30 Typography Posters That You’ve Probably Never Seen Before

Typography is the art of arranging, designing and modifying type.

Creating a well designed typography poster is no easy task, and takes time and patience.

When a poster focuses only on typography as its main element, the designer has to carefully craft his design to make sure that the type is both legible and artistic at the same time.

  • http://www.fabergraph.hu/ fabergraph

    Have some good stuff here.

  • http://www.seo-creative.co.uk Joanne

    Some fantastic examples of good typography been working in web recently so its refreshing to see good type rather than being constrained to web typefaces.
    Makes me want to start experimenting again with type in my spare time, I don’t think these kind of layouts can be produced by tutorials it takes a natural talent and hours/days/months/years of study and experiments to produce quality layouts, admittedly they get easier and you can teach the basics but unique layouts like these cannot be taught.

  • http://www.creativeindividual.co.uk Laura

    Your right, I haven’t seen any of these posters before – but I’ve certainly seen the styles plenty of times. In fact about half of them remind me of Josef Muller Brockmann’s work. Perhaps my favourite typographer =D

    Beautiful examples of the care and attention that should be paid to typography. My favourites of the more modern styles are:

    22. Typography Dope
    by Francesco Muzzi

    30. Nothing Can Stop a Good Idea
    by Mauro Hernández

    If I were to create my own poster, I’m not too sure what I’d put on it, probably something personal. And being personal I’d have to use my favourite font – Century Gothic.

  • http://userpage.fu-berlin.de/szinke mkind

    nice illustrations.. quite awesome

  • Michelle

    I LOVE this site!!! The inspiration and knowledge is amazing! Keep up the great work. :0)

  • http://www.khwebdesign.net Kent

    ‘Chaos is my name’ is incredible!

  • Kay Gonzalez

  • http://www.slightlycurvedcube.co.uk Wayne Hodkinson


  • http://www.mudeostudio.com Kenny Isidoro

    Excellent collection! Personal favorites are 6 AIGA Typo Show and 19 The Cult of the Ugly.

    If I were to do my own poster, it probably wouldn’t be on typography. I’ve done several of those already in school. I’d probably choose a book or a movie as inspiration. Some of the movie posters these days could use improving.

    I do not know what my poster would say, but I do love to play with all the fonts available, so I’d have fun choosing one. One of my current favorites is name “Garamond.” Another font I like is “Berylium.” Love the creativity of this collection.
