project 1: six word story

Six Word Story Every Day (SWSED) is daily storytelling exploration through language and typography. It was inspired by the work Ernest Hemingway regarded as his greatest: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

For your first project, design a poster that communicates something about yourself. In some large or small way, obvious or discreet, silly or serious, it’s up to you. The objective of this project is to get to know eachother’s design sensibilities and thinking. It’s also a great way to get your work posted and share with others.

Project Specs:
– Stories need to be exactly 6 words, with each word included in the design
– File dimensions: RGB, flattened JPG, 900 pixels by 675 pixels

I will be submitting your work to SWSED to be featured on the site. After the next class, please email me: your final JPG, story text, your full name, website & Twitter links.

This project will be reviewed in-class digitally. no need to bring print outs.

Next week an amazing designer is paying us a visit, Catherine Casalino.
