Typography is said to be the backbone of web design, but it’s also considered art all by itself. And, let’s face it, most designers are obsessed with it. No surprise then that in the right hands it can be very powerful. Whether it’s to improve the looks of a website or as a way to express ideas, typography is always there to help you out.

To fully embrace its beauty we brought you some amazing wallpapers from the web about design, ideas, emotions, typefaces and typography itself. We hope they’ll serve you both as a vast source of inspiration and a nice decoration on your desktop as well.

    wicked collection!

    • adhil on February 3rd, 2012 at 4:54 pm

      amazing

  2. Mohammad Koubeissi on March 25th, 2010 at 2:43 am

    Nice collection. Really need a post on ‘simple’ desktop wallpapers. I find busy wallpapers to be quite distracting.

  3. Crofttie on March 25th, 2010 at 2:44 am

    absolutely gorgeous designs – very jealous!

    • Primitivo on March 25th, 2010 at 9:23 am

      HAHA! You’re right! i’m jealous, too. :-)

  4. GUAYJUB on March 25th, 2010 at 3:09 am

    Great collection! *save to favs*

  5. Ramnath on March 25th, 2010 at 3:18 am

    wondering if it took me 10 mins to minutely look at the entire collection, how many man hours it might have taken to make each one. splendid collection.

  6. Tuomi on March 25th, 2010 at 3:22 am

    even better, if you love type and sharing and testing it, check out the http://www.pilo.me typography forum.

  7. Regie on March 25th, 2010 at 3:35 am

    fantastic! i love the last design “typography is king” the most.

  8. nomi on March 25th, 2010 at 3:42 am

    Awesome!

  9. jared thompson on March 25th, 2010 at 4:04 am

    majority have been seen all too often before, but the best ones have got to be the world typography map and the typogrpahy periodic table.

  10. Hillary H. on March 25th, 2010 at 4:11 am

    These are so pretty! I am definitely saving one as my background!

  11. Jordan Walker on March 25th, 2010 at 4:50 am

    Enjoyed the article, typography is simplistic elegance.

  12. Mandy on March 25th, 2010 at 5:04 am

    GREAT COLLECTION! Thanks for sharing.

  13. skystroem on March 25th, 2010 at 5:56 am

    I’m really sorry but there’s more to good typography than just making up a collage from some random words.

    I can hardly see any well thought-out spacing, rhythm or other typographic details in here.

    • 7rish on March 25th, 2010 at 8:32 pm

      to each, his own… i thought these were awesome. the words used went well with the layouts…

    • mojito on March 26th, 2010 at 12:33 am

      Thnaks man! I have the same feeling. Typography is to me much more than using letters and fonts as images. Typography is rather making font invisible. Some of those are dam good works, but not really good as a background wallpaper.

  14. Mandy on March 25th, 2010 at 6:10 am

    A+!

  15. Beth McLain on March 25th, 2010 at 6:12 am

    Nice share. Impressive typography wallpaper,
    I love “Blah blah blah in black”

    • 7rish on March 25th, 2010 at 8:30 pm

      me too!

  16. Victor on March 25th, 2010 at 6:50 am

    very, very nice… loved’em

  47. Phillip Gourley on April 4th, 2010 at 9:34 am

    Hey, Thanks for featuring one of my wallpapers on here. Never though I would be on Noupe any time soon. And being compared against the other superb works!

    However, I made the wallpaper before learning about typography and I too think typography is more than arranging words on a screen, I say this because if these are being used for inspiration its important to know what makes good typography!

    But thanks again for the feature :) Much appreciated.

    • inspirationfeepower on May 10th, 2010 at 12:50 pm

      Phillip Gourley 04 de abril 2010

      Hola, Gracias por ofrecer uno de mis fondos de pantalla aquí. Nunca aunque me gustaría estar en Noupe cualquier momento pronto. Y se compara con las obras magníficas de otros!

      Sin embargo, hice el papel tapiz antes de aprender acerca de la tipografía y tipografía yo también creo es más que la organización de las palabras en una pantalla, digo esto porque si se están utilizando para la inspiración de su importante saber lo que hace que la buena tipografía!

      Pero gracias de nuevo por la función:) Muy apreciado

  48. Designjam on April 6th, 2010 at 3:06 am
