Typography in Three-Dimensions
Following on from my last Design Inspiration blog post, which focussed on Illustration, this month I’m drawing inspiration from the world of typography. In compiling this collection I’ve noticed a theme occurring… three-dimensions. From 3D-generated type, to letterforms made from physical objects, there’s a bit of 3D typography inspiration here for everyone… enjoy!
Australian Designer, now residing in New York City, Luke specialises in 3D illustration and typography. I love the bold, colourful statements, brought alive in three-dimensions. The shiny perfection of his icing typography definitely gets any cake-lover peckish! His clients include Adobe, Ray Ban, American Express, Adidas & Universal Music.
Based in London, Dan has created some fun 3D works of typographic art that have grabbed my attention. These intricate webs of thread create a complex yet beautiful effect.
Global communications company Arnold Furnace, worked on these typographic adverts for the launch of Chinese mobile phone brand Huawei in Australia and New Zealand. As well as being fun, quirky pieces of design, the campaign helped Huawei reach their entire year’s sales target in the first month of activity!
Designer and lettering artist from Ohio, USA, Danielle creates ‘food typography’… which is exactly as it sounds, typography created from food. I love the work where powdery foodstuff, like coffee or spices, are shaped into beautiful letterforms. Equally impressive though is Danielle’s ability to mould more challenging food like cooked bacon into recognisable letterforms, involving even more ingenuity. Her work has expanded to include plants, wearables and everyday objects. Her clients include Target, Disney, Tesco, The Guardian and Kellogg.
The Australian division of global brand agency Interbrand created the branding for Sydney Opera House. The curvy 3D effect of the letterforms echoes the qualities of the architecture itself. Simple yet effective.
This last one brings me onto branding inspiration… which may be a clue to my next blog post! If you’d like to comment or share your own design inspiration remember to tweet us via @gmdesignltd.
