Following on from my previous post, this is the number section of my 36 days of type challenge for 2019. 


I chose to create my numbers in a more abstract and patterned way than I had for my letters. This little series is probably one of my favourite things I have created in a long time... I actually wish I had used this method for all numbers and letters now... maybe for 2020...


The number series works in a colour sequence through the rainbow, with each number becoming slightly closer to its neighbouring colour. When positioned all together you can see the rainbow and psychedelic pattern effect really well, I think I was quite inspired by the '60s!

36 DAYS OF TYPE | NUMBERS

This year I took part in the online creative challenge 36 days of type. I have followed this series for a few years but never joined in, until now! The challenge runs over 36 days with 26 days being dedicated to each letter of the alphabet and then the remaining 10 days for numbers 0-9. I chose to separate the styling of my letters and numbers, creating 2x mini-series. 

My letter "theme" was very simple. I exclusively used watercolour and pen and decorated each letter around its own personal identity, EG/ A is for animal print, B is for blue etc...

It was a really fun and interesting challenge, quite a departure from my usual abstract pattern work and I am already thinking about what I can do for next years edition!

36 DAYS OF TYPE | LETTERS

This monthly prompt list has helped give me a focus and creative spark during my early maternity leave. I spoke about the challenge before in my creative winter update but seeing as I was able to finish the whole month, I wanted to dedicate a full post to it. 


I find the simplicity of the doodle-a-day prompts so easy to follow, they always spark something in my imagination! They are also quick (you post once a day) so there is little time to second guess yourself but a lot of time for experimentation.
