36 Days of Animated Type

The 36 Days of Type Challenge is an yearly open call for artist all around the world to bring the letter set and numbers to life. For its 6th year, Barcelona-based Motion designer Albert Oriol collaborated with 36 creative individuals to animate individual letters and numbers. By tapping a wide range of unique styles of illustrators, Oriol’s conclusion result may be a highlight reel of differences in plan. From a Bauhaus-ish B to a graffiti-inspired Y, the energized letters and numbers expand, bounce, pixelate, and vanish. You can view more of his work on his Dribbble account.

I contacted 36 designers and illustrators with the idea of animating a unique letter/number from each artist. The goal was to carry out a worldwide collaboration with 36 artists. I also wanted to challenge myself to try out different animation styles that I don’t usually get a chance to work on. The project has been an absolute success, far exceeding my expectations!

For those of you who don’t know, “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”

Finally, 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! And thank you to the more than 3000 people that have started following me over this past month. Your comments and support have made this all worth it.
