Type Battle 40 // Typophile's 10th Anniversary
0

This week's battle: Draw the number 10, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Typophile.

To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we are inviting everyone to draw the number 10! After collecting the best entries, we plan to incorporate them back into our logo for this year and then perhaps even create some limited edition artifacts for the community.

Winner take all, no holds barred. May the best designer win.

// REQUIREMENTS

- Solution must be typographic and contain only the numerals "1" and "0".
- Numerals must be custom drawn. No use of existing fonts!
- Image size: 550 width x 400 height. 72 dpi*
- Color: Black and White
- Format: PNG, GIF or JPG (Preferred in that order. Make sure there are no spaces in the name)
- Please keep an EPS or other vector formatted file on hand in the event we choose your design.

*Please try to keep your file sizes to a minimum! 50k per file max.

// ABOUT TYPOPHILE TYPE BATTLES

This is your chance to flex your type muscles on a weekly basis. You have one week to create and submit your entry. Anyone may submit a design response to the challenge. You may enter as often as you wish. Post anytime. Critiques and comments are welcome throughout the game, from participants and spectators alike. Smack talk is encouraged.

As with any street battle, there is no panel of judges and no prize — only the ability to call yourself the best on the block.

10 / t (for typophile!)

Solution must be typographic and contain only the numerals "1" and "0".
Erm... would you believe this is a discretionary ligature?

Fill the white areas with the background color and it should start looking even more interesting.

Let’s see. Any rules I didn’t bend? Eh, no.

@keady I’m always a sucker for concentric rings. Reminds me a bit of an entry of mine from an earlier Type Battle.

@riccard0 I really like those. Nicely done.

That was just the adjective I was going to use. Nice work!

I also like gingerbeardman's, Mans's first one, and keady's.

Sorry eliason for not acknowledging your creation as inspiration for my last one!

Also, Grant’s one remembers me of eastern arabic numerals. And since the rules state: - Solution must be typographic and contain only the numerals "1" and "0"., I think would be good to see some other than western arabic numerals:

Agreed dezcom - the moderators and the people that "be" need to be congratulated for allowing people like me, and all others who want to express their opinions, latitude. It's a wonderful site.

ihoff, I did not copy your black circle idea- after reading about the contest and starting my design, I scrolled down and there was your nice design!

Vladimir, thanks for the comment. I wouldn't think it was a copy, it's very different. But, you've definitely inspired my entry – let's call it a joint one, shall we?
