It's time for our favorite hour of the week again... Font Hour!!!
This time we will be opening font hour to all our friends and followers for a chance to win a limited edition print designed with the winning typeface. Here is how Font Hour will work: Send us the name of one font you think is exceptionally great by Friday (11th) at 8am. You can send them to email@example.com, leave a comment on our facebook fan page, or send a tweet to @orange_element.
On Friday we will print each submitted font and spread them across a table. We will weigh each ligature and x-height to determine the ultimate Font Hour champion and that chosen font will be used to design a series of posters for our ReStoreFront series hanging in our front windows. The submitter of the winning font will receive a smaller print of their favorite posters.
You can submit any font you like! In our August Font Hour Andy submitted a font made from packaged meat! Dig through your computer for fonts that you love but always forget to use or find something completely new. Choosing a font under $25 will increase your chances of winning; we believe even inexpensive fonts can be beautiful when paired with strong design principals.
We love Font Hour because it is a great excuse to look at different typefaces and helps avoid a mundane overuse of the more common typefaces. We will announce the winner Friday afternoon with photo's from the voting. Happy font hunting!
