9 Examples of Creative Typography

They say a picture is worth a thousand words...but what about a picture made of words? Words are an extremely powerful tool for getting your message or point across, and when you combine those words with beautiful images you have the chance to get your message to go viral. People love things that 1) look beautiful and 2) convey a message. Typography art pieces are a great form of advertising and presenting important information, as well as conveying emotions to your audience.

Today, we're bringing you some creative examples of typography for your inspiration. We'd love to see what you think of these, and if you can also come up with some examples of unique typography of your own.

Barcelona Kit for Santos match

The lettering for Barcelona's jerseys will be changed for one match only, and then auctioned off after the match on eBay to raise funds for Itinerarium Foundation. The distinctive lettering is the work of Anna Vives, a graphic designer with down syndrome. Anna works at the Itinerarium Foundation, and the addition of her designs to Barcelona's kit is meant to help raise awareness of her condition. A great use of typography to help others!
