Hermes Mazali has shared his take of the series 36 Days of Type and thought it would totally deserve its own feature on abdz. You know how much we are personally fans of this initiative and it's always inspiring, intriguing, and exciting to see how much people are talented and proud to share their work. Hermes went all out with a set of language that shares a common contrast combination of colors, probably to replicate and support its concept.
Dima Abrakadabra shared his submissions for the #36DaysofType and thought it should totally be featured on ABDZ. Aside from the style and the aesthetics, this series totally caught my attention because I am currently the Japanese language, more specifically the 'hiragana script' for starters. As much as it is hard to learn something new as you are likely less wired as you get older. For this roundup, Dima took the visual approach to be playful on how the typography will be displayed through its kerning almost graffiti-like.
I think we feature each year the work of BÜRO UFHO for 36 Days of Type. They are a duo of brand specialists located in the beautiful city of Singapore. Each year, they would inspire us with a beautiful set of type that we couldn't resist featuring on ABDZ. This year, they are going ahead with a lighter set of colours but definitely keeping within trendier tones that we have seen getting popularity.
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.
We have discovered the work of BÜRO UFHO . through ABDZ on Instagram. They are a great example of the lovely things we see on #abduzeedo. As for their project, it was for 36 days of type that invite everyone into art to create a unique design of the alphabet. Everyone has their own style which makes it quite diversifiable. Hope you will enjoy!
There are many design challenges out there but my favorite has to be the 36 days of type. The idea behind this typography project is simple, designers, illustrators and graphic artists have the opportunity to express their particular view on letters and numbers of our alphabet. It started when Nina Sans and Rafa Goicoechea, two graphic designers based in Barcelona, first decided to challenge themselves to design something new every day. The main goal was to experiment with new things while facing their routines by setting daily design challenges.
We here over at Abduzeedo are fans of the 36 Days of Type typography challenge. We have been posting some of our favorite entries and every time we do we tend to say that it was the coolest. Which is not an overstatement. The problem is that the next day we go and find another entry as cool or even cooler than the previous one. In reality, that's far from a problem. It's just amazing to see how much creativity is out there and the design community is as prolific as never before.
