Mind blowing examples of experimental typography

Resources, Typography | May 31, 2011

Typography is often thought of in its practical form, as text on a web page or printed material.

A designer may look at typography in the way that it will impact their design, considering aspects such as spacing, leading, weight and size.

But let’s put all of that aside as we take a look at typography used as an experimental form of art.

In this post we feature over 100 amazing typographical experiments, crazy compositions and funky fonts that ooze creativity.

These examples were collected from Behance’s Typography Served, a truly amazing resource for all typeface enthusiasts.

You can read more about each piece and their authors by clicking on the respective images below. Enjoy!
