Charm City Type Challenge

This all-ages event (for designers and non-designers alike) builds upon last year’s Instagram-based “race” to spell a phrase using typefaces found in Baltimore. This year, we’re challenging contestants take part in three distinct challenges to compete for prizes. All team members will explore Baltimore using non-motorized transportation (crab-walking, jump roping, rollerblading, and cycling are all fair game).

A judging panel will select winners based on teams’ scores in the following three categories:

  • Most Creative Letter Arrangement
  • Best Costume (Halloween is only days away; make the most of your costume!)
  • Scavenger Hunt: a list of photo challenges will be posted on the day of the challenge
