Negative space (wiki), in art, is the space around and between the subject(s) of an image. The use of negative space is a key element of artistic composition. One of the well known example of negative space is FedEx‘s logo which displays an arrow between letters E and x.
Beside typography, negative space (previous article) is also widely used in photography and product design. We have featured several quite interesting articles talking about it. But in this article, we will show you some creative “wordmarks” from Netherlands-based graphic designer Sander Flink.
In this project, Flink makes relatively limited selection of letterforms memorable through his clever use of negative space which illustrates the meaning of the word. Scroll down to see some wordmarks by Flink and challenge yourself to find all the jewelry hidden by the negative space.
