Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography Contest
It is time for another Typography contest! The theme of this contest will be… Bring your Type to Life This may sound abstract at first, but to keep the theme as open as possible, I choose a rather abstract title. There are many directions in which you can go. You could choose an anthropomorphic direction, where you breathe life into letters and give them human or other animate characteristics.

4th should have been 1st.
1st should have been 2nd.
2nd should should 3rd.
And then 3rd should have been 4th.

The fourth one sent the clearest message in my opinion. If I was driving on the freeway and I saw that, then I'd understand the message real fast.
