50 Mind-Blowing Artworks Where PinUp Art Meets Typography

StacySummers Inspiration May 04, 2012

How to drive more traffic to your content? It goes without saying that a WORD has a powerful influence on the way of thinking and a good typography works miracles but... it is not always enough. And when all known methods have been tried, we begin to invent the wheel. We begin to combine incongruous!

Today I want to show you how two completely different but at the same time very influential in their own niche parts of art can interact. I'm talking about Typography and Pin up. Surprised?

Pin up as an essential part of the American popular art has spread into many types of visual content. Despite the fact that Pin up was coined in the 30's it is still very popular and many designers and artists try to use its eye appeal manner in their works.

I don't know who has combined Typography and Pin up at the first time, but I know exactly that the result was adorable and today we can find the symbiosis of Typography and Pin up almost everywhere!

Posters, ads and even web layouts designed in vintage or retro style become more attractive when pin up illustrations and cool typography are added. In order to ensure the veracity of my words scroll down and check the artworks I've gathered.
