Design Inspiration: 21 Gorgeous experimental typefaces for your inner designer (August)

Nearly every designer out there has a strong love for typography. Of course, many of us will never become full-fledged type designers, or even dedicated typographers, but somehow we all still manage to lust for the details of gorgeous type treatments, display and text typefaces.

And out of every genre hidden in the depths of typography, from black letter to grotesque, I have the softest of soft spots for experimental typefaces. They push boundaries, and that’s exactly what keeps this industry alive and well.
