If you’re sick of seeing the Helvetica typeface everywhere and are looking for something more aesthetically spiced up, Martin Schmetzer is your man. He’s the artist responsible for the pictures you’re currently looking at of stylish fonts and, I have to say, these letters are anything but boring.

Currently based in Stockholm, Sweden, Martin Schmetzer brings his unique illustrative talents to the world of typography. Combining fanciful flair with an edge commonly seen in tattoo art, Schmetzer produces word art that is sometimes ornate and elegant, and other times wickedly dangerous.

One of Schmetzer’s pieces, entitled ‘Sex Sells’, ingeniously integrates female body parts into the actual words. The result is an edgy font that brings the words to life.
