Via the HOW Magazine blog: Designer Denise Bosler, author of Mastering Type, just announced the “A-Z Fall Type Hunt Instagram Contest.” It’s an Instagram challenge to find all 26 letters of the alphabet somewhere out in the wild during the month of November. Participants will receive a daily email as to what letter to find next.
Submit your typographic designs for consideration to be included in the 4th edition of the book, Type Rules! The designer’s guide to professional typography by Ilene Strizver, published by John Wiley & Sons. Click the link for more info.
Musician and composer Martin Schruegger made a very special typography signage-inspired birthday card for his friend. Printed by Moo.com.
