    After I heard about the contest I immediately thought 6² (6 Squared). It was a little daunting, but I created 36 lettering treatments for the number "6". They are relatively simple and vary from clean vector compositions to hand-drawn elements. I stuck with the Squarespace branding and used a monochromatic color palette.

    The shot cycles through all the treatments and a bigger version is attached to see them all together.

    I also created a basic font with all the "6" versions that you can download here.

    @Birgit Zimmermann Ha! I cranked on it over the weekend :) I can work pretty fast if I have a clear goal/concept in my head.

    This may actually be my new favorite. Brilliant work, this must have been an intense process.

    @Brian Lovin It was pretty cool focusing so much on a single element. I could see how beneficial this focus would be on a mark or lettering project. It would probably take too much time for a regular project, but it would give you time to really explore.

    Yeah, you win. Retina MBP headed your way.

    Don't forget to tag 'squarespace6'. It's a requirement and I'd hate to see you DQ'd for something goofy. Well done, Ryan.

    @Ryan Putnam I think the most impressive aspect is that you felt comfortable straying away from simply modifying the number. For example the whale bent into a '6' or the owl on the branch - just incredible creativity there. Love it.

    @Roy No, they are just displayed by subject matter. The first ones are a little more ambiguous, then the more type treated ones, and then the hand-drawn ones. I played around with a couple different sequences, but this seemed the best. To tell you the truth, I'm not sure what order they popped into my my head :)

    @Ryan Putnam, simply awesome. i love how it is so your style and didn't go about it as something you 'think they'll like". would love to hear how many hours you actually put in for this.
