ASCII art (or text art) is a means of adding imagery through characters. YouTube comments can often be chalked full of text art, from whales asking you to subscribe to their channel to the omnipresent Facebook like thumb. Text art can be a fun way to add pizzazz to your website. Take Mozilla’s art that appears when you right-click and select “View Source.”

DIY Text Art

In that vein, we’ve added some text art to our WordPress website. It just took a simple modification to our WordPress theme’s header.php file. You do not need to know how to code. You can first Google already created art or create your own custom ASCII art by visiting this website. See our instructional video above to see the step-by-step instructions on how we did it.

For another fun DIY project, add some sexy icons to your web pages with this icon font set.
