Hey all,

I'm interested to see where people are from and where they get their inspiration for their typographic work :)

Sydney-town, and I didn't know I did typographic work until I was asked to submit a photo to this group :) What is typographic work? Pictures of type?

Haha yes well this group is about capturing typography, be it creating type from scratch or capturing/recognising found type.

–noun
1. the art or process of printing with type.
2. the work of setting and arranging types and of printing from them.
3. the general character or appearance of printed matter.

Although this refers to print, it's much more broader than that...

Hi,
I'm from Dallas, TX. I love type. I have done sketches and drafts of custom typefaces, but I am unsure how to get them on the computer and use them. Like M.C. Martin up there, I also get my inspiration from anywhere possible, often I am not even looking, it just hits.

Hello everyone. I'm from Norwalk (southern) California. I've been in the business since 1977! I remember back in the day when there was "hot type", from there it was IBM Compositor, Compugraphic Photo Typesetting, and in 1988 I bought my first Mac and wouldn't trade for PC anyday.

I LOVE TYPE and all that can be done with it!
I enjoy looking at all of your work.

Hello, all!
I'm ex-Los Angeles, living in Israel's Western Galilee just across the coastal highway from the Mediterranean shore.

I've always appreciated typography but have made only a few rare attempts at hand-lettering -- initially for my quilt labels (with several almost-finished quilts stuck at the label-design stage!), and recently as I'm transitioning into illustration.

Seeking a typography group on Flickr, I'm here now because of the responses on this discussion thread :-)

I'm looking forward to learning from you.
Cheers!
