This year I decided to attempt 36 Days of Type for the first time.
If you haven’t come across it before, 36 Days of Type is an online challenge of typography and creativity, involving designers, illustrators, type lovers and creatives from all around the globe.
This is the 7th year, and in previous years I have admired so much of the work that has been created, but have never attempted it myself.
This year I have been loving working with abstract mark making and I started applying my patterns and textures to shapes and letterforms and really loved what was happening. The timing of these explorations happened to work perfectly with the launch of this years version of 36 Days of Type - so challenge accepted!
There are 26 letters, a new letter gets released each day on Instagram with the hashtags #36daysoftype #36daysoftype07 #36daysoftype_A (etc.), and then there are 10 numbers.
