Each letter of your name represents something about you. You can combine more than one thing within a letter. Each letter must connect in some way with the next letter in your name. This series of letter images represent you. As you work, Think Deeper.
Think Deeper: Your personality has many different aspects. Each letters should reflect a part of your personality. Think about the colors you wish to use. Think about how to include patterns, textures, and shading. Think of the outline of each letter – will it be bold, tall, graffiti type, short, etc. How will each letter connect to the next? Next time someone asks you your name, flash your name image. It’ll say a lot about you without you having to utter a single word.
