The bi-annual, international award aims to show the potential of creative professionals across all areas of visual communication, offering them the opportunity to present themselves to a wider audience and an independent jury.
The competition is aimed at young creatives to already established graphic, web and fashion designers, architects, film producers, artists and also large agencies.
Created by type designer Nina Stössinger, FF Ernestine was born from the search for a versatile monolinear text typeface whose design could encompass seemingly opposite feelings. Stössinger wanted to develop a solution that would feel warm, but also serious; slightly feminine, but not too swirly-girly – charming and sturdy at the same time.
FF Quixo is the brainchild of Frank Grießhammer’s graduation project during his time at the Royal Academy of Art, in Den Haag. Exploring pointed-pen calligraphy, he decided to take on the style in a more casual manner, interpreting the model with different-sized brushes.
