50+ Beautiful Examples of Typography and Mosaic Portraits

Typography refers to the arrangement of text on a page, and appears in some form or another in all instances of written communication. Depending on the purpose, typography can be used for optimum readability, impact, or an artistic statement. Some graphic designers work totally in text, and study typography extensively while they perfect their art. Quality typography can make a big difference in communications, because it can impact the way the reader sees and feels about the topic being discussed.

At the most basic, typography is a combination of font, size, spacing, and color. Typography is an integral part of any design. Therefore, an attractive web design or logo is incomplete without the adequate typography. In today’s article i have collected some artworks which demonstrate the use of typography in a different manner. Here are the Beautiful examples of typographic and mosaic which I hope will inspire you. Enjoy!
