    I looked at your 50 great examples of extremely awesome typography for inspiration on a few web banners we are doing for the site. This collection is an excellent resource! The face typography were my favorite ones.

  2. Taylor says

    Amazing post. Love the creative use with the faces. Makes me feel depressed my typography skills aren’t this great.

  3. Reynolds says

    Being a lover of Milk, Milking by ~buioaloha really caught my eye. That is fantastic – would love to have seen the photoshoot for that one, thanks.

  4. Brummie says

    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.

    Thanks so much for these, some of them were truly incredible! My favorite was Burdened by ~dylanroscover. Thanks again for sharing!

    These examples of designing with type are inspiring! Thank you for sharing.

  7. says

    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.

  8. says

    Wow, awesome collection of typography!! I really like the style of the John Lennon and Martin Luther King Jr by Bencii!!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Nice compilation of typography. Some great example of different methods for achieving some excellent results.

    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.

    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?

    • Nelson Pacheco says

      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.
