Lyric Zine

Designed for my research on visual music, this zine is about ten songs that have impacted the post-modern world. They also happen to be some of my favourite songs. This is an attempt to create an engagement by interpreting each of these songs into unique visuals, specially designed for each song.


Through different pop icons and new music, these songs conveyed new stories and feelings to us. Different colour combinations are created around the mood that the song created on repeated listening.

This was done during a book design course at the university and I challenged myself to use only one typeface and only vector graphics to execute this 80-page zine. By using one typeface, I wanted to bring out the mood of the song solely through visuals and colours, and didn't want to depend too much on typography to create the impact I desired.
