The 2012 Conqueror Typographic Games
Conqueror, the premium paper brand from Arjowiggins Creative Papers, announces its “Typographic Games“,a creative challenge on the theme of sport. There is Gold, Silver and Bronze glory for the world’s fittest designers and a coveted ticket to the 2012 Olympics in London for the top medalist. The graphic design and typographic poster competition is open to creatives around the world and runs from November 2011 to April 2012. Entry is free and the only requirement is that their graphics incorporate the phrase “It’s not what you win, but how you conquer it”. Full competition details are available to download at: www.conqueror.com/typographicgames
Typographer Jean François Porchez will head the international jury of leading typographers and designers who will judge the entries and pick the medal winners. Porchez designed five bespoke “Conqueror” typefaces as part of the “It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It” award-winning campaign, which re-launched the Conqueror brand in 2010. Judging for the Typographic Games will take place in London in May 2012. In addition to the top prize VIP trip to the Olympic Games there are customised Nike trainers for five Silver medalists and international exposure for the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners; all will find fame through a special edition booklet distributed with an international design magazine and an exhibition in London in June 2012.
