Creating a beautiful and clever logo is hard. But with a master's degree in design and 15 years of experience in the industry, Mustafa Ömerli has perfectly mastered the art of representing ideas. To show off his skills, Mustafa has been creating typography logos for random words. Parent. Tunnel. Disability. Whatever he's portraying, Mustafa seems to always pinpoint the essence of that particular word and it's truly captivating.

"With these typography logos, I'm trying to show examples of what I believe is good design," Mustafa from Istanbul, Turkey, told Bored Panda. "It's all about function, aesthetics, and clever ideas."

His motto is 'positive mind, negative space.' "In my works, you can feel the positivity and see the negative space."

Web developer and graphic designer James George said that viewers like images with negative space because they don’t have to work too hard to get it: "A healthy balance between great negative space and intrigue will entice the viewer to spend extra time looking at [a] design."

"Your viewers will be more likely to remember the design’s intended message via the use of creative imagery," George added.

"When I'm creating something like this, my mind is working spontaneously but my design process is carefully planned," Mustafa said. "My approach to this typography logo project usually starts when I pick a word. I then try to truly understand its meaning. After that, I just come up with an idea to express this meaning."

This is especially funny if you speak Italian because we say "grassetto" for "bold" font and it means "fatty".

This actually took me a few seconds because in my country (Norway), we have three extra letters and this one looks a lot like the last one. It could have been written in a fancy way.

These are all so extraordinarily simple that you truly have to be very good at what you are doing in order to come up with them.

LOL I thought it was a little sword pointing downwards at first. "Don't mess with my daughter..."
