36 Days of Type is a project that invites designers, illustrators and graphic artists to express their particular interpretation of the letters and numbers of our alphabet.
A 36 day open call of restless creativity, where participants are challenged to design a letter or number for each day, showing the outcome of the ability to represent the same symbols simultaneouly and from thousands different perspectives.
A project that aims to be a space for creation around typography and its endless graphic possibilities.
For each edition, participants share their artworks via Instagram. To take part, first check the official dates in the calendar designed for each edition and then upload your contribution to your profile making sure its uploaded on its corresponding day. Always add the project hashtag plus the daily hashtag, as the only way for us to identify your artwork and allow it to be seen by others.
From all the daily entries, a curated selection by our team will be published on the 36 Days of Type Instagram account, as well as other social networks related to the project.
If you can make the 36 days in a row, that's the big challenge! In case you want to participate for few days or just a single letter or number, do it your way and remember to check the calendar first.

Also have in mind that typography and letterforms are the main interest of the project, therefore all works should be related.
On it's release, the official calendar indicates the exact submission dates for each letter and number for the current edition.
Please remember to upload your artwork on its corresponding day, using always the project's and the daily hashtags to register your work, and for a chance to be featured in our gallery as well as seen by others.
