Medium – Words That Matter 2017
This December, our collaboration with Medium.com goes live, as part of their end of year pop-up publication. In a series of essays, Margaret Atwood, Hillary Clinton and many other influential voices reflect on the words that defined the year. These words, front and centre to each story, have been brought to life by a selection of our talented artists.
Creating a lead image for each post, the chosen word was rendered in a style indicative of the writer and themes at hand. With such an open brief, the resulting illustrations are as diverse as they are beautiful. While some artists worked in vector, 3D or traditional drawing, others infused subtle movements to form typographic gifs.
All in all, we witness the powerful effect of text and image, working together.
