A big thank you to everybody who entered the Playtype 2017 Calendar Giveaway on Collate over the last week and I am pleased to announce we have our winners:
Oliver Shilling [@oshilling]
Martijn Maas [@martijnmaasnl]
Don't worry if you didn't win here as you might still have won over at Playtype as part of their Instagram Giveaway, and so be sure to head on over there and find out. If the two Collate winners could send their shipping details to firstname.lastname@example.org to claim their prize.
I would also like to especially thank Therese and the team at Playtype for putting up the prizes and organising the giveaway. ;)
It's Friday which can mean only one thing, time for another Collate Giveaway thanks to the very fine folk over at Copenhagen based type foundry Playtype. Up for grabs is one of 2 sets of the 2017 Playtype calendar shown above which Playtype have just launched. Be sure to head on over to the Playtype Store and check out some of their other wares too.
To be in for a chance to win all you have to do is 'RT' or 'Favourite' the giveaway tweet which can be found at @thisiscollate. Competition closes on Wednesday 26th October at 3pm (GMT) and the winners will be chosen at random on Thursday 27th October.
Good luck! — Held og Lykke!
Hamish from MuirMcNeil has been in touch with news of their recent visual identity work for TypeCon 2016, the convention of the American Society of Typographic Aficionados, one of the largest and most significant events in the international design calendar. As Hamish explains;
'Our design was a flexible, modular system that worked cohesively across a wide range of applications. The result was a powerful visual identity using geometric typefaces and neon colours in a series of playful exchanges between form and counter-form.'
