60 Amazing Typography-Based Posters

Designing a typography-based poster that actually works is not an easy task. With the spotlight turned towards the typeface itself, many different variables from placement to color to the chosen font all have to work together. Not everyone can pull it off, but when a designer is skilled in this type of work the results can be quite beautiful.

In this roundup, you will find a collection of 60 amazing typography-based posters. Some were chosen for their style, a few for their font choice and others were just plain witty.
