My serial of typographic excellence at deviantART, simply my favorite typographic artworks. Part 20, the next ten awesome works.

Introducing the first cool typographic artworks of 2008!


PLAY by fiveless
Random work today.
Edited some stray pixels here and there and now I'm not really sure what to do with it, haha. I'm open to suggestions to how I can improve this! ;) Font used is Franklin Gothic Medium, but you knew that already

Varieties Of Fools by 1NNU3NDO
Aka "No Gill" Semi-quick tribute piece to the Gill Sans font. Did it in a few quiet hours at work based on the 1930's (the letter was made in 1928-1932). Inspired by the Computer Arts Projects issue on Typography. Felt inspired by the Eric Gill (creator of the font) quote: "There are now about as many different varieties of letters as there are different kinds of fools". And that was 80 years ago. Hope you enjoy the minimalist approach ;)

Punkhouse by 1NNU3NDO
Punkhouse = Punk & Bauhaus 3 months ago at 14.000 pageviews I quoted Bob Ross with "Shoot, we're having so much fun - let's get a little crazy" Now 3 months later at 25.000 pageviews I quote the amazing Jimmi Hendrix "What seems to be the fuss" I took my next step and got my Groove on, now let's keep walking. Thank you all for 25.000 pageviews!!

Obsolete by 1NNU3NDO
Made this wallpaper inspired by the movie A.I. (which I absolutely love by the way). The vector of the robot is inspired by the scene at the Flesh Fair. Anyways, I tried to work with a feeling of rejection for reasons beyond your own control. Hope it worked out Comments and criticism are welcome :)

Typography 4 by princepoo
Ever feel like the world is falling apart beneath your feet? Ever feel like everything is changing and you can only watch it all slide away? I made this the night before Cal Day, an orientation thing at Berkeley. I hadn't decided which college to go to yet. I had an empty Typography 4 frame for about a month before I finally filled it with...
Garamond. An experiment, yes, but also a representation of the confusion. I put the 'i' on top of everything, though, because there was still hope and future. There still is. Enjoy.

Typography by cromewire
