Typography and text art is pretty big at the moment. Interior design retailers are selling a lot of framed typography quotes, text and wall art and typography is always big in the customised t-shirt world.
It is a master art and should never be underestimated. It’s a skilful technique of arranging typefaces, selecting the right colour, size, kerning and point size. No matter how good the art is, the main objective of the typographer is to always make sure that the design is readable as well as being good to look at.
These are some examples of typography at it’s very best.
