All love letters are ridiculous

Today’s assignment from DS106 is “What the font: take typographical elements (perhaps even the words of a story) and bring them to life.”

After reading a participant’s blog that she used imagechef for this assignment, I decided to give it a try. There were different shapes to chose from (butterfly, sun, raindrop…) When I saw the shape of an envelop, I immediately typed in the text box “All love letters are ridiculous”, which comes from a poem by Fernando Pessoa.

This is the result:

Using imagechef.com was pretty easy. If you are not satisfy with the way letters are arranged, you can hit the Rearrange button to try again. Lucky for me, I liked the first version.
