For this exercise, we were instructed to find an idiom and depict it through type as an image. Webster’s dictionary defines an idiom as “an expression that cannot be understood from the meanings of its separate words, but that has a separate meaning of its own”. I chose the idiom “go down like a lead balloon”. As in the case of all idioms, this expression is not to be interpreted literally. This expression is used when describing something that is a failure or considered to be completely unsuccessful or unpopular.
