One Hour Typography

Friday, 17 December 2010

One of my HND 2 students, Rachel Patrick, has won the London Design Festival's one hour typography competition. The LDF asked designers to select a quote from a list of 80 quotes on design, and create a typographical poster in one hour.

After a huge response in entries, the LDF's William Shaw and Richard Wolfströme, designer and Board member of the International Society of Typographic Designers, chose five winners.

Rachel's entry took American designer Joe Sparano's quote 'Good design is obvious, great design is transparent', and came up with this -
