This competition showcases more than just classic type designers: We include projects that feature great uses of type by any designer. We have beautiful handlettered work. And, of course, impressive typefaces built from the ground up.

No longer will typography be overlooked by design competitions. We’re here to recognize the art of type and reward the best designers of each category. With over 350 entries total, our judges chose the best of the best from around the world—from the U.S. and Canada, to Slovenia and The Netherlands.

Typography is two-dimensional architecture, based on experience and imagination, and guided by rules and readability.
