Use Your Typeface Knowledge for Fun, Profit

ub contest.jpg

It’s October, and we’re making such great progess on our Charles and Ray Eames Halloween costumes that we decided to come up with a way to get your creative juices flowing. After mediabistro.com scuttled our plan to gift each UnBeige reader with a Fornasetti “Themes and Variations” wall plate of his or her choosing, we settled on a contest. All you have to do is answer the following simple, three-pronged question by e-mailing your response to unbeige AT mediabistro.com (subject line: Contest!) no later than next Thursday, October 9.

You have been tasked with naming a) a dog, b) a band, and c) a child after commercially available typefaces. What name(s) would you choose?

We’ll scrub all entries of identifying information and choose two grand prize winners, each of whom will receive a pair of tickets to mediabistro.com’s design star-studded Editorial Design 2.0 panel on October 15. If said winners cannot attend the event (for reasons of geography or otherwise), we’ll devise a suitable replacement prize. Winners will be announced here next Friday. Now put on your thinking fedoras and get to it.
