Free Typefaces & Type Subscriptions Up For Grabs

Wonderful The Type Foundry have just launched featuring a growing number of new and beautiful typefaces. Curating, creating and commissioning interesting typefaces for use both online and offline typography is about to get sexier. To celebrate they are kindly offering lucky Design Ark followers some great giveaways. Super nice of them.

Prizes:

1st – 5 typefaces for desktop use + a ‘large’ subscription to use the typefaces online for a year.

2nd – 3 typefaces for desktop use + a ‘medium’ subscription to use the typefaces online for a year.

3rd – 1 typeface for desktop use + a ‘small’ subscription to use the typefaces online for a year.

The Competition:

Let’s cut a long story short.

The Design Ark and The Type Foundry are challenging you to a 6 word story. Inspired by Ernest Hemingway who, in the 1920’s, was challenged by his colleagues to write a complete story in just six words. He was said to have called his story – “For sale: baby shoes, never worn” – his best work. Now is your turn to get your creative cap on and take up the challenge.

Follow @The_Design_Ark and @TheTypeFoundry and tweet us your best 6 word story.

The competition closes next Thursday – 3rd November at 10am UK time when a lucky winner will be picked by the very talented judging panel. Good Luck – time starts … now!
