Raise your hand if you’re a type nerd? Yep, that’s what I thought. There’s something about seeing beautifully designed words that truly makes them art! Here are 13 amazing examples.
The work of chalk artist Dana Tanamachi is so charming. Think she can come write out my grocery list?
This art installation in The Other Bookstore in Malaysia may be the most original in-store signage I’ve ever seen.
The typeface of The New York Times logo is a work of art in itself, but it’s especially lovely in fall succulents.
The Ace Hotels have design down to a T. I love their use of old signage letters in their Palm Springs and New York hotels.
Artist Anna Garforth created this installation with masking tape on a fence in Spain. Me gusta.
Toronto artist Farah Tamachi made this 6-foot cursive display out of cardboard. Inspirational and eco-friendly.
Good art direction in restaurants makes the food taste better. The advertising on the brick wall in Atlanta’s Cakes & Ale bakery was unearthed and restored in a renovation. And The Arrogant Butcher mural in Phoenix went up in 23 hours. In a row.
This tape installation by Stephen Doyle in a Manhattan KIPP middle school is a great reminder of what it takes to win.
And, finally, this mural in a Hamburg coffee shop would cheer my mornings up almost as much as my latte.
Any of this fancy type strike your fancy?
