Vote. A message endorsed by the letters V, O, T, & E.

Our readership is international, so we hope you’ll excuse an entry dedicated to today’s elections in the United States. But we all know that the American President has the power to change the world — for better or worse — so here are some reminders from a few of our most persuasive and compelling communicators. Incidentally, the word “vote” – with its diagonals, straights, and rounds — is a great way to demonstrate a typeface’s character while we push people to the polls. The images below are clickable and embeddable, so feel free to post them on your website or blog today, whether you’re in Jacksonville or Jakarta, because we all have a stake in this election.

  1. You’ve made it a difficult choice. Dancer gets my vote (and Farnham…oh, and Amplitude).

    Word. :)

    Congratulations on your new President-Elect, my dear American friends.

  4. I think a vote for an American Design is appropriate here. One vote for the classic Avant Garde!

    and congrats!

  5. P22 Bifur & Broadsheet for me. With Bifur, it was love at the first sight (i found him in a local bookshop http://design.scolar.hu/forma-muveszete.html 2nd picture).

    Broadsheet is a honest type and simply beautiful.

  6. Voting for president was a no-brainer.

    But picking just one of these typefaces? Not so easy.
