Brian Jaramillo uses texture to bring typography to life

Typography inspiration can be seen almost anywhere. From the shop front on your local high street to the street sign above your head, there are all kinds of amazing fonts to be found if you look hard enough.

Brian Jaramillo (opens in new tab) of Agency 26 (opens in new tab) is a designer with a passion for type and lettering who shares his awesome experiments in custom-made letting on his Tumblr site, Type & Texture. (opens in new tab) These typefaces are mainly created from scratch in Adobe Illustrator (opens in new tab), before adding the all-important textures.

The site is a fantastic source of inspiration, with fonts depicted in a number of brilliant ways. It's all about the textures here, proving that the smallest touches can make the biggest of differences.
