Gorgeous Typography Examples in Advertising Design

January 13th, 2010

Typography, the art of arranging type, type design and modifying type glyphs, is often considered as a major part of promotional material and marketing. If you use typography properly, you can not meaningfully convey the message, but also strengthen the brand of your company.

Typography has always been very inspiring and nowadays many artists experiment with type treatments to achieve inspiring, unusual and beautiful results. So, without a further ado, let’s take a look at 50 tremendous print ads that use the power of typography to communicate with potential customers.

Wonderful stuff

I have seen Typography in other websites but.. They are not even close to the Contents that provided by NOUPE.

Its hard to choose the best from the list, According to our current Global Condition my Vote goes to “Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers: England”

….Pictures speak more than a 1000 words…..
.
Noupe You ROCK…..

Forgive me for pointing out that the vast majority of these ‘typography’ examples are actually calligraphic/lettering/type-as-image graphics. Not unrelated to typography of course, but not the same.

Wow! What an inspiring beginning to my day. Want to run out and get lots of clay to play with–the Nike Italy ad is so FUN.

Can’t really choose a favorite, but especially loved the Australia Post: Hug ad and Brighton Language School.

Pivot’s is so luscious (and with a killer logo) that I had to check out their site.

Definitely bookmarking this collection! Thanks.

The main thing that struck me about a vast majority of the examples was how difficult they are to actually read! I tent to check with my toddler to see how easy a text is to read to use it on the web as if my (presently) five year old can read something that is a good measure that others will be able to do so to.
