As a designer its always good to challenge yourself, it keeps you sharp and lets you experiment with new ideas that you may choose to bring across to client work. There are a few daily design challenge that exist out there as well as designers starting self initiated daily projects but 36 Days of Type really caught our eye due the scale and diverse nature of work being produced.
36 Days of Type began when Nina Sans and Rafa Goicoechea, graphic designers based in Barcelona, first decided to challenge themselves to design something new everyday to later post them on their social networks, as a way to experiment new things while facing their routines by setting personal daily design challenges.
The first inspiration to create the project came after Victor Bregante (graphic designer from Sitges and good friend), suggested the idea of involving more people doing the same challenge, and after this, the idea of making the same exercise globally and simultaneously came out. Then after turning back and forth and sharing their ideas with friends and others colleagues that were involved in the process, they ended with the idea and the words that explain the project like it is right now, that has proved to be a 36 day celebration of type and creativity, that involves designers, illustrators, type lovers and creatives from all around the globe.
