For the last 76 months — that would be 6 years and 3 months — we have been uploading what has amassed to more than 5,400 Word Its by more than 1,800 individuals. It has been both an arduous and enjoyable task. On behalf of everyone that has participated we humbly and proudly bring Word It to a close, thanking everyone that made it possible.
We hope you keep finding outlets, online and offline, for your creativity. Our archives will remain active for as long as the UnderConsideration network stays afloat.
All the best,

Thanks to the WordIt founders and contributors for creating such a fun and provocative forum! The archives are an amazing record of six years of visual creativity. When I heard the news that WordIt was closing, shortly after I discovered the site, I decided to start PictorialMatter to keep a monthly word depiction challenge alive on the web. I'm aware that the new site is following in some pretty big footsteps! But the challenge that WordIt posed is a timeless one, and I believe there should be an outlet for those who want to continue exploring this fertile ground. Please visit and help keep the visual dialog going.

Hi- I'm a middle school teacher in a public school in S.F. Hey I just found your site and thought it great for my students for inspiration and possible participation--but you're ending! Darn, I'm too late! Any suggestions for other sites like this?

Celebrating the reality that print is not dead by showcasing the most compelling printed projects.
Describing, tracking and explaining culture, commerce, politics, media, sports, brands — everything possible, really — through design.
