The series will include a feature of text art brilliance, as well as a small add-on of typography pieces submitted in the last 24 hours. Every issue will contain a new challenge from our Typrompts as well as information on the ongoing events as well as a list of useful resources. For everything texty your heart desires, read on!  :la:

Digital Text Art: What do you think about it?

The second article of the series is already out:

Digital text art: What do you think about it? 2
A news article based on a survey featuring dedicated typography artists talking about today's digital text art. Some gorgeous works included.  :deviation:


Typographers Inside and Out

In order to gain an in-depth insight in typography as well as to pay tribute to some of the most renowned text artists, we're conducting a series of interviews with tistwas, pica-ae, shoelesspeacock and more! You can now read the interview with Anne, a.k.a. pica-ae

:bulletred:Typo Masters: Interview with ^pica-ae
Our Text art GM, pica-ae talking about her art, her experience as a gallery moderator and her group typoholics.



Alongside our Love Letter Contest we decided to run a small series of challenges to help get your creative juices flowing. Everyone who participates will be included in a special feature at the end of the Type Your Heart Out event and if there's more interest, perhaps we will add some additional prizes.

Typrompt No.2

Our second typography challenge is called FailBlog and requires you to pick one of the unfair things about the world and life and then represent it in the most resentful fashion so that the viewer can feel the displeasure trickling from it. It can be anything from PMS and how the washing machine keeps eating your socks, to racism or how your ex-boyfriend left you. Let off some steam by pouring your aversion in a typography piece, make us feel just how wrong and unfair it is.

Rules for participation
Submissions send via note to me, drop-asd with "FailBlog" as the subject. The work will be included shortly in the group's gallery. Don't forget to mention in the work's description that it is made for this prompt and add a link to this article or to the group's page. Remember, we only accept new works created specifically for this challenge, otherwise the very aim of the prompt is lost.

I am looking forward to your entries!  :la:


Constructive Comment Corner

We are aware that to all of us aspiring artists the most valuable thing (besides exposure ;)) is feedback. It helps us grow, perfect our art and find our artistic path through the insight of others.
We also understand that not everyone has the time to give lengthy critiques so here is what we present to you:
Digiversity officially invites you to take part in this give-and-take activity, in which you leave a constructive comment on another fellow deviant's work and they return you the favour. You can submit pieces you want feedback on via note to me (drop-asd) and I will add them to a special folder in the gallery, which you can browse to find work you want to comment on. You may only submit one work at a time, though, i.e. don't submit another one until you've received and returned a comment, or ultimately until after five days from the submission. Only digital text art accepted for the time being.

Credits to 3wyl for the idea.
