Layer Tennis: Edit that layer quick

Layer Tennis has been around a few years, the premiss is simple. Two designers swap Photoshop, Flash, and Illustrator files back a forth in 15 minute intervals trying to out design and out smart each other. A moderator maintains a running commentary on this exercise of speed and wit. After 10 “volleys” all the fun comes to an end and everyone in the inter-web gets to vote for a winner via twitter.

This Friday (today) two of my favorite designers are going head to head; Aaron James Draplin and Chris Glass. Both guys are amazing designers having recently created beautiful logos for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. If you’ve never seen Coudal’s Layer Tennis today would be a great opening act to check out.

Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack edit
that layer quick.
