As a small final project for my GD201 - Graphic Design Context and Experience, we were assigned to create rebus puzzles. A rebus puzzle is a visual puzzle that uses typography and iconography to suggest a hidden meaning, usually referential to a common idiom. For examples, you can google image search for "rebus puzzles."
My phrase was "no ifs, ands, or buts."
Early iterations can be viewed below.
