To Eat With Your Eyes: 40+ Delicious Food Typography Designs

May 23rd, 2013

Delicatessen and fabulous fonts are two sources of inspiration for me, and when they are combined, even better! In fact, it’s really very clever to create beautiful typographical designs with food. Designers then have the chance to trigger cravings with the food, which viewers then associate with the typography. Of course, most food typography is purely for artistic purposes, but every once in a while you may come across a title font that would be perfect for that restaurant website you are building. At the very least, the following collection of food typography designs will give you some great inspiration, whether your project is a cooking contest or the creation of a new font.

The designs below include typography created by actual food, while others are digital creations. Still others used a combination of food amongst other supplies. A few are actual fonts that you can purchase – fonts that the designer created with real food and photographs! Visit the designer’s page to see more of their work or to purchase a font. Then be sure to let us know in the comments below which are your favorites!
