For the word geeks

This one is for the word geeks…and the graphic design geeks. The challenge was to “create an image out of a word, using only the letters in the word itself.” The single rule? “Use only the graphic elements of the letters without adding outside parts.”

I think “vertigo” and “voyeur” were my favorites. But it’s hard to choose.


About Fletcher DeLancey

    Wonderful! I liked ill, and exit. But I think the sound contributed just as much to the understanding as the “images” did.

    Yeah, I can’t see how the book would work as well, unless every page is like one of those greeting cards with sound. But that still wouldn’t solve the need for motion. I liked “robbery” and “eclipse,” but could completely relate to “fast food.”

    After reading your comments, I searched a sample of the book and, to my surprise, I could see the power of the graphic design, which is somehow lost in the animation. I mean, the video is fantastic, but the book is too, in a different way.
