Digital Text Art: What do you think about it? 2
Digital text art is one of the branches of graphic design that is also related to calligraphy as the first text art. It stands out from other genres with its unique subject and approach to creating a piece. Mastering it is no easy task. Some would say that it's all about font and maybe to a certain extent colour. But there is a sort of magic in the perfect composition of the text, the harmony between colour schemes, textures and different characters, that needs years practice to be perfected. There is also something charming in the direct, bold and straight-forward way in which the message is delivered through text art. So is this what attracted typographers to that genre? In order to find out what it is in text art that spurs people on to dedicate their work and inspiration to it and what place it takes in their artistic life, I conducted a survey among devoted text artists in dA and this is a compilation of their responses.
Due to the overwhelming response I received, it became oblig

Typo masters: Interview with Gemma Goode
There was a great deal of hesitation involved in the process of choosing who would be the first artist to be interviewed for the group. I had a long list of people I want to interview so the choice was wide and therefore difficult. What sets tistwas apart, you might ask? Well, her project struck me as absolutely brilliant the first time I came across a piece of it but later on I couldn’t help but marvel at the strength of her will and the contribution she is making to the intellectual database of the DeviantArt community. So what exactly is this project? To sup it up she decided to submit a curious fact with even more curious appearance as her chosen medium is digital typography. I shall leave the details to her.

:bulletgreen:Hello!
Well, my name is Gemma Goode, though my friends call me Gem and I'm a 23 year old Brit. :)
I'm a working artist and have been a painter for about six years now. However, I'm moving more into textiles at the moment! I'm a restless artist

Digital text art: What do you think about it?
It was through tistwas's project You Learn Something New Every Day that I first became interested in typography and text art. Ever since I've been astonished by the world of beauty this genre presents, a whole different universe of meanings and concepts, a whole different set of aesthetic rules. I've been enthralled at the way in which simple messages can gain the impact of a missile through the means of typography art. Sadly, I've also been surprised at how under-appreciated text art is in dA. Daily the text art gallery boasts only a few pages of new submissions, which compared to other digital media such as painting or photomanipulation is incredibly little. Still in life text plays a vital role in many areas of our lives. It is not only there to inform us - through graphic design we must learn to enjoy it for its aesthetic value. Allow me to share a quote on typography from an
