Designers and web users often rely on font generators to create appealing typography to use in creative digital projects, and the Type to Design offers an innovative solution that incorporates social media. The online typography site creatively uses illustrative submissions of letters posted onto Instagram to create a dynamic alphabet made from collaged and unique letters.

Type to Design is a platform put together by creatives Rafa Goicoechea and Nina Sans creatively offers a modern and digital take on collaged art by offering users to create text using collaged letters submitted via Instagram. Each letter is uniquely created by the submitter and strung together in the system to form an inconsistent alphabet design. Some of the letters are abstract and made from unconventional objects such as tentacles, paint or even people.
