The word I selected for this assignment is Flexible because sometimes I feel we live in a concrete minded world where things have to happen a certain way. With a little flexibility (as I did with the X in the word) in our mind or heart or attitude can make a huge difference and make life more interesting.
I know it sounds cheesy but I had to think of something to say and this is what I came up with. 🙂
1. Bound: I chose to bind each of the letters in order to depict the meaning of the word and placed them at different levels to mirror the sounds made during pronunciation.
2. Kiss: I used a font with serifs so that the s’s would have a place to meet.
3. Wharf: (n) A pier where ships or boats are tied up and loaded or unloaded. (thefreedictionary) Some of the letters are intended to resemble ships docking into the others.
3 random word choices. the “m” in “mouthing off” is symbolic of lips while the “o” is meant to be symbolic of an open mouth. the two extras ff’s suggest a talkative run off.
I used the two t’s in rotate to express a rotation around the letter a.
I used the dots over the i’s in winking to symbolize the act of a wink.
This is my submission for the Expressive Type Exercise.
