Gorgeous Examples of Floral Typography

Advertisement

Floral typography is the technique that combines typography, calligraphy and lettering to create dynamic, “flourishing” designs. With the help of floral elements you can create very tempting and vivid artworks in which the typography seems to be shaped by plants and flowers. In this way you can convey your message in a very artistic way. In fact, various floral ornaments – which are the essential component of floral typography – can make the design stand out and help the artist to create inspiring, refreshing and thought-provoking pieces of art.

Below you’ll find a beautiful collection of floral typography and also some outstanding tutorials that will help you to master the technique or at least get some understanding of how this technique can be used. Please feel free to explore the further works of the artists presented below as well.

    Yeah, pretty boring stuff mostly, and almost all of these look exactly the same.

    Also, just to be pedantic, most of them aren’t floral either, they’re decorative, and none of them serve any purpose.

    Form has to follow function. If you don’t know that, you shouldn’t be designing anything.

    Nice work, but can I make a suggestion? I think you should link the illustrations to the artist’s website, not to any blog. And many of these illustrations are from Si Scott…

    What a marvelous list! It’s simply fascinating. Floral designs always come across as enigmatic and have a certain air of mystery and hypnotic beauty about them. I’m sure that some of these designs took a considerable amount of time and effort to be created. But the end-effect more than justifies the hardship! They are beautiful!
