Ladies and Gentlemen,
It gives us great joy to announce the long-anticipated winner of the first annual Typophile Tee contest. But first let's thank our judges, Rich Roat (House), Jonathan Hoefler (HTF), Erik van Blokland (Letterror), Carlos Segura (T26) and Cyrus Highsmith (Font Bureau), who gave of their time to help us select the winner today.
We'll thank our judges by sending them copies of the winning tee for themselves and their staff.
Without further ado, our winner was: shirt # 29.006, submitted by Mark Simonson!
