The Portmanteau Archive

Branding, Websites

The Portmanteau Archive is a personal project that involves illustrating the great variety of portmanteau words.

A portmanteau or portmanteau word is a combination of two or more words, and their definitions, into one new word. The word “portmanteau” comes from the English portmanteau luggage, which is a piece of luggage comprised of two compartments.

Every portmanteau on the site includes three graphics, or more depending on how many words go together to make the portmanteau.
