36 Days of Type Series
'36 Days of Type' is an annual online event hosted by the Instagram account @36daysoftype. It is an open call to designers all over the world to participate in the challenge of creating a letterform each day over 36 days. Below is the full series I completed for the 2017 event - A-Z and 0-9. I set myself a challenge of designing with as much typographic variety as possible.
My colour palette was inspired by a trip to Melbourne's NGV gallery the week prior to the challenge where I swooned over the use of colour in David Hockney's 'Arrival of Spring' series. The colour palette aims to tie in the alphabet and numerals as a collective series when viewed together. Each letterform was first lovingly drawn by hand before being vectored and coloured on the computer.
