The deadlines for our Typography 4 competitions have been extended until October 10, 2017. If you’re still sitting on your best work, consider submitting it to our Typeface Design or Type in Use competitions! Today, we’ll be focusing on our entries from Asia and Polynesia.
Above, we have “3D Typography Exhibition” (left) by long-time Graphis contributor Hoon-Dong Chung of Dankook University in South Korea, which was awarded Gold in our Design Annual 2013 and Platinum in our Poster Annual 2013.
Next to Chung’s work is “Stand No. 14” by Designers Brian Slade and Franziska Steinkohl at Insight Creative for their client Stand For Children from New Zealand. Their intent was to develop a typeface that represented the complex nature necessary to support New Zealand’s at-risk children. Using wave symbols, where the waves represent a sense of renewal and empowerment, Insight Creative created a type that perfectly captures the work of the organization, which can be used in Maori as well.
