Foodagraphs, puppygrams and landscapes in Valencia, while interesting, are not the most inspiring images to clog your instagram with. Because boredom, creative block and habitual swipe scrolling will lead you there anyway, I’ve compiled a list of accounts that will fill your feed with double tap-worthy typographical inspiration.
I want to reach out and touch Ali Lander-Shindler’s stitched meat series. The Chicago-based freelance artist contrasts the delicate craft of needlepoint with crass, fleshy innuendos and humorously marries them with familiar type. The embroidery has a delectable texture that would make it difficult to refrain from running my fingers along it.
Having just moved away from Missoula, Montana I am really missing the Northwest. But the letter-work from designer Tyler Thorney’s portfolio takes me back to the mystic mountains of my former home so quickly. Thorney’s hand sketched type compliments its surroundings rather than standing out starkly. Even when he overlays images with type, they could both stand alone yet they work together without conflicting.
