It is time for another Typography contest! The theme of this contest will be…
Bring your Type to Life
This may sound abstract at first, but to keep the theme as open as possible, I choose a rather abstract title. There are many directions in which you can go. You could choose an anthropomorphic direction, where you breathe life into letters and give them human or other animate characteristics. Another route would be to create the letters out of living objects, such as plants or animals.
Which direction you choose, maybe even a third or fourth one, does not matter. What matters is that your letters are brought to life!
What kind of letters you bring to life, words, glyphs or sentences, is 100% up to you. This contest has a more visual approach, so you will not be judged on the creativity of the meaning you choose to give to the letters. However, don't rush it! Even one letter can appear completely different than another. Be wise with the letters, words or sentences you choose.
I hope this theme will be inspiring, to both Traditional and Digital Typographers, maybe even for Photo Manipulators, and even a Typography Beginner can create something awesome! There is no limitation on the media you use. You will have almost 2 months time to enter a submission, so I will post a lot of reminders
Let's get creative!
