Pangram Shuffle

Pangram Shuffle is a series of letterpress posters playing around the shifts in meaning that can occur when changing the word order within a sentence. In the instance of letterpress and in order to test fonts, I decided to use a pangram containing all the letters of the alphabet within a meaningful sentence.

The well-known French pangram «portez ce vieux whisky au juge blond qui fume» (lit. Take this old whiskey drink to the blond judge who’s smoking) is manipulated and becomes «portez ce whiskey fumé au vieux blond qui juge» (lit. Take this smokey whiskey drink to the old blond man who’s judging). 


Process – casting letters


Process – inking and drying
