Hit the jackpot with this one! I couldn't believe it when I opened Randomword.com this morning and this was my word.

I decided to go for a bit of humor, using royalty free icons from the Noun Project. I started with an intro screen. I also knew I wanted to use motion in this sketch.

I mocked up a second screen, un-sure at the time if I was headed toward something more interactive or ambient. Gid main

I realized my rules allowed for storyboarding but any animation would have to be executed in code. For my purposes, I decided to storyboard the remaining frames.

7 in 7 Design Constraints

  1. Each piece will be themed around a word that will not repeat, chosen at random from http://randomword.com.

  2. To provide context, the featured word must be present in the piece, but no other words are allowed.

  3. Any time-based media (like motion and sound) must be created procedurally.

  4. The only colors allowed are black, white, and gray.
