Nautical Typography

Typography, to put it simply, is the art of print.  We are surrounded by typography everyday of our lives, weather it be newspapers, greeting cards, magazines, blogs. etc. Graphic designers, web developers as well blog designers,  all use  amazing typography to come up with  fantastic designs for clients that are not only unique, but  aesthetically pleasing to the eye.Careful consideration is given to the type of font and  the placement of each letter and word to create a one of a kind design.   These    artists below have created some very clever pieces of nautical art that I just love.
