From the DPW Sign Shop:
Black Rock City Street Sign Design Project Invite!
Spring is upon us and it's time for a new DPW Sign Shop tradition.
We've got the theme and the street names, now we want you!
We are seeking participant font design submissions for use on
a section of 2005 Black Rock City street signs.
Please design your font for the entire alphabet and the numbers

If you'd like to submit a design, please illustrate a sample of the 2 street
signs "Hysteria" and "2:30".

Submissions are due on April 15th.
If your design is selected, we will contact you with a list of the section of
street signs to be done in your font. You will then have 1 week to produce
the masters of your street signs, so please make sure that you have the
availability to meet this schedule before submitting your design.
