Music Philosophy: a poster project

Posted by: admin In: Creative Review

Music Philosophy is a weekly project by designer Mico Toledo – who unites his love of music and typography, in the creation of illustrated song lyrics. Toledo takes lyrics from songs he enjoys listening to and produces an illustration that incorporates (as a general rule) a variety of typefaces.

The Music Philosophy website was launched five months ago and has since prompted a great response that Toledo wasn’t expecting: “I am pretty happy as I am able to spread the music joy and philosophy to thousands of people with my work.”

Here are a few examples of illustrations created for the project:

The past year has seen Toledo taking a masters degree at Central Saint Martins, with plans to return to his previous position as an Art Director for advertising agencies such as Leo Burnett in Lisbon, Portugal – where he has created award winning campaigns such as EPhemeral Museum for Diageo (which you can take a look at here) – whilst continuing his graphic design projects along the way.
