not long ago, i discovered a very awesome project of one of my talented colleagues. josh started word ink back in 2009, but has recently reinstated the venture . . . which is exciting for us because it's one that we all get to take part in!
this is how it works: josh relates word ink to a word processing plant for which you provide the fuel.
once you start following the project on twitter (@26symbols), you submit a word of choice (keep it clean, people).
as time allows, josh will letter your word and tweet you a link back to the blog!
because word ink is all about celebrating lettering and words, he prefers not to do names, but your words can be legit, made up or blended, as you'll see in some of his previous pieces. styling is based on interpretation, so it might be illustrative, calligraphic, casual, etc.
fun, right??? isn't he talented?!?
if you're so inclined, he's back in full force. submit your word to @26symbols to see what he comes up with!
