The Visual Dictionary

all about the visual dictionary

The Visual Dictionary is a collaborative project to collect as many photographs of words as possible.
We aim to do this by asking you, the user, to send us your images of words, whether they be signage, advertising, graffiti, packaging, menus, written in the sky, tatoos, or made of grass - if its a single word, we'll gladly accept it!


why Good question - and not one we really have the answer to. It is just a nice idea which should be visually stimulating and interesting, but in time, once the dictionary has more words, there could be plenty of applications for the content, perhaps creating 'ransom note' style emails using images from the dictionary, delivering a word of the day, converting your text into images as you type - the ideas are unlimited.

We'd love to know what you think about the project, critical or otherwise. You can email us through our feedback form.

who's behind the dictionary?

shmuck Matthew Knight came up with the concept and developed the site itself. In time, we hope to increase the number of people directly involved. Initially we'll be asking our users to get involved by moderating images and comments and generally looking after the content.

keep posted

If you've registered as a user you'll automatically receive the occasional email from us, letting you know of any substantial updates, but the easiest method is to read the TVD blog.

You can follow it here in plain ol' blog stylee, or its RSS feed if you're into that sort of thing
