Be a part of Typeface! Send us your Typeface-inspired artwork. If we love it, we’ll put it on the Typeface DVD – and send you a free copy!
Kartemquin Films invites designers, artists, filmmakers and typographers to submit artworks inspired by the award-winning documentary Typeface. As the film has traveled the world these past few months, many viewers have already created some amazing artwork related to the film. Now it’s our turn to celebrate you! We’ll be displaying the posters, videos and designs you’ve made on the Typeface website, and will have a selection of our favorites on the upcoming Typeface DVD (out on May 28th – pre-order starting April 28).
Act fast! To be eligible for the DVD, we need to receive your art by Midnight, May 3rd. After that date, we won’t be able to consider you for the DVD, but we’ll still display our favorite works on the Typeface website if you’d like to send them to us.
Be inspired! We are open to works in any media as long as they echo the themes of the film and explore the convergence of contemporary design and traditional techniques. Maybe you’d like to design a new letterpress poster for an upcoming screening, make a mash-up of our trailer, or shoot a video that illustrates our tagline of “Great characters, both wooden and human.” Check out some previously submitted works on this page and in the Typeface store.
Typeface on DVD
A limited edition run of the Typeface DVD will be available exclusively on the Typeface website from May 28th in advance of a wide release later in 2010. The limited edition DVD features extra scenes and a letterpressed woodtype poster designed by Hamilton Wood Type Museum Artistic Director Bill Moran.

2. Send your Typeface-inspired creation to firstname.lastname@example.org either as a link or an attachment. Photos should be high resolution (jpeg, tiff, bmp or gif of at least 400 dpi).
