Too Small


A little typographical experiment I threw together in 2008. It's not aimed at anyone in particular, but might be useful in... those impossible situations where you want to convey this traditionally aggressive message with melancholy tone!

Not small?

I am not sure why you "DECIDED" to call this one small, it has lots of different "SIZES" going on in terms of font and wording. I think the coloring of each word is nice, and this seems to follow that trend at the time of words being used as art the different ways you can position them. I love the overall little ester-like eggs hidden around, the smile faces, they are just lightly added and you have to look closely to see and it all looks great the way you did that. It was subtle and nice and it made me smile looking at them. I think the world is big enough for the both of us. Have you seen Canada? it is just land, land, land, and they don't share it! I think there is lots of space is the world for all of us, but the saying is a nice one to re-create and use here. Nice "COLOR" selection for each letter and nice use of space, but I would have like some shadows and maybe make the text more 3D. A background would have been nice, maybe just a speech-bubble like background around the text to give it a bit more fullness and body. I wish you also made this font yourself but I see most of it is just a program and that is something I wish you would not shy away from, because I do enjoy when you use your own fonts. Overall not bad tho.

Add some king of background around the text and font and then maybe make the font more 3D and use your own original font that you tend to draw.

Goes with the message, I think? The world not being big enough? Yupp, think this style had a peak of popularity a few years back, but t's still very much a thing. The background hmm... I had the gray pentagons there, but maybe they're a bit faded... thanks for the review!

I think overpopulation's going to be a pretty big problem in the future btw, large masses of land or no, we're consuming too much... but this one wasn't really about that anyway. XD Good to hear you've got a positive outlook on that!

But.....we ARE in the same world.................but it's not BIG enough...............SOUNDS LIKE MY DI-okay just kidding BUT IF THE WORLD ISN'T BIG ENOUGH FOR YOU AND ME..............I guess we should kill ourselves and let Hank take over the world. That'd be a great idea.

Cyberdevil responds:

Well it's not aimed at anyone in particular, just might be useful in... those impossible situations where you want to convey this traditionally aggressive message with melancholy tone! XD A world with only Hank though hmm... gotta be someone left to see it or it won't be much to see!

Dunno what my emotional response is supposed to be, but this is a great work of art.

Cyberdevil responds:

Well I don't know who this is aimed at so... no emotional response necessary. :) Thanks!
