Australian-born, Boston-based designer Dan Fleming has a very keen sense of typography and form. In this series, Word Animals, Flemming pushes the boundaries of letterforms to achieve illustrative representations of animals using the letters in their names. Some certainly work better than others, but we love the series as a whole. Licensing the designs to a kids’ clothing company wouldn’t be a bad idea… seems like the perfect audience for these fun, thoughtful designs. Vaguely reminiscent of another set of animal illustrations (here).

Advertisements

There’s something to be said for visually arresting advertising… when few or no words are necessary. And it’s ironic that this series promoting, of all things, Scrabble, uses barely any words at all. Yet we immediately get what is being conveyed. Russian/Ukrainian creative agency Twiga developed these terrific ads that could probably stand on their own as surrealist prints. They really are superb examples of Photoshop mastery. We’d love to see more… the possibilities are endless. Loosely reminiscent of this campaign.
