A Surge in Six Word Stories

Chank

Can you tell a compelling story in six words? That’s the concept behind Six Word Story Every Day, which is based in Minneapolis. The founders—local designer Anne Ulku and writer Van Horgen—posted a a new story with graphic design on their blog each day in 2010. The result? Lots of attention. Soon enough, writers and designers wanted to contribute, such as Minneapolis-based designer Chank Diesel. Wish granted. Now the project is open to the masses, garnering praise from design site Imprint. The results are pretty cool. Go on, creatives. See if your six-word story can make the cut.
