In 2007, I was commissioned to create the logo for songwriter Monte Montgomery, also known as one of the best guitar players that ever existed, and I decided to create a special typography using his guitar strings.
I have to say, it wasn’t easy. The strings are not exactly like working with normal wire, iron or copper. Guitar strings are much harder to bend.
I liked what emerged from this experiment, because I started creating typography and later a composition with the name of the artist using his own strings.
In this page, I also show a guitar-strings-typography dedicated to Johnny Cash.
To create these artworks I only use used, broken, durty! strings because it’s a kind of way to preserve all the feelings.
And more important: if you love something you don’t throw it away.
