Conceived and created by andré felipe back in 2008, Typo/Graphic Posters is a curated collection of "inspiring" quality posters with a strong focus on typography and expressive graphical compositions.
The works represented come from artists and graphic designers from all over the world and which "challenge type, colors and shapes to express a message".
For each selected author you can see an horizontally laid out collection of his visual posters, which can be clicked and enlarged, and commented via a Facebook plugin appearing at the end of the set.
Comments. A great curated visual collection, where you can truly find inspiration at every step. Every single set included in it, has been rigorously vetted before being accepted. This is not something you can check, but if you look contained in this collection, you can tell right away that the quality you see is not fruit of an accident.
This type of content is so good and valuable, it stays evergreen even if it's not updated.
When curating content, even if it is not of a visual nature, a curator should strive to achieve the same level of quality and long-lasting value of such collections.
Free to access.

Banish kerning calamities and learn to love leading with our expert tips and tricks for perfect typography.
In this article, we're going to reveal some typography tips and tricks that you can use to boost your design skills and impress friends and colleagues. But before you even begin getting into the intricacies of setting type in the likes of InDesign, it's important to know the basics.
If you need a refresher on type terms then check out our article What is typography? Learn the basic rules and terms of type!

Kerning is the spacing between specific pairs of letters, whereas tracking works across a range of characters or even paragraphs or whole documents.
Kerning is a fine art - and one you can quickly get good at using both InDesign's tools and some tricks in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. In InDesign or Illustrator, you can adjust kerning by selecting the Type tool and clicking on the gap between two characters, before holding down Alt/Opt and using the left and right arrows to adjust the space between them. By default the increment applied with each press of the arrow is 20 thousandths of an em, but you can adjust this preference for tighter control.
Once you've got the hang of that, read on to discover how you can take your typography skills to the next level...
