10 Inspiring Typography-Based Designs

Gabrielle Gosha

Typography presents an often-overlooked opportunity to convey more than the words themselves can express. Design choices like relative size, juxtaposition, alignment, and typeface can add enormous strength and efficacy to your message. Or, conversely, the wrong choices can create visual confusion and a fragmented, ineffective design.

Believe it or not, you can actually produce a strong, compelling design with little more than the typography itself. If you’re typography is large enough, carries an interesting design, and is manipulated in some engaging manner, you can actually forgo using any complementary visuals, which can ultimately give your design a cleaner look. If you don’t believe this is possible, then check out today’s showcase of great typographical use in both print and web design.
