Too obvious? Nah.
To be honest, I think this is a perfect way to end a typographic match. The message is simple, succinct, and pleasant. The characteristics of the final typeface integrate elements from nearly every one of the volleys. A bit of bulbous, a sliver of serif, a touch of italic. And, I’m sorry ... but that exclamation mark is the best ever ... it’s freakin’ waving at me ... hi there exclamation mark ... I’m waving back at you ...
Now boys, go finish that typeface. For reals.
Today’s match was a “friendly” so we won’t be declaring a winner, but if you want to vote just post a message to Twitter that contains #lyt and either #simonson or #bruhn. Tune in again next Friday for a really, really experimental live Photography Exhibition Match, and make sure you have your Free Season Tickets for news, contests and a way for you to play.
Play by play commentary for this match is provided, as it happens, by Grant Hutchinson.
Congratulations to Mig Reyes, Layer Tennis Season 3 Champion.
Thanks to all the players, commentators and fans who made Season Three of Layer Tennis a big success. And thanks to the crew at Goodby Silverstein & Partners and all the folks at Adobe Creative Suite for making it possible. Watch this space (or sign up for Season Tickets or follow us on Twitter) for news about some special exhibition matches being planned and about Season 4.
Cast your votes on The Championship Match. Both Finalists will receive invitations to play in the post-season tournament for Season Four.
Here's how the voting works. Decide who you'd like to declare as winner and then simply tweet their first name following a hash mark. Either #mig or #noper and, this is important, also include #lyt in that tweet. We'll leave the voting open all weekend and announce our Season Three Champion on Monday.
