36 Days of Type — An Animated Collaboration


“36 Days of Type is a project that invites designers, illustrators and graphic artists to express their particular interpretation of letters and numbers of our alphabet”


For this year’s edition, I decided to contact 36 designers and illustrators with the idea of animating a unique letter from each artist. The animations were posted daily on Instagram from April 2 — May 7.

The goal was simple: carry out a worldwide collaboration with 36 artists. However, this turned out to be much more complicated. Not everyone responded to the messages and emails which made it difficult to envision the scope of the work to come. Despite that, everyone that responded was really welcoming and open to the idea of seeing their work animated. In the end, the project was an absolute success, far exceeding my expectations!

I also wanted to challenge myself to try out different animation styles that I don’t usually get a chance to work on. Furthermore, I wanted the alphabet to be packed with as many animation techniques as possible: traditional animation, 3d animation, character animation, 2d animation…

I would like to give a huge thanks to all of the artists that let me animate their work. Thank you for making this project possible!
