20 Beautiful Typographic Graphic Designs
Designers are making type sexy again. Painting or designing with type is a growing trend nowadays especially with the use of computers giving designers the various tools to do amazing things with type or fonts. I am talking about the design trend where the type or typography itself is becoming the main element of a graphic or web design. We see them in almost any form of print and web designs such as for posters, brochures, flyers, Annual Reports, book covers and even for product packaging design. For advertisers, especially, words are extremely limiting when it comes to conveying ideas and concepts. That is why design has to go hand in hand with types to ensure that these words carry their intended meaning into the minds of the waiting public.
Typographic design is interesting because it at first glance, it looks very simple to execute. But contrary to what we want to believe, a typographic design is difficult to create and involves a lot of sensibility and creativity. When using this kind of design style, there are things that need to be considered. First the choice of the font style relative to the message that you want to convey to your intended audience as well as the sizes and arrangements of types. All of these things are to be considered along with the color schemes and other design elements.
