Using typography in your poster design can be a great way to inspire and motivate people, to initiate change, bring some important issues to the table, and make a big impression. You can fill out the poster with letters from top to bottom or you can use a single word to express your idea loud and clear. Either way, typography can make your posters more playful and impactful.

If you want to create a typography poster, simply dive into the sea of endless possibilities – from emphasizing your favorite quote to announcing an upcoming event or setting your brand apart by enriching visual identity with unique, custom-made fonts.

These are simple guidelines to follow:

  • Select your typeface carefully
  • Match the font with the purpose
  • Make a good visual balance
  • Keep the high contrast
  • Use the white space wisely
  • Make it readable
  • Stay to the point
  • Feel free to experiment

We have selected some of the best typography poster examples for your inspiration, so take a look and unleash your creativity.
