This is one of those ideas that we’re surprised hadn’t come about sooner. Designers Drew Roper, Ryan Paule and Bryan Butler started this project to “distract from their day-to-day grind.” They basically arrange weekly “fights” between two designers, who are asked to create a typographic treatment of the same character and then have their final designs voted on to determine whose is best. The site is actually on hiatus right now for a redesign, but check out the fights that have already happened. Can’t wait to see “Round 2” soon.
