    I never get sick of looking at typography beautifully applied as the feature of a design layout.

    My favourites here are The Orb, Claude Garamond and Las Cuidades Invisibles.

    Nice selection of works although the abuse of baroquisms with vectorial frills should hopefully come to an end soon (too much of it everywhere).

    how do you do these?
    is it a program you use?
    or just free hand or what?

      you can use programme to do like these project such as:
      illustrator- Photoshop and another programmes
      and we can do that by free hand but by programme will be more accurate
