Typography Appreciation Month – Weekend Challenge – Monograms

Monogram Weekend Challenge

Welcome to the second Weekend Challenge for Typography Appreciation Month. This weekend, your challenge is to design something monogram-related. This is a pretty broad subject, so be creative! The only rule is that it has to include typography in some form, although if you could figure out how to do a monogram without using typography, I’d like to see that too! Follow along on facebook for some inspirational ideas all weekend long! When you’ve completed your project, simply post a photo and brief description of your creation to the TYPOGRFX facebook page. You’ll have until 9pm Sunday, August 11th to add your project. I’m looking forward to seeing your creations and working on something myself!

Typography Appreciation Month – Weekend Challenge – Wreaths!

Weekend Challenge: Wreath

Grab the hot glue guns and fire up your creative skills! It’s our first Weekend Challenge for Typography Appreciation Month. This weekend, your challenge is to create a wreath. It can be any interpretation of a wreath, just so long as it includes typography in some form or fashion. Follow along on facebook for some inspirational ideas all weekend long! When you’ve completed your project, simply post a photo and brief description of your creation to the TYPOGRFX facebook page. You’ll have until 9pm Sunday, August 4th to add your project. When I have everyone’s projects in, I’ll post them to Pinterest for everyone to share. Thank you for playing along and have fun with your projects!

Celebrate Typography Appreciation Month!

AN OFFICIAL PROCLAMATION

Over the past few years, typography has been a growing trend. Now, more than ever, typography is hot. It appears in all aspects of life – home decor, fashion and more. With its simple, universally recognized forms and shapes, typography speaks to the people and for the people which utilize its graphic nature to adorn every kind of surface known to man.

It is with that, that I, Tosha Jackson, creator and designer of TYPOGRFX custom word art, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the blogosphere of the United States, do hereby proclaim August 2013 as Typography Appreciation Month. I call upon the people of the blogosphere and social media realms to join me in celebrating typography in all its forms. Share your projects, your inspirations and your aspirations as it pertains to typography. Challenge yourself to new projects. Celebrate the products, artists and bloggers you love. And most of all, have fun!

Welcome to August – Typography Appreciation Month! I came up with this fun concept when I realized that August had no major holidays. Aside from the winding down of summer and back-to-school hustle, it’s generally just a hot month. So I thought, why not celebrate one of the hottest trends during the hottest month? I have partnered with several folks to bring together this month-long event, which will include fun weekend challenges, tutorials on how to make your own typography-inspired decor, our favorite pins, and even a give-away or two!

My biggest partner and newest friend who will be helping me celebrate typography is Ariean with onekriegerchick blog. Ariean and I were “e-troduced” by Dustin, who built both of our websites. Turns out, we live very close to each other and have a ton in common!
