One of the most wonderful things in typography is its ability to transform a flat surface into something decorative and unique. The tradition of painting letterforms or information on windows and doors to retail and food establishment. Large typographic information on the sides of brick buildings is also a tradition that can be seen in cities and towns, large and small. I have noticed a new interest in this kind of typography appearing recently. I think this is because of the increased interest in craft as part of design and the continued love of hand-drawn or tactile text. Even with web and mobile, these techniques can be used to add that visual interest to our space and environment.
