Such a great example of the synergy between old fashioned typography and new, modern design. The colors, textures, patterns, gradients, and shapes are indicative of web 2.0 and the emerging style of 2009. A similar article that is also interesting and related, yet more focused on logos can be found here: http://www.logolounge.com/logotrends/

why use a tribute to Yulia Brodskaya when you can use the real thing? Didn’t get that one.

very creative indeed!

How about naming the artists and designers who worked hard to make these. Kinda thoughtless to omit that. :/

Jacob Gube

June 26th, 2009

@Twisted: That’s a valid point and I’ll make sure to keep this in mind in future posts. Although the works do link back to the author’s work, it would be nice to see who designed them here on the page.

It’s giving me some great ideas for combining art and text. Ken Kesey would be turning in his grave right now.
