Creative Typography

Creative Typography by Áron Jancsó

Amazing work by Hungarian graphic designer Áron Jancsó.

“I’m a type addict. Building from scratch is how I like to work, sometimes even designing every single letter of a poster. I prefer shapes and structures instead of effects. My style is a blend of modernism, street culture and callygraphy, but it is also very experimental, I’m always searching for new ways of creation.”
