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 our ideas with friends and others colleagues that were involved in this process, we 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.
Additionally, if you want to know more in depth about the project, or if you have any suggestions, side projects or sponsorship offers, feel free to contact us whenever you want. We’ll be happy to help with anything that is on our hands
In each edition, 36 studios, designers or graphic artists are invited to create the opening letter or number of the day, their artworks are one of the core areas of the project as we like to involve professionals and new emerging talent into our creative community.
This project would have never been possible without the love and support of many people who believed in the idea and contributed with us in many ways, from the 36 guests contributors of each edition to every person supporting and spreading the project.
The list below includes some friends, studios and media whose collaboration and support has been crucial now and then. We are also deeply indebted and tremendously thankful to all creative minds who participate every year submitting their artworks, you are all the soul and the project itself.
Thank you all, we love you!
