Go. Seriously. I’ll wait.

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:
- They have to be based in typography.
- They have to be kerned.
- The quote or phrase has to have some meaning to me. A story. Something to write about.
The paper size will be based on European standards.Poster size will be determined by subject.
- 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.
- I get one wildcard a month. I’m accepting suggestions.
There. There it is. Anyone care to join me?
