  • MARCH 2017 CHALLENGE | RANSOM NOTE

    Hi, Jennifer here bringing you a new challenge for the month of March... the Ransom Note Challenge!

    Have you ever written someone a ransom note? (If you have, I need to hear more about THAT story!).

    In typography, the ransom note effect is the result of using an excessive number of juxtaposed typefaces. It takes its name from the appearance of a stereotypical ransom note, with the message formed from words or letters cut randomly from a magazine or newspaper in order to avoid using recognizable handwriting.

    This month's RANSOM NOTE CHALLENGE will require you not only to include at least 50+ words' worth of journaling on your layout, but also mix various alphas and word strips into the text, as well. Your layout should shoot for having at least 25% of its journaling made up of the random alphas and word strips (with the other 75%, max, being a font or fonts of your choice).

    Here is a look at the page I created for this challenge...



    Here are the rules of this challenge...
    • Create a layout including 50+ words worth of journaling
    • 25% of your journaling should be a mix of alphabets & word strips
    • Your layout must be loaded into the gallery no later than 11:59pm ET on March 31st, 2017
    • Once you've loaded it into the CHALLENGE GALLERY, leave a comment in this thread and link us back to your project in the gallery
    • Once you've posted your project here in this thread... copy the URL of that post and add it to the MARCH 2017 TRACKING THREAD
    • Have fun!

    well I didn't quite make it! That is ok, I had fun trying, but out of 71 words, I only used 11 fonts/word strips, and when I added more I didn't like it! it was a great challenge though, thanks!

      lol, caliten a Stake YW adviser is the name of the job I do at church. A stake is an area (basically 7 towns in this case), and there is a president and 2 advisers who support the youth group leaders in each town (the youth group leaders for 12-18yr old girls - the organisation is called Young Women - YW for short). In effect we plan, organise and run a social event each month, and a camp each year, and support the town youth group leaders in any way they need. Sounds simple, huh!?! It is a voluntary job, and I love it, and right now it is one part of who I am! Maybe I should have said, I'm a Mormon!

      not being of the Mormon persuasion myself, I'm not hip to all the lingo, obviously. What you're doing sounds like an enjoyable volunteer job though, and I'm glad you identify with it!!
