International Women's Day 2023

For the fourth year in a row, we are excited to be collaborating with International Women's Day (IWD) 2023 and launching our yearly lettering challenge. 

The 2023 theme is #EmbraceEquity and it's and it's all about fully embracing gender equity in every aspect of our lives.

Imagine a gender-equal world.

A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.

A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.

A world where difference is valued and celebrated.

Together we can forge women's equity.

Collectively we can all #EmbraceEquity.

We continue to be so inspired by the amazing work created by you the Typism Community over the last couple of years, so we're collaborating with IWD again to invite female lettering artists to show their support for the IWD Women Creatives Mission by creating artwork that highlights this year's new campaign theme 'Embrace Equity'.
