You are more authentic the more you resemble what you’ve dreamed of being.
Christopher Lee Lyons [Fhonik®] specializes in graphic design + creative/art direction for the music industry.
Fhonik® was born from a lifelong love of both music + design. Since growing up in the (rad) 80s, I’ve had an obsession with both. I can still vividly recall blissfully rushing home from the music store, equally excited to flip through the liner notes of my newest music purchase as I was to listen to it. For me, the marriage of music + design = pure bliss; a fantastical (kick-ass) place where audio and visuals symbiotically work together. I cannot hear or see one without the other. So you can imagine the idea of combining music + design into a career had been a lifelong dream of mine. In 2008, that dream became a reality with the birth of Fhonik,® my design alias committed to creating engaging, well-thought-out and beautifully crafted art to compliment and enhance your music.
It’s this passion for music design that drives me and it’s this passion that will give your music the visual identity it craves. Let me show you what bliss can do for your music.

THE REVIEWS ARE IN
I came in contact with Christopher Lee Lyons while working on an independent artist driven project. Christopher’s dedication to giving us what we needed creatively as well as his willingness to see it thru to the end was impressive. Since then, we have worked together on a number of projects and the work is always stellar. People who I recommend Christopher to always end up thanking me. You will too.

Christopher Lee Lyons is amazing. I’ve been dealing with graphic designers for years, regarding fliers, websites, cover art, and press kits, and Christopher is the easiest and most professional I’ve ever worked with. Not to mention the design... amazingly creative yet still appealing to the general eye. Christopher comes HIGHLY recommended.
