Political pangram
0

I recently showed an illustration of a flag with an “@” as the party symbol… Anyway, Now I’m looking for some political/revolutionary pangrams! :)

Something like this, but written like a pangram:

“The strength of the party is the unity with the motherland”

I’m really out of ideas, and my english isn’t that great… Anyone care to help? It should ideally contain “the party”, but anything that sounds political is good.

Thanks

Richard — Cool poster/project.

When do you need this by?

Pangrams typically yield clumsy results…liquored nymphs and cozy lummoxes…your politik seems more focused…and is anyone going to know that it’s a pangram…besides you and all of us?

Maybe you want a slogan or a catch-phrase?

Also, how important is it to use all 26 letters?

It’s due tomorrow. I’m printing it on a inkjet in a semi-huge size… 1000x1400 mm.

I know that pangrams often yields clumsy results, but I feel it would be nicer than just writing the alphabet. One way around might be to collect a few of the typical catch-phrases for the revolutionary parties, and do some sort of text collage…

I think it would be nice to use all the letters, but it doesn’t neccesarily have to be one sentence now that I think about it.

Thanks

POLITIKAL WORLD DOMINATION

The strength of the party is the unity with the motherland. We are a beacon of light in the zone of urban jungles. Lack of belief will lead to verbal quarantine.

Not a single sentence, but I think it looks quite political.

Ok, here’s what I sent to the printshop. I forgot the “V”… stoopid me :)

politikal

I decided to keep the cyrillic influence in the k, dunno why… but I think it works.

This will be huge, 1 x 1,40 m!

Richard, if it’s not too late…

You misspelled “strength.”

I hope it’s not… Their deadline wasn’t tomorrow though. Hopefully they haven’t started. If it’s printed, I guess I could fix it with a scalpel and some glue. :(

Richard, just an observation, no need to rush and change anything: The UC “B” seems to be standing out too much.

Yeah, it doesn’t work all that good when negative. It’s sort of funky because of the anti-aliasing also, illustrator doesn’t do a very good job on that all the time.

The lower portion was a rush job, and since it has got a typo, I’m thinking (if it’s not printed yet) of scrapping the idea with a pangram all togheter, and just use it down to the world domination part.

It will probably have a greater impact (it will look bigger!), but I will not get to show my typeface.

I like the illustration better though, so we’ll see :)
