Digital Text Art: What do you think about it?

The first article of the series is already out:

Digital text art: What do you think about it?
A news article based on a survey featuring dedicated typography artists talking about today's digital text art. Some gorgeous works included.  :deviation:


Typographers Inside and Out

In order to gain an in-depth insight in typography as well as to pay tribute to some of the most renowned text artists, we're conducting a series of interviews with tistwas, pica-ae, shoelesspeacock and more! You can now read the interview with Gemma Goode, a.k.a. tistwas

Typo Masters: Interview with Gemma Goode
Gemma is talking about her one-year typography project. If you haven't seen it yet, you should visit her page, the amount of work put in it is jaw-dropping.



Alongside our Love Letter Contest we decided to run a small series of challenges to help get your creative juices flowing. Everyone who participates will be included in a special feature at the end of the Type Your Heart Out event and if there's more interest, perhaps we will add some additional prizes.

Typrompt No.1

The first typography challenge is called Joy-life and requires you to choose one reason why life is good and worth living to the fullest and then represent it in the most joyful typography piece you can manage. Let us share the joy this particular thing gives you. Extra credit if you manage to represent it by not stating what it is directly but hinting at it so we can guess.  ;)

Rules for participation
Submissions send via note to me, drop-asd with "Joy-life" as the subject. The work will be included shortly in the group's gallery. Don't forget to mention in the work's description that it is made for this prompt and add a link to this article or to the group's page. Remember, we only accept new works created specifically for this challenge, otherwise the very aim of the prompt is lost.

I am looking for your entries!  :la:


Constructive Comment Corner

We are aware that to all of us aspiring artists the most valuable thing (besides exposure ;)) is feedback. It helps us grow, perfect our art and find our artistic path through the insight of others.
We also understand that not everyone has the time to give lengthy critiques so here is what we present to you:
Digiversity officially invites you to take part in this give-and-take activity, in which you leave a constructive comment on another fellow deviant's work and they return you the favour. You can submit pieces you want feedback on via note to me (drop-asd) and I will add them to a special folder in the gallery, which you can browse to find work you want to comment on. You may only submit one work at a time, though, i.e. don't submit another one until you've received and returned a comment, or ultimately until after five days from the submission. Only digital text art accepted for the time being.

Credits to 3wyl for the idea.

Great collection. :clap: But this titanic-poster was just remade by the guy you featured here … The real artist of the idea and image was *BeJay and the original is this: [link]
drop-asd's avatar
Thank you! :aww:
I hadn't realized. :hmm: I wish I could fix it. Thank you for letting me know, though.
Arahiriel's avatar
You are welcome. No problem, I also wouldn’t know if I hadn’t read one of the comments to this picture.

coolest article around on typography! i'm coming back to go through the links again.... soooooooo much to learn here!! Awesome job! :)
drop-asd's avatar
:blush: Thank you very much for these words. I'm so happy that it was helpful to you. There are more helpful links in the third issue, you can check it out in the box on my page. I decided to take it out of dA for a bit. ;) Thank you so much for the compliment and the encouragement. It increases tenfold my determination to continue.
NeelamChandwani's avatar
i did a feature myself (for the first time recently) ..so now i have come to appreciate the amount of work that goes behind it.. its not just the artists who are featured that deserves the appreciation.. the people like you who actually go out to give these artists and articles more exposure without asking for anykind of favour or gaining anything out of it (apart for a mere pleasure to be able to do this) are the real unsung heroes and deserve appreciation too :)

Cheers! for the god work u did on that feature.. i would definately check out the rest of the typography features(thats why i faved it..so that it's easier to find it when i have ample time to spoil myself with it )
drop-asd's avatar
I just checked it out, you should put it in your front page for people to see :P Yeah, well, sometimes it does take a few hours worth of work and designing. Being the perfectionist I am I always go into detail with the articles as I would do with artwork. And as another parallel, your articles improve with practice, too. Well, thank you for the appreciation. :hug: Honestly I admire people who regularly submit articles but with myself it's a bit different - I've lost this desire to receive any kind of appreciation from others that I had when I joined. What pushes me forward now is to see that people enjoy being featured and to see them participate. It's very encouraging.

That'd be great! I hope that you like the rest of them :nod: The latest one has some new features, which may intrigue you.
NeelamChandwani's avatar
humm.. :) well i respect u for u are doing for the DA community :) really.
Its so selfless.. and all i can say is thanks for existing here :) :P seriously!
i'm not sure if i would be doing it regularly..but there's so much of my interest around here that i would love to see at one place..and it's going to take a hell lotta time to do it the way u do :D

i'll keep checking the articles from time to time :)
