Christmas is over. We hope you got everything you wanted. We asked for one more fight before the year was over, but it never came. We don’t underst… hold on, someone’s knocking at the door. Well kiss my grits, it’s Mike Smith and James Anderson dressed in Santa suits! They say they got our request and they’re gonna fight right here on our front lawn! What thoughtful boys… Let’s show them how much we care by voting as they exchange gifts of pain by trying to knock out each other’s Christmas lights.
It’s been a great 2012, gang. We sure appreciate all of you voters and contributors. Next year is gonna be an exciting one for us, and we hope you’ll join us. Thanks again.
We’re 11.5 months into 2012, heading like comets toward the 13th year of the second millennium Anno Domini. If all of that sounds really important, that’s because it is. Everything that happens today is more meaningful than all days that came before it. Today’s fight is a weighty bout between two men who live each day like it’s their last. Chris Streger of the To Resolve Project savors every punch like a fine wine, and Greg Thomas always stops and smells the roses before he snuffs someone out. Every decision we make is important, so Carpe Ziem… seize the Z.
Our world is full of extraordinary wonders. In the American Northeast, the city of New York is a rich tapestry of magnificent natural elegance and cruel, brutish ferocity. We focus on the cunning Simone Noronha, seen using dense mazes of coffee shops and Ray’s Pizzas as camouflage. She stalks a mighty and regal Luke Shuman, who returns from a successful hunting campaign in the frozen section of the Bodega. This is a rare occurrence, two talented predators preparing for confrontation. But this landscape knows no mercy. Let’s watch and vote.

Not all fights have to be nasty and brutish, sometimes its better to slow down and beat each other to a pulp with a silky smoothness that can only come from deep, sweet lovin’ and years of typographic experience. Today’s fighters, Jeff Jarvis and Mads Burcharth, have that velvety violence in spades. One look in their eyes and after this fight, you’ll be wearing a scarlet letter for sure. Vote now and get lost in the passion.
There are 3,962 miles that separate our two challengers. But, in today’s brave age of digital-globalized-connectedness that gulf has been bridged. Now, Alex Perez can sit in his Madison, Wisconsin home sharpening pencils with his beard while Neil Rook fashions a T-square out of shin bones in London, England in preparation for an ornery overseas skirmish. So vote now no matter where on Earth you find yourself!
You thought the voting was over, but today you can celebrate your right to vote by voting again. This time there are no weighty issues to consider, no leaders of the free world to contemplate, and no talking heads to consult. You just have to choose between Doug Penick with his charming good looks, sturdy western gaze, and air of typographic prestige, and Trevor Rogers, a man charged with energetic youth, an infectious idealist, and a champion of progressive lettering. Just go with your gut, and know that answering C is always a safe bet.
For one night each year, ghastly letters crawl up from the deepest depths of the killed concept graveyard. These G’s have met their makers, and now so will you: Brett Stenson is a restless soul, a slave forever cursed to execute his client’s wicked demands, and Viet Huynh has gone mad from Frankensteining concepts into ungodly abominations. These two unholy hell spawns are spilling their guts for you, so don’t be a Halloweenie and vote now.
Like watching a lioness give birth to a bear, this fight is both beautiful and terrifying. Like a chainsaw-juggling supernova, Nick Misani is both talented and awe-inspiring. And like a world-renowned chef-turned-magician Calvin Sprague is masterful as well as spell-binding. Can these two men get any better? You’ll just have to watch and vote.
