Midweek Inspiration – Music

Have you ever been asked to do some types for… music? I’m talking about the word itself here. Because the truth is that this particular one carries the sweet burden of sound that needs to be turned into visuals. You have to admit that it can be quite a challenge, although probably not as hard as setting types TO music. But let’s not slip into surrealism, and stick to collecting some inspiration for creating types that ring more than just a bell.

Probably the most common association people make is between funky fonts and music, but there are infinite possibilities. The examples below should give you a good idea of what imagination can do for those who have design skills and a good ear for music.

Let’s see, because music does have a special way of creeping up on a designer’s mind.
Enjoy!
