There is Nothing Funny About Comic Sans Contest & Silent Auction



Sure, this often over-used and somewhat tasteless font typically conjures thoughts of disgust in the design community. However, we're convinced that this cartoony type face can be used in ways that don't feel like a kick in the creative groin? Your task if you choose to accept: prove us right. 

Create an 11x17 poster utilizing Comic Sans in an interesting and unexpected way. Materials open to interpretation. Ready to create something fun? Submissions are FREE! Email and let her know you'll be participating in this event. 

Posters will be displayed at B:Hive on the night of the event and voted on by the public and judges. The winner will be announced that night and given a FREE month membership to the B:Hive, along with bragging rights, of course! There will also be a silent auction the night of the event, giving you an opportunity to extend the conversation with an audience in your home or office…or you might just want to hang a piece up because it’s so darn cool. We’re totally ok with that! There will also be other prizes, along with snacks, drinks and more!

All posters must be delivered or mailed to the event location by Thursday, February 27, 2014
