45 Examples of Illustrative Lettering in Vector
From the very first Phoenician alphabet, through Chinese calligraphy, to illuminated manuscripts, and to desktop publishing, the written word has been one of our primary means of communication. Not content with plain text on a blank background, artists through the centuries have created beautiful, awe-inspiring designs with type. Whether its purpose is to inspire or identify, illustrative lettering communicates to the heart as well as the head.
With the advancement of vector drawing software, lettering has exploded as an artform. Infinite variations can be made with the click of a mouse. And though vector artists are not toiling by candlelight, hunched over a stone tablet or quill pen, their art is no less amazing in its beauty and complexity.
