Use letters or words instead of a picture to make a picture or cool looking effect using the text.

Shield, star, X, -. Those are characters like webdingz.

Better or worse than the GHXpert59 one?

 
Flag Post

Better. Love tire with wings.

Webdingz =/= typography.

Also, overlaying repeated text as a texture isn’t really typographic art, either.

EDIT:

This is something I did a long time ago as a proof of concept. It isn’t near-finished, and isn’t my submission. But Just as kind of an example of what typographical art typically is. Battle’s isn’t really typographic art, it’s just using a layer mask to put text over a logo.
