Winner of the crappy font/logo competition
From 13 entries there emerges a winner! This was really difficult as they were all really good and worthy of recognition. Initially, my idea was to choose my favourite on the basis of its ability to make me smile. Unfortunately for me, they all did. So the winner was chosen on the basis of my own opinion out of a strong field:
Out of all the crappy fonts used, I guess any of the Frakturs are the most abused. I love the way thay the font has become synonymous with gangsta culture (kulcha?) and then re-assigned to the most kitsch of worldwide brands.
This next competition is (as you may have already guessed!) to come up with the designers ‘perfect shortcut’ key! Just take a pic of your keyboard (or use my image above) and use a bit of know how to insert a shortcut key that graphic designers would use. It could be serious, funny or ridiculous.
Make sure that they are no larger than 276×276 pixels and 72dpi and named in this format skinnerchristypo.jpg (obviously using your own name!) or .png or .gif and email them to me for inclusion. If you are sending more than one image, please add a number to them also. Please note that if you are sending me images, then you are giving me your consent to publish them on the web. Don’t send them if you don’t want them uploading. These images will only be used for this purpose and my own personal jocularity.
I’ll pick a winner on Monday 3rd August… I’ll custom make another sketchbook for the winner. Best of luck, and pass the word around…
