TypePrimerPosterOk, so this is embarrassing. I haven’t done this in quite some time.

Typehike.com. If you have’t checked it out yet, please do so. You’ll be happy you did.

Go ahead.

Go. Seriously. I’ll wait.

Ok.

Pretty cool, eh?

I’ve been reworking a project from a hackathon and it occurred to me, I should work on a type poster everyday. Yeah, roll your eyes. Another one of those 365 a day things. Well, I think it will be good for me. So I’m going to start on a typographic poster series of my own. A quote or phrase everyday.

Here are the 5 6 rules:

  1. They have to be based in typography.
  2. They have to be kerned.
  3. The quote or phrase has to have some meaning to me. A story. Something to write about.
  4. The paper size will be based on European standards. Poster size will be determined by subject.
  5. They have to utilize a historically credible design technique, principal, concept or methodology. For example the poster could mimic the styles of mid century swiss design, an old west apothecary sign or letterpress.
  6. I get one wildcard a month. I’m accepting suggestions.

There. There it is. Anyone care to join me?
