We are big fans of the 36 days of type on ABDZ, in fact we have featured the project and the submitting artists several times. Now they are back bigger with a collaboration with our friends from Adobe. To give designers and type lovers a chance to show off their type design skills, win a one-year Creative Cloud subscription and be featured on the 36 Days of Type Instagram account. The rules are simple. Build your own designs and to compare with the 26 letters of the Latin alphabet (A-Z), plus ten single-digit numerals (0-9), 36 Days of Type will run from April 4th through May 8th and feature a single letter or number each day. Any designer, illustrator, artist or hobbyist can submit their creative take on the daily letterform via the #36DaysofType and #36days_[letter/number] hashtags on Instagram.
36 Days of Type is a project that invites the creative community to express their own interpretation of letters and numbers and share it with the world.
In their words
New this year, judges including Adobe Fonts’ Senior Manager Dan Rhatigan and Foundry Relations Manager Ariadne Remoundakis will vote on the most innovative, creative and unique letterforms, and award six winners a one-year Creative Cloud subscription.
