Naghma O Sher

A series of typographic album covers that explores the relationship between typography and music. It brings together type and a song by revealing the essence of each in one cohesive space.

I explored the visual nuances and moods of Ghazals (Urdu poetry) through typographic explorations of the hand lettered Urdu script to reflect the tenor of music through typography.

GHAZAL 1: Naghma O Sher
A love song that evokes moods of seduction, beauty and romance.

GHAZAL 2: Tere Khushboo Mein Basay Khat
Poetry about a man reminiscing about the memories he shared with his ex-lover.

GHAZAL 3: Hazaaron Khwahishen Aisi
Poetry about the fading in and out of memories of the past.
