Z is for Zipper. I used a random font for the Z just as a guide. Then I used Blend to create the teeth of the zipper. Had to look various times at my jeans zipper. Then a simple background to make it pop out.

P is for Pixel

J Adam Brinson

P is for Pixel. I took a Rosewood capital P at 20 pixels, blew it up 32x, traced it with squares in Illustrator, then used the Scriptographer script Variator to get the subtle differences in color.

I'm a freelance graphic designer in Seattle, Washington. Check out my work at jadambrinson.com.

A is for Apple

Toya Debrew

A for apple. Hi my name is Toya Debrew and I wanted to do the simple classic A for apple. I used a cartoon font and kind of morph into a apple a little. I used a texture picture and blend it with the background . My work can be found at toyastudios.deviantart.com Hope you like it!


B is for Balloons

Toya Debrew


B is for Bribery & Bad Business

Michal Jedinák

B is for Bribery. Bad Business habit :o). I took the letter B from Rockwell font, made pictographs of a banknote and a hand, and used four circles to create somewhat shifty looking eyes. Then I duplicated the result, flipped it, took away the banknote and adjusted a little. Done in Inkscape.
My name is Michal Jedinák, I work as a translator and in my spare time I try to do creative work. Some of it can be seen on tumblr.
Thank you for the challenge!
