Hip Hop Type: Pop Star Typography Portraits Created with Their Song Lyrics

Typography portraits might not be that surprised for you. While below portraits have something specious, these singer portraits are created with their song lyrics. Sean Williams, the designer, photographer, and art director is the person who is behind these conceptual designs. Entitled Hip Hop Type, Williams took the lyrics from popular songs by each subject, including Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Harry Styles, and Kanye West. With the clever use of negative space, Williams warped, curved, and re-sized the letters to fit perfectly together, forming instantly recognizable faces.
