36 Days of Type: 2021

Daily letterform experiments

Media: experimental typography, motion graphics

When: 2021 (6 weeks)

Client: Self-initiated

Tools: Illustrator, AfterEffects, Procreate, and more...

Goal: Continue exploring typography with letterforms, challenging myself to use different styles every day.

36 Days of Type is a project that invites designers, illustrators and graphic artists to express their particular interpretation of the letters and numbers of the Latin alphabet. Every year it’s an opportunity for creatives worldwide to come together on Instagram, sharing their creations of the same letterform.

After exploring poster compositions with my previous daily challenge, I participated in the challenge to focus on individual letterforms. Further, I challenged myself to use unfamiliar techniques and graphic styles.
