A Graphic Message

Thursday, 28 July 2011   |   Creativity Challenges

CameraIt's said that a picture can tell 1000 words.  But what if the words are portrayed in pictures?  Could you construct a piece of writing that is more than the words that make it up?  Words are powerful things.  So are pictures.  They both have the ability to convey a strong message and to evoke emotion.  Combine the two and you can have a bit of fun.

Your challenge this week is to create a collage of a statement or poem.

To do this you will take pictures of the actual words and then assemble them all together into the final image.  Where you find the words is up to you.  They could be on street signs,  on shop front windows,  in advertisements etc.

The statement or poem could be one you like, or one you create yourself.

You could make it more interesting by setting a challenge.  You could for instance say that you will make it completely out of images of street signs or entirely from pictures you take at your local shopping center.   Be creative.  There are words all around us.  Where are you going to draw your inspiration from?

 

Remember to check back next Friday when our next Creativity Challenge will be released.
