A portmanteau is a blend of two words into a single, synergistic new word, like:
- California + Mexico = Calexico (or Mexicali)
- Lion + Tiger = Liger
- Frisbee + Golf = Frolf.
As it turns out, the word “portmanteau” comes from a fancy Old French word, which translates to suitcase.
Portmonteau is the creative blend of my illustration and design in a single portfolio.
