19 Unusual Examples of Typographical Artwork

Tara Hornor

Typography is a wonderful part of design and art, turning simple words into stunning compositions. Some of the best typography artists know that choosing the right font and format are just as important as the design itself, whether the font is constructed only for a particular design or the font is Helvetica, whether the design is made of sand or if it is printed on a poster. The following typographical works of art include everything from architecture to digital art to sculptures. Browse through for some inspiration in your own typography and let us know which one is your favorite.

    For anyone who’s missed it, ‘World by Julian Beever’ is actually drawn on the pavement. What a brilliant grasp of perspective!

    I was a bit disappointed not to have location information of pieces or any further data on the artists. Perhaps further details as to their inspirations etc. Jaume Plensa’s piece is one I would very much like to see in person. Of course without this article I would not know Jaume Plensa so am quite glad I stumbled across this!
