TypeFight Live: Lucha de Letras
An epic alphabetic competition where only one can emerge victorious.
Just as SXSW rumbles back into town, AIGA Austin brings back their typography smackdown with "TypeFight Live: Lucha de Letras!" TypeFight is an epic alphabetic competition where only one can emerge victorious. Two designers face off in a full-scale wrestling ring as the crowd cheers and jeers, fighting for typographical glory in the Letter-Ring. Join us in the grandstands as Austin’s best keep it (mostly) above the belt, stay on the ropes, go down for the count, and block/duck/dodge to create the single best letterform as VOTED ON BY YOU, the audience. Come get a seat if you can, enjoy a few drinks, and egg on your favorite TypeFighter amidst all the howling excitement of hand-lettering, trash-talking, and luchadoresque pageantry.
Limited capacity—advance tickets recommended. The fight will take place from 7:30 to 9:30, with voting beginning at 8:30. Drinks and snacks will be provided. Folding chairs may not be thrown but you can shake them in the air. AIGA Austin is the area chapter of the professional organization for graphic design nationally. www.aigaaustin.org
