Exercise:Choose two words from the list below:

Compression

Contraction
Addition
Subtraction

Also, create a “new” word, which has no dictionary definition, and a meaning that only you know.

I did a good amount of sketching as there were many I liked, though I didn’t feel too inspired (was very sick all week) here are some pics:

Addition with the T as a plus sign, then the word Addition MAKING a plus sign. Meta. Add-ception.

My made up word is ‘Vertilted’. It sounds like a Yiddish insult but it isn’t. It’s the made up word I would use when I would create a 3d model and the vertices looked very off. The Vertices are tilted – Vertilted. Or it could be a Yiddish insult, who knows.

This is the initial sketch, done in 3D letters naturally, and from a tilted perspective.

Then I put it in Illustrator:

In High Impact Colours that remind you of the 90's. Also, 'Vert' in french means green so...no there's no excuse for that.

In High Impact Colours that remind you of the 90’s. Also, ‘Vert’ in french means green so…no there’s no excuse for that. The Ver are straight, then the tilted go down in height in a slope, I used slight line work to accentuate the differing angles.

I made 2 of the other words:

Subtraction

Migration_arrow
