Just Our Type: 4 Typography Inspirations

Posted on Sep 16, 2016 by

From birthdates and anniversaries to house numbers and children’s names, letters and numbers have the power to evoke precious memories from everyone. Read as we share 4 different and unique ways to get creative with typography and wall art!

Metal

Circa 1940 – 1960, these letters in metals such as zinc and aluminium were individually sourced from three different properties in the north of France. This quirky play on wall art is sold together as a set and features a rustic brown gradient and natural disressing

Concrete

Petite yet robust, these concrete letters and numbers are hand cast and made to order from interior design studio and shop, An Artful Life. The raw texture of concrete creates a dramatic contrast against elements such as pipework, common in warehouse and industrial conversions. (Plus how gorgeous is the matchbox style packaging!)
