Creative Lockdown Project: Rainbow alphabet

Creative Lockdown Project: Rainbow alphabet

This is the sixth creative lockdown challenge. These challenges are designed to be a bit of fun and to document our time collectively spent in lockdown, this one is also intended to say a huge THANK YOU to everybody who is working to keep us safe. Please share the project with friends and post your final results on social media with #CreativeLockdownProject. If you also tag #TypeTasting I’ll be sharing some of the results.

This week’s project is inspired by the wonderful rainbow alphabet (shown above) created by my very talented friend Miho Aishima for the children’s ward at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich and community group @NunheadKnocks. She designed a rainbow typeface and created posters for kids who can’t get outside to see the rainbows out there. You can download Miho’s rainbow fonts here.

Create rainbow letters to spell out a phrase to say thank you to all the healthcare professionals and key workers who’re working so hard to keep us safe at the moment. Put your finished phrase in your window for all to see or share it via social media.

Your letters could be rainbow-shaped, they could be in rainbow colours or they could change magically as we look at them. Maybe they feature other elements like sunshine, animals and birds? Or they could feature images of how key workers are helping you to feel safe, from the postie who delivers your post to the nurses, paramedics and doctors who are saving lives.

Share your finished project on social media with #CreativeLockdownProject. Tag #TypeTasting as I’ll be sharing some of the results.

See you soon,
