If you’re a designer with a particular penchant for typography and the German language (yes, that’s quite the combination), the Goethe-Institut has launched the design competition just for you. The institute is on the hunt for New Zealand-based design students and professionals to design their own alphabets.
It’s pretty straightforward. Simply design your all 26 letters of your alphabet (numbers are optional) and provide a sample of the alphabet letters spelling ‘Goethe-Institut’ using your alphabet letters.
You can submit digital or hand-drawn designs and entries close August 31. More info can be found here.
