Let me start off by saying I absolutely adore text art and typography. I am just drawn to beautiful text on posters and advertising. It’s one of my favourite aspects of design and is probably what influenced me to want to become a designer when I was younger. The use of text in design is essential whether it be for a magazine, poster or website and it’s a brilliant way of getting a message across to people.  So anyway without further a do here are some amazing and clever examples of text art, typography and ASCII art I managed to come across on the web recently.

    A blog called Medhley has now copied and pasted and stole this post from us here at WDM :(. They are obviously too lazy to do their own work!
