They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but what does it mean when a picture is literally made of words? For artist Scott Smith of Skahfee Studios it means he creates some amazing typography prints of our favorite pop culture icons.

He uses song lyrics, names, quotes, and phrases from franchises like Doctor Who and Game of Thrones to create stunning word art designs. This Avengers print for example was created using memorable quotes from the film. Smith’s been working in typography for about five years and told the MindHut words from songs and movie quotes have always inspired him.


“To express that love of quotes, I started creating prints in a more simple word-cloud layout to decorate my apartment. Pretty soon that turned into ‘what if I tried to make a picture with it? Ok, now what if I add color? What if I try to put it in perspective, what if, what if, what if...’ and here I am today,” he said.
