Since announcing my 100-day project last week I’ve designed and shared my interpretation of 10 punctuation marks in a graphic style via my Instagram account, and thought I’d share my progress here too.
I wasn’t sure how I would represent each punctuation mark or even if I needed (or wanted) to have a cohesive ‘look’, but a certain bold minimalism seems to have emerged in a daring, limited palette of black, white and red.
I’ve used ink, pen, pencil, cut-out paper, card and letters, and computer-generated brush-strokes so far to depict:
Exclamation marks, the SarcMark, a ‘cacophony of commas’, the ‘m’ dash, a colon, square brackets, the Asterism (three asterisks in a pyramid formation), the apostrophe, double quotations and a question mark.
There’s still 90 days to go and I’m asking myself: what’s next?
