    What an amazing art! I never thought that I could actually like this, however right now I can’t get my eyes off to this exhibit. I think I’m starting to love typography too. I can’t believe you can do so many things and much more with only the use of words.

    There’s some cool designs in there, but ‘extremely awesome’ is a bit strong title. Quite inspiring list though.

    The John Lennon piece looks good, I just wish you could see the letters more clearly. Now it looks like there’s scribbled brush strokes in it as well which kind of kills the great idea.

    Buio milk looks very professional, though I read it as ‘bujo’ first. It’s probably the most complicated one in this list. I also like the Conceptual Art and 99%.

    Thanks for sharing.

      One to two days easy. I remember creating the Joker with just dots, no lines. It took FOREVER but in the end it looked great and was worth the time.

      Great post.

    These designs are amazing – sometimes I really wonder how long it takes for a designer to come up with awesome art like this? A couple of days?

    Some of these are nice. But too many of them are little more than predictable software manipulation of type as an element with little regard for aesthetics, kerning, composition or any basic elements of what makes a piece of design or illustration good. Artifically condensing sans serif type? Never a good idea.
