Typographic Scavenger Hunt for SF Design Week

Will you be San Francisco June 21-27? Join us at AIGA SF’s San Francisco Design Week both virtually and in person.

Those of you on Instagram can play along with our Typographic Scavenger Hunt:

  • Spell out Exploring the Creative Overlap (the more pictures to do this the better) using found type around San Francisco
  • Add to your photo map so we know you’re in the City by the Bay
  • Tag our Instagram account @FontShopSF in your posts
  • Use hashtags #SFDW and #FSTypeHunt
  • Post from June 21 to June 27

We’ll pick our favorite set and invite the winner to lunch at the FontShop offices with our Design Team.


You can also meet our staff in person at events throughout the week. We’re especially looking forward to Friday’s Opening Reception and next Monday’s Pixels of Fury event. We’ve teamed with Shutterstock on the latter to add the FontShop Plugin to the competitor’s toolkit. Can’t wait to see the great creations from this fun night!

    Question: Is it only for those IN SF? Or all the Bay Area? I’m up in the North Bay and would like to participate!

    Janina – Thanks for your question. Because this is the first time we’re doing this and it’s centered around events happening in the city, we’re keeping it small. We’d love to see some North Bay typography though, so please feel free to tag us anytime. Also, we’ll keep your request in mind for future Instagram adventures.

    I second Janina’s comment for the Peninsula! I’m in Palo Alto / Cupertino and would love to join in. But it sounds like I can only join in unofficially? :-\

    You’re certainly welcome to unofficially participate. We’ll definitely expand this in the future.

    Hey Meghan,

    My friend and I would love to join in! Could we participate as a duo? (:

    I’m confused about what we’re spelling out. Do I have to spell out ‘Exploring the Creative Overlap’ in its entirety?

    The prize is only for one, but you should be able to do this easily helping each other out!

    Yes! And however creatively you’d like to do that.
