The "High Priority" typographic illustration in each week's New York Magazine — you know, that gorgeously designed graphic at the start of the listings section — is a sought-after gig for a designer. It's usually the work of an invited contributor, and the invitations go to some of the top designers and typographers in the world. For this week's new issue, though, New York teamed with the design blog Speak Up! to run an open-call contest, welcoming anyone to submit an entry. The winning effort, by Spencer Fruhling of Richmond, British Columbia, is on page 109 of the magazine (well, okay, and also above); other top contenders are at underconsideration.com/hp. Check 'em out.
