  1. Loving this! All typography is amazing!!!!

  2. Retro says:

    About 50% of these are absolutely superb. The other 50% completely fail as typographic designs, because they’re utterly unreadable.

    If you’re designing a poster to promote something, or to pass some sort of message on, why would you make the text unreadable? That’s NOT good typographic design, in my book.

    • Gab says:

      Completely agree on this. I was thinking the same thing as I was scrolling down. While the letters may look interesting aesthetically, if it is illegible the message is lost. What is more important, making something look good or getting the message across? Good design shouldn’t sacrifice good content.

      “About 50% of these are absolutely superb. The other 50% completely fail as typographic designs, because they’re utterly unreadable.”

      These examples were described as ‘typography related designs and artwork pieces’. I suspect the 50% you dismissed as being poor design are the artwork pieces.
