I was going to make a downloadable typeface for this entry, but decided this would have a more interesting result, I’ll probably do that within the next few weeks if I can think of a good idea. I was thinking of this saying… do everything in moderation. For the most part I think it’s pretty important and try pretty hard to stick to it. So I gave myself some restrictions to spell the words out with objects from the garden. Giving myself 58.216666666666667 minutes in total, each letter ranging from 7 minutes (the first ‘D’) to 3 seconds (the final ‘N’), gradually having less and less time to create each letter form. That time included finding and arranging the plants.
D (7 minutes) O (6.5)
E (6) V (5.5) E (5) R (4.5) Y (4) T (3.5) H (3) I (2.5) N (2) G (1.45)
I (1.3) N (1.15)
M (1) O (.45) D (.40) E (.35) R (.30) A (.20) T (.10) I (.6) O (.4) N (.3)
