Creativity is something we all have within us, yet most often it is used to describe artists, designers, and crafters of different kinds. Creativity is the umbrella term for the phenomenon where something new and somehow valuable is formed, while the created subject itself can be intangible, such as an idea, theory, or composition, or a physical object, such as an invention, a design, or an art piece. As creativity can be practiced and developed through various exercises, it’s often the driving force for creatives in the visual arts and design field. Creativity can be found in the most uncommon of sources, and modest of materials – and these twenty cleverly creative handcrafted typography designs prove it.
The art of arranging letters and text – and the endless realm that is creativity
Typography, type, lettering, letters – the art of arranging letters and text in a way that makes it legible, clear, and visually appealing to its reader. It can be so much more than what we read of a page or see on a display, the art of letter can be a powerful tool conveying a mood, a message, or a stylistic idea. And it can be as creative as the imagination allows. These examples from different designers and artists tell us of the endless realm that is creativity.
