The process of creating cool typography designs is not easy because you need to have a great design idea. In order to convert the idea to typography designers use any kind of material possible. One of those materials used for the creative typography is food. Food is cheap, you can buy it everywhere and it’s easy to manipulated for your needs. The result from the typography food can be amazing and that’s why designers use it in the crafting process. I love typography a lot and this post is devoted to food typography, just to show you that playing with food can be fun but also tasty.
