The Graphic Lexicon Poster Series

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Graphic Design / Posters (Graphic Design) / 2016

A celebration of the stories – fact and folklore – behind English words, symbols and punctuation.

How words have been constructed, how syllables come together to create new meanings, and how the meanings themselves morph as the world moves on...

Newly constructed words were produced using the flat running sheets from the book itself. The title was overprinted on each section - hiding and highlighting parts of the words.

A series of 12 posters.
