It is perhaps needless to say, given that I work in print production, but my love of ‘type’ is strong.

The use of typography in advertising is a design category – if not an art form – in itself. It can transform even otherwise unremarkable words into beautiful, unique pieces of communication.

Sometimes photographic imagery or illustrations are simply not appropriate for a given creative brief, but that doesn’t mean there is no place for inspirational design. Just take a look at these examples of dazzling typography.

"Something the locksmith had not grasped, but which the IT company and consulting firms understood all too well, is the role played by justifying bullshit in the modern economy." Brilliant stuff from Rory Sutherland, as always. lnkd.in/fZJTjrh
