Side project: Type Fight.

thumbnailThe side project series is a series of posts in which we’ll be taking a look at the best of designers’ side projects. To get things started, this week we’re going to be looking at Type Fight, a side project by designers Drew Roper, Ryan Paule and Bryan Butler.

Type Fight plays host to weekly fights” in which two designers are asked to create a typographic treatment of the same character and then have their final designs voted on to determine whose is best. So far, Type Fight has hosted 61 guest fights between design heavyweights such as Alex Perez, Rogie King, Brendan Pittman, and Aaron Eiland, to name a few. There is also an ongoing battle between Drew and Ryan, who are now due to face off for an 11th time.

At the moment the site is on hiatus whilst currently being redesigned. However, you can still check out the old site and all of the fights that have previously taken place.

Here’s our collection of some of the highlights:
