Using the concepts of typography and silhouetted images, create a set of two visuals using only letters of the alphabet in different letter sizes and colors. In cryptology, ciphers like "asdfghjk" can be decoded as messages like "password". Therefore, create two dual visuals of the same image - one with the cipher gibberish, and one with a decoded message! This can be done either as a digital image collage or using newspapers/other resources to form the visual photos. Additional improvisation is welcomed - underlay a photo under your cipher typographic images, etcetera!
