For Remembrance Day

#11ofthe11th #remembranceday

As older veterans pass away I would like to see Remembrance Day evolve into an occasion for remembering why we should value peace over war.
I had a grandfather who was a genuine Lighthorseman.

Remembrance /  Memorial day is this Tuesday.

Chi Rho Challenge 2

Here's a logogram of the letters C H and R joined.

#chirho #chirhochallenge #sydney #typography 3design

Download and use it as a starting point for come up with something better?

and if you're better than me at editing nodes and please help other challengers with an improved version. This should work as a drop cap for documents but I suspect some bumps and odd curves will show at a larger size.

Here are two variants I created using #inkscape 

Spread the word about the #chirhochallenge 

visit here for more ideas or if you're a better type design suggest improvements?

Lets see if we can create some interesting  typographic art using the #chirho theme and #inkscape or #gimp or your digital software preference. Tag it #chirho or #chirhochallenge on Twitter FB Google plus or anywhere.

Look up ChiRho first.

Now you do not have to use Greek letters or Celtic Uncials unless you want to but please use a C or a Greek Chi x a H and an R or Rho?

Here's a couple of ideas I had !

These are COPYRIGHT even if they are just samples of design process.

Starting in #inkscape I created this.

After exporting a png version to #gimp I added some drop shadow.

I like the letter combo of the C and H  but that R needs work! Maybe darker or a different font? 

Back to the svg stage in Inkscape . I'll show you the next version in a few days!
