Publishers love to see the volume turned way UP on titles until they’re SHOUTING with demanding, bold typography. The digital thumbnail is the new storefront window, and as such, publishers often ask designers to ditch graphics in favor of colossal typography. This “trend” is nothing new and it’s probably not going anywhere soon.
It’s not easy to create an all-type cover that is ALSO interesting, distinct, and well-designed. Just filling the rectangular page with text is not enough. A good designer does this while making sure that not every cover with LOUD typography looks the same.
Here is a BIG collection of all-type covers, where typography reigns supreme and letters themselves have become the art. Explore the tag “loud text” for even more covers like these.
