15 Type Only Graphic Design Projects to Inspire

When we think of the perfect graphic design balance, we consider the proportions of images and text to convey a message. In some cases one image can say it all, in others, it is the mix of words what gets the job done. Type only graphic design can be used both in advertising and in personal projects.

Type graphic design is very much in vogue and can be very inspiring. To create an effective composition using only type is both art and science. You need to place the text in a way that the reader cannot avoid seeing the words, read the text or gather the composition of an image out of letters. Advertising and promotional material use typography to set the mood for the piece. The same message can make you feel different depending on whether it is written with a soft calligraphy style or a tough graffiti font. Typography designs rely on creative arrays of fonts, colors and words to make phenomenal pieces that are definitely worth showing. We decided to go online searching for inspiration and bring you our 15 favorite Type Only design projects. Take a look, enjoy and get creative!
