It’s here! The Typism: Book 2 is out! I feel like I’ve been waiting and so excited for this for so long! If you’re not familiar, Typism is an Australian based Typography Inspiration Conference that is held every year in April. In addition to this conference, Typism publishes a book with handlettered typography, where they open up submissions for anyone to enter, and then, 193 finalists are selected to be a part of the final published book.
Although fairly young still, Typism published their first book last year which was a HUGE success and sold out. After seeing it, I knew I wanted to try and submit some work to see if I could make the cut! So I submitted these two pieces below. Both in a black, and a white version, that I thought would be suitable for the book. After about a month long wait, I was notified that our HIBRID + 5 Points piece “Take Creative Liberties” had been selected to be a part of Book 2! SO EXCITING!!!

Typism also has a fun feature they’ve made up to showcase the designers even further by establishing the #typismbookselfie hashtag, and Typism then features them on Instagram to its following community!
