superb!

2

Very interesting!!

i love typography

4

These works throw me back to the good old days of graphic design. Great examples of how much you can do with so little (and without any half naked model!). Inspiring.

6

These are awesome! What an inspiration! Thx for putting together.

7

Very nice selection. I like the Raven of course.

very inspirational indeed. I’ve never used text as a medium but I really want to experiment now. Great post.

12

interesting ones!!!!

13

This is just brilliant, inspiring and totally cool.

15

This is awesome, And some brilliant examples.

Given me much inspiration *runs off to photoshop* weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

16

These pictures are great! Love the way they are utilizing text and imagery.

17

very interesting. I liked it

18

Most of these display a very weak level of knowledge of type or design. Sure, they can run photoshop. I can teach a 3 year old to do that. Also, the word “awesome” is as good as it gets. There is no “extremely” or other degree to this most overused word by people who are severely lacking in vocabulary skills.

19

This is one of the better “X Examples Of…” pages in graphic design.

20

very amazing and very nice
good adea
Thankyou very much

Great list! These are really great examples of typography!

23

Great web site! I am realy happy stumbling upon it!

24

Most of these are equivalent to a level 1 type class’ final assignment…alright, but many boil down to lining up some type in a shape which, when you think about it, is a boring and very easy technique.

The addiction one is the worst though. Terrible.

If you’re going to make a post about “Extremely Awesome” typography, make sure you know what you’re looking at.

I teach typography, and would never recommend this, creating images with type is naff. There is a difference between design and decorating.

Now this is what I call ‘word art’. My, my this is where speach becomes beautiful.
Tanya

49

This is trully art!

50

Merav, mostly yo your comment on ‘good old days’ and ‘half naked models’
the true good old days of art were in fact half naked models as humans looked for the perfection with in the human body or the models in fact were naked, such as the ‘David’ or any piece found in ancient times and the v unless the church had it painted over. Art should not be judged in a negative manner due to nudity. I learned this my self at a young age with the image ‘the origin of life’ which is a paining of the lower torso of a naked female. This art work is just as beautiful as any piece of art, even if it is text and discriminates to those who do not know the English language. This art is then only understood of it’s beauty when those who look at it speak the language, so the beauty has a high possibility to be lost.

51

HOLY ***** So doing typography! I am studying graphic design and was tossing up whether to do typography or not .. I definitely WILL!

52

Great designs, very good management of topography.
Congrats!

53

These are way above any words to described, I feel like I can spend the rest of life just by watching these wonderful works.

54

AMAZEBALLS!!!!!

55

Ideal design for me, this post is going for bookmarked on my list.
Thanks for sharing

56

so great work! nice collection.

57

really cool collection. some powerful messages

58

50 examples of extreme mediocrity, you mean.

59

These are awful. most of them are not original at all and some of them even look like flyers for tacky beach parties. if these are the 50 best examples of ‘awesome’ typography you can come up with you probably have a very bad taste or you just dont know that much about typography.

60

Most of these remind me of mediocre Computer Arts graphics, and some are truly awful.
The raven, lemon, daily 365, love and knowledge. These are extremely awful examples of typographic skill.

61

nice blog! thanks for the help.

Gave me goosebumps!

You weren’t kidding. “Extremely awesome” doesn’t begin to describe these. I’m hanging up my designer hat now; feeling somewhat defeated. But also inspired.

Amazing collection, is there a software to do this? I believe that those artists really took the time and labor to place each word on each media puzzle.

70

Thanks you for shere picture, there are picture very great, I like it

71

I liked it……………..

72

This collection is awesome, just awesome… “I Speak Alone” is just incredible! Big thumbs up!

73

I have to say that when I saw all of these different types of typeograghy designs I was absolutely blown away! Just seeing what these designers have done when playing with words and letters has creates such a magnificent Art display. I hope that someday I will be able to inspire and encourage other people with this type of creative media like these people have for me!! :]

74

Lovely typography. Congrats to creators.

75

Lion and I will never Give up, Were Awesome!!! liked Steve Paul Jobs too! Nice compile, and nice efforts by artists.

76

I never gave much thought about typography until a classmate of mine gave a presentation on it. So prominent in our everyday lives yet so little examined. Anyway, of these I think Burdened is by far the best.

77

83

Creating an image with type isn’t typography. These are sophomoric exercises in density at best.

Drivel, pure and simple.

84

everything gonna be ok

85

This stuff is awesome! I wonder what software they use… Photoshop, Illustrator…??

86

nice one! thanks for sharing!

87

it’s really great post that was …

88

REally Good stuff,

Thanks for sharing.

89

While these images are all quite interesting as well as beautiful, I was particularly impressed by two. “What Lies Within” as well as “Steven Paul Jobs”. Both images have a great deal of depth and character I wish I had full sized images.
Thank you.

90

Amazing, awesome, gorgeous and very interesting images.

91

Inspirational designs and ideas.

92

demonstrates the fundamentally contemporary misunderstanding of what typography is.

Hint: it isn’t editorial illustration using words and letters as if they were paint.

93

Wow these are great… the Barack Obama one and the other people are just incredible… would love to know how to do something like that lol… these would make great posters!
