Are you blessed with being able to speak another language? Well if so, it’s time to impress us in your native tongue by entering our universal type competition!
Have you ever looked at typography in another language and thought to yourself “that just looks so much better!”? Well here’s your chance to experiment in a different dialect. Get creative with an umlaut, put your own spin on a circumflex or get acquainted with kanji. You could even give a little airtime to a lesser used language (Cymraeg anyone?) or why not invent your own alphabet?
With our Shillumni hailing from just about every inch of the globe we thought it time to celebrate the universal language of design. We’re inviting you—our global graduate network to design a type-lock up in a language of your choice, all in celebration of the quote “Design is a Universal Language’.
