36 Days of Type is a project that invites designers, illustrators and graphic artists to give heir particular view on the signs from our alphabet. The project happens every year on instagram. Simply follow their account, create your own alphabets and put #36daysoftype hashtag.
I decided to challenge myself to participate in this as part of One Hour Gallery project, trying to look at each letter in a different perspective, turning them into characters with personalities and background stories.
