Alphabet of the Countries is a non-commercial project by art director Pavel Zertsikel at Zergutdesign Studio. The idea was to make a bunch of hand-lettered logotypes, which represent our notion of a particular country.
He inspired this idea when he came across the book “The Alphabet and Elements of Lettering” which analyzes the alphabet and compares letters to human organisms.
We have heard these memorable sayings like “A good sketch is better than a long speech” or “A picture is worth a thousand words”. Sometime, the most complicated issue and matter can be simplified and expressed over a single image, but today I want to show you something different, a hybrid of both.
The images below are the examples of very unique approach to portrait illustrations. They are the mixture of both images and typography. The creative manipulation of font types, sizes and keywords can form a great portrait artwork.
