Word as image

A brilliant and creative way to have fun with letters!

This project started nearly twenty years ago as an assignment in Ji Lee’s typography class at art school. Students were encouraged to see letters beyond their dull, practical functionality. They played with their unique shapes and tinkered with their infinite possibilities. The challenge was hard, so the reward of “cracking” a word felt great. This became a lifelong project for Ji Lee who also published a book that showcases nearly 100 word images, along with tips to help you create your own and share them at www.wordasimage.com.
