    Default 12 >> Group 8: The Techniques - Best Use of Text

    BEST USE OF TEXT

    BEST USE OF TEXT best use of text BEST USE OF TEXT best use of text BeSt usE oF TExt... annoying?

    Okay, enough with the typing, but this is afterall the category for the best use of text and that includes the many ways that it can be used to give character to a piece. Whether it's the fonts that you use, the style you do your text in, big words, little words, blended words, patterns on your text, outlines and shadows, it can be any numbers of tricks of the trade to make your text stand out or make your wallpaper stand out. This category is all about celebrating all the a-text-tion to detail of our words :P

    We had 48 wallpapers nominated in this category (with 4 not eligible) and so we will be having 22 awards again, with 15 placements, 5 runners up and 2 honourable mentions hiding behind those spoiler tags.

    If you're done reading this boring bit (if you actually read it say TEXTACTULAR in your reply, lol, I want to see if anyone does it) on with the awards!

    WOW quite a bit of awards up there! But seriously, the awards just keep getting better and better! I am in awe. I mean, Demetreas and JJ, those awards are just amazing. I love 'em!

    Congrats to all the winners! My top picks were Aureola, Lyn, Demetreas, Xinyi, and Nikki! You guys use text in ways that I could never imagine (like Xinyi, how did you even make that piece?! it's entirely made out of text and it's pure genius!!). Bravo!

    Erin and Jj, the awards you made are FABULOUS!!!! Should get awards themselves haha! (Maybe next year we could vote on the previous year's award making - because that's not convoluted...)

    Anyway, shout outs to Demetreas, Xinyi and Lyn - you guys were my top three

    xinyi, this is typically me after looking at your arts:



    You are so amazing at text, in particular. Like, all the time. I hate you.

    Other tops were: Alexandra, Signe, Aureola and JJ.

    Text is sooo hard you guys. We all know it. Even if we manage to make it look good, it was a struggle getting there.

    MORE STUFF.......

    WiccaJaZ: WOW!!!!!!! Your award is incredible. I've seen similar ones in typography tutorials but I can never pull it off that well. ooh and it's miiiiiiiiine.

    Also, Erin Nicole's is super cute. I like it.
