Villatype Project Number One

Okay, I've wanted to do this for some time now. I would like to add another element of interactivity to this blog. A call to action.

I am inviting you to create a banner for the blog, and I will post them randomly (as you can see I have been changing the banner with images from the blog already).

There are only two rules:
1. the banner should measure 56 picas wide by 12 picas high.
2. There must be a hed reading Villatype and a dek reading: A record and discussion of typography in the public domain

You can use any typefaces of your choice. I am okay with changing my original Villatype hed (set in Odile) because it will be elsewhere in the sidebar. You can use images, patterns, type only, it's up to you. I would prefer if it reflects the theme of "type found outside" but feel free to experiment and be creative.

That's it! I hope you will send me stuff to post!

I have some other Villatype projects in the works but for now let's see how this goes...

Hi Mandy, What do you think about posting all the banners on this page? Be nice to see them all together?
