alphabet contest: finalists ROUND TWO + voting

by Grace Bonney

Now that the first round of finalist voting for the Design Your Own Alphabet contest has finished, it’s time to start with group two! You’ll have one day to choose your favorite from this talented group of 10 artists and then tomorrow we’ll vote on the last group of winners. Details on the voting process are below.

Today, voting for the Finalists (Part 2) will start and stay open for one full day, from Tuesday, November 16th, 1pm EST through Wednesday, November 17th 1:00pm 1:40 EST. Voting will close right as the third group of finalists goes up tomorrow. Each group of finalists will have one day of fast-and-furious voting and then, on Thursday at 1pm, we’ll announce the top three finalists from the week’s voting and you’ll get to vote one last time to choose their order (1st, 2nd and 3rd). Friday, we’ll announce the order of the winners and they’ll receive their prizes: $500 from Veer and $250 from Design*Sponge for the 2nd- and 3rd-place winners.

I’ve previewed the second group of 10 above, but you can find more information about each artist and see their full alphabet designs below, after the jump. When you’ve picked a winner just vote in the poll below (after the jump, after the full list of finalists)! Everyone can vote once, so please choose your vote wisely. Congrats to everyone in the first group of finalists! xo, grace
