GRANSHAN Competition: History & Results 2012
This exhibition combines the results of the first years which are focused on the categories of Armenian, Cyrillic and Greek with the results of the competition 2012, meanwhile widened by Indian and Arabic. It shows how the beauty of language can flourish in script.
The GRANSHAN competition is presented by the Armenian Ministry of Culture and Typographische Gesellschaft München. The impressive diversity and variety of script exemplify the importance of its local identities. In turn, this leads directly to the winner of the GRANSHAN Grande Price Nokia Pure illustrating the economic importance of script.
