Today, we will be showcasing outer space typography. This is probably my favorite style of design. There is so much that you can do with the outer space, galaxy style. While it is not really appropriate to use in most client projects, it is a very fun effect to implement on your own personal projects.
Because I really enjoy this design style, this will be a two series post. Link

It’s amazing what atists are able to create using this design style. By the way, this style allows for lots of creativity. Planets, galaxies, nebulas, comets, asteroids, lighting effects, textures, shiny objects, and a lot more elements are at your disposal to use. Some of the designs are very clean and simple, while some use a lot of different effects. Also, the use of vibrant, bright, and bold colors are very common. The reason why the designs look really good is because of the contrast. Most of the designs feature a dark, space background while using very bright colors for the text and lighting effects.
Let’s go ahead and view 50 stunning, outer space typography creations that are definitely out of this world.
