typography by strangled-utopia typography by strangled-utopia
EDIT 1/29/2010: Did this get featured somewhere or something!? There's been a ton of attention on it recently!

because i could.
and because i was bored.
and because orange is the coolest colour in the world so don't mess with it.

i'm not sure if it's really -typography- or not, but i've looked through those galleries several times recently (don't ask) and basically this is it. very very simplified.

yeah. simplicity is cool.

Oh and people might find it easier to work with Illustrator to do this kind of thing, including text to a curved path.

Or free software: Inkscape.

Well this does involve type, but typography is so much more than that.

A designer decides the type choices they want and takes steps to make it sure that text is composed so it is readable, pleasant, and coherent and if they do their job properly, no one well even know. Kinda like a Ninja. lol

But typography is also used in an artistic sense as well, like what you've seen on DA.

Typographers even design typefaces, some historical ones are Claude Garamond or Stanley Morrison to name a few.

In everything you read from birthday cards to magazines, posters and billboards involves typography.

Although this is lacking a complete definition of typography, it will hopefully set you on a path of using type more often in your art.

Cheers

Yes, I understand now that typography is much more than what is represented here - especially since this piece's popularity gave me some interest in it; the past two years have helped me realise that it's a lot more than playing around with text!

Thank you for the comment, though!

Honestly, I don't know! I believe you type on the pen tool to get text on a curve - but unfortunately, Photoshop Elements, which is what I use, doesn't have a pen tool.

hey, great job. im wondering what program do you use to make these kinds of typographies? because when i try in photoshop, anything larger than like 60pt gets pixilated and i can't make smooth edges on the letters anymore. do you use fireworks? i tried it in fireworks and it works well, but i can't change the shape of my letters, say if i wanted to mess with the shape of the 'w' on the word "wonder". Know what i mean?
thanks.

Photoshop Elements 4.0
Is your anti-aliasing on? Without it, your edges get all choppy.
