“I would like you to analyse the following record sleeve ‘Revolver’ by the beatles and then produce a typogrpahic version with no illustrations or photographs.
Format: front album sleeve 12 x 12 inches
write down all of your observations/ information in a legible list which we will discuss in the day.
After listening to the track over and over again:I concluded that there where about 8 sounds that where repeated that I could hear. I created a timeline for this song and marked on the timeline when each sound appeared in the song. The results can be seen below. Hopefully you should be able to see a pattern created for the music
- The º green dots represent a big electronic type symbol sound.
- The smaller dots represent quieter/smaller symbol sounds – that are almost background
- The “/” represent a sort of wavery background repeating beat.
- [ – expo
- a – english voice
- Eszett (B shape) – german voice. Eszett are german characters which represent “ss” e.g schloss can also be written with an Eszett on the end instead of a double ss
- The ⊿ – triangle shape represents a swoshing sound that starts quite quiet and then gradually increases in pitch
- The W – represents a sound at 1:04 – 1:22 to me the sound looked like a repeating WWWWW shape. To me this sound makes the music and is important. Hence the box surrounding it to help make it stand out
The pink represents voice:
Please note: I’m not a musical buff!
I found this poster was a bit tooo busy and needed some breathing space, hence the above image.

I have decided to change song. to Kraftwerk’s expo 2000
each dot represents a second of the song. the song is 408 seconds long, there are 408 dots. The magenta dots represent a symbol type sound in the song.

I decided to choose mint royale: singing in the rain for my chosen song.
I wanted to represnt colour, fun, joy in my poster, as when I listened to the song these emotions I felt the song portrayed. I want to create a poster that will put a smile on their face.

I love the bright colours and pipes.
I’m singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin’
I’m happy again
I’m laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun’s in my heart
And I’m ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I’ve a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Singin’ in the rain
Dancin’ in the rain
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
I’m happy again!
I’m singin’ and dancin’ in the rain!
I’m dancin’ and singin’ in the rain…
Why am I smiling
And why do I sing?
Why does September
Seem sunny as spring?
Why do I get up
Each morning and start?
Happy and head up
With joy in my heart
Why is each new task
A trifle to do?
Because I am living
A life full of you.
Using only typographical elements create a poster using a piece of music.
Our next brief was to take the document and turn it into a A4 document. WE could use folds but only 3. As this is a leaflet it needs to be more micro than the poster which is more macro focused.
I started this project by deciding to apply the darkroom processes to type: expose, wash, fix etc. However with the 20 sec limit – I realised this could be quite tricky. So took one element: light. I experimented using adobe aftereffects to create some movies. I eventually decided to have my type move to waves. This led to incorporating sound. This took a lot os developing and research – but am happy with my end result, as the types outlines are soundwaves which change depending on the wavelength.
