Pinterested: New boards this week

This week, we’ve traveled across the internet in search for street art — our most recent Pinterest boards showcase some fun and extraordinary examples of type.

Fall is a great season for traveling, so we’ve explored a tiny bit of the internet for type around the world. Our Street Art & Graffiti board is another great example of “handmade” type (or lettering, if you will). As David discussed some skeuomorphic type for this week’s Type Trends, you’ll find some examples of that with street art, as well, including ribbon type by the street artist Eme. If you’re traveling this season, maybe you can find some of these examples on our pinboard!

Also, don’t forget about our Alphabetized board — it’s always interesting to find how different objects or materials, such as raw meat, can be made into a sturdy alphabet or how elaborate details can be worked into or out of an already-existing typeface.

If you’re new to Pinterest, don’t forget to follow all of our boards, otherwise you’ll miss the new boards we create every week!

Pinterested: New boards this week

We have a few new Pinterest boards up this week including our X Marks The Spot board that we created especially for those who were plunderin’ for typographic treasures on Talk Like A Pirate Day.

On our Alphabetized board, we’ll be pinning interesting finds that showcase full alphabet designs ranging from posters, unique fonts, home decor, and character sets designed just for fun.

In line with our Typographic Trend this week, our Let’s Get Physical board contains images and items of type in the physical world as well as three-dimensional fonts including Buster OT from Elsner+Flake designed to appear like the letters are popping up from the ground and Ironmonger Three D OT from Font Bureau, sharply chiseled down to catch your eye.

If you love our pinboards and have friends on that are in need of some typographic goodies on their Pinterest feed, spread the word!
