Typographic Olympics, surfing Dubai, Twitter vending machines and more in our weekly look at the web

To encourage graphic designers around the world to channel their inner jock in honor of the upcoming Olympics, paper brand Conqueror recently held the Typographic Games. Over 1,700 designers responded, with entries as varied as the 60 countries from which they came. South African designer Graeme Gauld won the gold with a beautifully illustrated letterform poster, earning him a trip to the London games this summer.
