My second attempt at a typography graphic. I laid out the type in Inkscape, then finished the image in GIMP.
Several aspects of this graphic are designed to imply belonging.
I chose a serif typeface. Note that all the letters except the O have serifs, yet the O is an integral part of the typeface and the words could not exist without it. The blue letters also surround and hold the green letters.
In the line graphic at the bottom, the tendrils coming out of the curvy, round green circle (a relative of the O) intertwine with the tendrils coming out of the sharp, pointy blue triangles (relatives of the serif letters) showing they are inextricably tied together.
Though the letters and line graphic are in front of the textured background, the texture on them is the same as, and a continuation of, the texture of the background, thereby binding the letters to the background.
There is a subtle oval vignette, echoing the shape of the O, that encloses the graphics.
In summary, though you are unique, you belong to the group.
