Tactile Typography

After scoping the web for inspiring typographers, I found Sean Freeman’s mix of typography and illustration to be very unique, and was stunned by his incredible fusion of organic and digital elements. A London based designer, Sean uses real life objects in combination with photography and computer manipulation to create incredibly expressive type. His work goes beyond simply creating beautiful letterforms, and is more like visual storytelling. Freeman associates words and textures with feelings and connotations to create something powerful. He likes to experiment with as many different materials as possible, including sand, wood, glass, plastic, and even fur. Overall, his work really shows the possibilities of what type can be.
