“When we were children, letters were like fun toys. We played with them through our building blocks. We colored them in books. We danced and sang along with TV puppets while learning C was for “cookie.” Soon, letters turned into words. Words turned into sentences. Sentences turned into thoughts. And along the way, we stopped playing with them and stopped marveling at A through Z,” says the author about his lettering designs.
“Anyone can create a word as image. It doesn’t require any graphic design or drawing skills. All you need is a little creative thinking and to see words and letters in a different way to create these cool designs. The dictionary is filled with thousands of fun visual puzzles just waiting to be solved. Visit www.wordasimage.com to submit your clever designs.”
