Six Word Story Every Day (SWSED) was created by the designer Anne Ulku, and the writer Van Horgen, in 2010, when they created 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.”
The creative community keeps SWSED alive by giving to other designers the opportunity to create their own stories.View and enjoy some excellent works here.
