One thing I’ve noticed with typography is you can never have too many references. Any project including typography could greatly benefit from an abundance of reference. Whether it’s to a specific style from the early 20th century, or just exploring ideas for one’s work, it’s just useful to have books, websites, and scraps of typography ripped out of media.
Whatever reason one needs references, if an artist happens to have a blog on Tumblr—or knows someone who does—it doesn’t hurt to check their typography tag.
Tumblr, like any other blogging website is full of mish-mash, but when used right can be a perfect library for one’s artistic needs.
Several artists post their work on tumblr, such as the ones below:
Any way you look at it, tumblr is a never-ending (especially thanks to infinite scroll) source for typographic reference. Even if you personally may not have a use for it, or don’t have a tumblr blog, it’s not a bad idea to suggest using it to another artist.
