New Project: CELL[F] STARTED

I have begun a new project and thought that’d be worth sharing today. Won’t be writing a great deal on it, but a picture is worth a thousand words so sharing this illustration is two blog posts…. Right?

I recently had to teach myself how to use InDesign to do a school project, and it’s been making me think about typography, so I thought, “Wouldn’t it be funny to make a series of illustrations playing on the word ‘cell’ and lay them out nicely!” Of course, in true me-style… I ended up making it look serious and moody. I may tweak them further to play around with aligning the text different ways, but here they are…

Three squares with cells drawn in them reading "seldom" "self denial" and "selfish" with pun spellings.
Thoroughly unclear science communication

And another version with more attention paid to aligning elements. Not sure which I prefer.

Three squares with cells drawn in them reading "seldom" "self denial" and "selfish" with pun spellings.
And now with some alignment everything is SO much clearer.

I’m not sure what they mean. I have almost a dozen of them sketched on Post-it notes. I plan to keep going. It’s certainly not any kind of educational science material… but it does have its wit. Maybe sometimes wit is enough.
