Vintage Typography Inspiration Lettering



Vintage Typography Inspiration Lettering , The idea of learning from different vintage advertising memorabilia is not a new one, after all creative lettering artists, graphic designers and typographers have sough inspiration from vintage labels , tin advertising and advertisement typography for a long time. Here I will share a collection of my favorite typefaces and typography layouts for lettering inspiration , Free Printable Labels for Typography Inspiration, Lettering Artists , Typographers, Art Journals and anyone designing Lettering Styles Alphabet Forms , Free Printable Vintage Designs for Graphic Designers

Do you have a favourite Vintage Typography Inspiration Style ? How about Medieval lettering that has a coarse outline, or gothic style lettering found in many ancient manuscripts ? The Victorians had a particular aesthetic when it came to ornate advertising typography often cramming lots of different written information into relatively small spaces like soap packaging, tea tins and matchboxes.

Collecting a moodboard of vintage advertising memorabilia can help focus a particular idea for your own lettering project. Having recently taken a skillshare class with Mary Kate McDevitt called Vintage Lettering I was inspired to start my own collection of interesting labels, advertisements, lettering samples and typography inspiration. Feel free to share these on your own pinterest boards or follow the download instructions below to add them to your computer harddrive

To download Milliande's Art Portfolio Ideas Reference Photos,Free cool Textures ,Clipart, Architecture Sketch Book and Architecture Drawings, Arts and Crafts Project Printables 

  • right click on reference photo and look for the " Save as" command on your windows or mac option panel ( Do no use the copy command as some of these free clipart's contain transparent background layers that can convert into a false black image in the back, instead use save as command)
  • save the art portfolio ideas and reference images , as well as free cool textures for artists file onto your computer harddrive ( TIP: create a folder for your all your images, e.g. kids coloring pages,educational cliparts, cool textures etc so you can easily search for them on your hard drive
  • some computers may also have the option to right click then choose " Open in a new Tab" which lets you print straight from there without having to save ..:-)
  • most of our clipart are best suitable for light coloured website backgrounds due to the fine linear pixelating on dark backgrounds.. so bear in mind when using on your blog

Vintage Typography Inspiration Lettering

Here an overview of the vintage labels found on this page, scroll down to find another collection.

TIP: when designing your own lettering projects keep a sample swatch of color combinations that strike you as working well. To mimic a particular vintage style it is not only the vintage lettering alphabet styles that work but also the slightly muted tones of color, the interesting combinations from faded blue to fire engine red . Let yourself go on a little brainstorm session , just choosing what appeals to you , rather than narrowing it down to soon . Play in your sketchbook and see what arises.

I love the way the color combination seems to suggest an earthy tone with a wheat color where the goat and wheatsheaf symbols indicate the products origin.

This is a German vintage beer label  which features a male goat called Bock .. there is a type of beer in germany called Bockbier. A very nationalistic color scheme brings the point across that it is a german bier as the color combinations are the same as the german flag ( Bier Etikette antik)

I am intriqued by the notion of universal consciousness and choose to peek closely at the small particles that make up existence.

Human and living form cell biology, the interplay of microcosm and macrocosm, quantumphysics and the spiritual connection to the Self all nurture me with an endless stream of inspiration.

The female form and its nature of being, the beauty of motherhood, viewing the world in fragments rather than wholes and the palpable energy exchange and communication between them are central themes in my artwork.

I enjoy making the invisible visible and creating openended visual artworks that invite the viewer to explore deeper within their own layers of perception.

Contemporary Mixed media art techniques provide a rich playground for my artistic impulses and allow room for an individual approach to the multilayered facets of my artwork.
