Lately, some really artistic and stylized typography has been popping up all over the internet. I’ve seen examples on a Pinterest, Tumblr, and a few of my favorite blogs. A few days ago, HonestlyWTF posted about a series of “Daily Dishonesty” images created by NYC graphic designer Lauren Hom. They’re really cool, and I especially love the stylish, simple designs. Here’s a few examples:
I also took a look through my quotes board on Pinterest and found a few of my favorite typographically focused quotes.
Inspired by all of these great examples, I started sketching. I pretty much always have a notebook of some sort on me for writing/drawing/doodling. It’s also a fantastic way to look like you’re paying attention in lecture when you’re actually not. After sketching out a few words, I scanned it onto my computer and cleaned it up in photoshop. I also added some color and a few little accents. Mine is not nearly as good as those done by professionals, but I think it’s passable. It was also pretty fun. Guess I’ve found a new way to procrastinate!
