13 Artists Killing it in the Typography Scene
Typography is everywhere. We see and interact with typography every day
Art Stuff 07 Jan 2022

Typography is everywhere. We see and interact with typography every day, but few of us pause to really appreciate it.

The first written language was the cuneiform script from ancient Mesopotamia, created around 3200 BC. There are 8 different types of alphabet used in the world today: Arabic, Aramaic, Armenian, Brahmi, Cyrillic, Georgian, Greek and Latin. There are over 200,000 fonts in use across the globe.

Quote accounts that post daily affirmations and sayings are incredibly popular on social media, so maybe you want to add some typographical artists to your follow list?

Here are 13 of our favourite artists creating fonts and word-based design:
