Font haiku contest

Font haiku contest

A favorite font
Praised in glorious haiku
Could win you free stuff

It's true.

How to play:

1. Choose your favorite Veer font.
2. Write a haiku about the font.
3. Tweet your haiku with the hashtag #veerfonts.

Each day, one winning submission will be typeset in the appropriate font, and its creator will get a Veer T-shirt. Each month, the best of all winning entries will get $250 in Veer merch. And a very covetable grand prize will be awarded to the best overall submission.

Contest ends December 20, 2011.
