For a recent project I was set a brief for creating a few letters based upon any song of my choosing. My husband loves his old music, whether it’s Creedence, Led Zeppelin, Muddy Waters or whatever and the one evening while he was doing his own work he happened to listen to Rocket Man by Elton John.

As soon as I heard this song I had to listen to it again a couple times and this inspired me to created not just a few letters but an entire alphabet based upon this Rocket Man theme.

If you’ve read my About Me page, you’ll be aware at the time of this post going live I have a six month old daughter called Amelia. Amelia is still way too young to read or write but I really hope one day I can teach Amelia to read the alphabet using an alphabet created by myself.

The first picture below is the entire alphabet (do click on it if you wish to view a larger image) and underneath are some individual letters. Hope you like.

This is a rocket control panel from 70s and you can see the lyrics on the buttons and different part of control panel. It was created using Adbobe Illustrator. One of my friends think this looks likes some kind of fun, kiddies games console. I quite like this feedback, what do you think?
