If you've already grown bored with some of your Instagram snaps, they could now be put to better use with a new photo-generated typography app that creates fun type out of old pictures. The Amsterdam-based firm 'SuperHeroes' originally developed the charming 'Type to Design' app as part of a project that required illustrators to come up with a unique letterform and upload it to Instagram each day. Now the app is publicly available, meaning anyone can turn an average picture into a unique Instagram-generated font.

Type to Design is incredibly simple to use, but also thoroughly addictive. Simply type any word into the homepage and the site will auto-fill your text with letters drawn from your own Instagram account. To change any particular character, simply click on it and a new image will take its place. For anyone who loves to play around with words and images, this clever photo-generated typography app is sure to be a ton of fun.
