From Literal Typefaced Advertising to Loud Typography Ads

— November 7, 2013 — Marketing
Demonstrating a clear message to consumers through prints or commercials can be a difficult task, but these bold typographic ad techniques are showcasing how the creative use of words and letters can make a bold impact.

While detailed visual settings and images are definitely creative ways to portray an overall theme, sometimes opting for a clear-cut message or purpose to the ad is a much more simpler approach to engaging consumers. These typographic ad techniques are showcasing how visually displaying words, brand names, and logos through creative shapes and humorous designs serves to add a very simple yet thought-provoking feature to the ad.

From precariously written prints to tasty typographic meal campaigns, these inventive ad techniques are showcasing how simple words and letters can have a profound visual impact on the overall design.
