    I don’t get the competition. Is it meant to be a logo-type only containing the words typeforyou or are you meant to design an entire typeface?

  4. Hello POWDAH,

    The competition for now is to create an original idea for a typeface using the word “typeforyou”. The winning entrie will get the Exclusive Volume 1 from Hype For Type and get the chance to finish the font with Hype For Type and probably sell it.

    What size does it need to be? I want to enter mine and win, if possible.

    Kerning on ‘Type for You’ on the image above is atrocious

    It would be nice if you outlined the requirements more. I have no idea what is expected of me. Am I supposed to simply design the letters in the words “Type For You” and present it as is, or am I to design a whole “package” around the lettering, for example present it as a poster or an animated piece, etc etc. How is it supposed to be submitted? Black on white, 500x500px? Do I need to make my submission stand out in ways other than the type design itself?

  8. @kurtis – We will be changing that with submissions soons 😉

    @mikael – All you have to do to enter the competition is to draw an original typeface and using for now the “type for you” words. If you’re a winner or even if you want to make the complete package that’s good too, but to enter the “type for you” is quite enough.
    The presentation mode, can be in any size or colors, we’re not thinking in nothing animated for now, but you can present it as a poster, explore your ideas on that.
