Cool Typography Examples

There’s something about typography that makes me gravitate to it. The lettering and letter forms themselves have become an art form. if you look online, you’ll find thousands of examples of creative type and unique type designs. Cool typography examples are all around us, and I thought that I would share a few of my recent favorites in this post. You’ll see everything from computer generated type, to hand made, hand written, and even objects arranged to form letters. Let’s check out some cool typography examples that will make you want to create your own.

Bent Type

Obviously with German influence, this type bends around and creates a dimensional property that forces you to take the time to follow the contour.

The craftsmanship and the kill dimensional quality is what sets this work apart. I found this on Pinterest, and the link was broken. if you know where the original can be found, email me the link and I’ll update it here. it’s definitely worth a link to the original artist!

Stitched Visual Vibration

this example has a little bit of a story. it was hand stitched by the artist, and is titled “I could have done this on my Mac”. What caught my eye was the visual vibration that happens when the cyan, magenta, and yellow values are transposed with a degree a variation.

This took some time, but someone thought, “What if each bubble from bubble wrap was a pixel?” and made type from it. It looks like they injected food coloring into each bubble.
