Design with Type

25th April 2014 by Jon

Hello designers, typography nerds, and newbies! This is a fun challenge just about anyone can do. We want you to work that creative muscle and create some type-based artwork for a chance to win MOOlah and a classy Behance Dot Grid Journal.

We want to see what you can do with some type characters used in this somewhat unorthodox manner. Every designer starts with a simple brief, so here’s yours:
create something new using any font or combination of fonts, symbols or any part of type characters.

And in case you need some inspiration, why not check out artist Tiago Pinto’s work who inspired us to make our own little character:

You can create the image digitally or kick it old school and cut and paste some clippings of letters and symbols to create your image. Don’t feel limited to creating a face – see what we did there? – your final piece of artwork could be anything; animals, buildings, cars; let your imaginations run wild! The winning submission will be the most creative use of type, as picked by the MOO design team.

Submit your image to competitions@moo.com with the subject line ‘Design with Type’ and your name by April 30th at 11:59pm (GMT) to be considered!
