Mouth-Watering Food Typography

It’s no secret that food is considered one of the cardinal sins. Not only is food delicious, but it is also appealing and inspiring. That’s why food photography has been on the rise, especially where food is used in typography. Restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries and supermarkets all use food typography in various advertising and promotional materials to induce desire in their customers.

Arranging different foods into a character or a coherent word requires much effort, patience and scene setup for the right lighting. What if I told you that there is an easier way to create food typography graphics without spending a dime on food? All you need is Art Text for macOS graphic design software with the prime task of creating text effects and typography graphics.

Embossed Text Effects

Shading Materials is a special 2D text fill that creates bumped and embossed text effects. Use any of the 140 materials supplied, or create your own shading materials in the advanced editor. Combining Shading Material with Distortion effects that change the font shape will provide a design resembling liquid food like honey, ketchup, etc.
