Sony Music Timeline

Celebrating 125 years of musical history and covering almost 150 square meters of wall space, London based designer, Alex Fawkes, has produced this awesome typographic wall for Sony’s Derry Street headquarters in London.

Comprised of 54, two meter tall panels of vinyl lettering, it features almost 1000 of the label’s artists from 1887 to the present day. From ACDC to Wham!

It fills a mezzanine walkway and is visible from the cafeteria beneath, reminding me of the CBS typographic wall (See ‘Gastrotypographicalassemblage’) by Lou Dorfsman and Herb Lubalin in the 1960s.
