Hello! Thank you so much for visiting our little corner of the internet ♡
Draw Me a Song was born in 2010 when illustrator Nour Tohme was a college student, doodling song lyrics in the margins of her notebooks while daydreaming in class. When she started posting her illustrations on a blog, Draw Me a Song quickly gathered an enthusiastic following from music and art lovers around the world, who greatly contributed to the development of the project and its transformation into a business. Draw Me a Song went on to win the Deutsche Bank Creative Award, was selected as a semi-finalist in the MIT Business Plan Competition, and won a grant and mentorship from the PACEIM program.
Draw Me a Song explores the intersection between music, pop culture, visual arts and feminine empowerment, through original illustrations on a variety of products, including art prints, home decor, accessories and stationery. Over the years, Draw Me a Song grew from a little Etsy store run by one woman in her Parisian apartment, to a brand carried by over 18 distributors in the USA, Germany, England, France, Spain, Hong Kong and the Middle East. Draw Me a Song has been featured in more than 50 publications and websites, including The Independent, Glamour, Refinery29, and Buzzfeed.
With time, something unexpected and delightful happened: our pieces took on a social dimension we had not anticipated, and began to be used as symbols of feminine empowerment. Mothers and fathers buy the prints for their little girls, women offer them as gifts to each other and display them in their homes as empowering reminders, and people share the artworks as messages to uplift young girls and women around the world. We have been fortunate enough to collaborate with several creative companies to expand our artwork into other media and uses, including a card game, puzzle, coloring and children's books, to inspire many more young girls and women.
Our world is full of magic, bright colors, inspiring and whimsical characters, and delicate hand-lettered typography. Our goal is to create beautiful products that bring joy, beauty and inspiration to all those who connect with them. All our products are thoughtfully and lovingly made by Nour, whose deepest purpose is to create intentional art that touches people’s emotions, delights, inspires and empowers them.
