The importance of typography in design can’t be underestimated, said that before I guess. Typography is a key element of design and communicating a message and in some cases designers use typography in a way that makes it support the overall design or in some case becomes the design itself. In this article a large number of inspiring and beautiful Typographic designs have been put together for you. Hope you enjoy it!

Introduction

In this article you will find pure typo inspiration. In the first section I have put together a large compilation of designs that use Typographic elements to create images. The technique may be useful in some situations but I think is normally seen on posters and different types of printed ads. In the second section you’ll find Typographically overloaded websites. A smart and well aligned use of typography on websites can really make a difference and here is plenty of inspiration on how it can be done. Use index to jump if you want to start with the websites.

In this section you will find many designs where typography is either a dominating element or where typography is basically the design. You may think how can I use this? Well just take a look and see if anything inspires you.

Great images. I always think of Saul Bass & Carlson when I see text effects like these.
Textorizer is a great free tool to create a text image effects.

Wow, that’s a very nice collection. I love typography artwork – not websites , just artwork.

Can you point to some tutorials about typography artwork ? Here’s one :

Crazy and brilliant designs!

One question tough: the link for bbb (bread and butter) doesn\’t work and it looks very much like this project: http://www.behance.net/Gallery/Adobe/92748

can you give more details please?

@omg you’re right the link is broken. Can’t figure out why and I can’t find the image source. I also searched bbb logo on google image search and looked through 55 pages… no sign of it. Guess for now we have to stick to the image and see if another reader could help us out…
It is true that it looks like Stefan Lucuts Adobe project. May be the reason why it has been removed.
