The Big Word Project is redefining words. Search for your word and link it to your website. Your website is then the new definition. Simple. Want to know more?

An ‘Obscure’ site

The word ‘Obscured‘ was redefined today and now points to Obscure Inq.

“Obscure Inq is the webring of seven writers, who claimed the seven days of the week as their own. Each day, one of the seven updates, making your week brighter and more exciting. So read up and watch your mood soar and productivity plummet!Every day entertainment for the everyday stiff.”

What an intriguing idea! What better way to get a wide variety of content everyday? And with a schedule like this you can follow your favourite writer on his/her particular day.

Obscure Inq is an intersting approach to Mass collaboration, a concept which greatly inspired us for The Big Word Project, so check it out if you want to ‘watch your mood soar and productivity plummet’, which we do everyday :-)

Great use of photography

Television rules the nation

Here’s a few words which have been redefined to popular tv shows! We’re particularly big fans of a few of them so thought we would share them with you all.

Skins [Skins]


Skins revolves around the lives of a group of 16–19 year-old friends. A fantastic ‘no holds barred’ show which is one of the most realistic representations of the messed up lives of today’s youth, and also a personal favourite of ours. Series 2 has just finished and it has been revealed that they are axing the entire cast for series 3. Bold move but we’ll definitely be tuning in!

Shameless [Shameless]


Shameless is another brilliant show which is side-splittingly funny and tragically dark at the same time. Some amazing characters and twisted plots make this another favourite of ours. Series 5 has recently finished and filming for series 6 has just started, we’re looking forward to seeing Frank and the gang back in action.

Afterworld [Afterworld]


“Welcome to Afterworld on Channel4, a tale of a world trying to recover from a cataclysmic event that has changed life on Earth beyond all recognition. 99% of the population has vanished and all technology has been rendered useless. Russell is going to have to go through hell and back if he is going to be reunited with his family 3000 miles away.” It’s available online so check it out!

BBC Switch [Switch]


BBC Switch is the brand for BBC content aimed at UK teenagers and pre-teens, from ages 12-16. There’s a variety of television and radio shows available on their site. We recently got to see around the headquarters in London courtesy of a mate of ours, Barry (aka Barryoke).

Banzai [Banzai]


Banzai is an amazingly funny show which features characters like Mr Shake Hands Man, who maintains a handshake with a celebrity for as long as possible and Lady One Question who poses as a celebrity reporter, asking a single interview question and then staring silently at the interviewee. Viewers are invited to bet on various things throughout the show. It’s a great show and you can watch some classic episodes on the site.

Sky Showbiz [Showbiz]


Sky Showbiz is your one stop shop for all that showbiz news.

Word of the day

Television - the broadcasting of a still or moving image via radiowaves to receivers that project a view of the image on a picture tube.

Hello Finland!

Interactions now points to, a design company based in Finland. Nordkapp ‘create contemporary brand interactions and innovations, seizing on those special moments that happen in the constant dialogue between people, brands and technology.’ Quite a mouthful you might say but these guys do everything from interaction, graphic and web design to interior design and branding.


We particularly like the navigation on their site. It’s one long page and you jump to the different anchored sections, but it’s less of a jump and more of a smooth, romantic boat ride. :-) Their design is really plain, just black and white, but it’s really effective. You can tell they are a high class company, even before you get to their showcase. Some impressive work in there, check it out!

Kiitos Nordkapp!

Word of the day

Interactions - the act or process of interacting.


What…awesome word! Chris Gregori chose to redefine the word Awesomeness with his portfolio site No longer does the word mean the quality of being awesome, but it now points to a very talented illustrator’s body of work.

Chris Gregori

Chris, a freelance illustrator and musician has made a lot of work for some pretty big names, including one of Paddy’s favourite bands, Arcade Fire. Some of his postcard designs are great, well worth a look and you can purchase them at his Etsy store. You can also follow his blog to find out about his latest work and what he’s up to.

It’s really hard to work ‘awesomeness‘ into a sentence…er…Chris’s website is the epitome of awesomeness. How about that?

Word of the day

Awesomeness - the quality of being awesome.

4,000 redefined words and counting!

We’ve reached 4,000 redefined words! Thank you so much everybody for making this project work! We really appreciate all your support, we couldn’t have had the success so far without everyone who has bought words and blogged about us.


Special thanks to the purchaser of word number 4,000 who redefined ‘Luggage‘.

We look forward to reaching 5,000 and beyond!

Word of the day

Thanks - to express gratitude, appreciation, or acknowledgment to.

‘Plain’ for all to see

Here’s another great site submitted to The Big Word Project.  The new definition of the word ‘Plain‘, is, the portfolio site for Sean Salmon.  Sean describes himself as an “Interaction Designer, Creative Technologist, and recovering Architect” and his work is fantastic!

His projects are fascinating and range from social experiments to architectural designs.  We especially like the Little Brother, Dollar,  and Turno projects.  We got a giggle out of the Dirty Colours project as well because we’re geeky, immature web designers. :-)


As we are all about the simplistic design here at The Big Word Project, is a shining testament to simple design.  His navigation system on his homepage is really unique and his lack of unneccesary clutter allows his impressive work to speak for itself.  It is quite appropriate that his site is the new definition of the word ‘Plain‘.  Have a look through his projects and be inspired!

Word of the day

Plain - with little or no embellishment, decoration, or enhancing elaboration.

Go Outside!

The guys behind redefined the word ‘Outside‘ to point to their really sweet site. Paddy has fallen in love with their little pully tab thingy. It’s so much fun to pull it out and watch it spring back. Go on, have a go!

Outside Source

Apart from the hours of fun supplied by the springy tab, the site is also really well laid out and you can find information on their projects and services really quickly. They also have a great video showcasing what they do and proclaiming their matra ‘Go Outside’. In fact Paddy is going to take their advice and go to the park right now!

Great site guys!

Word of the day

Outside - the space without or beyond an enclosure, institution, boundary.

Calling all single nerds

Find, your, dorky, matchmaker, matchmaking, relationship, personals, romance, nerds and matching all mean one thing. Find Your Geek is a dating website dedicated to nerds searching for their true love who shares their interests in Star Trek, comic books, CSS or whatever it may be. Paddy is sourcing dates as we speak!

Find Your Geek

Word of the day

Creative use of words

We stumbled upon this site through the word ‘Zephyr‘. KC Dyer has come up with a neat way of having fun with her words. She has made cool little sentences on her blog using the words she has purchased.


We love stuff like this. Anyone else done anything creative with their words?
