typography poster

Hello there!

Typography is defined as "the style and appearance of printed matter" or "the art or procedure of arranging type or processing data and printing of it".

I, personally, would define it as "the art of arranging and combining different fonts and typefaces".

I love playing with fonts, discovering new ones, and using them! Just recently I had to create a worksheet for a school project and I had a lot of fun picking the perfect fun to use.

If you love fonts as much as I do, or simply want to make something beautiful, then consider making a typography poster!

Today I will be showing you how you can make your own typography art and hopefully inspiring you to try some new things with it.

Let's start!
You will need: paper, a pencil, eraser, black marker (or paint), a ruler, and other shape drawing materials.

First, you'll need to find an inspiring quote that you like.You can just search "inspiring quotes" online and you'll find plenty to choose from. 

Then, use a pencil to sketch your rough draft. Try arranging your words in different ways; you can always erase if you don't like it! Try using different elements like: arrows, symbols, banners, shapes, lines, etc.
Also remember to use lots of different fonts. Combine clean, modern fonts with swirly cursive fonts.

Then, go over everything with your marker, add details, and you're done!

Hang up your work of art, or share it with your friends! 

Hope you enjoyed this post,
