This thread is part of the Translator playground: a place for translators to have fun, to network, to learn, and to hone their translation or linguistic skills. See the announcement here.

Need a quick break from work? In this forum translators and language professionals can share quotes about translation, tongue twisters and word plays, translation challenges, etc.

All are welcome to participate and to add new items to this and the other areas of the Translator playground; have fun with it! If you need help or would like to propose an addition to the Translator playground, contact site staff through the online support system.

This video is based on the work of Ji Lee, a NYC designer who works for Facebook. The challenge was to create images from words, using only the letters contained in the word itself—and using only the shapes of the letters, without adding extra parts.

You can watch the video here.
