Hello there friends! We hope that your work life is treating you well and that our blogs and mock-up PSD files are helping you work on amazing content to be used both personally and commercially. Our today’s blog focuses on an exquisite collection of typography of cities done beautifully and we can bet that you all are going to love it. So, let us get started with this one right away!
If you are new to the typography world or if you are planning to learn the skills; allow us to share what the hype is about and once we are done with that, we will share with you what Mr. Cup / Barral Fabien has created. Typography is the art of creating alphabets, names and phrases etc. to make the text appealing and attractive to look at and read. Typography makes everything beautiful and that is why it is being used by everyone to create art for their businesses especially brand identities etc.
That is not all as typography is also the art of arranging the letters and phrases in a way that it is presentable. Like every art type and skill, time and efforts are required to master typography and we know that we have said it before too that if you want to learn something, you have to accept the fact that you won’t learn it over night so be patient when you start your journey of doing amazing things.
In this part of our blog, we are about to share how you can start learning typography. Read carefully as all these tips and tricks will help you in the longer run. You need to understand and remember that practice will make you perfect. To start it off, start practicing whatever you write and practice it even more until you have this feeling that you are getting better with every attempt that you are making. If things are looking a little too difficult at this point, then you can set an hour or two to practice your handwriting during that time.
You can improve it even more by also scanning it and taking it to a digital screen and you will see that things are getting better for you all. This is something very important and all of you need to know that you must only choose three fonts (and never more than that) for your typography. Anything more than that looks confusing and can also be a distraction for the readers too. If you are creating typography on a digital screen, then make the most of free fonts and experiment with what looks great.
Hierarchy is also very important; it should be logical and it should be clear too. Making sure that your order of arranging letters and phrases is perfect will help your readers read the text easily too and they will also be able to identify how to read whatever is written there. You must also know that spacing is crucial as it makes the readability easy and fun. Your next step is to understand the grid as well because it will help you align whatever you are writing and again; the grid will bring in harmony to your artworks (both on paper as well as on digital screens).
For digital typography; you can experiment by adding a layer of blur effect as well because it will create an awesome look and feel for your text as you will be able to see how much white spacing is there and then you can also understand the spacing of the fonts too. All these pointers that we are mentioning here are to help you master your typography skills. If you know that you have mastered the art enough, you must also spend some time to create your own fonts as well because that is literally what art of typography is, you know. So, make sure that you do this too while you are at it – also, it totally depends if you have the time and energy to do it.
Now it is time for us to share these beautifully created alphabet cities typography collection. We are hoping that you are reading this blog in your free time because you will require ample time to view these stunning masterpieces. From creating letters to creating city names; you will see how amazing this typography collection is. Interestingly; all these stunning typography masterpieces can be printed on a visual book as well and if you are super interested in keeping something like that with you especially when you are mastering your own skills, then that would be a really nice idea.
