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.

Detroit-based, College for Creative Studies senior Meg Jannott began a creative journey about 8 months ago to brand the U.S. presidents. With election season coming to a close, it’s more clear than ever that modern elections are about branding… an ad blitz if you will, just like you’d see for any given product or Hollywood movie. Presidents of the past didn’t necessarily leave behind very memorable visual identities, so Jannott took some liberties and invented some. With a bit of research, Jannott capitalized on some historical characteristics to define each president typographically. Makes for a really compelling series… she’s clearly a very talented designer with a great eye for typography. Now in the home stretch, Jannott only has a few more to go. Really well done, we look forward to the remaining designs. Now go vote!
