Who knew words could be such fun? Logos shouldn’t ever be boring, with a little bit of creativity anyone can transform everyday words into memorable designs and concepts. Just look at the work of the talented Ji Lee, who has taken a collections of popular words and brought them to life by adding a sense of character, fun and playfulness to them. Ji has released a wonderful book titled “Word As Image” which showcases nearly 100 examples of his own personal witty designs, plus he’s provides some great insights and tips on how you can create your own.
Here’s what he had to say about his project:
“When we were children, letters were like fun toys. We played with them through our building blocks. We colored them in books. We danced and sang along with TV puppets while learning C was for “cookie.” Soon, letters turned into words. Words turned into sentences. Sentences turned into thoughts. And along the way, we stopped playing with them and stopped marveling at A through Z. Anyone can create a word as image. It doesn’t require any design or drawing skills. All you need is a little creative thinking and to see words and letters in a different way. The dictionary is filled with thousands of fun visual puzzles just waiting to be solved.

In the meantime, here’s some example of Ji’s work to inspire you!
