SWAP x TYPE

Swap Watch has collaborated with 30 Type artists in the Philippines to come up with designs that celebrate the hand-written movement. These pieces can be converted into inspirational/motivational reminders to everyone, which, I think, is such a brilliant idea.

Here's a preview of all the designs:

I made a design that is close to my heart so that everyday, when I look at the time, I will be reminded to take it easy and live life freely. It's actually my personal mantra and I hope you guys like it! You only have this life to live after all - so don't waste it sulking over things you cannot control. Step out of your comfort zones and do something new! 

To kick start the launch of the #SWAPxType collab, I'm giving away a watch with my design + Black Strap (as seen in the photo above). Here are the mechanics:

1. Follow @swapwatch and @aninarubio on Instagram

2. Like my Facebook Page: facebook.com/anina.rubio

3. Post a photo of your adventure/s and tag #ARxSwap 

4. You can join as many times as you want but PLEASE DO NOT TAG ME! Just use the hashtag #ARxSwap and make your posts public so I can view your entries. Those who do not follow instructions will be disqualified.

Giveaway will run from September 27 to October 4. I will announce the winner on October 5 :)

If you want this watch, you can purchase it here. Buying any watch from the #SWAPxType collection gives you a chance win the SWAP LAUNCH GIVEAWAY (different from my giveaway) and have your own watch customized by you or your favorite artist (from the roster of 30 artists in this collaboration). Support Local! xx

 

P.S: I will be doing a Brush Lettering Class in collaboration with Swap Watch this coming October 17. Sign up details on this link.
