TRY THIS PROJECT

1. Pick a random text message from your cell phone.

2. Using office supply labels (squares, circles, or rectangles), construct modular letters that spell
out the message. Use the content of the message to shape the letterform design.

3. Convert the letterforms into vector graphics using the Live Trace command in Adobe Illustrator.
Arrange the letters into a full lowercase font.
