To be second recipient of the Tokyo Type Director’s Club RGB Prize is a great honor. Graffiti Markup Language was created in part to encourage open source collaborations between diverse creative disciplines. Although a lot of interest is from programmers and graffiti writers, to receive this recognition from a well established design group is a huge achievement for us and we hope a testament to the potential wide appeal and open collaborative possibilities that can stem from something as simple as a file standard.
