Michael Cina of of Michael Cina Associates wanted to remind everyone that the final due date for the 2010 Typecon Poster show is August 5th of this week. I know that only gives you two days to crank out your masterpiece but the clock is ticking. So far there have been some really great entries. You do not have to create something entirely new either. If you have something out there that you want to show the world and have judged by some big names in the business, then this is your chance.
You can learn more about this year’s Typecon event at the Typecon website. And in order to enter your poster for the show please download this form and fill it out to send in with your submission. Good luck!
The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) will presenting its annual letterfest conference Typecon from August 17th – 22nd at the Century Plaza Hyatt Regency in Los Angles. Typecon is the largest conference of it’s kind in the United States focused on typography. This years conference will be featuring more than 70 of the brightest names in type and design. You can expect dozens of workshops, presentations, panel discussions, networking events, tours, and social gatherings that will form a typographic adventure that will inspire you and your approach to typography for years afterward. You can learn more about the event at the Typecon website.
As a part of the conference every year there is an exhibit of the best typographic posters… this is where you come in. We are looking for poster submissions that are typographic in nature. Every year the turnout has been overwhelming in quality and in content. In the past the poster shows have done things like travel the world or been acquired by an art gallery. This year we expect the best show yet. The entries will be curated by the highly regarded graphic design and typographer Michael Cina of Michael Cina Associates. This is your chance to have your work seen by some of the brightest and biggest names in the industry of type and design.
Your typographic poster can be literal or abstract. In order to enter, you can click here to download the PDF submission form and complete the entry portion of the second page. After that, you ship your poster and you are ready to go. Changethethought will be covering the turnout so you can expect to hear more from us as both the exhibition and conference unfolds.
We can’t wait to see what you produce.
YWFT is onces again sponsoring this year’s TypeCon 2008 in Buffalo, New York. TypeCon is the leading conference in America on all that is type. YWFT is also curating a poster exhibit at TypeCon. They are currently seeking the best poster work that has excellent type. Type can be the main focus of the poster or minor (that seems a little strange). They will be showing the best submissions and the poster show will also most likely be traveling like their last TypeCon poster exhibition. They are currently seeking as many submissions as possible.
