The Typography Around You

Looking for ways to inject creativity into your typography designs? Check out this post to explore different types of typography found in everyday life and use them as inspiration for new ideas!

Typography design can make or break a project. It’s all around us and it has an effect on how people interpret things. Look at street signs, packaging, and other everyday things to get new ideas for your designs. Let’s check out some real-world typography and find ways to use it in creative ways!

Store signs are a great way to show off typography design in the real world. Older store signs usually have lots of texture and personality that you won’t find with new ones. They can be made from metal, neon, or even hand-painted designs. Designers love to use these techniques and examples to make interesting designs.

Murals are large art pieces that are painted on walls and other surfaces. They often tell a story or show off the personality of a company. Murals come in lots of different styles, from modern to vintage. Designers like to get creative with the lettering, making it look eye-catching and unique.

Old printed materials are like hidden treasures. They have bold headlines and fancy fonts that can be used in modern designs and give them a timeless feel. Designers can use them for inspiration or copy the letters right into their work.

Old packaging, posters, and ads are like windows into the past. They have bold letters, fancy serifs, and fancy scripts. Using vintage typography in modern designs can make people feel good about the past or recognize a company’s history. Designers can use this to make their designs look special and stand out from others.

In the end, typography is everywhere around us. We can use it in all sorts of cool ways when we design things. Look at signs or old things for ideas – you can make something really special!
