I love AdAge, and following them on Twitter gives me even more inspiration for the future. These ads were found on Creative Bloq. This ad was created for Expedia, based off of the
I love it when people add typography into everyday things. Salt and sand are both great examples. I remember seeing an article with words spelled out in rolled pretzel dough.
