  • Be Inspired by Text Art and Typography


    Posted by Jared in Design, Inspiration, Typography on July 20th, 2010 with 3 Comments

    Typography and Text art are great motivators whether you seen them in the films we watch or the posters we see when walking down the sidewalk. You don’t have to be a great graphic designer to appreciate great text art, personally it is something I love to check out and be inspired by each and every day. When your out and about it’s great looking at posters, road signs or advertising billboards.

    This showcase is from typography and text art seen all over the web and brings together great sources of typography inspiration for us all to be inspired by.

    Text Art in the Movies

    The film Zombieland offers up some great typography and text art when explaining the 32 rules of Zombieland.


    Blending the movie title into the New York skyline is very creative and works very well with outlining where this film setting is based. Another great “Inception” poster puts your eyes focus straight on the movie title, using a strong red font color.

    Another fantastic movie that also makes great use of bold typography that instantly grabs your attention is “Watchmen”, the yellow draws your eyes to the text straight away.

    Kinetic Typogrpahy Videos

    Often done to show off the scene of a favourite movie, these videos use text to showcase the happening and events of a great, often iconic film scene.

    Inspiration to do better than your capabilities is indeed a great one, and can also be the smallest one, the HP0-S28 dumps comes as an inspiration for all the people that hope to be successful in their field. The examinations such as the 642-262 are not only difficult on their own but test a level of intelligence of their applicants too. There is infact a whole chain of certifications such as the 642-447 which is closely linked to the one mentioned above, but again the dumps are the the things that can take you to the level of excellence and success.

        Agreed franco those would have to be in my running for my favourite as well. text art is such a good source of inspiration

    2. Derek says:

      Really like the “Inception” and “Passion Pit” type designs. Not really sure about the “New Found Glory” one; nothing creative there, just an ugly photoshop bevel with an added stroke?
