fun with letters

Don't remember where I picked up this design technique, but thought I'd share a fun way to design artwork from letters.

1. Using Illustrator (or any design program really), pick a cool font and type a single letter (the design above uses the letter "P").
2. Make a copy and rotate the second letter 45 degrees.
3. Make a copy of the second letter and rotate that another 45 degrees to make a third letter.
4. Keep making copies and rotating letters until you have as many as you want.
5. Building off of the first letter, pick a central connecting point and arrange the letters to make a design.

The possibilities are endless!

And because I love quotes and fonts...I designed a little quotation artwork.
