Sony Traces Its Company History Through Typographic Mural

Sony Traces Its Company History Through Typographic Mural

The music timeline created by designer Alex Fowkes in the company's London HQ shows its rich history and features nearly 1,000 artists.

Designer Alex Fowkes created the Sony Music Timeline, which celebrates 125 years of musical history in the company’s headquarters. The large-scale typography mural covers almost 150 square meters of wall space, with 54 columns measuring over 2 meters tall. The timeline features nearly 1,000 of Sony Music’s artists from 1887 to the present day and was created using CNC cut vinyl. It was commissioned by Emma Pike, VP industry relations, who said:

The brief was to bring the inspiration of our music into the heart of our building and make our office space live and breathe our incredible musical legacy. Alex’s beautiful graphics and illustrations do exactly that.
