From small stories on post-its
to having fun on the screen in 2 hours!
In 2010 designer Anne Ulku, and writer Van Horgen, created Six Word Story Every Day(SWSED), a daily storytelling exploration through language and typography. It was inspired by the work Ernest Hemingway regarded as his greatest: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”
In 2011, Anne accepted and curated submissions from writers and designers all over the world who created their very own six word stories.
That’s what I thought, she said.
