This job is to design a set of shaped crossword grids. The size of the shapes can vary, depending on how many squares are required to get a good result. Because the grids are for making crosswords in, the design must consist of large contiguous pieces that can be filled with interlocking words. Attached is a simple example.
The final work can be done using the demo available from [url removed, login to view] - see the currently supplied shapes as examples of what is required. The deliverable is a Crossword Compiler grid library file containing the set of grid shapes. Shapes required are:
Chemistry (e.g. mixing flask)
Crescent (as in Red Crescent)
Cross (as Red Cross)
3-leaf Clover (St. Patrick's day)
Instrument (e.g. horn, guitar)
Two other distinctive shapes of choice
