I had decided that my project was going to based on lyrics from a rap song because rap is one of my favourite genres of music. Before I decided on the lyrics, I wanted to research some graphic rap design to get some inspiration. I had looked at different types of graphic design related to rap/hip-hop culture. I also researched typography rap lyrics on Pinterest and Google. Some examples of typography and album covers are shown below.
I then decided which song I was going to pull lyrics from. I chose the song FRANCHISE by Travis Scott.
Redesigned after feedback:
I had changed the font and included more lyrics. I implemented some of the icons in between the lyrics. I also added some colour and changed some font sizes to make some words stand out from the rest (words that are more emphasised in the song).
Redesign after feedback part 2:
For this one I made the icons smaller and created a boarder around the lyrics so that the content wasn’t as close to the edge. It also makes it look more organised.
