background info

Silent judo battle, part 2
A type design competition with sand, where the essence is to impress others with your lettering by battling in words.

One competition, one battle. Man against women. Boys against girls. No physical contact, just create typography. Speed matters, every participant gets 15 minutes to create his piece of type, he has a couple of rounds every day to prove that his type is more mind blowing than the typographic pieces made by others. Practice your lettering skills. Become a type designer in a week. Make your lettering on the beach, the sea will take the lettering away after a while, and prepares a perfect blank field of sand, ready for new lettering! Go go go.
