    I always find myself skipping all these clichéd hipster calligraphy, and looking for something original in these Typography inspirations. That “BRIS” poster is really nice.

  • The lyric of Lana Del Rey is really amazing!

  • Amazing! I am so bad at Typo, but keep going to do something amazing like this! :)
