Class: Rebus

In this class we were instructed to create multiple rebus’ using Adobe Illustrator. (a rebus is a puzzle in which words are represented by combinations of pictures and individual letters) to do this we generally placed found images and then applying effects etc to them. Rebus need to be simple and clear, as misinterpretation is very easy. They should be as basic as possible.

I liked to use “shades of gray” on the images I used as black & white looks simple and clear. I find the lack of colour makes it less distracting, mainly though, it’s just a personal aesthetic preference.
