ALPHABATTLE – Z

by Beejay on February 14, 2011


ZCAPS THE YEAR-LONG ALPHABATTLE.

Or does it? Quite a few people over the past month have suggested … continuing this.

So, after asking around a little bit, it’s clear that people want to continue — with numerals, punctuation, ligatures, interrobangs, etc. So … yeah, let’s do it! (Ok, maybe not all that.) We’ll start with numbers, er, numerals.

First up is the Number One. (1 or One or No. 1 or Numero Uno or however you wish to interpret it).

You can submit your Number 1 by February 27 to be published February 28.

Now to the letter Z. Thanks to everyone for participating!

Dear Alphabattle fellows,

I’d like to congratulate you all for the wonderful job and to say that was an honor to share these galleries from A to Z with you. The anticipation of each round was an added pleasure and, find so creative and diverse approaches a, source of inspiration and enjoyment throughout this whole project.

Also my compliments to Brian ( the man behind the curtains ;-) for the initiative in promoting the Alphabattle 2.0. Thanks for that I had the opportunity to enjoy a great time trying to create unusual looking letters. Works that probably would not have been produced if I was not been challenged this way every 15 days along the last year.

All the best,
Ale(Z)x
