The Panamarican School of Art and Design have a very clever advertising campaign as created by AlmapBBDO, São Paulo, Brazil. An array of either x’s or o’s are printed on to a surface (paper, walls, doors, t-shirts, etc), upon which creatives are encouraged to manipulate, modify, enhance in an effort to develop as many symbols, glyphs or images as possible. Very cool.

Check out the post for some more insight and some really great links.
