwork of the Lebanese-French designer represents the words of an iconic song through typography and digital illustration.
