As a lover of both typography and Palm Springs, it was a no brainer to team-up with Palm Springs Modernism Week for a cool contest.
Our prize this week is a pair of tickets to the Silver Factory Gala on February 15th (a value of $250). Come and celebrate Andy Warhol’s notorious studio, where decadence and impropriety reigned supreme. For those of you who are new around here, the #ModernismProject is our first-ever mobile initiative encouraging the global community of modernism fans to express visually what modernism means to them. This week’s theme is #typography.
Go forth and capture images of vintage signs and ephemera that inspire modernism. Anything from roadsigns and posters to cereal boxes and soda cans. Typography is everywhere, so we want to see it in your community.
Get the gist? You need to capture some great typography that reflects modernism, upload it to your Instagram and hashtag it #typography and #ModernismProject. I’d like to suggest that everyone, despite your geographic location, should participate in the contest. It’ll be awesome to see what the readers around the world come up with, though I’ll admit that if you live in let’s say Japan, you might not win this contest. But how cool will it be to see a beautiful collection of modern typography?
