Silent judo battle, part 01:
Salsburg, March 2006

A type design competition with snow, where the essence is to impress others with your lettering by battling in words.

One competition, one battle. Man against women. Boys against girls. No physical contact, just create typography. Speed matters, every participant gets 15 minutes to create his piece of type, he has a couple of rounds every day to prove that his type is more mind blowing than the typographic pieces made by others. Practice your lettering skills. Become a type designer in a week. Make your lettering on the snow, the wind and snowing will take the lettering away after a while, and prepares a perfect blank field of snow, ready for new lettering!


...já dá para aumentar a curiosidade em relação ao de cá.
