Express Your Font Love In Haiku To Win A Prize Pack, including $50 iTunes
There's another Valentine-inspired type contest, over at the Extensis blog.
You know that you've got a favorite, we all do. That dirty little secret that makes your document "pop" or your new design scream "Look at me!" Yup, we've all got a favorite font that we use.
In honor of Valentine's Day, it's time to express your feelings publicly for your beloved. And what better way to express one's love, but in poetry!
Bring us your proud bold words (in 5-7-5 format) that describe your feelings and admiration for that which we all love, fonts.
To make this little public expression of your infatuation more interesting, Extensis thought that they'd offer some nifty prizes for the best of the bunch.
First place will garner:
$50 iTunes gift certificate$25 Starbucks gift certificateThe übercool Greg Lamarche custom Extensis laptop skin (removable sticker)Extensis "We Serve All Types" t-shirtThe undying admiration of web surfers far and wide.
Second place will be honored with:

Third place wins:

Here's a little inspiration from the previous Helvetica Movie Haiku contest:

It knows you'll be back.
