SIMPLES VS. WILDSTYLE: Letter Progression
Simples - Graffiti letters
WildStyle is defined in the Urban Dictionary as a graffiti style involving complex, interlocking
letters with arrows, link-ups and other flourishes. Wildstyle is the stuff you absolutely can't
read unless you have studied it or know the writer who did it.

Here's a perfect example of WildStyle by graffiti writer
Meres One, who is a master of this
technique. The secret behind this kind of complicated writing is this: no matter how much you
deconstruct, break apart or transform a letter, the structure of the letter has to remain intact.
In other words, an "A" still looks like an "A" and so on. Look very carefully and you will be
able to make out the letters "M-E-R-E-S". It's not easy. Learning to read this kind of
complicated wildstyle takes some practice. It is like a secret code.

5 Pointz:
The essence of the graffiti artform is to take a simple, basic letter and modify into a more
complex form.

Simples are letters that are easy to read, like Straight letters and Bubble letters.
Indie 184 and Seen are two examples of graffiti writers
who work with Simple letters.
