Fontspiration: 90% Of Design Is Typography

“When typography is on point, words become images.”
― Shawn Lukas

Much has been going on with typography in our world lately. We released our 2015 Type Trends survey and also made some typography predictions for 2016 with some help from our friends Laura Worthing and Sara Hyndman.

One of our absolute favorite things to do is work with talented graphic designers from around the globe to inspire your type. Not only do we have a robust collection on our Fontspiration Pinterest board, but we also feed these inspirational pieces into the Fontspiration panel within Suitcase Fusion, as well as in our free Fontspiration app for iPhone.

Without further ado, we present our most recent set of custom-made Fontpirations. These pieces feature type by Rvq Type Foundry, Type Faith Fonts, Mika Melvas Type Studio, Letterhead Fonts, Lost Type Co-Op, DSType Foundry, and House Industries. Check ’em out.
