Let's spin back up a community favorite; the Type Battle! Because there's no better way to refine your craft than to get hands-on.
This week's battle: Winter Type
Do you ever gaze wistfully at snow-capped type on the packaged ice dispenser? Now's your chance to elevate the genre.
Winter brings cold climates and precipitation—rain, snow, ice, sleet. Design five letters of a font that represents winter best.
Winner take all, no holds barred. May the best designer win.
