The advancement of technology opened the doors to artists and other creative people to try a new platform in designing. These result into outputs that could perfectly mimic the look of physical objects integrated into 3D works. That is not limited to architecture and interior design but it can also be used for other 3D rendering used for print and advertising. When we talk about print and advertising, you will surely think of typography too.
Yes, typography can also be rendered into realistic looking style by combining letters with objects related to it. We can see that in the works of Chris Labrooy. He is a freelance designer and illustrator based in UK. What makes his work impressive is his ability to create playful designs that would relay the message of the text merely by looking at the elements included in it. Chris also worked on various advertisements and even with huge companies and publishing where he was able to show his skills in 3D rendering. Scroll down and check on more works from Chris Labrooy:

Running shoes were the inspiration of this design with the soles of the shoes used to form the letters.
Summer Street Walk
While the other was for running, this one is for walking. The letters included shoe details, traffic symbols and even a stroller.
