    Fantastic stuff! great to see type being utilised and considered in so many ways.
    I’m fronting the typefaceaweek project for 2009 – so anyone interested in using type in a diaristic / blogging / expressive way, send in your tpyeface ideas and you’ll get full credit + a ltd edition CD rom documenting the year’s exploration of type…plug plug. It’s all about being creative and creating a community who share and find inspiration in many places!

    Pretty, but… nearly all of them are more or less completely illegible! What use is an illegible font? If people can’t read it, why not make an illustration or painting?

    I like a lot of these, but some aren’t even legible. Isn’t that what text / fonts are for?

    The second ist just genious! I don’t know how shal I use it, but looks extremly creative.

  • http://www.trustycovers.com/ Kieren @ Cover Graphics

    There’s just so many fonts available for use in graphic design that it can become a profession in and of itself I’ve found- certainly going to have a few more posts up your sleeve here! I think my favorite font from above would be the pastel typeface. Some of the others are a little too experimental for me. :)

  • adesigner

    i agree with Jason Pang, Scavenger & John.
    These are all beautiful, but the purpose of type is that you are supposed to be able to read it. If you can’t, then it’s useless

  • StudentDeSigner…….!……HOpeFully

    Cool types.
    Really loved the 3rd and 6th one, also the “Pleix” design.

  • TMR

    the DUPL of the 14th font creates a swastika lol
