What is this? It’s one of my creations from typeisart.com, a really fun interactive project inspired by Susanne Cerha’s absolutely brilliant typography poster, Parts of a Character. The Flash interface allows users to create designs using fragments of letter forms which are neatly arranged along the bottom of the screen—a nice palette of shapes. If you are even slightly interested in typography and letter forms or if you just like to create abstract designs (as I LOVE to do) you must give this a try. Show off your designs by saving them to the public gallery and when you’re done check out some of the typeisart swag. Who knows, maybe one of your—or my—designs will end up being selected for use on some of those items. I really want the silkscreen poster, but will have to settle for the tote-bag or a T-shirt. Oh and some stamps!!
Be forewarned; this is highly addictive.
