The rules are simple. Two designers. One letter. One day. They are given the letter in the morning and somehow have to find time to make a unique and freaking cool letter. The winner is decided by a poll.
*UPDATE* With a combined total of 131 votes, Ivan beat out the competition by snagging 70 of those votes! Congratulations!
The q’s are queued up for your votes. We have a three-way battle between Chris Holder, Ivan Ivanov, and Jared Brown.
Who made the Better Letter #1, #2, or #3?
*UPDATE* By only one vote, Michael’s calligraphic j takes the cake!
Bree Heiss vs. Michael Arestad!
The letter j is nowhere to be found on the Periodic Table of Elements! It’s the only letter that didn’t make the cut.
*UPDATE* By a staggering 31 votes, Michael’s moustachey-O claims victory over Bree’s leafy nega-O.
O SNAP! It’s time for some O love!! Bree Heiss and Michael Arestad! O YEAH!!!
*UPDATE* Despite the clever reflection in Michael’s P’s glasses, Bree’s crazy lines beat out his comedic approach, perhaps just this once.
Perfect P’s? Well, not exactly, but they sure were fun to do. Bree Heiss and Michael Arestad are at it again!
Which is the Better Letter?
“Perfection is boring. Getting better is where all the fun is.”

*UPDATE* Michael takes his design skills to the bank with a sound beating of Bree’s spacey H.
So much H, so little time! Bree Heiss and Michael Arestad take on H, most commonly used to measure cap-height because it is a flat bottom character.
“You can do a good ad without good typography, but you can’t do a great ad without good typography.” —Herb Lubalin
*UPDATE* By 14 votes, Bree’s watercolor x beat out Michael’s rice x. Congratulations!
Bree Heiss vs Michael Arestad in the battle of the x’s. Yes, that is indeed rice. Believe us when we say it took all of our restraint to not just do an X-Men x.
” I’m the best there is at what I do ….but what I do isn’t very nice . ” - Wolverine
*UPDATE* All those dots, couldn’t beat the calligraphic flare of Michael’s B! He claims victory by 10 votes.
Graphic design can happen anywhere and on anything. Better Letter presents: Battle of the Napkin B’s!!! Michael Arestad and Bree Heiss strike again!
Did you know Paula Scher first drew the mark for Citi, a multi-billion dollar company, on a napkin?
They are given the letter in the morning and somehow have to find time to make a unique and freaking cool letter in one day. The better letter is decided by a poll. The first showdown is Monday, January 2nd 2012. That is, of course, assuming there is no apocalypse.
