Typography is everywhere and we can’t get enough of it. Whether it’s an inspirational quote, a logo design, or the font on your favorite greeting card, typography allows you to express yourself, or shall we say, your “type.” Knowing this, we want to be at the forefront of your inspiration, which is why we’ve gathered some user-generated imagery paying tribute to the great art of typography. Visit our “What’s Your Type” Pinterest board to kern you and your right type closer together. Here’s a few that fuel our creativity:
Typography is one of the most important design elements in a website; it sets the tone and can make or break the whole design. When choosing a font, there are hundreds of databases at your fingertips online. You can opt for a popular, reliable choice such as Helvetica, Rockwell or Future. Or you can scour the web for a new, unknown typeface. But have you ever considered creating your own?
Hand drawn fonts have the possibility of being richly specific and profoundly beautiful. This style allows for complete customization to fit the style and parameters of your web design. Here are just a few of great examples of hand lettering on the web.

Fonts, when used well, can be absolutely beautiful. However when many people think of typography, they likely envision some sort of poster or graphic design, or perhaps even web design.

Below are some examples of a few of our favorite fonts given the kinetic typography treatment. If you’d like to learn more about fonts check out Typekit, which will be included in the Creative Cloud membership.
